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

This depends a lot of the genre, and moment in time. An escape. A guaranteed detour from the mundane. A coping mechanism. A stimulant. And sometimes, in terms of making it, just a way to keep myself occupied and entertained.

What is your music dream?

To make enough supplemental income to pay for my hardware and software...

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

More chicken tenders in my freezer.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Modest Mouse - I came as a rat

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

All of the ones that make the songs I'm listening to this week.

What inspires you to make music?

The urge to fabricate specific feelings that can be invoked through art. Not too worried about which ones they are. Numbness, anxiety, aggression, hype, grandeur, stimulation, sadness, contentedness. Regardless of if it I even hit my target, the idea of being able to manipulate what's going on in our heads is pretty intriguing to me.

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

Don't run with scissors.

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

Grateful that my room mate took enough interest to come check out what I'm doing in my room.

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

I'm suddenly too paralyzed by existential dread to answer this.

What do you think of Drooble?

Is this a trap? It's... great... the best... ever... Put me on more stations please, kthxbai

What frustrates you most as a musician?

I suck at pirating software.

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

No. Next question -clap clap-

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

Limbs... MAYBE ears.
