Moulatlet, whose music is influenced by the 20th century's atonal and serialist tendencies, states:
'I believe all humans are capable of being creative in many art forms. I feel very privileged to have been trained as a composer and, as a result, I can create and contribute to the considerably large pool of new music. As substantial and satisfying as that creative act may be, it is imperative and possibly more important that we, as composers and educators, do our utmost to encourage all people to innovate and explore their artistic potential. It is only by nurturing the artistic capacity within society in general that we can feel truly appreciated and rewarded as artists.'
