Staccato confessions of music students reveal the field of tension between coercion, self-discipline and the overwhelming joy of making music. Miloš Tomić transforms his obsession with music schools by drawing visualised sounds and tragicomic miniature scenes. Educational tricks, idiosyncratic teachers’ spleens, recalcitrant violin strings, failing in the face of too-high expectations with tea cups on the back of one’s hand and a piano score – as if we had been there.
