The central musical material of Times was derived from a romantic tune, sung at the XIX century soirées in Serbia.  The tune is heavily transformed and deconstructed throughout the piece, to the point of “anonymity.”  Even when absolutely obscured, the tune serves as a central structural element of Times, determining its rhythm, harmonic language and emotional content. 
Times won two competitions: The Vienna Modern Master Composition Competition in 1997, and The Highsmith Composition Competition in San Francisco in 1996.  
It was released in 1997, on Vienna Modern Master CD label.
