The Marina and AkA Ensemble (THE MAKE) is an international electronics and electroacoustic project which blends in avant-garde and the computer to create new interpretations of timeless classics.
“The relationship between piano and electronics of Bolero Bleeds is based on live performance and improvisation. To nudge up the energy and drama, contemporary ballerina Natalia Bolzer will grace the performance with her own physical interpretation. As composers and performers, this idea appeals to us, as we always look to explore new paths and to create the “unheard” and give life to the “unseen”.
“We are taking the piece from 1928 and bringing it in today’s world, with a contemporary touch, rich, wild and inspiring”. Marina Vesic / Henri Sizaret, Wien / Porto May 2016

Profusion Sounds Machine, project by composer Marina Vesić and film producer and sound designer Mar Glaz from Paris, a collaboration that began in early 2013. The project explores electro acoustic sound, paired with innovative, experimental expressions of the visual arts. The experimental films of Mar Glaz coalesce with the music of Marina Vesić to create a new form of expression in the arts.
The result is unusual, surprising, and without precedent – an audio visual performance based on experimental music through improvised electro acoustic expression. The sudden and unexpected results are evocative. World premiere was at Culture Center Belgrade, Artget Gallery, September 2013. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jok7DpdiZ5c&t=210s
The Perfect Rose multimedia project by composer Marina Vesić, in collaboration with Danish writer and painter Bo Gorzelak Pedersen and film producer Marcelo Fontes from Brazil, premiered at Culture Center of Belgrade, POP UP, June 2014 with support of Republic of Serbia Ministry of Culture and Information.
“Collaboration with Bo emerged from the need to merge different forms of art. When I first met with his paintings and poems, poem The Perfect Rose inspired me to compose music in his works of art. Idea was that combining image, text and sound as a result to get something completely different and original. Follows the sound of the picture, the picture follows the poems, it’s such a cohesion that is in constant motion, and the expression is very contemporary. Using electronics and voice together with Bo, the sound gives a completely new dimension where it has a completely different world. This is a project that strives for new views of expression in art. Live performance gives us a completely different picture. Moving from the range from film, through pictures, poems, and a very contemporary sounds, this form of expression in the art reflects my views of the times in which we live.” Marina Vesić
“The Perfect Rose is a poetry/sound/images multimedia project done by Serbian composer Marina Vesic in collaboration with Danish writer and painter Bo Gorzelak Pedersen. The project is centered around a group of what is essentially love poems with Ms. Vesic’s music as a meditation on the words – and Mr. Pedersen’s paintings reflecting on the music. The project is a combined and international effort proving how international cooperation can enrich not just individual artists but also – and more importantly – those of us who enjoy new art.” Bo Gorzelak Pedersen
“The project invites to simulate and create a world (machine) in which images, visual and sounds acts, are live, like invisible creatures” – Marcelo Fontes
2 TOTEMS avant grade, post punk duo for piano and drums was formed in 2006 together with drummer Zlatko Petković. Together they had performed music at different venue and festivals, tv shows and exhibitions. Duo was a logical extension of their collaboration in the punk band the Scarps, in which Vesić was a member of the group between 2006 – 2008. 2 TOTEMS deals with contemporary art music with a hint of sophisticated experimental sound. Creating compositions for the duo, Vesić was inspired by the underground scene as well as the strong influence of punk.
Significant concert they had at The Kolarac Hall, in the Music Gallery on November 2012, which was declared for a concert of the year 2012 by the internet journal PLASTELIN. As unusual and original duo they were invited to present music in the most watched and most distinguished show that deals with classical music in Serbia “Sunday evening” with Mr. Dejan Djurović.
Authors: Marina Vesic – Piano and Electronics and Diogo Lopes – Clarinet and Micromontage
The project consists of a real-time performance, creating a mixture between the different processes. It includes both Contemporary Classical and Electro-acoustic music. It is focused on a piano and clarinet performance, and the fusion between micromontage, concrete sounds, and live electronics. The project explores an area of research by observing the sound matter, and the type of sound that is operating. It may be presented with the assistance of electronic technology involving instrumental performance, or even a human voice. The resulting conditioning becomes a continuous representation of time and space.
