Unfold Yourself is a story about personal growth, about taking care of your own mental health.
It's about an overwhelming darkness - seemingly endless. Giving yourself attention, trust, and time doesn't make these moments easier, but inevitably transforms the volatility into something fresh, someone new.
Unfold Yourself is a reminder not the give up.
Gagi Petrovic is a composer, performer, producer, and teacher of music. He mainly works in performative settings, with a versatile taste and diverse expertise. He writes pieces and songs with elements that are acoustic and electronic, intense and intimate, which are something between odd and familiar. The use of technology often plays a big role in his creative process, as well as his preference to keep pushing music forward. As a composer, he mostly works in an autonomous fashion. He has received commissions from organizations such as Gaudeamus, Fringe Festival, Dansmakers Amsterdam, Rewire, Theater Rotterdam and GRIP, to write for soloist, ensembles, theatre and contemporary dance. He releases electro-acoustic albums and performs his own works with his custom-built instrument GEST and as a singer-songwriter. Frequently, he produces music for other media too, such as podcasts, documentary and video art.
Aesthetically, his work balances in the grey area of contemporary composition, digital electronics and alternative pop. Conceptually, his music often covers themes revolving around oppression, isolation, destruction and what it means to be free. He has a special interest in how music moves us both physically and mentally; how such abstract languages enable us to reflect on a sense of reality, escape it or even question it.
