The legend of King Arthur and the famous knights of the round table has been passed down for generations. Every tale about the boy and the sword captivates and leaves us questioning our own destiny…but have you heard the story of Mordred?
Musical style is expressing yourself through music. It’s something that fundamentally comes from within, and it manifests itself in the way you say a word, through the accent you have, or the notes that you choose to put on paper. Music is more than just notes on a page- that’s just what you see. Composing isn’t about telling a story, it is storytelling; getting the listener to feel what they need to feel.
