Filling is my only composition to experiment with a personal approach on structure. It igradual process of moving from a thin sonic texture into a thick and full texture. A gradual process of filling the same space with more and more sound. Until, there is that point, where sound exceeds the given space. That is the point where the sound… bursts.

A symphony should be like the world. It must embrace everything.
And my oh my, his symphonies have a heck of lot of stuff packed into them.His musical style is pretty much Romantic, with little hints of the weird orchestrations and tonalities that the 20th century dudes went kind of crazy with.

It’s a deceptively different experience
Both situations involve switching to something which, on the surface, doesn’t seem too different from what you are used to, whereas in fact, both are radically different. For example, many people think of classical as basically long-winded and unstructured, especially compared to non-classical stuff. What you don’t realize until you’re well entrenched is that most classical pieces are structured around one of a few basic, but somewhat complex, underlying structures: sonata form, rondo form, etc. Identifying and understanding these forms is geek heaven. In a similar fashion, people new to Linux get a load of the tarted up window managers and see it as basically a free, slightly different looking, version of Windows. Of course, you find out quite quickly that that is just the very tiniest tip of the command-line based iceberg..''

Johann Sebastian Bach, not one of his myriad kids. He really churned them out. Bach is another one of those boys that, like Mozart and Beethoven, everybody and their mum has heard of. He’s one of the greats. If you believe what a whole host of professional and amateur experts has to say on the subject, then he’s the greatest of all time. He’s the Muhammad Ali of the classical world.
