Who or what inspired you to pursue a career in music and who or what have been the most important influences on your musical life
Be adaptable and do what makes you happy. Create your own path and don’t be scared of taking risks.
The greatest pleasure is hearing the musicians rehearse, perform, and bring to life my compositions. While musical notations of phrasing, dynamics, articulations, and tempi are written into scores, it is the artists’ personal interpretations and individual talents that make each live performance so special and unique.
Those are the best moments; when you’re collaborating with others and they share a way to find something new within music, and you’re thrown out of your own head.
Growing up with classical music I’ve always felt that music should be very complicated for listening in order to be ‘’great’’. With my first EP I’ve tried to avoid complex ideas. I wanted to go back to my influences and roots, but simplify the language that I’m using in order to be understood by the audience.
the greatest challenge is to remember to take pleasure in the journey of being a composer rather than being overly focused on end goals. Obviously, we have goals, but sort of ironically, the best way to get to them is to stay engaged in the day-to-day process and find joy in that.
