I'd love to hear about your project, feel free to contact me!







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

The music is my life-long love and passion for more than thirty years and counting.

What is your music dream?

I dream to be able to record, produce, mix, and perform everything I imagine. From a musical idea to a ready piece in a matter of days, that would be great.

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

Upon my endeavors in the video games -- I'll let the world be as it is ) I hope to help a few people with my music: to save them from boredom, or to amuse them. Apart from that -- the world is just too complicated a thing.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

It must be Pink Floyd's "Shine on you crazy diamond". The intro is absolutely epic, it always made me so exited.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I love Flying Colors, Genesis, Spock's Beard of the art-prog flavor. Dirty Loops and Valery Stepanov are the recently found jewels. All-time classics like Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Dio, Soundgarden...

What inspires you to make music?

It all starts with a feeling. Sometimes it's something positive and relaxing, like that time when a cup of tea on a Saturday morning led me to write a Bossa tune. Or no one answers my DMs and the posts get zero involvement -- then I fell blue and write sad and angry music.

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

There's too much hate and dirt in the world -- here's some warmth and love to soothe the pain and entertain the mind, with a good songwriting ;)

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

Most of the times I play supportive part, so I let the front person engage the audience while myself being a frame to his/here picture.

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

It's a vicious cycle in many branches of music: bad taste leads to demand in substandard music. Which the pros have to deliver in order to provide for themselves and families. They hate it and rant about it on the musicians' forums, but as long as there is demand, there will be ones who are ready to supply.

What do you think of Drooble?

I haven't made my mind yet.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

When someone talks during the performance.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

We play gigs together once in a while. Lately, it's almost purely online collaboration.

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

A good set of networking skills will take the music to a larger audience. And, sadly, it has nothing to do with the artistic value of the music per se. I don't believe that some unique and interesting piece of music will ever compete with a million-dollars-worth of distribution attempt.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

Dirty Loops, Valery Stepanov.
