Over the last three decades Tadic has concentrated on developing an approach to improvisation which combines and juxtaposes musical material drawn from many diverse sources, including Baroque, European classical and North Indian classical music, Flamenco, Eastern European folk traditions, Blues, Jazz, and Rock.

He has composed solo and chamber music which is published by Les Editions Doberman-Yppan. Tadic has written music for numerous experimental film, dance and theatre works and most recently completed music for Croatian Oscar-nominated  feature film “Seventy Two Days” by Danilo Serbedzija and the award-winning animation feature film “Blood of the Family Tree” by Christine Panushka.

An avid instrument-builder, Tadic largely performs and records on instruments of his own making.
