The title of the composition Vice versaindicates a method, consistently carried out, by which similar and diverse thematic materials, played by two violas, are swapped. This method was partly inspired by hoketus – a medieval composition technique. The composition was created in 2013 and dedicated to the violists Mirjana Bubić and Nemanja Marjanović.
