Description of Style

In my music I almost always focus on the "melodic" idea which is the basis for the composition of a musical work, no matter if it is a song or extensive instrumental work, and regardless of if it's about serious or entertainment music.
My musical interests are therefore not only limited to preferences of some popular genre, but also, to formulate an umbrella term, include jazz, classical music, avant-garde, folk, which styles I will partly include and change within a composition. There was never a concern to specialize myself on one specific style, as I have no musical education. At best (ideally), the ideas will reveal themselves and display a coherent sequence of work phases (countermelody etc.), including arrangement particles, which represent a finished composition.
