You look like a musician who knows what he wants, who is confident in what he is doing. Do you have a plan or an end point that you want to grow to?
Sincerely, so far, I would like, as many people as possible, to listen to my debut album "The Vices of the Beautiful". And then we'll see:) But as a musician I feel like I'm just on my start actually. I see deeper immerses and much bigger experiments within the next albums.
What qualities, in your opinion, should an artist have today?
Again, these are two different stories. If a person just wants to be an artist, then first of all, he must be hardworking. Then have at least some talent:) It would be nice to have a plan. It is important to develop your taste, your horizons in principle. If you have of a «business grip», intelligence, charisma — they will work on you. As in any other business, there is no difference.
If we are talking about art, it is important not to lose inspiration to work hard on what you are writing, to finish it, to socialise it, even if your art does not bring you money or fame at all. I know some great musicians who were unable to continue because of the depressions that went through at this base. But on the other hand, I believe that a real artist should have enough inner will for this.
How do you understand the phrase "inner truth"?
I think this is when you are clearly aware of what is happening in your head. The inner truth is not necessarily about beauty and nobility, it is important to know yourself "face to face". What you really want, why you want, what you really think, etc.
Globally, recently I can't find a group that I could fall in love with. Recently, I listened to Björk's album «Vulnicura» may be 6 times in a row..I think I fell it, as I did not feel her others. I liked the album "I Speak Because I Can" by Laura Marling
But basically, still, Elliot Smith, Cocteau twins, Blonde Redhead, Francois Hardy, Sinead O' Connor, Joy Division, Thom Yorke, The Cure, David Bowie — are my favorites.
But I try to listen to something new every week! There are a lot of great bands in the world, including unknown ones, it's worth trying to let them in.
Does the music you listen to influences on your art? What has been your inspiration for the last few months?
