Summary/Abstract: The author presents contemporary music in terms of individualism and community, which are crucial for shaping contemporary societies. Controlled aleatorism – compositional technique created by Witold Lutosławski – gives the significance of a soloists to musicians playing in an orchestra. Feeling of community among listeners might be achieved by stimulating their activity and interaction with music (they can choose the way of presenting a piece), changing the place of a concert (a museum or a street instead of a concert hall), or using music as a part of an art installation. Contemporary music in education might be a bridge to explore more traditional music styles. It can also broaden access to culture, because abilities to understand it are similar among highly educated and poorly educated music lovers.
