How can I learn to compose like this?

I love this wonderful track :

I would like to learn more about all the delicate high metallic sounds and, frankly, every single sound and mix technique in this track . I contacted the author but no luck. I would like to know

  1. What is the name of this style of music?
  2. Are there commercial bands that specialize in this?
  3. Is there anyone I can connect with to teach me this style in depth?
  4. Any feedback on sounds, synths, sound libraries, vsts’s, percussion sources,etc would be great! I hope the excellent producers here can help me improve my work!

Almost any modern synth can make all of these sounds (you can add a sampled piano).

My tip would be Serum, an excellent synth both for learning how to make sounds and for actually making sounds to use in music. It is very visual so it’s easy to see what’s going on.

But pretty much anything in that track (including drums) can be made with a sine wave, sawtooth wave, triangle and a square wave.

Most of the sounds are very simple to make (as in seconds or minutes) if you have an understanding of how a synth works.
