What is music to you? What does it give you?

My own music is the collector bin of my emotions and the music of others is the painting of their lives.

What is your music dream?

My music dream was once to start either a night club or record label. Eventually one of those dreams came true...

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Making music....because music changes people.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Not a song but rather an LP. The Sounds Like ET LP to be specific. That was my first nudge towards synthesizer and electronic music. Then there was Blade Runner music as well. I think that came even sooner and got imprinted into my brain at the age of seven already.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

To be honest....I do not really have a huge favorite. Never did...

What inspires you to make music?

Everything!!! ;)

What is the message you want to send with your music?

There is no particular message I want to send with my music in general. Every new track is a story, a journey or a message by itself. Sometimes there are sequels and sometimes sequels to sequels. ;)

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I don't (I do feel but I don't perform :P ).

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Honestly less "Musicians", more music! ;)

What do you think of Drooble?

So far it feels like the right initiative among many money grabbers websites. Drooble seems to push people into contributing to the music community. It's not flawless....yet but if it wasn't better than just good, I would not have wasted time on it. ;)

What frustrates you most as a musician?

That there is no real market for music anymore. Saturated. Probably the answer given by most musicians but it's just the simple truth. If you have a lot of cash or a lot of connections you can get noticed otherwise you need a shitload o' luck.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Citing from two questions back: "If you have a lot of cash or a lot of connections you can get noticed otherwise you need a shitload o' luck."
