Describe your sound in 3 words
Deep, Soul, Story
Tell us a few things about Down down. What is the main idea behind it?
I like to create something new – I like the Ocean – I like Barry White´s Voice.
So I tried to create as “one man show“ with the help of all digital tools and things i could afford – this song
The track has a very cinematic vibe. If it was in the end titles of a film, which film would that be?
Imagine a kind of „Amageddon“ at the ocean (not on an astroid)
More in french than american style (with very interesting faces -not models)
A film where the ocean, the planet, the nature strikes back and humankind try to stay alive..
But at the end..all high tech..is useless..all efforts, everything ultimately leads to the knowledge that we find the true harmony, the true knowledge at the bottom of the ocean, at the bottom of our soul..our heart.
Which is your most personal and honest lyric?
You will find some very personal lyrics in another of my songs… called „Freeway“
but I’m pretty sure my most personal and honest lyric lies in a future song
What is the first synth you turn on (analog or digital) when you start a new project?
I always start with a picture, a movie in my head, the the sounds follow
I´m pretty sure, I’m not a typical musician – i build songs upside down – maybe I’m more a director than a musican – I love to create both – the film & the music
What is the biggest challenge you have faced as an artist so far?
well, I´can not sing, I can not play an instrument, I can not read music notes
No good singer wanted to work with me
First you’re imperfect – they ignore you, then they laugh at you
Then you evolve step by step – what I wanna say -every challenge made me stronger
In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?
I created already a Partysong, a Xmas Song, a Pop/Rock/Soul/EMD Song
Life is not black or white, midi is not always in a good or sad mood.
Down Down is a bid more on the deep, darker side..it leads you to yourself..maybe some people are afraid regarding this way.
What is the most useless talent you have?
What a funny question :-)))
I really believe every talent is useful, it only depends when and how you use it 😉
