is a composer mostly using modular synthesizer, double bass, and speakers: processing input, moving air output. In recent years he has focused deeply on music for double bass solo, developing a project consisting of three parts that incorporates space, movement, light and sound during his stay in Berlin in 2011/12. Schellander regularly works with Maja Osojnik in their electroacoustic duo Rdeča Raketa. The ensemble Low Frequency Orchestra (founded by Angelica Castello, Thomas Grill, Maja Osojnik and Matija Schellander) started in 2003. They have realized several projects, including a CD with Wolfgang Mitterer and sound/text piece with author Anja Utler. Schellander also collaborates with Attila Faravelli, who released the sound object “freie aerophone” (from his series Aural Tools) inspired by Schellanders solo double bass music in 2012.
Schellander has worked with musicians and composers, including Enrico Malatesta, Ryu Hankil, Burkhard Stangl, Franz Hautzinger, Wolgang Mitterer, dieb13, Noid, Klaus Filip, Okkyung Lee, Michael Bruckner, Isabelle Duthoit, Kazuhisa Uchihashi, Hannes Lingens, Christof Kurzmann, Jin Sangtae, Bernhard Lang, Jorge Sanchez-Chiong, Tom Johnson, Martin Brandlmayr, Bernhard Breuer and many more.
