l compose mainly in a classical style(l also compose and perform blues rock jazz and nonsense music).the reason l like to compose in a classical style is not because l beleive it is better than other styles, but because l beleive of all the major styles of music it is the least developed,and therefore has the most potential .   For the whole history of classical music there has been some institution in control ,first the church then the aristocracy then the upper classes  then the universities and conservatories and orchestras, as a result classical music has become like a bonsi tree,stunted and unable to grow.Other major styles of music have already peaked and now are in a period of decline , but now as we enter the digital age classical music can free its self from the deadening influence of institutions and reach its true potential. Towards this end l'm trying to revitalise classical music in two ways, firstly by emphazing melody and strong emotion,secondly by developing a new deeper and broader aesthetic free from the cliches and rigid intellectualism of the past.FOR MORE BLOGS ARTICALS AND MUSIC GO TO ONE DARYL SPRAKE COMPOSER.COM
