Marija Masnikosa – DUAL BY VLADIMIR TOŠIĆ
Abstract: Dual by Vladimir Tošić (1992) is one of the first postminimalist compositions by this author. Based on a strictly conceived, complex repetitive process, the composition takes a step outside the space of radical minimalism solely owing to the specific ‘tridimensional’ physiognomy of the repetitive models treated therein. These models simulate the most common textural organization of tonal music (“melody + accompaniment”), so the composition itself belongs to the domain of postmodern simulative art.
Keywords: postminimalism, integral minimalism, strict precomposerd repetitiveness, minimalist and postminimalist texture, simulakrum, late modernism, postmodernism, stimulative art.

Jelena Novak – A QUEER PROTOCOL OF HOMAGE. CHAMBRES DE TÉNÈBRES/TOMBEAU DE CLAUDE VIVIER BY MARKO NIKODIJEVIĆ
Abstract: The music of Canadian composer Claude Vivier (1948-1983) was used as a fractalized material for the creation of the composition Chambres de ténèbres/tombeau de Claude Vivier (2005) by Marko Nikodijević. Vivier’s opus and his marginal queer acting were the pillars of Nikodijević’s meticulous reading/deconstructing of Vivier’s world through his own artistic dilemmas.
Keywords: queer, hommage, deconstruction
