Description of Style

My style is my ambition. My concern is to combine the genres from different times and cultures into one unified language. I know this will probably take a whole lifetime. Apart from that, my understanding of harmony is quite tonal and my thinking very linear. For my work this means that I try to bring voices together, just like getting people or characters acquainted. This often isn't that easy, since each participant has a right to exist independently. This reunification process can sometimes be quite time consuming - sometimes I even lose my motivation! However I haven't found my peace and quiet yet. I therefore can't help doing what I do!
