Title: Konceptuálne stratégie v súčasnej hudbe
Author: Slavomír Krekovič

Abstract: Beginning with the second post-modern wave roughly since the middle of the 1970s we may identify in the extremely varied contemporary music the conceptual expressions whose essence of creation and effect is formed by procedures of the semantic combination of music action and “outer world”, until now comprehensively theoretically unelaborated. We may talk about conceptual tendencies in music when music action displays signs of music conceptualization: i.e. a realization of a creative idea in acoustic medium, preferred to traditional aesthetic and material processing. Facts of the real world become the determining component of a music action. Several music projects thus demonstrate a characteristic shift from a narrowly specified work as an artefact to the comprehension of an open work, encompassing also poetic processes participating in its origin. Beside the definition of semantic mechanisms a general typology of practically overlapping conceptual creative strategies (thematic, post-productional, processual, technological and media ones) forms part of the contribution. Conceptualism in contemporary music may be perceived as another historic attempt to establish an organic connection of music and reality: in the case of conceptual creation music ceases to be a closed entity with its own rules, and it is formed in interaction with the surrounding world.
