Description of Style

Since I do not believe in a linear development in art, my pieces range from tonal to experimental language. The focus is on dealing with the material and its formal solution. The type of material, whether in a tonal triad or microtonal intervals, is only important in relation to the formal idea. My music can be described as polystylistic, however this is not applicable for individual compositions.
