WoO is an experimental guitarist and sound artist from Serbia's capitol, Belgrade.
Using electric guitar as a receiver of different frequencies, that various devices transmit into the air, Wo0 creates a spectrum of sounds not usually related to the sound of electric guitar. With his roots in rock, noise and generaly free music, he incorporates those styles into a fresh new approach.
Trying to amplify the air may not seem like a good idea and not very easy to do, but he uses his imagination and some serious devices such as : mobile phones, remote control, radio, computer equipment, media players etc., to create very sublte, harmonic, oscillating and deep compositions of structural flow. Not using laptop computer or any other digital sound source while creating, Wo0 is aimed to make 100% organic music. Those frequencies are than processed with effect pedals and looped, supplemented with pure human reaction to all the signals coming from the speakers.
Adding ambiental soundscapes, combining contemporary electronic music with his rock roots, Wo0 creates sky noise music, many people described as shoegaze, modern electronic, minimal rock, punk ambient and many other genres.
Recently, he played several shows with synthesizer and guitar, creating spaced out drone symphonies, rich with layers of melodies that intertwine with each other, until reaching the full spectrum of blissful noise.
So far he played with Stephan Schneider ( Mapstation, To Rococo Rot ), Martin Brandlmayr ( Radian, Trapist, Autistic Daughters ), Mole Harness, Simon Spurrier ( Sickoakes ), Breda Krumpak, Borut Dolenec, Peter Sukler, Jamal Al Kiswani, Ivan Ckonjevic ( one of his most frequent collaborators ) and many other musicians. With visual artist Incredible Bob, Wo0 played many shows in Belgrade ( Dis-patch festival, Soundscapes festival, B-link festival at O3one gallery, Museum Of Contemporary Art, Museum Of Applied Art, Cultural Center REX and many others ), Zagreb ( Mars Festival ), Ljubljana ( RE-LAX with Fennesz, Trnfest, Kinodvor cinema, Metelkova with Belgrade Noise Society ), Berlin ( Salon Bruit ), Den Haag ( Today’s Art Festival ), Amsterdam, Norberg ( Norberg Festival ), Copenhagen, Malmoe… In 2009. he attended Dutch Improv Academy where he played with Han Bennink, Peter Van Bergen, Cor Fuhler, Wilbert De Joode, Tristan Honsinger, Wolter Wierbos and musicians from all over the World in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Groningen.
