Milana Milosevic

Milana Milošević (Serbia) acquired her BA degree in composition and orchestra-tion in 2016, from the class of Prof. Svetlana Savić at the Faculty of Music in Belgrade. That same year, she enrolled in the doctoral programme in the same class.
Music by Milošević has been performed at the 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, and 14th KoMA festivals and the 2015, 2016, and 2017 Festum in Belgrade.
Milošević won first award at the 2014 Donne in musica International Competition in Kragujevac, second prize at the same competition in 2018, first and second prize at the 2015 and 2016 Piano Com-petitions in Smederevo. A work by Milošević, Dva haikua (Two Haikus), was selected as the official entry of the Faculty of Music in Belgrade at the Rostrum+ project in 2015. She won the Stevan Hristić Award for the aca-demic year of 2015–2016, as well as the 2018 award of the Josip Slavenski Fund.
She was a participant at the 2015, 2016, and 2017 Summer Art School at the University of Arts in Belgrade.
In the academic year of 2016–2017 she was appointed a teaching associate at the Composition Department of the Faculty of Music in Belgrade.

Toomač for electronics, piano, flute, and oboe was writ-ten in 2017. As one of the organisers of the Sinestezija (Synesthesia) concert that took place that year in the large auditorium of the Students’ Cultural Centre, I wrote this piece specifically for that event, where it was premièred alongside an abstract choreography performed by a professional dancer.
