Description of Style

The emotion is specified by the style: A potential or specific place  of venue, a potential or particular musician, an ensemble, an orchestra, a conductor and an issue the music can arise from. Music is never released from a human touch. Music derives from nature, the cosmos, or only from a simple idea. Tonal centers are equal partners to the detached functions. Rhythms may produce form. Sound mixtures may give the colors. Silence is an essential element of the design. Breathing is causally connected to music - wind instruments and percussion are the main focus, sound and further possibilities of instrumentation - which cause overtones - are to be preferably utilized.
