Debussy got the influence and edification of Impressionism of art, his music style did not regard fastidious and graceful melody or complete framework of musical composition, which the traditional music cared as his main ideas. What Debussy pursued is the instant change of sound. Debussy obscured tonality on purpose and successfully dodged the limit of tonality and sound. Through his exceptional creative ideas as well as novel and outstanding creative skills, Debussy wrote a series of works which was quite different from the traditional style. As a result, we will promote our musical interpretation for the impressionism if we can appreciate Debussy's musical paintings in his works.
