Davor Vincze is a composer of contemporary music, whose artistic focus lies on meta-reality and musical narrative that is implicitly stated or explicitly concealed.,Davor Vincze uses the compositional method ‘microllage’, which recycles musical material in a quasi ecological way. With microllage, Vincze is looking for latent acoustic spaces and properties present, but mostly left unexplored in the pieces he is referencing, which often includes self-referentiality. In shivering, hazy textures, Vincze explores the parallax effect, juxtaposing or subtracting multiple perspectives on a limited number of ‘borrowed’ sonic gestures. This enables him to create a meta-reality that contains multiple layers of inexplicit & ambiguous meaning. After completing his composition studies in Graz and Stuttgart, Vincze specialized in electronic and algorithmic music at the Ircam in Paris and finally completed his doctorate at Stanford University in the class of Brian Ferneyhough and Patricia Alessandrini. His compositions have been performed by renowned international musicians like Ensembles Modern, Recherche, and Intercontemporain, Klangforum Wien, Talea and Slagwerk den Haag, JACK, Mivos and Del Sol Quartet, Secession and No Borders Orchestra. Slovene and Zagreb Philharmonic etc, at festivals such as Présences, Impuls, MATA, Manifeste, Darmstadt, Zagreb Biennale and others. In 2014, he launched an international contemporary music festival - Novalis. Vincze won Alvin Lucier Prize, 2nd prize at Stuttgart Composition Competition and 2nd prize at the Pre-Art Composition competition, Impuls Festival competition, and has been awarded many stipends in support of his studies and creations of new works. In 2020/21, Vincze was the winner of "Boris Papandopulo Prize” for the best Croatian composer of contemporary music, winner of the European Contemporary Composition Orchestra competition, winner of the best audiovisual work at the International Competition Città di Udine (Italy), as well as one of five awardees of 'New Music, New Paths' competition in Hong Kong, and he got selected for the artist residency both at the Institute of Electronic Music in Graz (2021) as well as at SWR Experimentalstudio (2022).
