Oliver Torr & OGJ at Pohoda in the Air

Oliver Torr & OGJ at Pohoda in the Air

The Czech duo Oliver Torr & OGJ (Ondřej Merta) will showcast their analogue mastery in the airport locator at Pohoda in the Air. Their first joint project was the Noise.Kitchen store in Prague, where they realized they had a similar taste and approach to art and sound, and so they started working together. They performed their sets at the Nachtdigital festival, on New York radio The Lot, and they prepared an extensive audiovisual installation in the St. Salvator church for Signal Festival. They have recently released an improvisational EP and are already working on their debut album. Their sound philosophy and free improvisations make their live sets a roller coaster of emotions and colours that will add to the diversity of Pohoda in the Air. → read more

Blikajúci Dychový Hudobný Systém (Bass Drum Horn System) at Pohoda in the Air

Blikajúci Dychový Hudobný Systém (Bass Drum Horn System) at Pohoda in the Air

Pohoda in the Air will feature a performance with lights and the airport runway delivered by Bass Drum Horn System (BDHS). The band plays dance music on wind instruments, claims that they want to save rave and techno through their work, and further writes about themselves: “We still really like our original, entirely acoustic intention, but at the same time we try to change ourselves musically to the opposite position of processed sound. One thing that has always been clear to us: dance music goes hand in hand with a light show! If we manage it as we play, everything flashes as much as possible. From the original one bike flasher to what we have today, our light show, that we still consider the best one we've ever seen.” → read more

Neuropa at Pohoda in the Air

Neuropa at Pohoda in the Air

After seventeen years of hibernation, band Neuropa will play at Pohoda in the Air. Nine musicians, a five-member wind section, one electronics engineer, one guest. The Freemusic magazine wrote about them in 2000: “Neuropa is the Danube monarchy in a modern guise. Worth mentioning is the relaxed performance of the artists free of any tension. The answer to the Zappa question is: Yes, humour is part of music (and Neuropa is a proof of that).” Neuropa in 2020 are: Peter Kohout (baritone saxophone, bass clarinet), Pavel Poliak (tuba), Tibor Duriak (trumpet), Marcel Majoroš (trombone), Anton Majoroš (French horn), Marek Minárik (double bass, bass guitar), Dano Salontay (guitar), Peter Slameň (drums), Slavo Solovic (electronics), Michal Kaščák (vocals, keyboards) + Braňo Jobus (vocals). → read more

This time, it has been installed directly at the airport runway, through which usually the majority of our visitors pass when Pohoda takes place. The artwork thus gets another meaning. The installation will serve more purposes – it will host a debate, a concert and a performance. Greeting to Nauman is the only physical artwork, which will be installed this year at the empty Trenčín airport. → read more
