Croatia Zagreb Media Lab I’MM 's Hacklab - Student Centre
In 2017 the orchestra gradually stopped with its activities.
The nine active members of the TO (Simon Bergoč, Tina Dolinšek, Luka Frelih, Ida Hiršenfelder, Dare Pejić, Tilen Sepič, Saša Spačal, Robertina Šebjanič, Dušan Zidar) with diverse education and/or art backgrounds are engaged in the process of creating sounds by the learning-by-doing approach and use Ljudmila - Ljubljana Digital Media Lab as their base. Their performances are described as an ongoing workshop where the audience members are not merely observers but also active participants and can even make their own instruments at the TO workshops.
The first workshops for DIY theremin and theremidi physical interfaces were mainly concerned with producing the sounds, although with the help of Pure Data - a visual programming language for creating computer music and multimedia works - it allowed them to explore the making of visual images. These were also used at their début performance at City Art Gallery in Ljubljana, which was transmitted live on Radio Študent.
The performances at festivals are usually combined with open workshops for making DIY instruments and gadgets: a pocket-sized theremin, TouchTone sound synthesizers or MicroNoise, as well as other small and portable electronics noise gadgets. For the past two years Theremidi Orchestra are also mentors of technological workshops at Sajeta Creative Camp, together with Cirkulacija 2.
The noisy audiovisual public presentations entitled Public Rehearsal, First Performance, Second Attempt, Antennas for All!, Draht Orchestra and Score No.1 – Organism Chaos have taken place at various venues, combining art, social, media lab spaces: ŠKUC Gallery, KIBLIX Festival in Maribor, the M3C Festival at the MIKK Youth Information Cultural Club in Murska Sobota, the LiWoLi Festival 2012 in Linz (Austria), COFestival/PLESkavica Festival at Dance Theatre Ljubljana, Zagreb's I'MM Media Lab, at the 6th edition of Slobodni Festival in Mursko Središče (Croatia, 2012), Sub Club in Graz (Austria, 2013), Poolloop Festival in Zürich (Switzerland, 2013), at Cultural Centre of European Space Technologies (KSEVT) in 2012 and 2014, at Piksel Festival in Bergen (Norway, 2013), at TRESK Festival 2014 together with Irena Tomažin at Kino Šiška, Sound, Poet & Visual Performance at Škuc Gallery in 2014.
