These three composers are bright, inventive and talented composers of contemporary academical music and academic avant-garde. Their musical language is very expressive, emotional, full of contrasts, different musical expressions, extended playing techniques and many other elements. Shocking musical experiments, innovative, unusual and spontaneous instrument combinations, colorful and original sound – all these elements form the main basement of their music. The composers have a tendency to use free and bright musical language, which is always switches from academic avant-garde, experimental music and free improvisations of experiemntal jazz.

This music very frequently can’t be described or wrote in traditional notation. Three composers have a masterful ability to combine together wide range of different music styles and genres – composers masterfully condense together expressionism, impressionism, post-impressionism, modernism, late romantism, eclectic and dramatic neoclassicism, various styles of modernism, experimental and electronic music, academic avant-garde and free improvisation. This wide range of different music styles, expressions and colorful playing techniques create innovative and evocative sound of the most part of these composers compositions. The music of the composers are somewhere between academic avant-garde and free improvisation – it also is usually written in graphic notation and other modern forms of notation.
