What does music mean to you personally?

Music feeds my soul. I listen music every day, I feel pleasure from listening. I usually listen classical music. Music is a part of my life. Music is energy, power, impressions, philosophy. I connect music with poetry, literature, art, religion. I think composers more sensitive, isolated from people. Unsociable, strange, fragile...

Do you agree that music is all about fantasy?

I don’t quite understand this question, but I try to answer. I think there are different types of composers, some composers use fantasy, some composers use theory and don’t matter about fantasy. All depends what kind of music you want to create.
