'Kreda' are an Anglo-Slovene musical trio, a collaboration between Mina Spiler, vocalist (part of avant-garde group Laibach), producer YILA, contemporary composer Matevž Kolenc and visual artist Atej Tutta. Devoted to experimental left-field pop, atmospherics and virtually spatialised sound-scapes through the use of ambisonics and binaural techniques the group attempt to sonically mirror natural landscapes and everyday social dramas; trying to push what a song can represent and convey. Their first single ‘Emotional tides’ is a journey through Venetian canals, an intimate daydream, a timeless story that represents greatness in normality and the acceptance of the historical burden as a metaphor for emotion in personal relationships. Working directly from Atej’s visuals, the group used his video to compose a sonic journey using song form adding binaural and ambisonic techniques to carry the listener.

Kolenc - Musical artist, best known for his work with the groups Melodrom and Laibach. He Scores numerous theatre pieces, performances and films. In recent years, he has focused on the manipulation of the listener’s perception of music, the connections between emotional responses and the perception of the spatial image. Using musical and realistic sounds to achieve that, his compositions often cross the line between sound design and music.
