    I describe myself as a "composer of modern music".

    I am definitely modern and, as a further subcategory, more pop/ambient/new age oriented with orchestral elements.

    If you write it now, it is contemporary by definition.

    What exactly do you mean by "classic" composer? Anything that draws on styles established before 1960? That's a rather unconvincing generalization that has been floating around for some time now... what is this "classical music" I keep hearing about? I think it's a fiction that doesn't hold up to any kind of logical scrutiny. Explain to me how, say, the Rite of Spring is more "classical" from a theoretical standpoint than your typical ABA mainstream pop music. Oops, it's not. So why are we calling everything that isn't mainstream pop "classical"? Who came up with this stupid idea? We should be calling music music. We can call "popular music" "Short ABA" music and be done with it. Who cares what instruments music uses. You can play the latest auto-tuned generic pre-programmed corporate emo band song on bagpipes, and it's still going to be trash that is relevant only as long as the fashion we have been programmed to swallow is relevant.

    It's all about looks anyway. Let's face it, music is not about sound, it is about visuals. Right... and gravity sends you hurtling to the moon... are people all just completely brainwashed now?

    Grrrrrrrrrr.

    I am drunk and having a lonely night, just ignore all this.

    Forced to conform into 1 of only 2 options, I'd say Classical.

    I've never really found something that can not be produced by any of the different established configurations of musicians we use today. An exact representation of a sound I hear in my head is not really nessecary.
    If I hear a sound, then I listen to the spririt of it, the meaning of it, the role it plays in the musical story, texture and the message it sends to the listener - in short ' what is says'. I don't need the musicians to exactly reproduce that very same sound I heard in my mind. I just need the musicians to 'say the same thing' musically that I heard in my mind. There are many ways of musically saying the same thing that the sound (and/or rhythm) I heard in my head said.

    Parent: Son, you cannot become both.

    Lol von sorry for the sore nerve there, By classical I mean when you compose you use the orcestra as your main focus, using proper orchestration....by modern I mean you primary focus is into things other than orchesta such as sound design.
