    Lucija Gregov is a cellist, improviser and sound artist whose work describes and explores new sonic landscapes. Adding to her instrumental cello practice, she ocassionally integrates analogue synthesizers and field recordings to her compositions. Her visceral approach to improvisation proposes a distinctive way of creating, co-creating, thinking and performing in and about current sonic dynamic. Following indicators of flow, experimentation, investigation of unexplored physical and spiritual spaces, Lucija's work enables emergence of practice and sound materials that are open-ended and continuously transformative.

    Through many interdisciplinary collaborations, she seeks to push the boundaries of traditional cello playing which further extend her interpretation, technique and ideas. She has been developing projects and researching in the field of classical music, electro acoustic music, noise, improvisation, experimental music, radio and sound art, as well as community art.

    Since 2023, Lucija has been playing Knurl, an electroacoustic instrument-interface exploring concepts of interactivity and polyphony in the practice of a bowed string instrument.

    In various collaborations, Lucija has further explored sound through practice of deep listening and environmental sounding to better understand social power of sound and extended recognition of its sources.

    In her work as a programmer and curator of music events, she tends to search for creative solutions that can enable expansion of the concept, form and context in which sound work is being realized. Lucija has curated sound based events for label Futura Resistenza and venues such as Roodkapje and Worm in Rotterdam, NL.
