Description of Style

Due to a lack of objectivity, I see a characterization of one's own works as bound to fail, especially as regards a type of music which appears to be articulate but can actually not be grasped precisely. What is clear is that my music is marked by the tradition of the second Viennese school, and also influenced by the French tradition (Jehan Alain, Henri Dutilleux, and Olivier Messiaen). Numerous new works which have greatly influenced my music are those by Morton Feldman, Pierre Boulez, George Crumb, and George Benjamin, just to name a few.
