Irena Stevanovska

Irena is a recent philosophy graduate, and a long time avant-garde jazz enjoyer. She spends most of her time listening to and discovering new music, reading books and endlessly talking about seemingly unimportant philosophical ideas. Born and raised in a post-socialist country (North Macedonia), surrounded by coal power plants and brutalist buildings, she found solace in listening to melancholic but also chaotic music. Shortly after hearing Bill Laswell’s Sacred System, she started feeding her soul with avant-garde free jazz compositions, which sometimes she excitingly gets to play at an underground radio in Skopje. So, to this day, she experiences the music deeply and writes about the sublime feelings she gets from the albums.
