Talk to us more about your latest release
The album “this world does not belong to us was conceived in November 2019 whilst seeing drastic changes in patterns, people, and the world surrounding me. Dreams that would come through as torments would be documented in sound, such as “Close your eyes son” were all I could see was ashes in the air and this boy’s grandfather closing his eyes to avoid seeing what was yet to hit him. “Empty grounds”, where the boy survived the chaos yet his grandfather had lost his life trying to save his grandchild. Grounds are empty and not a soul passing by. Similar to what is happening this present moment.
Close your eyes Son:
What inspired you to write this release?
I could say that all my inspirations come from visions, dreams and even life learned experiences, where words cannot describe the emotion behind the true canvas as sound can.
Describe the writing and recording process
It took me 4 months to fully design this album from visualization and creating the closest to what was perceived.
With the lockdown, it just gave me more time to sit around the project and focus on every note and moment to build the story.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
My purpose is to share the world messages through sound. I play the piano to give to others the emotion they need for that instance. I was born with talent. I can’t read music and all I do was self-taught throughout the years.
Who have you been listening to lately?
I have been listening to Yiruma, Ludovico Einaudi, Khatia Buniatishvili apart from other musicians like Dulce pontes, Mariza, Cuca rosetta.
Who are your biggest influences?
Yiruma, Ludovico Einaudi, Khatia Buniatishvili
