Interview with METVTRXN
1. Who are your influences in the game and in your personal life?
Well, For starters I would say some earliear composers. Beethoven, Chopin, Vivaldi..Etc. As, growing up with Jazz, Hip-hop, and other genres; I can say I'm influenced from all eras. In EDM (electronic dance music) Zomboy, Nero, Rusko, Zeds Dead. They were some of my starter influences. I truly also try to be my own influence as well. Find Inspiriration within.
2. If you could compare yourself to an already established artist, who would that be and
If I could; I would.. not to sound concited I dont have a relative sound to any specific artist. I have a very distinct sound. Though, iduuno. I havent put much thought into that really. I can say Zomboy i suppose. Being the fact his diversity and since I can say hes is an influence I blend my tracks well with those artist. If that makes sense.
3. What do you think your listeners will get out of your music?
It's a soundscape, They receive a story that they arent just immersed in; they are a part of. a connection to who I am. A bond, music is not just meant to be heard..or felt..it's to be understood. A way to connect with the artist. The creator. I love creating detailed stories in all forms. Audio, written, visual.
4. What were you thinking about when your songs are developed? Explain your
The process is hard due to me not having an idea to start with all the time. I honestly just meditate. Find the sources of all my emotion, thoughts, conversations. The small way the sun came through the window. I center it all. and find the connection with my soul and spirit. Then I begin so get a strong visual like a movie. I usually play with keys, or lately my guitar, I draw from everywhere. There isn't really any set start piece with creating. I just use my love and passion for my gift. Its an appreciation. Like a samurai and his sword.
5. What made you want to get into the business?
Oh, well as a musician music has been in my life for years. Its only fitting I found a craft/niche that can take all the years of practice and place em all in one DAW. Then as a performer I can share my other talents while in use of another. Just like playing with bands. Its juat a beautiful feeling. I feel complete.
6. What is the most difficult thing you’ve had to endure in life?
Ah..I would have to say my accident in 2015. I still have the consistent battle till this day. Its something I cant get used to. Constant pain on a daily basis. Makes creating and even enjoying life a task. Chronic pain is the worst. I wish it upon no one. For those ehoe endure now; my heart goes out to you.
7. What do you hope to do with your music?
To inspire, Invoke thought and allow the listener to open a new creative path in life. To open the connection to oneself by, relating and understanding who I am.
8. Are there any questions that you were expecting that I didn’t ask and want to
Honestly, Im not sure. I enjoyed the questions.
9. Do you have your own songs in your favourite playlist?
Haha. Yes. Its the only true way to test my goal. let it play with everything else. I can hear diffent sounds, its how i reference. Plus, i you dont enjoy your own creations then why are you doing it?
