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

It's a curse and a gift, hearing melodies everywhere might drive me mad, but still to have loved and fallen into madness is better than to never have loved at all.

What is your music dream?

Having my music used in films and games would be the highest form of success for me.

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

A second renaissance is needed now when the world plummets back into darkness. Superstition will tear us all apart.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

"Redemption Song" by Bob Marley.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I enjoy all types of music save for some of the more extreme forms of noise and freestyle jazz.

What inspires you to make music?

This mortal coil.

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

Be brave, and be just.

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

Giddy like soda pop, humbled like pie.

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

The music industry chews people up and spits them out, the internet must kill the radio stars.

What do you think of Drooble?

The community I've been waiting for.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Having harmonies falling into hard-to-solve atonality, and misinterpreting the time signatures of melodies that come to mind.

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

Not really a big supporter these days, but used to run indie and gothic rock clubs when I was younger.

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

Social aptness. Not that I'd know how to achieve it.

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

Azar Habib, Erkin Koray, Sophie Véronique Cauchefer Choplin to name a few.
