Music=Sound, rhythm, energy, and inner pulse. All sounds are used - withered leaves on the forest floor, self-constructed instruments as well as traditional - they partake on equal terms in the compositions. In this way, the traditional instruments are not essentially different from the sounds of everyday life: hammer strokes, compass saws, whistling kettels, the grocer's rattle with the bottles, etc. They are used with equal expressiveness and the same weight as traditional instruments.
