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"

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

Funky Notes:
Soulful-, funky-, jazzy-Instrumentals / Beats / Urban Instrumental-music


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Funky Notes:
I started making beats in 2009/2010 ruffly, before I was DJing for a couple of years and all in all loved Hip-Hop ever since I was about 8 years old. Started releasing music online in approximeately 2011/2012, first Soundcloud and Bandcamp-Releases. Had first Vinyl appearances starting 2014 and released my first EP/Alubum on wax in 2016. 2018 and 2019 two more Albums were following which both have been released digitally as well as on vinyl. I base my music-production around my MPC, a lot of vinyl and synths. I would describe my beats as varrying from raw Boom-Bap Beats to smooth, soulful instrumentals, always with my own touch.


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

Funky Notes:
Not one in particular, but when I started DJing at the age of 17 and I had many friends over, also to spit on the beats I bought on wax, I thought, "Damn, I want to make these type of beats, how does that even work...!?". It took me at leaset 3 more years to ever produce my first beat but it was still an enlightening moment.


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?

Nagamag:

Akkor:
Akkor is experimental/minimal electronica with influences from progressive, ambient and contemporary classical music. My main tools of composition are piano, synthesizers, found noises and field recordings.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Akkor:
I hold a masters degree in Sonic Arts from Istanbul Technical University's Center for Advanced Studies in Music. I was a participant of the Red Bull Music Academy 2018, Berlin.

In around 2018, I got concentrated on surround audio and creating audiovisual performances.


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

Akkor:
In around 2003, when I learned about how Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall triggered country-wide protests of racial inequities in South Africa, I realized how big being creative and productive can affect the world and became passionate about it.


Nagamag:
You mentioned audiovisual performances, can you clarify this a bit?

Akkor:
I’m very excited about creating surround audio and composing for lighting systems to create sound and light performances that are in communication. Besides my solo works, I collaborate with artists from various disciplines to design site specific live stages for Akkor. Multi-channel audio surrounds the audience, I focus on this phenomenon and try to enrich it with the visual aspect of my live performances. I also collaborate to create artistic productions such as installations and video artworks.

Soto Interview on Nagamag.com

Soto
Interview

Soto Interview on Nagamag.com

.


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

Soto:
Jazz, R&B, Funk, Soul, Neo-Soul, Hip-hop. New to the UK Jazz scene, Soto is a trio born out of Brighton with a foot in the doors of Jazz, R&B, Funk & Soul. Blending intricate rhythms and unique melodies, their feel is both a tribute to the scene, and something new altogether.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Soto:
Soto aim to make their audiences smile and groove with their work; something which undeniably helps this is the chemistry between the three founding members. Having all met in their first year at medical school, music was initially something of a side-hustle, but as the years passed it became more and more an integral to them as individuals and as a collective. Now, with their time at university drawing to a close, and a debut EP online, there'll be at least a few heads wondering what will be coming next from these guys.


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

Soto:
The feeling that first connected each of us to music is re-experienced on a regular basis. There is a deeply moving experience that arises when hearing the work of artists that touch us, and this similarly is something that is felt when we connect musically as a collective or as individuals. Music is possibly the most significant bringer of joy in any of our lives, which is why we are so determined - even with careers as doctors ready to begin - to make this a central part of our future. A life without music would always feel empty in a way.


Nagamag:
What do YOU enjoy most about writing and playing your music?

Soto:
We are all genuinely dedicated to the musical journey that we're on together. There's nothing better than when we meet for band practice and one of us says 'I've been working on this recently - what do you think?' and plays something beautiful. Many of our songs have come from one person bringing an idea forward for us to jam with, or quite literally just appearing from jams. This makes the process of writing so fun, and something we always look forward to. Similarly, what could be more fun than bringing music into a live setting? We love to improvise and leave lots of room for our songs to be different each time they are played so we can fully express ourselves musically any time we meet - we think of music as a conversation between the three of us and any listeners that may be present.


Nagamag:
Where do you see yourselves going musically?

Soto:
We hope to continue to challenge ourselves. We are always trying to explore new themes, try new things and push each other more and more musically, and this is something we hope to keep going. What we aim to do is continue writing music and hopefully entertaining people with our work. We would love to carve our a career in music, and we are so driven to this that we hope we're fortunate enough to just get that break that we need to make this viable. Whatever happens though, we want to enjoy every step of the way and be present in this journey, wherever it may go.


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?

Hypnotic Peafowl Interview on Nagamag.com

Photo by Timothée Prézélus


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

Hypnotic Peafowl:
Giving a very specific genre to my music is not easy. especially when it comes to my "alternative" productions. I think that my music is situated between Basse music with a jazzy side and synthetic textures like halfred or mindex ... and the ethnic and psychedelic side that we can find with merkaba music. The more time passes, the more my compositions are built around the musical instrument. My next outings will be much more hybrid with a very funk very colorful side. ideal music to listen to at home and play with a group in concert for example. but if I had to give only one name to write my "alternative" music I would say jazzy psybass


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Hypnotic Peafowl:
For me everything went particularly fast.I don't have a past as an instrumentalist, I did some drums lessons at the age of 7 and I stopped there. I discovered the world of the night at a young age (14 years) with the meeting of friends who organized evenings in all the region where I lived. But it never occurred to me to make music. It's only been 4 years since I started composing MAO. I lived in a shared flat where a friend had a very old computer which was not useful to anyone with an old version of ableton (I laugh today because it took at least 20 minutes to turn on the computer haha) for no reason or any ambition i turned on ableton i typed "psytrance ableton" on you tub is since i haven't spent a day without making music. I spent 3 years learning composition, mixing, musical theory, harmonization. advance use of ableton ... for 3 years I didn't go out (it's no joke I had to do 5 evenings with friends) I watched tutorials on you tub every day, I I bought a lot of music books ... then after that I played my first concert in 2018 thanks to an association of the region which is called "Lunarmouth" it is the only association which shows to the general public the psychedelic culture at home. (today I am the president) then everything went very very quickly for my project, I released my first album "enygma" independently a few weeks after this 1st date. after that I got 41 concerts in my 1st year of activity in 2018/2019. I had the pleasure of playing all over France. I also produced 28 music during this period which gave me constant visibility on the net. In 2019 I officially joined the Hadra records label. Hadra obviously offers me great visibility throughout France but also enormous support for my professionalization and allows me today to make music. in February 2020 I published my new EP on Zenon records which is a great joy for me because it is one of the best world label in my eyes. Today I am fortunate to live in France and benefit from a special status unique to France which allows me to live on my music. I have more and more dates, programmed a few times a year in advance and the international market is beginning to open its doors to me. I continue to bring the psychedelic movement to life in my region by organizing evenings every month with my associations and the support of all its members and of course that of the best club in the city in my eyes "the front door". I give MAO lessons in my studio during the week when I am not producing and I go to play on weekends. I have a busy life and it is an immense pleasure to live that.


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

Hypnotic Peafowl:
I remember my 1st party it was Timegate in Switzerland for New Year it is a huge Psytrance party over several days but it was not a revelation for me. honestly the first time electronic music had a real impact on me it was in 2018 (haha yes it was not long ago) I went to an open air psytrance very far from home (10h of car) and I met Version Bizar. I first listened to his live and then I met the man afterwards. The meeting with him mixed with the Zenonesque style of his music was a revelation for me at that time. We had a very strong connection together and it made me discover so much incredible music. He played a bass music djset later that evening and I heard kinds of music that I wasn’t able to imagine before. So I would say that if I have a memory that marked me the most with music and the most changed is this Leon meeting, he became a real source of inspiration for me and will remain so.


Nagamag:
What is your vision of electronic music ?

Hypnotic Peafowl:
For me music is a language that you have to learn in order to master it and develop it. I think that electronic music responds to the same code as acoustic music when we talk about music theory, harmonization, the placement of its instruments in the stereo field ect ect. My vision of electronic music is what allows me to explore even further the sound systems and the design of my sounds but also the impact on the live spectator, the physical experience it brings. Playing with emotions is achievable with any type of music (jazz, rap, electro ...) but playing on the physical sensations in concert and something specific to electronic music I find. We have certain constraints with our instrument certain limits impossible to exceed. Electronic music allows me to go further. But beware if I have a Rhode, a piano or any other instrument I don't see the point of replacing it for an electronic version. I imagine that like two completely complementary world one will never replace the other but they complement each other perfectly well if the artist makes sense in the use of electronic music.


Nagamag:
What was most important to you in your career and what do you recommend?

Hypnotic Peafowl:
I would say that having a supportive environment is very important. having the presence of mind to analyze our friends and ask the question of their knowledge in the world of music is important. for example when we make listen to our music to our friends most tell you that they are good and do not dare to hurt you (unconsciously for the most part). you have to know create an entourage of people who will hustle you when your productions are not at the top. Its very important.
Have someone who accompanies you on a daily basis and who understands the issues. for my part it is my companion who supports me from the beginning (morally and financially)
knowing my shortcomings and developing personal techniques to stimulate well-being was of great help to me. Meditation for example.
And finally i would say that good management of your project is essential from the start. In our hyper connected era it is important to pay attention to one's artistic image and not to mix private and professional life.


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?

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

Daytuner (Moai System):
Ambient, Downtempo, Psydub, Chillout, Cinematics


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Daytuner (Moai System):
As a music producer, from classical background (15 years of violin and music school) to electronic music for more than 30 years, I feel so grateful because that gave me great opportunities to meet, learn and work with amazing artists from all around the world. I recently decided to get FULLY involved in the music industry and my band (Moai System) already released several Eps and singles with different indie labels including Nutek Chill since December 2017. I'm also the manager of a webradio (Pranamusic Radio) specialized in promoting electronic music for 2 years.


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

Daytuner (Moai System):
I was 6 years old, and I was watching a concert of Yehudi Menuhin playing a concerto of Brahms for violin. The sound mesmerized me totally, and from this moment I knew my fate was emotionnaly linked to music.


Nagamag:
What attracts you in the electronic music production ?

Daytuner (Moai System):
The alchemy of sound and composition. Pushing the frontiers of imagination, while working with evocative sounds and mixing harmonies.


Nagamag:
Philosophical question : According to your experience, what is the "essence" of creativity in music terms ?

Daytuner (Moai System):
Difficult question, but I would say that a music composer and an artist in general has this skill (gift) which makes him/her able to receive (consciously or not) these higher vibes and to interpret or translate them with emotions linked to his/her personal history in that world.

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

Project Divinity:
Chillout, Ambient, Drone

Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Project Divinity:
I have been producing music in my home studio since 2006 focusing on cinematic and ambient styles. I have a few different artist monikers that each focus on specific style and genre of which Project Divinity is the most ambient and laid back one. Others include Celestial Aeon Project (cinematic / soundtrack), Frozen Silence (piano) and Celestial Alignment (lofi beats) to name a few. I don't have a strong classical background nor have I studied composition nor arrangement, so you can say I'm mostly self learned and approach music from improvisation and "using my ear" kind of angle. Usually I just push record and start playing.

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

Project Divinity:
I have always loved music and played piano and guitar since a small child, but I think the moment that really got me interested in production was back in the day when I first played a computer role playing game Baldur's Gate which had a gorgeous cinematic soundtrack by Michael Hoenig. It just got me thinking that if even games can have this kind of music I want to be a part of the realm in which these soundtracks are being created.

Nagamag:
What do you think of the streaming services and way the internet has changed the music business?

Project Divinity:
I think in many ways they have opened up new possibilities especially for indie producers like myself. Before this era there were no means for an unknown musician to get the music heard anywhere. Only way was through traditional labels and "gatekeepers". Process was heavy and hard to get started. But these days the freedom comes from the fact that after you have created your tune, after a few mouse clicks you will get it on the streaming services and potentially heard all over the world. There are no more gatekeepers to keep you from reaching that point. It's more about the music and the listener and how to create that connection instead of how the get the music heard in the first place. I personally find this new world a fascination realm full of possibilities. But I do understand that for many who were "happy in the old world" it's not that simple.

Nagamag:
What does music mean to you?

Project Divinity:
It is a complex thing. When I create music, I sometimes think practically like "what would people want to hear" and then approach that question from my side, finding a balance between what is my sound, but still something I think some other listener might enjoy as well. But then there also comes these moments of pure creation when I just get the urge to create exactly what I want no matter if anyone else enjoys it or not. So it's a scale between totally personal and "I do it for the others" kind of state of mind. But music itself is one of the most interesting forms of art and something bigger than life itself.

Nagamag:

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

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
Chillout, Ambient, Electronic, Deephouse

Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
I started in 1992 with an Amiga 500, the 4-track music program Octamed and an 8-bit sequencer! Bit by bit new elements were added, a Korg 01w / FD, an Atari computer was needed for the first Cubase, later a PC, in 1998 I had a real studio with many analog synthesizers, one of the first digital mixing consoles, Akai samplers and so on. Back then, I had done a lot of music with a friend and later a DJ from Bremen, house and techno. When I first moved to Heidelberg 2001, I no longer had the space for a studio and gradually sold everything and only had a PC, a master keyboard and speakers. Because of my medical studies I had less and less time for music, that was in Marburg, where I also met my current colleague Thomas Lemmer. Many years later I sent him a few tracks and our first song Pastelstrand was released on his album pure! After that we released our first EPs and album together. We also got great remixes for the EPs. We are currently working on our second album and I am really looking forward to the next release! stay tuned, it's worth it!

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

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
I first love to electronic music was like written bevor the Amiga 500! Before that I had no real music style and I mostly heard charts. It was great to experiment and to experience electronic music in every detail. Jean michel jarre was my role idol.

Nagamag:
Did you make money with music?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
Yes, of course, a fraction of a cent per stream. Last year I earned almost a few euros! 🙂 still nothing to live on. But music should primarily make people happy, when money is added it is nice but not important.

Yes, getting in touch with the score of the movie “The Adventures of Chatran”, by Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto, which I listened to for the first time when I was around 4.
