Andrej Kljakovic is a Croatian composer and visual artist with artistic family background. Andrej has a long career as a pianist/ composer and using his compositional skills he went on to transform his sonic ideas into visual art. He feels a strong connection between music and visual art, therefore working with a painting surface is nothing more than a dialogue between the conscious and unconscious mind of familiar verses unknown. With his work, Andrej finds that it is necessary to explore the depths of the unconscious forces that exist in us which are dormant and to preserve higher spheres and dimensions of life that allows us to approach the highest of our being.

PICCOLO PARADISO

PICCOLO PARADISO
It took me some time to do Piccolo Paradiso and I had no idea what the paintings were suppose to depict. It was manipulating a chance until a picture started talking to me. I used here high relief with homemade textural paste and I applied caoutchouc glue, acrylics, spray and enamel paints. The picture was painted directly through me, without any preliminary drawing, and with great force.

FLOR DE LA MAR

FLOR DE LA MAR
I’m a passionate sea diver and as a kid I often dreamed about ship wrecks and hidden treasures. Very recently I discovered a fascinating story about a Portuguese ship that went down in the Indian Ocean called Flower Of The Sea. The ship still lies at the bottom of the sea bed and undiscovered with a large treasure trove destined for the Portuguese king. I wanted to make a model of that treasure chest just from my imagination. I used my homemade texture paste, hot pistol gun that created intricate cob web type relief, imitating green sea algae that has grown over many years. I painted it with green spray paint and applied gold paint in the middle of the circles. Then I thought of some kind of Mark Rothko rich red colour field idea so I painted it with red enamel, followed by another texture of orange spray paint. Then I used very glossy vanish to make it more illuminating and radiating.

TESLA ROCK OPERA

HORIZONT

Tesla Rock Opera is composed and devised by Andrej Kljakovic as it was his long everlasting dream. Back in 1998 Andrej worked in London as a producer for a rock opera called Song Divine. Since then he had been building a vision of a man who created a world of electricity and electromagnetism. Interesting enough, the first record that Andrej owned as a child was the music for the Hair Rock Musical and thereafter Quadrophenia and Tommy fallowed.

TESLA ROCK OPERA is a multimedia stage spectacle of the life and works of the great genius Nikola Tesla. Accompanied by a symphony orchestra, vocal/dance ensemble, film excerpts and performances of top singers, it is the story of the upheavals and successes in the life of a man who is indebted to the world for his inventions.

The idea of this project is to promote a prophetic genius and his work. We see this opportunity of re-creating the character of Nikola Tesla for the world to know.

TRANSFIGURATION

TRANSFIGURATION Cover1

Transfiguration – Multimedia Opera

 

Tesla Rock Opera creators Andrej Kljakovic and Lino G Rocha are back with their second creation: Transfiguration – Multimedia Opera.

It is a multimedia music play on the life and works of the renaissance painter Raffaelo Sanzio da Urbino, otherwise known as Raphael.

This multimedia play will also feature other giants of the high renaissance period, such as Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo Bounarotti.

The musical theatre performance will compromise of a vocal/dance ensemble, 3D animation and projections as well as body painting and the latest visual technology which altogether helps to create the illusion of painting coming to life. We want to bring back the Renaissance to the 21st century with a spectacle never before experienced by theatre audiences.

The story is based upon biographical data, controversies, speculations and other forms of interpretations of the lives of those great masters. It is also a reminder of the immortality status of those classic paintings and their authors.

Ars Longa Vita Brevis – Timelessness is the metaphysical field where the points of the past, the present and the future merge into singularity.

We envisage the Transfiguration to be ready for production by the end of 2020.
