Musically open person, creative and curious...






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

Probably the most accurate definition for music to me...is Freedom. Music is an endless universe of creativity...where actually you can do whatever you want, even if it's humanly physically impossible (like electronic music extremely fast beats) no limits...you can create anything you want...no laws, no rules...just freedom.

What is your music dream?

Just be listened by the most people possible.

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

Breaking up with mental models...

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

very hard to define...but i should say that "queen" influences were strong during those days

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Jaco Pastorius, Victor Wooten, Marcus Miller, Queen, Michael Jackson, Beatles, Pink Floyd, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, NIN, Gustavo Santaolalla, Eruca Sativa, Carajo, Fluido, Jimi Hendrix, SRV, James Brown, Jamiroquai, Sly and the family stone, Stevie Wonder, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, RHCP, Sublime, RATM, QOTSA, Slipknot, Korn, Soda Stereo, Gustavo Cerati, Divididos, Luis Alberto Spinetta...etc

What inspires you to make music?

Everything, it is a communication tool...you can set your feelings free.

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

Be "open to music" explore and do not deny any new genre for you.

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

Being exposed is something that may tension you, but nowadays i enjoy it, first minutes are always critical, but then you start feeling loose and that's the better moment to take the risk and perform all you know and even more, without fear about making mistakes (even if you make them)...

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

I see a lot of potencial, skills, and of course i believe that the underground scene has so many gifted people maybe more than the "established professionals" but anyway it is not all about technique and execution...you also need to share art, and that art has to be interesting for the people you reach...this plattforms let you know them and escape a little bit from the "business music"

What do you think of Drooble?

Great tool to share,listen, i really like it...i hope more people join and enjoy it too.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

My music theory knowledge, which is very poor...sometimes is hard to communicate with other musicians...have to improve that.

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

I like "Jams night" i do not know the english word for that...but it is a free space (mostly in some pubs/ bars) where you can jam with other musicians for free.

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

Digital media, good promotion, visual attraction,etc... nowadays it is all based on marketing strategies

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

I guess everyone fill this blank with a "Me" haha
