How long have you been making music?
I find it difficult to calculate, as I've been starting and quitting then lots of times. I used to have many projects in different areas.
Why have you been quitting?
As soon as something was starting out, I found more important things to do than to make music; probably, I just didn't know what should I do next.
What has changed for now?
I feel calm; I've put my life in order.
What influences and inspires you?
Science and contemporary art influences me. As for science, it is more about technological progress. My wife always says that I love my instruments more than her. Since the very childhood, I used to have more fun spending time with tech equipment than with friends. However, I fancy the opportunities provided by technology, not the hardware itslef. Music as an art form inspires me, of course; I wonder how it affects people in general.
What instruments do you use?
I will never enumerate. I can only say that I am more comfortable working with software than with an axe. However, in order to really understand software, I had to spend a fortune on hardware.
Do you consider yourself a beginner producer? Is it difficult to identify yourself correctly?
I will keep on thinking of myself as a beginner until some major label releases my records; yes, there is such kind of a stereotype. According to this, it does not seem to be really difficult to position myself.
