There was an introduction and a presentation before the concert by Labinot Kelmendi explaining the concepts and ideas that surround the project and creating a theoretical parallel of the work in regards to how the artist use the visual medium, the language medium in combination with her compositions.

As far as the program goes there were a number of 9 pieces played which included the projects “House of Being” — an independent project including visual work and “Eletno” a project realised in 2016 as part of the “New Etno Music” series organised by KSMT-Kosovo Society of Music and Technology in Prishtina,Kosovo.

Within the CRI we explore mny new ways of working within disciplines, the example we had here included a musical use of language and video as a support for language as a medium.

We also got to see how not only standard modern instruments but also traditional ones can be used in a non-traditional way, and an eclectic mix of styles between traditional Albanian, Asian and Oriental harmonies and modern rhythms, use of words in a musical representation within the context of the different works.
