Abstract

Music is held to be the most significant medium of the globalising world. With its apparent non-conceptual nature and cultural indeterminacy, it represents a model of a non-divisive language. The new musical hermeneutics, however, seeks a broader contextual determinacy in the interpretation of music. The music of Lojze Lebiœ could be a paradigm of music that grows from such contextual determination. His compositions arise from the “language tradition” of his culture and are determined by basic tonal archetypes, strict structural construction, and the author’s autonomous decision to at a certain point deny the chosen models and to transgress his own rules.
