Description of Style

The feature is at the same time also the strength of his compositions. Flexibility in styles, ranging from traditional to pop and rock to quarter-tone music. His compositions impress with their bold color, richness of sound and intense expressivity, since they are for the most part, even the serious works written in a contemporary style, very emotional pieces of music that speak directly to the listener.
