1977 – Born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
PRICES AND PUBLICATIONS
Cyclus of 90 radio-phonic poetical miniatures “Requiem for the tears of Bohemians” is an sonic and poetic flow of thoughts where semantic sameness is conceptualized. At the same time it is a minimalist insight into detailed brightness of poets experience of his environment, topics that are occupying him and messages that have not been written, but more protruding from the space between the lines, messages that are remarked by incompleteness which represents anchors of the memories and opens the doors for the contemplation of listeners in order to inspire them to explore their own imagination and intuition. Poetical incompleteness is intentional and in a electro-acoustic sense, composition of sounds is aiming to present emotional stands and internal processes inside which poetry has been created.
2008 – Three Warlocks
Cycles of radio 44 poetical miniatures named “Three Warlocks” is a collection of radio-phonic miniatures where brunt of the artistic intervention is on sound concepts and electro-acoustic composition of concrete sounds. Architecture of the sound has tendency to create various acoustic situations in order to lead the listeners into the intuitive spaces of acousmatic artistic expression and by that strengthen the intuitive dimension of the poetry.
Cycles of radio-poetical essays “Around our necks remained a grip of wars” is an sonic and poetic flow of thoughts where brunt of the artistic intervention is placed on designing of the metaphor of the content. Author is artificially closed into his own world, by describing the substance, he is describing the environment. Environment that surrounds him and that he is rejecting. He is taking revenge because this environment has rejected him. Author sinks in his search for reasons of that rejection. Memories, injustices, conscience, insults… lead him to the indifference towards the environment and towards himself, his revenge does not hurt him, it does not hurt the environment. That revenge stays like a fence and a symbol of demarcation, symbol in which does not exist space for forgiveness, no pursuing, no adopting, no struggle, no integration. There is only rejection, wastage, mutual blackmail by denial of the self, as author to his environment so the environment to the author. In a complex this cycles is an attempt of metaphoric presentation of the relation between Republika Srpska and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
2013 – One for all against One
As project, “One for all against One” is one pseudo-philosophical deconstruction of profound cultural processes that are questioning the substantial diversities. Project is poetically redefining (g)lokal dimension and understanding of the culturally stereotyped „essense“ of terms like: ignorance, childism, uninlightment, honesty, rashness, injustice, stupidity, alternative, power, consequence, loneliness, measures, revenge, forlornness…
ART CRITICAL TEXTS
As format, radio-phonic critical essay is based on the deconstruction and analysis of art work aiming to present its intertextuality, aesthetic and semiotic communication. Questioning of the relation of elements of the work of art with its holistic dimension or message represents one unique and subjective path into the understanding of the mediality of artistic work, its relation towards public, discourses of the aesthetic of the contemporaneity, and its public impact.
2005 – Radio in square
Participants in this three-national pilot project were primarily students from various areas of concentration involved in local radio projects. The four corners of the square in which the project was situated were as follows: historical consideration; the media- and radio-policy dimension; intercultural exchange; partnerships and networking. In the first phase of the project in Erfurt, attention centered around a discussion of common standards of quality in journalistic work. In Limoges, on the other hand – and particularly following the visit to the memorial in Oradour-sur-Glane – the group assigned an important role to the concrete experience of war, and to ways of dealing with war guilt. In Sarajevo, there was a great deal of discussion about the history and current situation of Sarajevo, for instance through meetings with former combatants and representatives of EUFOR. In each phase of the exchange, the young people worked together in three-lingual teams to produce a three-lingual radio show. These productions were broadcast by participating radio stations.

2014 – Days of Architecture 2014
The series “Where to rest (Mayday radio Reveille)” is radio-reminder on today's abandoned and devastated workers’ holiday resorts of working people and citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The series offers one declarative insight into the locations and accommodation capacities of workers resorts on the Adriatic coast. 50 workers resorts that are presented belong to “working organizations” from Bosnia and Herzegovina. Since the author has a long-standing aversion to everything that today represents “marketing” behind which usually does not stand even the essence nor the whole, this serial gives up all artistic interventions characteristics for marketing campaigns of present days and presents to those who have no place to rest the essence of what they do have and at same time do not have as option. This radio informance aesthetically borders with radio reportage, interview and performance, interlocutors who are also collaborators and veterans of the labor movement of BiH are Dr. Ramo Atajić and Bejto Kačar. The story of the workers’ holiday resorts presented in this way is only the beginning of the research that will be undertaken in the future, of course if enthusiasm stays and if money finds the way to fall onto right hands.

The goal is an auditory representation of mountain ranges that lie around Sarajevo. The experiment “Geosonic horizons” is primarily an artistic project which because of the accuracy and authenticity uses scientific standards, measurements, data and logical calculations. It is a mathematical game with geodesic values that leads into the world of the physical processing of sound.

Three stories, told in one voice. Short sentences that are opening the way for three flows of thoughts, each thought is by deconstruction, separated from the context and represent ex-courses within an discourse. At the end, listeners can – while they are caching fragments of specific flow of thoughts – get some kind of idea on what is holistically going on. At the same time everybody will very hardly be able to say what is the content of each separate story. To hear all and not to know anything.

Papst Franziskus visit to Sarajevo was definitely „the event“ of the year 2015 in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Security measures where on the highest possible level and all together created a specific atmosphere in the town that remembers sounds of war very well. This field recording is one collage of sounds that are conceptually symbolizing social and political events of the past of this particular place. To me it was one – probably unwanted – public sound event with one conceptual message.

This adaptation is questioning sensitivity of the relation between people who stayed and people who escaped.

Gossip and its purpose is opening the dimension for defining of public relations. Gossip is an impulse that opens space for the answer in a same manner.

This kind of the society can be defined as a society founded on the vanity.

THEATER ART CONCEPTS
Today, we are unfortunately witnesses of great conflicts of different civilizations or better to say, different cultural identities. This cultural identities are very often misused trough spinned media communication strategies in order to be inspiration and/or justification for future wars. One very plausible example for such an conflict is a political agony of three major cultures in Bosnia and Herzegovina today. Political history in Bosnia and Herzegovina left in the heads of new generations great walls of hate. As a result of this situation new generations are becoming more and more hostages of „their own“ cultural past. This situation reflects on all segments of public life and at the same time it is an nucleus for development of policies that are underlining cultural differences as negative elements. National purity is becoming more and more political tendency and values of cosmopolitanism are becoming in public space defamed. Epic is conceptually using sound elements and tools of the traditions of cultural identities or actors that are involved in the (hi)story and create a harmony. With help of the historical chronology listeners can hear the story of life of Sarajevo.
