On "Vuprem oči" - (2018)
This melody, from Serbo-Croatian roots, sings of that contrast between "the sky above" and "bright stars playing" and lost love and being "sick for love." "Vuprem oči vu to nebo visoko, / Tam ja vidim svetle zvezde igrajo." The melody is of two similar arches, each repeated twice for the lyrics to be sung. Interpreted as an essay for solo piano, the dissonances are heightened and made more rhapsodic, through a variety of means.
