"Music should not always be “pretty”
it should let you feel what words alone can not"
When composing music, I believe that there should always be a story behind it. It can be a rock song with lyrics, it can be an instrumental classical piece or a score for a film. The form in which the story is told can change, but there should always be a story behind the music.
When facing a situation in which we should compose the feelings of a person who has just lost everything - the composer should make a choice: should he write "good" music, or should his music reflect the person's feelings?
