Jug Marković (Serbia, b.1987) approaches music in a deliberately intuitive way. In his compositions he tends to refrain from strict and rigid premeditated concepts and systems and has no extra-musical intentions to his work. He is particularly interested in high energy music, intense sound worlds and dense textures as well as eclecticism in stylistic approach.
Marković is the winner of ISCM Young Composers Award 2019 for choral piece "Nirvana" and was performed among others by Ensemble Intercontemporain, Mivos Quartet, Latvian Radio Choir, Gulbenkian Orchestra, Divertimento Ensemble. He is currently under commission of Festival d'Aix-en-Provence. Jug was a composer in residence at Gulbenkian Foundation (PT) as well as Snape Maltings (UK) where he was mentored by Michael Finnissy. He holds MA degree in composition from University of Arts in Belgrade and is also a graduate of archaeology.
