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

Nell Widmer:
My music style is very electronic, with house and RnB influences.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Nell Widmer:
First of all, you have to know that I learned to sing alone, so since I was 9 years old I've been singing. I went on but this time I shared videos of covers of artists I liked a lot. And in 2018 I was contacted following my recordings on Soundcloud, and that was the beginning of writing in English and creating melodies. Since then, I released my EP 2 years later so in 2020 to be able to show all the different colors of my voice.


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

Nell Widmer:
The first connection with music dates back to my early childhood. I have always been rocked by the Black Eyed Peas and Michael Jackson and the very first time I sang was to music by Michael when I was 2 years old. So I think it's thanks to this musical culture that I've built up which has given me this desire to create and write.


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?

Nell Widmer:
Valentino Khan "Better"

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

The Rashomon Effect:
Ambient electronic music with acoustic instruments


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

The Rashomon Effect:
I bought my first guitar when I was twelve years old and since then have played in metal, soul, folk and post-punk bands in Seattle, Los Angeles, Budapest and New York City. I’ve learned from many great teachers along the way. Around five years ago I started to make electronic music, which was a perfect fit since I love composition and sound design.


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

The Rashomon Effect:
When I was around six, my mother gave me a set of tapes that told the life stories of great composers – Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, etc. I listened to them every night in my bed when I was supposed to be sleeping. That early love of music has never stopped evolving through styles and genres over the years. There is always more to know and more to discover. I’ve always loved meeting and playing with musicians from other countries and cultures, and the way music can circumvent the intellect and touch the heart. Music has always been deeply healing for me and in these times I am finding that aspect more important than ever.


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?

The Rashomon Effect:
Charles Mingus "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat"


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

The Rashomon Effect:
Floating Points "Silhouettes (I,II,III)"
