RIKS EENVALDS
For me, harmony is most important how it flows
and becomes a new harmony. The melodic line is
secondary. Perhaps this is because my ear is trained
primarily to perceive harmonies. Nevertheless I dont
want to write simple music . . . it is important for
me to create sounds that I truly feel. I conclude that
I am constantly changing, searching for new paths,
but absolutely not, once having found them, massproducing them.
