    respond to following statement:

    Due to the fact that I am very calm natured, i prefer Debussy over Mahler. Although Mahler has very unique composing and performing techniques, I found Debussy’s style very appalling. After watching one of his performances on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvnRC7tSX50, I noticed that he tunes in on each instrument and ensures that every instrument is heard and incorporated. In my opinion that was intriguing because each instrument had its on sound but blended into such harmonious perfection. Being that I am a fan of music, I love listening to it but not for just pleasure but to help my creativity ow at times as well. Melodies help bring emotion which I can use to help various ideas flow.
