Do you give complete freedom to fellow collaborators or would you rather specify a concrete idea/direction?
I give full freedom to collaborators, for me this is the point of collabing with another artist. I want them to give their fully untainted creativity. I collab with artists I trust and know will make the art better. When making art I believe there should be no boundaries, Collabing with artists that have an expectation of a sound is lame. The only time that maybe this should apply in my opinion is for a more conceptual piece, for example writing music for a movie.
What is your favourite visual realm that you like to visit for inspiration?
This is a very large portion of my inspiration, One of my biggest visual inspirations is the series called “Mr.Robot”. I could not recommend this enough. I really love Sci-Fi. It fuels me with inspiration, I think the idea of creating worlds that don’t physically exist is truly where I like to bring my music and that is what the genre Sci-FI means to me. My grandpas art as well is a very large visual inspiration. I also enjoy all of this new really techy art like crypto art and CGI style. Abstract art in any form seems to inspire me a ton.
How does 2021 look to you?
2021 looks like another calm year, with I hope, a ton of music to be made. However I cannot wait to play shows, travel and go to festivals again soon. I miss the community and the feeling of having my face blown off by subs with my close friends.
