»Polyphony« is a wild and dramatic piece of crossover between classical music and rock, and I'm releasing it for the first time today on my new online music store in the best possible 320 kbps MP3 quality.
This music defies genre with inspiration coming from both baroque and modern classical music, as well as symphonic and prog rock and metal. But if I have to put it in one box it could possibly be classified as "progressive rock" (But I'd prefer not to). Polyphony was great fun to compose, great fun to play, you simply must own it!
