How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Time goes on, music too, however an old tunes, classical music should be preserved and available, so, we can always come back to it for an inspiration. I would love to see more music for emotions, electronic music (I try to compose as well) which is especially useful in movies. Modern contemporary music, just written for "geometry" - as some composers claims - does not appeal to me. For me music has to carry on something, bring something... maybe I am too old fashion?

Always look for something new. Be creative, not just copying others and looking for inspirations - even in the past...
