We have a variety of composers on this site who write music in many different styles, from neoclassical (music in the style of a period of history), modern classical, jazz, ragtime, techno, filmic, video-game, pop, and "other," as well as people who have no fixed style but hop around through different approaches with each piece. I am starting this conversation to invite you all to discuss why you choose to compose in the style that you do. To have this be a somewhat structured conversation, I ask that in your initial reply you use the following format:
1) Style or styles I compose in and why:
2) Example: (link)
3) Brief description of the music you just provided the link to.
The music you link to can be something you've already posted here, it doesn't need to be something new. After your initial posting, it's open discussion.
