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

I believe that in the beginning there was sound, and therefore I connect my entire being with music. Still, as a baby, I was very aware of the energy that music is producing. Finally, music is energy for me!

What is your music dream?

Composing (and producing) beats that move people!

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

Promoting communities where you can be able to express yourself and your heart without restrictions!

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

One Day in Your Life by Michae Jackson (1974)

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Jamiroquai

What inspires you to make music?

Creating and mixing a new composition makes me feel whole!

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

Enjoy life, music is energy!

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

Actually, I've never performed in front of an audience. I'm more of a speaker. But this winter (2021/2022) I plan to do street music as a challenge.

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

A good development was the democratization of the industry. Nowadays more or less everyone has a chance to reach fame. But the industry was, is, and will be just a part of the controlling establishment.

What do you think of Drooble?

With Drooble, a good idea has been made a reality. It's fantastic to have a social platform for musical people. If it was a part of the monetization system, it would be just perfect.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

As an artist in general, one rarely receives proper recognition and reward.

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

I usually support a few bands in my area. But because of my new nomadic lifestyle, it's a bit of a challenge (when there are no official restrictions).

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

One needs to have a proper budget.
