/ What are your music projects at the moment? What’s planned for the rest of 2020?
I will have a busy December with 3 collaborations releases, one with electronic producer Andrea Soru, part of his new album on the current mass extinction, and two neoclassical pieces, one with Karen Biehl filled with a magical Christmas vibe, and a contemplative track with Javi Lobe called ‘Infinity’. I’m also finalising the production and mixing of a meditative album to be released early next year.
/ What’s you’re favourite hideout if you need a break?
I like going for a retreat near natural and ancient sites. Currently I’m spending a few days break in a Vietnamese mountain called Yen Tu, filled with lush forests, waterfalls and temples. Morning yoga, walks in nature, healthy food, and good books.
/ Name the most influential person in your life who isn’t a musician. (And tell us why he/she has got such an impact on your life.)
It is quite impossible for me to narrow down to one single person, and now that I think of it most would have been musicians, but I always looked up to philosophers and knowledge in general. More recently I have been quite influenced by the books of Eckhart Tolle, Sadhguru and Michael A Singer and their perspectives on life.
