Fléda will introduce the first of a series of club nights under the title Kurzor: \

Techno events in Fléda club have a rich  tradition, which is now to be even extended a new club night entitled Kurzor:\. It will provide space for current creators of the alternatively tuned parts of the scene. The aim of the event is to interconnect local artists with artists from abroad. The main guest of the premiere evening will be the German producer Alex.Do. Furthermore, followed by F i l t r., Herna and almost complete KOSMOSPIEL.

A new addition to Fléda's programme offer is a club night entitled Kurzor:\. It will have two to four episodes a year and will offer club  visitors the current harder sound of the worldwide and Czech techno scene. The primary motivation of the event is to introduce in Brno those performers, who are still moving within the underground genre, but especially towards the West, they are already enjoying increasing popularity. Kurzor:\ definitely has something to build on. In the dramaturgy of Fléda, techno has a long-standing position. Let us remember the legendary club nights Elektra, live performances of the ECHOES series, or other genre events that Brno cultural space has hosted over the last fifteen years.  

The opening part of Kurzor:\ will be opened by top German techno producer Alex.Do from the internationally renowned label Dystopian. This music record label was founded in 2012 by renowned producer Mike Bierbach, known as RØDHÅD. He was a great inspiration in the early days of Alexi.Do's career. Dystopian and his befriended producers such as VRIL or Recondite quickly made their home in the legendary Berghain techno club. The event is announced to take place on 18 October at 21:00 hours in the Fléda club.      

From the domestic techno scene, the first Kurzor:\ will feature Prague's modular producer Citty with his current live act, Andrei from the F i l t r . stable, Plast a hnát representing the already travelling techno club Herna, and an almost complete line-up of the originally Brno-based formation KOSMOSPIEL. The club night Kurzor:\ is unique in its focus and gives rise to a platform that will host various formations that reflect the current production of their genre on the domestic scene in an unusual spatial and audiovisual adaptation of the Fléda club ambiance.

On Friday 14 February, the Sono Centre in Brno hosted a genre-diversified festival, which was also a celebration of three decades of activity of three publishing branches, which we associate with the original simple name Indies Records. Over the years, Indies Records has divided itself into three separate labels with three distinct edition catalogues – Indies MG, Indies Scope and Indies Happy Trails, which are operated by the personalities of Miloš Gruber, Milan Páleš and Jaromír Kratochvíl.  more

A fateful comedy, the third part of a musical trilogy or a fantasy musical. These attributes define Paradise, a new authorial piece from the workshop of Zdenek Merta and Stanislav Moša. Their ninth joint work in the field of music theatre was premiered yesterday on the big stage of the Brno City Theatre. The result is embarrassing.  more

Director, librettist and stage designer David Radok and composer, but also chief conductor of the opera ensemble Marko Ivanović created the authorial work for the opera ensemble of the National Theatre Brno. The opera The Monument, which was premiered yesterday, tells the story of sculptor Otakar Švec (1892–1955), whose design in 1955 was a portent of Stalin's monument at Letná. The title roles in the Janáček Theatre were performed by: Stanislav Sem (Sculptor), Markéta Cukrová (Wife), Roman Hoza (Colleague) and Ondřej Koplík (Minister of Culture). The solo parts were complemented by the Opera Choir, the Czech Academic Choir and the Brno Children's Choir. The Janáček Opera Orchestra was directed by the author of the music Marko Ivanović.  more

On the next day after the powerful experience I had gotten from the performance of Requiem by the Armenian composer Tigran Mansurian, I had the opportunity to meet its creator. The fragile, gentle and sincere music thus foreshadowed me of its author, with whom I spent a few precious moments in the director's lounge of the Besední dům in Brno in a very friendly conversation.  more

If a band releases a new album after ten years and calls it Dej si čas [Take Your Time], it sounds like a pleasant self-irony. But what is ten years against delays of other bands, whose fans had to wait for new albums for eighteen (AG Flek) or even thirty years (Progres 2). For Mošny, it was said that the new album started to emerge a few years ago, but the group wanted to include some brand new songs, which they needed to rehearse and finish.  more
