“Your passion drives your fantasy, your soul feeds your sound and you surrender your life to your music.”

Mihael Paar

 

An avid spokesman of the written word, Mihael Paar regularly extends and combines his music occupation with writing. Being the author of dozens of texts, either in the form of a commentary, itinerary or satire, as well as the author of several scientific papers covering the field of music, he continues to explore the magic of the writing process, starting with the preceding struggle to the euphoria that accompanies the final, print-ready product – a journey that is all too known to every writer.

With ever intrigue choice of topics, his texts are entireties of rounded off compositions, the syntax multi-layered in materials and polished to the detail. Affinity towards different types of literary styles of expression has been tended since his high-school days and is still growing. Most of his works are in Croatian, with several topics covered in English, all being published in various domestic newspapers and international scientific journals. As put in one of his interviews “the essential, primordial gift to think, speak and write is so blessing and rewarding that we should all fundamentally enjoy a profound writing, strong epistle or just the beauty of a single word“.

    Deviza Znanje

    Kad sam prije nepune dvije godine po prvi puta stupio u glavnu zgradu Mozarteuma, više od onog tada, zapanjila me jedino spoznaja da je cijeli taj kompleks tek privremeno rješenje za ono što će 2006. godine postati novi, supermoderni Mozarteumov kampu  More...

    Proklamirana fašnička stranka

    Ovaj je satirički tekst osmišljen kao programski letak u kojem svoj politički program iznosi (treba li to uopće reći – zamišljena) Srakina Fašnička Stranka. Ideja je sljedeća: Slobodna Fašnička Republika raspisuje prijevremene fašničke   More...
