If he was asked to define his musical ideal, in a few words, here comes his answer: “a Mozart’s Sonata form or a Bach’s Fugue, coloured with the harmonic language of a John Williams!”
Vincent A. Jockin’s music shapes up around a tonal harmonic system, enriched with modes of diverse origins, and a formal thematic construction with development. The initial aim is to expose all the elements in opposition in order to create, consequently, a real equilibrium. The principe of the Sonata Form is used, besides the harmonic tensions, to create rhytmic tensions as well.
However, revolutioning music is not his goal; he simply want to modestly contribute at renewing and actualising the Sonata Form; form which he considers, the same way he considers Fuga Form, as convincing, rich, far from being overtaken, and still having much to say...
His way of advancing is not paying attention to contemporary orientations and mondern aesthetic trends; but being honest and determinated. Compose, compose, compose! Compose now and always. And someday, why not, I hope to get finally to write a work as great Pablo Picasso described: “There is, in art, neither past, nor future. The art which is not in the present will never be.”
