The music on this album reveals a departure from the prevailing attitudes towards composing and approaches to existing opuses, as well as the creative impulse of the young musicians within the S/UMAS. The search for a diversity of instrumental combinations through the principle of the use of open scores, masterly arrangements and entry into the electroacoustic realm are the common elements of the chosen compositions. These features can be heard throughout the album: from Tudor’s electroacoustic incentive for the ensemble at a time when things are as they are, through Detoni’s (Un)Forgotten Music in a new guise, or the use of objets trouvés that Ana Horvat used to sum up the sounds in the piece she wrote for the then newly–established ensemble of young explorers, or reviving of an almost didactic deconstructions of Margareta Ferek–Petrić in a new arrangement, all the way to Deni Pjanić’s (a former member of S/UMAS) second compositional contribution to the ensemble.
