Exactly after 17 years, I returned to sound material that I had recorded in 1992 (DAT – recording) during the visit of John Cage in Bratislava (several weeks before his demise – celebration of his 80th birthday). Duration of the whole voice recording was over 1 hour. I have created “BONSAI” – a short form sonicART with limited duration. This Bonsai was composed from text fragments of John Cage´s lecture in Bratislava, held at the Sovak Philharmonic on June 19, 1992. The experience of this “symphony of spoken word” was very strong for me and therefore I have endeavoured to create a kind of sonic sculpture in this symbolic form. It is an attempt at unique abbreviation, art of concentration of a story, walk round the gardens of sonic images. This fascinating experience has become an acoustic imprint of a moment with the outstanding composer back in 1992. (Juraj ĎURIŠ )

The video composition “Portrait” was created by combining video technology, electroacoustic music, and computer graphics. All components were created simultaneously in Miloš Boďa’s studio and in the Experimental Studio Bratislava.
The dilemma of the inability to perceive the external world objectively is the work’s main idea. In-between reality and a video camera, a “corrective board” is inserted that invalidates realistic vision. The “corrective board” is a layer created as an optical artistic object modified by means of a computer. It adheres to its own rules of optical deformations and delusions that finally attain forms of unidentifiable abstraction. Nevertheless, human presence is always felt in the background. Visual and acoustic components were carefully selected to jointly form a single compact whole.
The video was awarded the Main Prize in B category (video utilizing electroacoustic music) in the international MUSICA NOVA contest in 1994 in Prague.
