The Mystic Composer
Mystical and visionary. Known for his innovative harmonies and pursuit of a "Gesamtkunstwerk" (total artwork).
I am God. I am nothing, I am play, I am freedom, I am life. I am the boundary, I am the peak.
Alexander Scriabin was a Russian composer and pianist. His music evolves from the Late Romantic tradition into a unique and visionary style. Scriabin's compositions fuse elements of chromaticism, mysticism, and synesthesia, aiming to create a transcendent experience.
