The BioTroja program and Prague City Gallery present the last concert in the Sonic Garden season series, this time inside the castle stables and including video projection. The dramaturgy of the evening is focused on different kinds of the ambient music, using the acoustically specific space of the room with a long echo. Besides the art of ambient, the evening is dedicated to and features two important personalities: Miroslav Posejpal (1952) one of the founders of Czech ambient and improvised music, and the work of the composer, experimental filmmaker and photographer Phill Niblock (1933), who celebrated his 90th birthday at the beginning of October. Together with the saxophonist and clarinetist Jiří Durman and the percussionist Miroslav Kodym, Posejpal released in England in 1985 the album Hidden Voices, considered as important until today, and in 2012 the label Polí5 released a two-disc compilation In the Circles of Time with a selection of recordings from 1977 to 2012. Niblock is one of the prominent personalities of the so-called drone music, in which long duration tones are layered in microtonal tuning, creating immersive soundscapes and soundclouds.
