Afterlife of incidental music: two case studies


The potentials of the musical material used in the theatrical production, in many instances, remain largely unexplored. Thusly, remediation presents itself as one of the best ways to ensure further development of this musical material. Placed in a new context (for example, a concert piece) it can reach a broader audience outside of the theatre. Starting from the musicological understanding of Jay David Bolter’s and Richard Grusin’s concept of remediation, introduced in Serbian musicology by Vesna Mikić, this paper aims to present and explain the reasons why remediation is the best possible means to extend the life of the former musical layer of a theatrical production. This will be done on two case studies – concert pieces of Ivana Stefanović and Zoran Erić – two of the most prominent figures that gave a great contribution to Serbian incidental music as well as other theatrical projects.
