Mason Stephenson Interview on Nagamag

melancholy

.


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

Mason Stephenson:
My music focuses on a romantic/classic style and features a melancholy and peaceful sound.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Mason Stephenson:
I have played piano for around four years, on and off, and I began writing my own pieces at the start of 2020. Since then I have released two pieces and I have more pieces ready for release in the near future.


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

Mason Stephenson:
I played piano for the first time in secondary school but not long after, I decided to play guitar which my best friend taught me. I used to play guitar in a heavy metal band for a few years before going back to piano and discovering my love for classical music.


Nagamag:
What is your creative process like?

Mason Stephenson:
I am a big believer of just playing the way you feel. Wether that be pouring your feelings into music as a way of release or delving into your emotions for a great sense of connection with what you play.


Nagamag:
Who are some of your influences?

Mason Stephenson:
My favourite composer will always be Chopin. I always feel that his pieces contain so much raw emotion and are so intricate that they will always interest me. In modern classical I am also a big lover of a composer called Eric Christian, his music is massively romantic which is one of my favourite qualities of piano pieces. I find that romantic pieces can really tell a story and paint a picture in your mind without the need for words. I find that being able to tell a story with only notes and melody is a truly remarkable art form.


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

Mason Stephenson:
Fleetwood Mac "Rhiannon"

Matthew Avery Interview on Nagamag

melancholy


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

Matthew Avery:
Classical, minimalism, ambient, melancholy.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Matthew Avery:
I used to play guitar in several punk/hardcore bands from age 15-23 and then slowly began composing on piano over the next years. I find the sounds of the piano soothing and more conducive towards composing songs that inspire strong emotions. Guitar is still an amazing instrument that I enjoy playing, but the piano has taken over as my instrument of choice over the past few years.


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

Matthew Avery:
My first real love of music came when I heard AFI's album "Sing the Sorrow". The guitar tones, song structures, lyrics, melodies and production quality were all so perfect in capturing a sort of romantic feeling of sadness. I would say my biggest inspiration for composing instrumental music came later from listening to movie soundtracks done by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis as well as Clint Mansell. They were able to inspire so much emotion with minimalistic piano-based songs.
