The beginnings of the first choir of this sort in Slovenia – Complaints Choir of Ljubljana, go back to Finland in 2005. While taking a walk one gloomy winter day, Tellervo and Oliver Kochta Kalleinen started pondering upon the phenomena of complaining in relation to how much energy this demands of a person and whether this activity might perhaps be transformed into something rather more positive. ‘Chorus of complaints’ is an expression in Finnish language that denotes situations in which several people are complaining at the same time, so the two authors decided to apply the term literally. Thus conceived project spread throughout the world immediately after the first Complaints Choir took place in Birmingham.
