Construction from Antiquity to the Present Day

Lecture accompanying the exhibition Idea – Ancient Greek Science and Technology

Lecture by: Prof. Dr. Jernej Klemenc, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Ljubljana

The artefacts of ancient peoples’ technical solutions provide invaluable insight into the development of natural and technical sciences (mathematics, logic, hydraulics, construction, seamanship, building technology, etc.), which laid the foundations for today’s high-tech world. As illustrated by the IDEA exhibition, the areas of hydraulics and construction had considerable infrastructural significance already in antiquity. That is why we have decided to embark on a journey through time and delve into these scientific disciplines with the lectures: Hydraulics from Antiquity to the Present Day and Construction from Antiquity to the Present Day



In cooperation with the Alumni Club of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering

Human Nature and Social Relationships: Games People Play

Macaques – Monkeys that Could Teach Machiavelli
Featured guest: Dario Maestripieri, PhD
Hosted by: Patricija Maličev


Among other subjects, Dario Maestripieri, an Italian primatologist and a Professor of Comparative Human Development, Evolutionary Biology, and Neurobiology at The University of Chicago, conducts research on macaque monkeys (Macaca mulatta), highlighting the many parallels between the social behaviour of rhesus macaques and human beings. The macaques live in hierarchical communities and, according to Maestripieri, display Machiavellian intelligence.

Los Voluble: Flamenco is not a crime

Los Voluble: Pedro and Benito Jiménez, DJ

The amazing deejaying twosome will lead us deep into the innermost recesses of flamenco. In their audio-visual show, a classical party morphs into a bizarre artistic expression, allowing access and hands-on experience exclusively at night-time. Inspired by the "free party is not a crime" movement, Los Voluble present a project in which flamenco and electronica intersect with critical culture and political video remix. Pedro and Benito Jiménez propose a direct approach to flamenco and its contradictions in connection with other musical genres, including gqom, footwork, experimental dub, grime or reggaeton.

Los Voluble have been producing eclectic dance sessions nourished by audio-visual experimentation for two decades. Their live dirty mixes blend archival material, global electronic music and live cinema to bring us closer to their reflection on the heterodoxy of flamenco, the Roma culture and party as political action.

Ana Kravanja & Samo Kutin and Abacaxi

Double concert

Ana Kravanja & Samo Kutin, Slovenia
Ana Kravanja, viola, hand-made instruments, sound objects, voice; Samo Kutin, hurdy gurdy, tampura brač, hand-made instruments, voice

Abacaxi, France, Germany
Julien Desprez, leader, guitar, light; Jean Francois Riffaud, bass, light; Max Andrzejewski, drums, synth, light

Improvisers and multi-instrumentalists Ana Kravanja and Samo Kutin have gained international renown as members of Širom and rose to national prominence with various projects and collaborations, most notably the Najoua duo. For each live performance – always a special and unique experience – Ana and Samo select a different mode of expression and instrumentation, and invariably draw on the rich assortment of self-made instruments or music paraphernalia they have collected round the globe. The concert will feature music from their latest album, to be released in late winter.

With their Spartan lineup of guitar, bass, and drums, the German-French trio Abacaxi creates entrancing musical experiences. Their violently distorted sounds rapidly turn into fantastic acoustic orgies with light interventions, orchestrated by the musicians themselves with dance-like manoeuvres on an array of floor pedals, and stage lighting controls that come to life during the performance like electrical toys. The trio puts new improjazz into a theatrical context that repeatedly leads to uninhibitedly excessive sensory heights.

Best concert of the 2019 Saalfelden Jazz Festival.

Pulcinella and Pixvae

Double concert

Pulcinella, France
Ferdinand Doumerc, saxophones, flutes, melodica; Florian Demonsant, accordion; Jean-Marc Serpin, double bass; Pierre Pollet, drums

Pixvae, Colombia
Alejandra Charry, voice & guasá; Margaux Delatour, voice & guasá; Israel Quinones, voice & percussion; Juan Carlos Arrechea, percussion; Damien Cluzel, guitar; Léo Dumont, drums; Romain Dugelay, baritone saxophone, keyboards, artistic director

One of France’s best-known quartets, Pulcinella has travelled the world (including South America and Central Asia) and performed its atypical music at more than 600 concerts. For the past 15 years, this playful Toulouse band has been mixing funk, jazz, traditional music, electro, musette, progressive rock… to create a polymorphic and borderless music.
A band based in Lyon, Pixvae’s lineup features Colombian female and male vocalists, and percussionist. With two albums under their belt, Pixvae’s music is an explosive jazz-seasoned concoction of traditional Colombian rhythms, ritual folk songs and hardcore. One of the highlights of the 2017 Druga godba Festival.

Same babe and Jani Kovačič

Miha Nemanič, voice, harmonica, tambourine, shaker; Marko Voljč, vocals, trumpet, tambourine, shaker; Marko Jelovšek, vocals, double bass, guitar; Matjaž Ugovšek - Ugo, voice, guitar; Viki Baba, voice, guitar; Jani Kovačič, voice, guitar

On this occasion, Same babe – a band inflexibly labelled as “alter-chansonniers” by some critics – is joining forces with Jani Kovačič, a legendary singer-songwriter that has been taking stock of our world for decades. After Kovačič has performed some compositions by Babe and Babe some of Jani’s biting satires, the artists will share the stage in presenting an unpredictable repertoire. Rather than their reliable hits, they’ll most probably play previously unperformed pieces; always with some surprises in store, Babe and Jani like to tickle their audiences’ curiosity with suspense.

Dejan Terzić Axiom + Samo Šalamon Trio feat. Igor Matković & Kristijan Krajnčan

Double concert

Dejan Terzić Axiom
Chris Speed (USA), saxophone, Bojan Z (France), piano; Matt Penman (USA), bass; Dejan Terzic (Germany), drums

Samo Šalamon Trio feat. Igor Matković & Kristijan Krajnčan  
Igor Matković, trumpet; Samo Šalamon, guitar; Kristijan Krajnčan, drums, cello

The first part of the evening will take us on a journey through the limitless expressive possibilities of drums. Our tour guide will be Dejan Terzić, a German-based drummer of Bosnian descent. His quartet unveils an amazingly rich expressive realm, made of assorted moods, energies, impetuses and depths of sound underscored by a hypnotic ostinato. Their music moves from cheerful to passionate, from passionate to free, from free to structured, from structured to sweet…  

The second concert will feature ten new compositions written especially for Slovenian guitarist and composer Samo Šalamon’s latest trio. Revealing an ECM-esque melodiousness and openness, the songs will be included in the Rare Ebb and Common Flow albums to be released in January 2020.

LIUN & The Science Friction Band


LIUN & The Science Friction Band
Lucia Cadotsch aka LIUN, voice, synthesizer; Wanja Slavin, synthesizer; Dan Nicholls, keyboards; Ludwig Wandinger, drums



LIUN – The Science Fiction Band meanders between dark, forceful beats and fragile melodic contours. Wanja’s complex, multilayered arrangements are contrasted with Lucia’s frank and translucent voice that cuts through the clutter. Their songs question societal norms of gender behaviour and reference strong-headed female artists and characters such as Kiddo, Foxy Brown or Princess Mononoke and Eleven.

Lucia Cadotsch has previously performed before the Ljubljana audiences with the bands Schneeweiss & Rosenrot (Kino Šiška) and Speak Low (Jazz Festival Ljubljana).
