SLOVENSKA TELEVIZA are a minimal electronics duo from Valladolid and Barcelona. Wladyslaw Trejo and Lunademayo stay close to Coldwave then expands to avant-garde and experimental approaches. In a permanent exploration to achieve a proposal that is both strange and fascinating, their commitment extends beyond the musical to other artistic disciplines that allow not only to complement but to create a more complex and coherent work.
As they are not about doing things in the usual way, they going against any commercial criteria and choose an instrumental song. This one is titled the same as the band’s name, ‘SLOVENSKA TELEVIZA’, since it’s the one that best collects the spirit of our project, a study on nostalgia and that strange melancholy of unknown origin that inhabits everyone and that goes back to the advent of these sensations in very first childhood.
The video-art piece has been produced by YANNET BRIGGILER, illustrator and animation director born in Argentina, although she lives in São Paulo (Brazil), where she works.

The viewer who articulates the fragments can create/observe/read/find a plot that connects the scenes.
