Oxford Music Online
Among composers of his generation, Srebotnjak had the most distinctively expressionist style, despite the diversity of his techniques, which ranged from 12-note composition (Invenzione variata) and serialism (Serenata, Monologi, Šest skladb, Antifona) to aleatory works and graphic scores. He often integrated folklore elements (Slovene and Macedonian) into his works and used expanded variations of the themes of other composers (Kogoj, Osterc, Tartini, Škerjanc).
