NEITHER PAPER NOR SCREEN – THE SECONDHANDERS NOW!
April, 20th 2012 Belgrade, Eleventh International Conference of the Department of Musicology of the Faculty of Music - Music and Paper; Music and Screen
The band Secondhanders and their leader, a double bassist, multi-instrumentalist and professor at the Faculty of Music in Belgrade, Nebojša Ignjatović, cherish the aesthetics of striking quotation marks, the aesthetics of the eye-catching and shameless unoriginality, of consuming what has already been consumed, of plagiarism, semi-professionalism and self-disparagement. They have been avoiding the great, established and self-pleasing art, and dealing with its by-products – as the band’s name itself says, with “the second-hand stuff”. Ironically enough, they replicate the gestures of this great art and have their own manifestos and concerts, while also replicating the very works of art the quotes and paraphrases of which they insert in a collage-like manner into their own sound frolics and the tissue of which they treat in their improvisations. The Secondhanders are urban musical omnivores and disappointed intellectuals who see atrophied conventions and shallow conceptions in today’s art while perceiving the works of art from past through their present-day consumer proliferation. ...read more.

Concert that marked the season was held on on 28th of October 2009 by Secondhanders. It was extraordinary by many criteria. Named „Play for Music“, it was held under the artistic management of the composer, doublebass player, pianist, flute player and singer Nebojša Ignjatović. The criteria mentioned refer to a high level of performance, authorial interventions and the overall concept of the concert. Nebojša Ignjatović, professor of doublebass at the Faculty of Music Art, an academy of classical music, have also with dedicatedly followed and participated popular music genres simoultaneously with his academic career. He merged classical and pop music on very slippery and risky platform of postmodern synthesis. From sufficient distance he overviewed all that these mutualy remote music worlds have in common and took the best out of both. Similiarities and analogies emerging from this approach are sometimes stunning. After the concert, many people from the audience asked about eventual reprise, which would be totaly unusual concert practice. It is real pitty that our music institutions have no understanding and mechanisms for adoption of such enterprises that would pay back multiple, even financially.

Jim Jarmusch's Golden Rules | MovieMaker Magazine
by Jim Jarmusch | Published January 22, 2004 ... Rule #5: Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination ... Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul ...
Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: "It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to".

Second Handers — Ayn Rand Lexicon
They're second-handers . . . . They have no concern for facts, ideas, work. They 're concerned only with people. They don't ask: “Is this true? ...
Look at them. The man who cheats and lies, but preserves a respectable front. He knows himself to be dishonest, but others think he’s honest and he derives his self-respect from that, second-hand. The man who takes credit for an achievement which is not his own. He knows himself to be mediocre, but he’s great in the eyes of others. The frustrated wretch who professes love for the inferior and clings to those less endowed, in order to establish his own superiority by comparison . . . . They’re second-handers . . . .
