Strahovnik, Petra

Petra Strahovnik was born in Celje, Slovenia in 1986. She finished composition with Uroš Rojko at the Music Academy in Ljubljana (2011) and Mater Composition with Martijn Padding and Peter Adriaansz at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague (2014) for which she was receiving a scholarship from the Ministry of Culture in Slovenia and scholarship from municipality Žalec, Slovenia.
Her works range from solo, chamber, vocal, instrumental and orchestral music. Many of them have been performed in festivals, seminars and workshops all over Europe where her mentors were many of today's leading contemporary composers such as Vinko Globokar, Mark Andre, Fabio Nieder, Beat Furrer, Georg F. Haas, Detlef Heusinger and many more.
Her composition Between East and West for 4 percussionists won the MusMa Festival award and was later performed in 5 countries across Europe. In April 2012, she won both the Jury and the Audience award at the international competition Bienale Koper 2012 with her piece Awareness.
Her piece "Panisteriah" written after the book Balerina, Balerina by Marko Sosič was performed several times and is dealing with the subject of autism. In September 2011 Petra was invited to attend the EU-ART-NETWORK in Austria, where her piece Obsession was performed.
In September 2010, Mr. S. C. Trowell (England) granted her a scholarship for Gaudeamus Music Week music seminar in Amsterdam.

In 2013 she got commission from Diamant fabrik Netherlands to write an Opera (Becoming the System) which the premier was in December 2013 and got amazing reviews.
Since her beginning Petra has been following her path of discovering new sounds and she has never been barred by traditional way of how we think about sound and music. She is also very aware of the audiences’ perception of sound in space. She is working on research in art, discovering “mechanical - electronic” sounds, using rare earth magnets and mechanical sound speakers.
