Ryan Flynn Interview on Nagamag

.


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

Ryan Flynn:
The genres that better describe the music style would be Synth Pop, Indie Pop, and Indie Electronic.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Ryan Flynn:
Originally begun as an experimental side project while in film school, ryan flynn has since evolved into a perpetual orb-praising space pop venture. It was in Rochester, NY that ryan flynn established his signature funky synth pop sound, solidified by the release of an eponymous EP in 2019 with widespread praise from the local community.
In 2020, ryan flynn took to the road with his Moog synthesizer, writing and performing improvisational pieces inspired by the scenery across the country.

Currently, ryan flynn is focusing on writing and releasing new tunes such as "Seems Like Yesterday," "Pressure," and "Outside" alongside creating tasteful visuals to accompany the releases.


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

Ryan Flynn:
My first connection to music was certainly through my parents love for music. I was consistently surrounded by great music and was fortunate to have a piano in our home. No one else could play, but I'm pretty sure it was just there when we bought our house on Long Island. I would fool around and eventually grew to love the instrument! Once high school hit, I found myself writing and performing in a metal band with some great friends. I'd say with all of those things coming together, this was my pathway into music.


Nagamag:
Do you have any plans to follow the release of the latest single, "Outside?"

Ryan Flynn:
Yes! We have a music video for "Outside" coming out December 16th. For the music video, I've combined and edited the works of two amazing artists together; Micah Buzan, who does the beautiful animation, and Taryn Elliot, who does the amazing landscape filmography. The combination of the two really vibes with the the track and I can't wait for people to connect the visuals with the track!


Nagamag:
Most artists have a favorite song from a different music genre than the one they are producing music for... Which is yours?

Ryan Flynn:
Steely Dan "Hey Nineteen"


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

Ryan Flynn:
Tame Impala Let It Happen

Lyrics of Scoobert Doobert – it gets better

You’re my ray of sunshine
Don’t you be cloudy
Darling so bright, what’s getting you down?
I’ll cheer you up
And warm ya, make it all better
Ray of sunshine
Will you come around?

It gets better
It will get better soon
It gets better
It will get better soon
Ooo ooo
Ooo ooo
Ooo ooo
Ooo ooo ooo

You’re the light of my life
Moon on the water
My north star on a lonely Pacific
You’re my ray of sunshine
Nurturing our garden
Warming up our family
Through the dog days of winter

It gets better
It will get better soon
It gets better
It will get better soon

Maybe tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow
Tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow
Maybe tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow
Tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow
Maybe tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow
Tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow
Maybe tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow
Tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow

Ooo ooo

Only Ghosts – Voide

June 12th, 2024|Tags: , , , , , , |

“Ένας ήρεμος αλλά ανήσυχος ρυθμός αγκαλιάζει την καρδιά σου και σου φέρνει στο σήμερα εικόνες του παρελθόντος. Όμορφες και άσχημες στιγμές μπλέκονται σε μια υπέροχη μελωδία και στριφογυρίζουν αναπάντεχα μέσα στο μυαλό σου. Αγάπες, έρωτες και πάθη στήνουν χορό και σε οδηγούν με τον τρόπο τους στο τώρα που όλα έχουνε ξεδιαλύνει πια μέσα σου.”

-Nagamag.com

“A calm yet restless rhythm embraces your heart and brings you images of the past into the present. Beautiful and ugly moments intertwine into a wonderful melody and twist unexpectedly inside your mind. Loves, romances and passions set up a dance and lead you in their own way to now that everything has dissolved inside you.”

-Nagamag.com

“Ein ruhiger, aber unruhiger Rhythmus umarmt Ihr Herz und bringt Ihnen Bilder der Vergangenheit in die Gegenwart. Schöne und hässliche Momente verschmelzen zu einer wundervollen Melodie und drehen sich unerwartet in Ihrem Kopf. Lieben, Romanzen und Leidenschaften bilden einen Tanz und führen dich auf ihre eigene Weise in die Welt, in der sich alles in dir aufgelöst hat.”

These are just a few examples of the many subgenres of Blogwave that have emerged over the years. Many Blogwave artists and DJs draw inspiration from multiple subgenres and may incorporate elements of several different styles into their music.

The most used instruments in Blogwave Music

In Blogwave music, synthesizers are the most common and important instrument used. Synthesizers are electronic instruments that generate sounds by creating and modifying waveforms. They can produce a wide range of sounds, including melodies, chords, basslines, and effects, and are often used to create the signature sound of Blogwave music.

Other common instruments used in Blogwave music include drum machines, samplers, and sequencers. Drum machines are electronic instruments that produce drum and percussion sounds, while samplers allow users to record and play back samples of sounds, such as drum hits or individual notes from a synthesizer. Sequencers are used to program and arrange musical patterns and can be used to create complex, layered compositions.

Guitars, basses, and other traditional instruments are also sometimes used in Blogwave music, often in conjunction with synthesizers and other electronic instruments. In some cases, these instruments may be played live, while in others they may be processed through electronic effects or played using software instruments.

Vocals: Vocals can be used in Blogwave music, but they are not always present. Some Blogwave tracks are purely instrumental, while others feature vocals as a prominent element.

In Blogwave music, vocals are often treated as just another sound source, similar to a synthesizer or drum machine. They may be processed through electronic effects to give them a particular sound or texture, or they may be used in combination with other electronic instruments to create a more layered, complex sound.

Many Blogwave tracks feature vocals that are sung or spoken in a style that is reminiscent of 1980s pop and new wave music. These vocals may be treated with effects such as reverb, delay, or vocoding to give them a retro or futuristic feel.

Overall, the use of vocals in Blogwave music is a matter of personal preference for the artist or producer creating the track. Some Blogwave tracks are purely instrumental, while others feature vocals as a key element of the sound.

Overall, the most important instrument in Blogwave music is the synthesizer, which is used to create the majority of the sounds heard in this genre. Other electronic instruments, such as drum machines and samplers, are also commonly used to shape and augment the sounds produced by synthesizers.
