A Winged Victory For The Sullen – So That The City Can Begin To Exist (Invisible Cities, 2021) (Video)

“When viscous silence instead of a thousand faceless words fills your insides. When the gray colors of gloomy cities remain on the horizon. When two worlds unite – the world of Neoclassical and Ambient, the immersion into the new single A Winged Victory For The Sullen – So That The City Can Begin To Exist begins.”

“Когда вязкая тишина вместо тысячи безликих слов заполняет твоё нутро. Когда серые краски угрюмых городов остаются за горизонтом. Когда соединяются два мира – мир Neoclassical и Ambient, начинается погружение в новый сингл A Winged Victory For The Sullen – So That The City Can Begin To Exist. ”

Mason Stephenson Interview on Nagamag

Neoclassical

.


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:
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?

Mason Stephenson:
Fleetwood Mac "Rhiannon"


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

Mason Stephenson:
Eric Christian "Valse Arabesque No.1"

The sound that these artists represented back then hit me instantly and I wanted to explore how music like this was created. That eventually led me on the path of music creation and I worked my way through a few genres before landing in the ambient genre.

What are the genres that describe better your music style?

We Dream of Eden:
Ambient Neo Classical with Post Rock and Film Score influences


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

We Dream of Eden:
I've been a music producer for over a decade mostly producing for singer songwriters and hip hop artists. Then I began dabbling in film music. I spent a year composing my own music just for a fun side project. That project became We Dream of Eden. My goal with WDEO has always been to create "sonic landscapes" with uplifting instrumentals.


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

We Dream of Eden:
I remember my grandfather used to play a game with me where he asked me to pick 5 notes from anywhere on the piano and he would turn it into a song. It was so amazing to me. I think I've been trying to get there ever since... to be unafraid to just create with the things that are in front of me and not over think things.


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?

Marcus Moon – The Moon Represents My Heart (Official Video w/ Lyrics) (Video)

“-Marcus Moon- through a divine, unearthly vocal performance and a lush of gently harmonies , with his new song -The Moon Represents My Heart- deliver us cinematic emotions of a beautiful world that reflects inside us.

-Nagamag.com

The Moon Represents My Heart

An accessible, modern day aria set to the most beautiful words and images. Try to get through the poetic lyrics and haunting music (not to mention the angelic voice of opera singer Ania Hejnar) without having a few of your heart strings pulled. A box of tissues may come in handy for when your eyes get misty.

Just like the Moon inspires us to dream, and guides us through the dark night, so does your heart guide you when you need it the most, if you choose to listen to it.

Marcus Moon composes in the style and instrumentation of classical music, but with an unmistakable influence of modern day life. Deeply inspired by the singer/songwriters that he grew up listening to, there is always a story at the center of his work. Although his music is mostly without words, he paints the most vivid and heartfelt imagery using simple harmonies and very direct melodies, played on classical instruments, such as piano and cello.

His highly anticipated debut album is scheduled for release in December, 2020.
