What first drew you into music?
I guess music making came out of boredom. I actually started making music two years ago because I was searching a meaningful activity that can fulfill the emptyness I was experiencing at this time. I had no real passion or drive, so I thought life was dull. But during my searches, I stumbled upon some guys on youtube who were making music on a laptop and filming the whole process. It appealled to me straightaway and I started making music since then.
Your track “Space Drift” is absolutely amazing! How did you achieve such a great signature sound in such a short time? Also, what is your creative process like?
To be honest I have been working really hard on my craft for a long time without putting anything out on social media. As a perfectionist, I could not show people something I was not proud of. So, I honed my sound and I tried to develop a coherent universe throughout my songs. I also focused on proposing something refreshing and unique : I wanted to stick out of the crowd. Concerning my creative process, it’s really messy and inconsistent but when I am in the zone, I can produce for hours.
Going over your Soundcloud we can tell you love experimenting with new sounds. Can you tell us more about your studio setup and some of your favorite plugins/instruments?
My studio setup is pretty minimalistic : a laptop, headphones and a midi keyboard. I don’t care much about material stuff it’s more about the ideas and the comprehesion of music composition. I am really fond of all kind of analog synths : it’s why I use Vst’s instead of real instruments. I think my top 3 would be : Omnisphere, Analog Lab and Nexus.
Your music sounds very organic and authentic. Do you play any real-life instruments?
Not at all. I have attempted to learn piano but my skills are limited. Of course, I have got the basics of music theory but I’m not a good musician. I tried to compensate with an overall understanding of applied music composition. I also try to put the emphasis on the ambiance or the vibe. It is what drives music and in the end it is the more important.
What are your musical goals for the future?
First, I would like to grow my following on Soundcloud in order to have a small supportive fanbase who likes my work. Then, as I am a freelancer on Fiverr, I want to keep delivering high quality custom beats to my customers. Finally, I want to keep improving my sound throughout the projects I will put out.
What are your goals for the coming months? Any upcoming projects we can get excited about?
In the next months, I would like to hit the 1000 followers on soundcloud in order to be able to release my first project. I have worked a lot on it and I tried to make it a real journey for the listener. I am really looking forward to seeing how it will be received by the audience.
