LuminAura Music


I began playing music in 2006. I was in a couple of bands with some friends during my high school years, but because work got in the way, we never had those bands take off. I have developed my own music throughout the years. I try to create music that people may not have ever heard of, which could be a risk, since the music that I make, I feel, is purely original and NOT mainstream. But that's me. As far as my name goes...I like to combine words to create other words or names. Therefore, I took "luminescence" and "aura", which are words describing "light" and "energy" to create LuminAura. Over the years, I've tried to hone my music skills, which I feel that I have, a little, but there is still A LOT of work that I need to do to be able to perfect my craft. I hope to one day be good enough to be able to collaborate with well-known artists, but who knows if that will ever come into fruition. Only time will tell... I feel that instrumental music lets people feel whatever they choose to feel as there are no words telling them how to perceive the song. I don't have vocals in my songs for a couple of reasons: 1) I feel that I am not capable of singing to the music that I create, but that doesn't mean that I can't sing. I just choose not to. 2) I get the feeling that what I create is more suited to the female singer, and I have no idea why to be honest.







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

Music to me is telling stories. It's about expressing yourself when words can't. To me, without music, there is no life. Music is needed. Music is necessary. Music can make things better or it can make things worse. Music an make you move. Music can make you feel. Music IS life.

What is your music dream?

My dream, musically, is to be able to use music to touch people in some form or fashion. I want people to be able to listen to my music and think, reflect, just feel.

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

What is this...a Miss America pageant? If I could change the world, I'd probably start with taking out all of the bad people. Bad people make the world a shitty world to live in as they do the most damage.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

For this one, I'd say "1979" from the Smashing Pumpkins. Even though I was born in 1987, that song is actually my favorite SP song. Then again, there's also "In Too Deep" by Genesis. That is my all-time favorite song from my all-time favorite band/artist.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Genesis/Phil Collins Smashing Pumpkins Radiohead/Thom Yorke Interpol Nirvana Pink Floyd ATB Sigur Ros/Jonsi

What inspires you to make music?

Music has always been a hobby of mine. I was in a couple of bands with some friends in my high school years, but work got in the way so nothing really came of either band. Over the years, I've kind of developed my own sound. I really want to turn my hobby into something of a full time gig.

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

The only "message" that I'd want to send is for people to be able to interpret my music in their own way. That is probably the main reason why I don't write lyrics or sing...because I want people to create their own words and feel how they want when listening to what I create.

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

Never have performed in front of people so I can't answer this question.

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

I know that there are musicians out there who only create music to get money, not just because they love what they do. I think they should just do it to entertain people.

What do you think of Drooble?

This is my first time on this site so I can't make any assumptions as of yet.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

This is an easy one... People not giving me a chance. People probably don't want to listen to instrumental music as it really isn't that mainstream. I don't create music that is constantly being played on the radio. I'm an original and I don't play things that sound like others. No one really cares about someone who is original, but only care about music that sounds like what they've already heard.

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

There is no local scene that matches what I do, but I do support artists like myself, or musicians in general.

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

Probably the ability to sing, which I don't have. I mean, I can mimic other singers/bands, but to sing to my music, I feel, is impossible, so I don't have that quality. Nowadays, people don't just want to hear the "music" aspect of a song. They want to hear, and listen to, the words.
