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

What is music to you? If I could even begin to answer such a question, you'd not understand the answer, and neither would I!

What is your music dream?

What is a dream? Do you have to be asleep to believe it? Of course, the old cliche answer would be to conquer the world, and if not, if you can't do it all, do what you can; regardless, never stop learning, and never stop creating.

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

Hey, I thought we weren't supposed to talk politics here!

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

I don't remember it. There were too many.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I try not to have favorites.

What inspires you to make music?

To express thoughts that words could never describe.

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

It could not be pinned down to one message.

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

Almost like business as usual, even thought I very rarely perform live these days. Some might say I took the golden handcuffs, yet my art would have to be very different if I had to depend on it for mammon.

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

Underappreciated by economics, yet on the cutting edge of another type of opportunity.

What do you think of Drooble?

Looks promising;)

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Just about everything.

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

Yes. This is one of the few enterprise ventures where it is normal to love your competitor.

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

Originality of concept, generosity, integrity, although it may not always work.
