Andrei Vladulescu, AKA Livingroom Classics, is a musician who is keen to express himself artistically.  Livingroom Classics’ music is suitable for a range of productions including films, TV, documentaries, commercials, website audio, corporate videos, music videos and other new media applications.

–Primary instrument?

The guitar; I am more attracted to the acoustic guitar, but the guitar in general.

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

My favorite piece of software is the EWQLSO Gold vst plugin.

–Piece of gear or software you wish you owned?

Actually, I wish I had a Fender Precision bass and the blue Classic Vibe Squier.

–Film score or song you admire? Why?

I’m a fan of the 1978 “Superman” soundtrack.

I’m also a big fan of Thomas Newman’s ‘Scent of a Woman’ soundtrack and James Horner’s ‘Star Trek – The Wrath of Khan’ and ‘The Land Before Time’.

I’m also quite attached to the ‘Drive (2011)’ soundtrack – Kavinsky’s ‘Nightcall’ and Desire’s ‘Under Your Spell’.

They all send chills down my spine.

–Most embarrassing music-related moment?

Pretty much all my stage related moments when I played as a guitarist in my ex-band’s concerts. I was always very awkward and rigid while playing. The public pretty much always intimidated me. There were, of course, the classic moments when my guitar strings would break in the middle of the song, or the moments when the audience would boo us (but that was with another band).

One embarrassing moment was at a concert when during a song that I forgot a part of it and thought I had finished the song and just stopped playing. The other members were caught by surprise and everything quickly fell apart. The audience thought it was over so they began applauding but I then remembered I still hadn’t done the solo so I made desperate signs to the audience to stop applauding trying to say it’s not over yet. I began playing again (after some laughter from the audience) from the solo onward, but the singers didn’t know what to do because I also kind of messed up the structure of the song so it was all just an embarrassing mess, with everybody just kind of playing whatever they remembered until we finally ended it and wiped the sweat off our foreheads feeling relieved that we managed to pull that off and quickly going for the beers sitting in front of us 🙂

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

Well, I’m not as good as any of my favorite artists so I couldn’t pick one to perform with, but I definitely would’ve liked meeting Elvis in his prime: sort of hanging out with him backstage before a concert, when nobody knew him, like in 54 or so.

–Moment you first knew you would be a musician?

I’m not sure that moment has arrived. I had music in my mind since like 15-16 (I’m 31 now), but I don’t think I ever knew as a certain thing that I would be a musician and I still have lots of doubts. There were and are, however, many moments when I realized that there’s nothing else I’d rather do. For now, I’m more like a musician wannabe.

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

Yes: start early I would say, and always choose the right people. Like if they were to play in a band, always be wary when choosing band members. Also, I’d tell them that if they know they would rather do music than anything else, then they should not compromise at all – like taking a job to support them self while pursuing their dreams or pursuing education that’s not related to music or something like that, that would ultimately just distract them. I would also tell them to think of music like they would of any other career – as something that requires work and dedication and decency – like any other career option. To not get into the illusions of fame or drugs/money and to just try to earn a decent living from it and to limit his earnings to that– to use his future music career as a means to express his feelings and not as a scheme to get rich. To treat it as a 9 to 5 job, but a job that he would enjoy. This is the advice that I’d probably give to me too, because I’ve yet to follow them.

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

– A compilation of ‘The Ink Spots’

– An album of Chopin’s nocturnes

– Elvis’s Christmas album 1957

– Tiesto’s ‘Elements of Life’ album

– Elvis’s ‘The Sun Sessions’ compilation

And if there is room for a sixth, Led Zeppelin’s live double album ‘The Song Remains the Same”.

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

The piano seems quite interesting.

–Favorite time of day to work in your studio?

Around 10-11 a.m.

–2 or 3 of your favorite tracks that you would want us to feature in the blog.

‘Broken Love’

‘Sunshine Carousel’

‘She Touches’
