★ A collection of unreleased themes and scores from 18 short animated films from the world famous Zagreb School Of Animated Film . Includes Oscar winning short cartoon Ersatz / Surogat by Dusan Vukotic (1961) and many other jazz, electronica and experimental scores by composer Tomislav Simovic .
★ Coined by the famed film theorist Georges Sadoul at the 1959 Cannes Festival , The Zagreb School of Animated Film(s) or The Zagreb School of Animation, was defined as an artistic and philosophical world-view that set its mark on the history of animation in the 60s and 70s. The key feature of the Zagreb School (not educational facility in any kind), was commitment to stylization in contrast with the Disney-style canon of realistic animation.
★ Among many composers that worked in Zagreb Film productions, the name of Tomislav Simović (1931 – 2014) stands out. In his oeuvre of 300+ film scores (not counting compositions and arrangements for pop singers and jazz orchestras), many were made exclusively for Zagreb film documentaries, fiction shorts, features and animation. Simovic was particularly adept at writing music for cartoons. He skilfully synchronized movement and sound and mixed different musical genres, although, like his peers at the time, he leaned towards jazz.
★ Composed, arranged and conducted by Tomislav Simović . Performed by studio orchestra at Dubrava film (1961-1962) and Jadran film, Zagreb (1962-1982).
