Chiara Dubey – Find Time (Spotify)

Chiara Dubey – Find Time
(Spotify)

Chiara Dubey said about this song “I often feel that people are frightened by the idea of wasting time, dooming themselves to a hectic existence, forgetting to valorise the present, not allowing space for the little things, the little “empty” moments, ignoring the details that give to the present its flavour. Find Time is an invitation to taste the passing time instead of fearing it and fighting it. Being a classical composer , a singer, and an electronic passionate, I merged all of these components in one hybrid genre”

Neil Friedlander – Love Is a Ripple on a Lake (Spotify)

Neil Friedlander – Love Is a Ripple on a Lake
(Spotify)

“’Love is a Ripple on a Lake’ is a song about letting go and moving on. I was holding onto the pain of the past for so long that it was starting to make me forget myself. Deep down though, a voice of truth was guiding me. I had to be truly alone to know it, but love will see you through.”
Aviv Meshulam produces the track with a gentle touch. Draped over a bass line reminiscent of a 50’s groove, the steady percussions, Japanese-inspired synths, and beachy electric guitars give it an atmosphere of laid-back 80’s warmth. The song is an alt-pop meditation, with Neil’s voice coolly navigating the calmness and at other times soaring breakthrough of realisation.

Godford – Mine (Spotify)

Godford – Mine
(Spotify)

The track is the translation of the feeling you experience when you want to be with someone but despite your actions, your words and your fights, you are not able to make it happen.

Godford explains: ‘’I guess I’m fascinated by clashing two things that normally are not supposed to be together, it’s not a love song, not a techno track, it’s a feeling’’

Charley van Veldhoven interview on Nagamag

.


Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Charley van Veldhoven:
A hybrid between impressionistic and romantic classical music and jazz. Influenced by artist such as Debussy, Hiromi, Chick Corea and Nina Simone.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Charley van Veldhoven:
When I was around 6 years old I started playing the piano and I almost immediately started composing my own music. I absolutely loved improvising and doing my own thing! I used to enter competitions from the age of 8 till 14 and win several prizes! At the age of 20 I decided mechanical engineering was not quite what I wanted to do. I took two gab years and moved to London. I wrote my first album for solo piano here and started teaching at my own piano music school. Because this showed me I could live my life just doing music I got inspired to truly follow my dreams and become a composer for film and other media. I moved back to the Netherlands and started my course at Music and Technology at the HKU in the Netherlands because I love making music and I love technology! Now I have made music for several games under which the award winning game Reducept that helps people with chronic pain. I also write music for movies from LA/Netherlands and recently won the 100% her competition with Universal Production Music. Next to producing and composing for Media I still just love to improvise and do my own thing on the piano. I am super excited that the first track of my solo piano album is finally out! And there is much more of this coming this year!


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Charley van Veldhoven:
When I was around 8 years old I always loved listening to classical music CD's when playing with my toys. Then later I started finishing my solo piano compositions when I was living in London. There were many jamsessions I went to and I listened to albums of Nina Simone and Chick Corea. Living there and seeing all the amazing musicians there got me inspired to take action and start writing my album.


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Charley van Veldhoven:
Cashmere Cat "Moo"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Charley van Veldhoven:
Hiromi "Old Castle, by the river, in the middle of a forest"

Eli Jonathan – 2004 (Spotify)

Eli Jonathan – 2004
(Spotify)

2004 is a song about wrestling with the fear of people close to you leaving you behind and forgetting you. The song has some very cool modern textures and some sweet drum programming.
