Matthew Avery Interview on Nagamag


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.


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?

Matthew Avery:
Caravels "Hanging Off"


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

Matthew Avery:
Nil Ciuró "Inner"
