Genre, school, style: the unavoidable question.
In our time, ‘music’ is seen in representing many different things, sometimes even applied under fierce arguments and severe prejudices. I think it is much more simpler than that: music communicates without words, transforms its environment as it is transformed by its performers, and needs no excuses to thrill and move us along its way. Music can either tell stories or simply support them in such a delicate (and sometimes imperceptible) way. It is exceptionally suited for pairing images together; it gives movements the ability to soar, and it can also simply be – strong and complete on its own. Music can do all of this because it is timeless and unique. That’s why I believe genre and style are not an end – they’re just tools with which we take music to whenever we want it to go.
