1. High profile projects or clients you have worked for?

Actually I have never worked on such high profile projects. I am creating music more as a hobby and that gives me the freedom to work only on things that I enjoy. In the past I have made music for 2 student movies but the most professional recording that I took part into was during the studio sessions with our  band Scryed.

2. Primary instrument?

Guitar and voice.

3. Favorite music-making piece of gear or software you currently use?

My favorite piece of gear is definitely my favorite guitar – Epiphone Sheraton 2

I also like the Shure 565sd microphone which I use always except for studio sessions.

4. Piece of gear or software you wish you owned?

I have always wanted to have one of these tube driven large-diaphragm microphones. Maybe Neumann or AKG…

5. Film score or song you admire? Why?

There are so many songs that I admire but if I have to point out one it will be a song by QUEEN.

Let’s say “Don’t stop me now”. This band made their songs to perfection. They are simple enough for the crowds to be able to sing it and complex enough for the professional musicians to admire.

6. Music education background?

I don’t have the classical music education but I have some music education background. As a student I was taking private guitar lessons for 4 years. Later I spent one year taking singing lessons. In the university I finished 2 years of sound engineering and recording courses.

7. Most embarrassing music-related moment?

I can not point out any such specific moments.

8. If you had a time machine and could record or perform once with any artist, who would it be?

Prince J – he seems to know everything about music. He performs great, records great and sounds great.

9. Moment you first knew you would be a musician?

It was 1992 and I was watching a concert in memory of Freddie Mercury on the TV. I was 12 years old and that was the first time I opened my mind for music.

10. Advice you would give to a younger family member interested in a music career?

I am not in a position to give any advices as I don’t have any outstanding achievements in that business. Music is a tough job and I decided to have some easier and better paid job (currently I make my money as a software developer) and to leave the music for my free time. How ever I still keep my dream to make something big into music and I am working hard on it.

So I will just say : “Keep your dream”

11. Five songs or albums you’d take with you to a desert island?

Queen – Innuendo

Michael Jackson – Invincible

Prince – Musicology

Muse – Black Holes and Revelations

Lily Allen – It’s Not Me, It’s You

13. If you could master another instrument, what would it be?


14. Favorite time of day to work in your studio?

Mid day.

15. Any studio collaboration you experienced that stands out in your mind? Why?

Recording with Scryed was a funny time – every band member had hes own opinion about everything, but finally we did the job 😉
