This summer I had a concert at Ponta Lopud Festival in Croatia, and had once-in-a-lifetime audience, including Frances McDormand and her husband. After the concert we were invited to a dinner at a restaurant. I approached there Frances to thank her for coming to my concert and before I said anything, she took my hand like on the artwork, and said “thank you, it was magnificent”. This episode inspired me to write a composition “Touch”. On the top of everything, I had a boat accident, where my pointer finger was badly hurt. This song can be performed with 9 fingers 🙂
“Touch” – my new single is coming out on Oct. 14th to be published by Yellow Rose Records, and was beautifully mastered by Eldar Ibrahimovic. It will be available on all major streaming platforms.
Feeling very grateful that Double J in UK took my newest single “To You” on their amazing playlist “Piano Love Songs” on Spotify. My composition found home :)!

“Quite emotional concert by Antonija Pacek at the place Sponza”
Emotional concert by Antonija Pacek is a real sensation in the program done by Midsummer Scene Festival in Dubrovnik.
Croatian Austrian cinematic music composer Antonija Pacek performed a beautiful and emotive concert at the place Sponza in Dubrovnik as a part of Midsummer Scene Festival. This monumental palace seems to be made for compositions, inspired by the sea and summer feeling….

I immensely enjoyed the “Thank You, Mama Workshop”, where I also introduced some ideas on perception, perceptional errors and creative processes. I also played some of my self-composed compositions that would enhance some of the exercises during the workshop.
I would warmly recommend “Thank you, Mama Workshop”, created by Ana Tajder, as it is self-reflective, liberating, full of meaningful exercises and dialogues throughout our quest to explore motherhood (what we cherish from our mothers and how we could better mother ourselves). I appreciated Traude’s meditative exercise that gave us a special energy during this exploration and helped participants to bond with one another. It felt energizing and full of reflective thinking.
Leni Bohrmann, an actress and a screenplay writer from Germany has a very interesting BACKSTAGE podcasts. I am very grateful and honored that she chose to interview me for her podcast no. 99. She was fascinated by the fact that I enrolled myself (on my own) to the music school with the age of 6, that although I am a composer, I studies only psychology, and that after so many years without the piano – when I got one again, I decided that I will never let it go again… So we talked about my childhood, living my country, my studies, my music and my future projects. You can find it on the below links:

The CD is featuring two songs with Sanja Romic. Mastering was beautifully done by Davor Rocco, who also mixed “Sadness” and “Rain Drops” (piano and oboe). I am incredibly lucky with wonderful people I have been working with.
