Horozić, Asim locked

  • Ivan Čavlović


(b Tuzla, Feb 9, 1958). Bosnian-Herzegovinian composer. Horozić studied at the Secondary Music School in Tuzla. He subsequently graduated from the Department for Composition at the Academy of Music in Sarajevo in the class of Vojin Komadina with a concerto for violin and orchestra in A major. Thereafter he returned to Tuzla, where he was employed as a professor at the Faculty of Philosophy. In 2005 he taught composition at the Academy of Music in Sarajevo. He is the author of two books on music, Harmonija 2 and Harmonija 3, for secondary school students. Horozić is one of the most prolific Bosnian-Herzegovinian composers.

His music is often based on Bosnian-Herzegovinian folk sources, which he either quotes directly or treats as the basis for works with a stable tonal structure and conventional design.
