Margareta's music is colorful, humorous, deep and strives to create absurd sound-images. She achieves this characterization through ironic treatment of traditional musical aesthetics, audial fragmentation of other art forms, implanting vivid rhythmical impulses, transforming theatrical gestures into timbre and exploring the intensity of extended instrumental techniques. The inspiration for her scores comes from literature, art, movies, science, politics, philosophy, remarkable individuals or bizarre life situations.
Margareta enjoys visiting exhibition openings, diverse theater productions and wine tastings, dancing to Balkan music, exploring the world on road trips, laughing to good satire and eating sushi. She is married to a chef and her sister Katarina Ferek-Petrić is a painter.
Ferek-Petric is a multiple prize-winning composer whose music is being commissioned and performed by numerous renowned musicians and festivals. For all significant facts concerning composers life please visit the homepage!
