What was the inspiration/is there a story behind your track?
The time I have to work on my own music (I write/produce for other artists) is usually late at night or early in the morning. This led me to write in a special way, when the house and the city are really quiet. I can’t really sing at 1am or play my guitar. It led me to write computer-based music…with headphones on!
What did your process involve?
Choosing and shaping sounds is an important part of the process. Some sounds trigger some mental images, memories, inspiration. Then I write the parts, usually, it’s done in an hour or two. This is the part all creative people love. The longest job is always bringing the track from a demo to a record. This is hard work, but I like it. Somehow, the dreamer and the doer agreed to agree in me!
Do you have a favourite line/section of the song?
I like when the piano comes in. It wants to tell a story. I spent some time ‘lofi-ing’ it. This is one aspect of modern production that fascinates me: making pristine sounds sound old and a bit broken. The vinyl crackles were added to recreate that older vibe too…The music-snake bites its tail and creates new shapes!
Can you describe your sound in three words?
Evocative, nocturnal, organic.
What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM Dublin?
Being in a music world 24/7. If you’re honest and open to it, you’ll see what is your own special place in that world. There’s not just one road.
