What do you think is one of the biggest challenges in creating powerful music?
Pharma: Creating any type of music that makes sense should be considered a challenge, it’s not hard to put sounds together but it is hard to make sense out of it. From chord progressions, different rhythms, to the fundamental composition of a tune, every element on its own is hard to master in my opinion. Powerful music thrives from emotion, positive or negative, so I would consider the biggest challenge to transfer one’s emotions into a corresponding feeling that the tune gives off. When purposely producing powerful or emotional music, I would highly focus on the melodic elements first and then try to build the rest of the tune around those.
Pharma: Both tracks were produced around roughly the same time, I was trying out new tempo’s around 120 bpm and came up with these ideas. ‘Hebra’ starts with haunting keys and continues to switch from a soothing 2 step beat to a babylonian inspired breakdown. ‘Wait 4 You’ doesn’t feel like anything else that I’ve ever done before. I couldn’t tell you what I was aiming for with the tune but I know it depicts exactly how I was feeling at that time. It is difficult to describe because I can’t exactly find the right words for it, but there are many thought-out details you eventually notice and appreciate if you listen to the tune in its entirety.
