Over the past two years he has been working on solo projects using guitars, guitar synths, laptops, and MIDI controllers & effects. A journey of genres through soundscapes, ambient, drone, world fusion, and ambient jazz.
For their Maribor performance, the duo Liminalit Exploring will be presenting for the first time their new project, which covers the whole spectrum of the vast musical expression of the band Liminalit, played from the perspective of Liminalit Exploring. The audience, therefore, can expect a combination of various atmospheres, from soundscapes through world music to free jazz.

Liminalit Exploring is part of the Liminalit ensemble, which was created in 2009 in Sarajevo as a product of fusion between various musical genres and experimentations with sound. The duo acts under the wings of the cultural association Ambrosia, but is also open to collaborations with other artists, who believe they can fit in the creative expression of Liminalit.
They performed at festivals EXIT 2010, Solstice 2011 and Zelenkovac Jazz Festival 2012, and appeared in numerous other events in Bosnia-Herzegovina as well as abroad.
Liminalit's creative endeavors are realized through three different projects:
The first and most central was released during the recording of their debut album Boundary Conditions. It is based on a more melodic approach to mixing genres (ambient, psychedelic, fusion, dub, down-tempo, kraut rock, prog rock, chill-out, ...), and focuses on the musical expression.
The second, Liminalit Exploring, is a more radical and dissonant one (experimental, contemporary music, soundscape, ambient, noise, free jazz, industrial...), and focuses on audio-visual research by means of interactions between sound, image, light, and space.
The third, Liminalit Classic, performs original compositions for two guitars and bass, combined with genre elements of ambient, (world) jazz, world music, and classical music.
