Aiming for the best

"Composing is for me about searching for melodies and atmospheres that makes me excited. Every time I try to create something that I really like. If I don´t like a musical idea I let it be and continue exploring another ideas. I believe that when the music touches the composer it has the best chance to touch an audience and musicians." - Ilari Hylkilä -
