... as a composer in Slovenia, Milan Stibilj (b.1929) is something of a special case. His training has been unorthodox in some respect; he studied psychology to an advanced level before concentrating on music. Although he wrote some of his earlier works in Ljubljana ... and established himself as a composer while still living in Slovenia, Stibilj has spend long periods abroad ...
... There is no free textural working in the manner of some Polish composers, and his notation, with a few rare exceptions, is precise. There are no "half-composed" pieces ...
In almost all of Stibilj’s music, there is a concentration on process. Indeed it is no exaggeration to say that these processes, and a formal plans determined by them, have been Stibilj´s main concerns as a composer.
