Artist Statement

My film score is inspired by the works of composers like Tchaikovsky, Holst, Williams, and Zimmer. It is a collection of seven music pieces, that emotionally follow the story of the narrator. In addition to the classical orchestra sound, I have added some modern sounding elements and instruments, which turns the tracks into a hybrid musical expression, giving place to both classical and new sounds. Just like Indians were the original inhabitants and "new" Europeans came to live in their lands. Both can achieve harmony, if there is a will.
