“Ďuriš's musical production is strictly limited to the electroacoustic medium, of which features he confidently knows thanks to many years of practice as sound engineer in the Experimental studio of Slovak Radio, where he participated in a number of compositions and where also composed his own pieces. The base of his compositions is the transformation of sound objects (musical and non-musical sources) into complicated contrapuntal structures of musical time. His initial interest in electroacoustic music was later extended by the reflection of experimental production and creation of multimedia projects in collaboration with painter Miloš Boďa – an interactive installation Hammerschlag '91, a multimedia installation (laser and music) Hundred Times Victory at Symposium Laser Art Work, and Symbiosis Art and Technology. Ďuriš is also the main organizer of the annual presentation of experimental music – the Festival of Electroacoustic Music – held in Bratislava."
