Marshall Styler, for whom art is perhaps what gives meaning to his life, never ceases to amaze us with his narrative music that transmits to the audience real as well as imaginary stories. These stories in a musical form are comparable to movie soundtracks, and stimulate the imagination of the listener to re-create the facts and sceneries that the music suggests. "Red River Crossing" is a precious collection of melodic instrumental pieces played with piano and electronic keyboards. All the compositions are dominated by a romantic character, with rich orchestrations and symphonic elements. In short, this is contemporary instrumental music of the best quality.
"My music is not space or soundscape music. I compose instrumental pieces that have a definite structure based around melodies. There are no words to tie it all down so there is a certain dream-like quality inherent in my sound."
"I consider myself an impressionist, in the spirit of the French impressionist painters - Degas, Monet and Matisse. They worked with color and emotion and have a powerful elegance that I strive for in my music."
