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

I've always enjoyed music, but mainly as a listener. I have found that it works as a kind a meditation. It makes me relax. Now, when I'm producing, It can be even more rewarding and relaxing.

What is your music dream?

Producing/composing the "perfect" track, a track that I really enjoy listening to and can't find a single flaw in. Impossible you say? - Maybe, but why not try while you are learning?

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

Eliminate starvation. Provide all with fresh water and food, our most basic need.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

There are so many, but one is Strange Love by Depeche Mode.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Front Line Assembly, New Order and Tori Amos are probably the ones I've listened the most to. So they might count as my favorites

What inspires you to make music?

Other musicians and bands, art, movies, photography, everything creative.

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

No message, just try to enjoy it and hopefully it will trigger some emotions.

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

I don't perform ?

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

I'm not really a musician so I'm not sure.

What do you think of Drooble?

I like it! I can find a lot of new and interesting and inspiring music here. I also enjoy the discussions on music production and song writing.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Not being able to produce/compose what I know is in my head and wants to come out!

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

I try to buy music (as economically close to the artist as possible) instead of just streaming it.

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

Social skills, a strong will and possibly good looks (being honest here).

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

Haujobb (I'm the only one on drooble that has listed this great band as an inspiration)
