Zivkovic-Uneven Souls (Sta Vidis II) (SP) - Product Information

"Uneven Souls"  ( composed 1992, commissioned by  "Kulturinitiative Stubaital" Austria )  is a piece whose title reflects the character of the Slavic people from  the Balkans and their "uneven" souls. Souls that are free from any "strict rules", any "ultimatums", or any "square, even" way of behaving.  The rhythms in this piece are based mostly on uneven beats like 7/8, 9/9, 11/8, and especially 13/8 in the last section of the piece.  It shows actually  the "picture" of these Balkanian souls, their uneven, not "dogmatic" way of living. The composition consists of three parts, one fading into the other. Singing is also important part of this work, since singing at the work, or in fields, or at home, is important part of every day life in the most countries at the Balkans.  It should be sung "full blast", with a natural "rough" voice,  since this will give the right spirit to this unusually music.Nebojsa Jovan Zivkovic
