In the end, it all comes down to experiencing feelings. I make music cause it helps remember.
- Sorry Ryan
How long have you been creating music?
I have been creating music for 4 years now. I do the production, recording and songwriting all by myself.
Do you have a preferred genre?
I’m really into all genres, even production wise I try to not to limit myself. I know I only have one song released now, but the next one I’ll be releasing will have an electro-acoustic vibe for instance.
Tell us about your latest song, EP, or album.
The song I am presenting you is all about recreating a short passionate encounter. I tried making it pleasant and unpleasant at the same time throughout an intriguing and melancholic vibe. It’s called EUPHORIA, for even though moments like this can be emotionally intense, they unfortunately never last.
Are there any challenging aspects to writing and/or recording your music?
Regarding challenges, the main one would have to be that I’m actually a full time student, meaning that it’s a time related issue. I try to squeeze in as much hours of music production and recording in my timetable but sometimes I have no other choice than to focus on my studies.
Has your style evolved since the beginning of you career?
I joined the conservatory of my town when I was 4 years old. I have a classical background with a solid formation in solfeggio and piano, so this surely helps when I produce yet I moved from classical to a more « pop » music as soon as I realized that’s what moved me. I started by rapping four years ago but got back to singing over the last two years.
What do you enjoy most about being a musician?
What I love the most is the creation aspect and its cathartic effect. Producing allows me to transfer what I’m feeling into a vibe and it’s the most efficient way of doing so, for it’s the only one that works for me and writing songs allows me to understand myself and the world better.
Playing live or recording in studio? Do you have a preference?
Considering the fact that my room is my studio and even though I love my room, I would still pick performing live over it.
Do you have a preference… vinyl records, cassettes, CDs, or downloads?
I love the sound and the design of vinyls. there’s something unique about them, which I find very pleasant.
Are there any musicians who inspire you? What qualities do you admire about them?
There are way too much and it would be a dishonor to name one and not the others, but generally, what they have in common is their ability to be empathetic throughout their songs and in doing so, to touch your heart.
Would you like to travel to other countries to perform your music? If so, what would be your first stop?
I already had the chance to travel a lot during my studies – 2 years in London, 6 months in Copenhagen and I am now back in Paris where I was born. I performed some gigs along the way (nothing big) but if I had to make another stop, I would go back to London immediately. There’s no other city in which I would rather be to perform music.
Are you currently working on any projects we should look out for?
I’m working singles after singles for now, trying to build momentum for an album. I’m putting a lot of work in the next one, which means a lot to me. It speaks about love but this time, it’s the one that lasts.
Is there something you would like to say, that we didn’t cover?
I think I spoke my mind. Thank you very much for giving me this opportunity ! I truly appreciate it.
