Description of Style

Of course, the stylistic devices used by me in my music are based on the theme of the piece I am facing and they are also based on my inspiration. Depending on what I want to express and on what emotions I want to induce in the listener, I ponder the many opportunities and seek out the most matching one . And of course, this changes with each new piece, because over again mostly other means of expression are required for to meet the desired effect for the track.
