Xani – Xani Makes

A surround sound solo violin experience exploring space, relativity and dark matter.

Newly crowned ‘Best Musician’ at the 2022 Music Victoria Awards, Xani Kolac is an acclaimed violinist, artist, and intrepid songwriter who boldly navigates the Australian music scene, genre-hopping since her breakout with indie band The Twoks over a decade ago and cementing her own unique corner of the industry along the way.

Xani’s live performances are unforgettable. With electronic effect pedals and live looping charging her highly improvised live sets, plus repertoire coloured by the ferocity of her instrumental output that is shaded by deep creativity, her earnest voice, and pure joy.

Following on from her Melbourne Recital Centre solo show debut in 2021, Xani has created a new performance for solo violin and electronics in surround sound. This show immerses both audience and performer in sounds created live, emitting from four separate speakers.

About the concert

Xani Makes began as a concept in 2022 whereby Xani created a new improvised, long-form instrumental work for solo violin, live looping and electronic effects for her loyal subscribers. These works featured dense layers of effected sound, crafted in the moment.

To expand on this concept, Xani has created a live version of performing new improvised works in surround sound, so that listeners can be fully immersed in the sounds created. Each work is inspired by a particular interest Xani has in space and relativity and the pursuit of dark matter. These particles mystify scientists, just as the creation of music from sound beguiles listeners.
