ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the cryptographic traits in Western avant-garde music, as well as in contemporary music in Latvia and its neighbouring countries. The contemporary cryptic trend in music differs from ancient cryptography as follows: unlike ancient cryptography, contemporary music has a double function, its code locks and unlocks the secret signs, and unlike creators of ancient crypts, contemporary composers are highly creative when inventing new code systems while avoiding, as much as possible, the traditional ones. This paper also analyses contemporary musical cryptography in relation to modernism in art in general. It points out that the cryptic tendency in music has its roots in the modernistic conception that perceives art as a veiled zone that requires an intellectual initiation in the form of knowledge in order to be entered.

Keywords: Latvian music, modernism, codes, musical cryptography.
