An electro-acoustic composition based on the interviews with the three artists Mara Micciche, Branko Džinović and Vukašin Đelić, my close friends and collaborators, who have never met each other. They live in three different cities - Šabac, Belgrade, Zurich. Their stories as well as their sounds, intertwine throughout the piece modified and accompanied by the sounds of my own, all of them creating an ensemble of voices, sounds and musical fragments deriving from diverse set of musical practices by each of us.

A podcast by Belgrade based composer and sound artist Svetlana Maraš.

The TIMEZONES podcast series plunges into the world of artists and their practices, asking: What does living and working in culture and the arts involve in different countries, cities and contexts today? The artists’ thoughts on their moods, their social, political and intellectual realities and their philosophies (of life) have been worked up into experimental audio collages.

The podcasts run the gamut of formats and content, from straight journalism to experimental and documentary approaches, ethnography and fiction, sound art and improvisation. The TIMEZONES series endeavours to create new artistic forms of storytelling, listening and exchange across the boundaries of geography, time zones, genres and practices.

The TIMEZONES Podcast Series is co-initiated and co-produced by Norient and the Goethe Institute.
