This text presents a summary of the results of my artistic research in the field of string plucked instruments of Hindustani and Arabic cultural area (namely sitar and oud) and their creative use in contemporary Western artificial music. The examples used to demonstrate these possibilities are taken from my own compositions, which, in addition to their anchoring in Western music, also reflect in various ways the musical elements and theoretical concepts of the areas of origin of the instruments mentioned. The article presents this information, essential to understanding the context, in the introductory chapters.
