Stylistic orientation: The basic approach in his artistic endeavour is the reductionistic principle of composing. All his pieces are based on particularly small number or various elements, sometimes even a single one (timbre, rhythm, harmony…).
Therefore almost every composition of Vladimir Tošić may be said to have certain significant and noticeable common characteristics: processual organization, symmetrical arc form, repetition and insisting on timbre.
