Nemanja Radivojević----

composer____

.

.

.

.

…under construction

 

.

 

Sound world

.

of Radivojević’s music

.

participates in a

quasi-baroque formal

.

.

construction, where

.

.

the carnal pleasure

.

.

.

is

.

.

.

(re)discovered,

.

.

.

the ideals of purity are

.

.

.

.

.

REJECTED.

.

.

.

.

.

Liberated from the fear of

.

.

.

materiality

and of the corporality,

this music is engaged in

.

.

playful artifice

.

in which

.

.

MASKS seem 

to be more truthful

than

.

the faces they HIDE.

Among the main aesthetic 

concepts 

Radivojevic

is concerned 

with 

are instability, 

transformation, 

abundance of 

activity, fluidity, violence

and continuous tension 

…of human condition
