• Abstract

    The topic's relevance lies in exploring the important aspects and interconnections between past and present in musicians' creativity. The increasing use of modern technologies and the development of new musical directions raise questions about preserving historical heritage and reflecting on its basis. This research aims to study and analyse the interaction between musical past and present through the lens of reflection in the work of contemporary musicians. The research focuses on the specific manifestations of historical reflection in various aspects of musical art, including the use of historical forms, themes, and techniques in music creation, as well as the impact of technology on this process. The methodology is based on the analysis of musical works, literature, and documentary sources regarding the use of historical elements in contemporary music. This text discusses the importance of musicians reflecting on historical contexts, their creative decisions, and interactions with technology in the music-making process. The results obtained from this study reveal the diverse approaches that musicians take when reflecting on historical contexts in contemporary music. The research has practical significance in revealing the possibilities and challenges of using historical elements in creativity, as well as in deepening our understanding of the impact of technology on this process. This research can provide a foundation for future studies in the field of musical art, aid in the development of a creative approach to incorporating historical components into contemporary music, and enhance comprehension of the relationship between musical past and present.
