What is your favorite daily activity, some specific time of the day?
I would have to say the simplest thing that I do on a daily basis is… funny enough… showering and using a nice bar soap! It truly is my favourite daily activity. It’s almost as if it’s a very personal meditation. Something that brings me directly into the current and present moment. There is something so wonderful about bar soap that I’ve obsessed over for years now.
What is your music background that you love? Can you share with us some artist that you recommended?
I’ve always been a big fan of music. My mom was always listening to music as I was young so it was always around. I remember in high school being drawn to various psychedelic bands and sounds… things like Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin etc. Soon after I found about Radiohead – mostly through the track idioteque – a friend showed it to me in grade 11 design class and I remember listening to it on repeat, completely obsessing over the sound and characteristics. Shortly after college I stumbled my way into the world of electronic music, starting to play around with DJ’ing and producing my own sounds. If I was to make a short list of some foundational songs / artists from early stages it would look as follows:
Do you have an specific methodology or process for your work, music or life?
I suppose I tend to recycle quite a bit – I like to build things up and then render them and then repeat the process over and over, further refining something and giving it life through texture and other collected energies through out its life cycle. Whether I’m working on something more graphic related or music I sort of have a similar process. Build things up → squish them together → pull it apart → repeat.
What is for you a perfect day?
