“As a boy raised in the 80’s generation, I have known a handful of outstanding musicians. He had Vangelis and his electro-orchestra, Kitaro with the Silk Road project, Jean Michel Jarre’s whimsical futuristic ideas, and Yanni’s breathtaking romantic melodies. These were my favorite musicians. I also listened to traditional, classical, pop, movie and even commercial music that were written, existed and accessible thanks to my insatiability with music. At my age, I was like a sponge, absorbing music from the environment. I think all this determined my music style and identity today.

The artist describes the process of creating the work and how his works were born as follows:

“I write whatever comes to my mind, I don’t target a specific genre. Music comes first as a melody and if the melody decides to be classical, I will follow its decision. You must let it go its own way, do not try to change your destiny by making an arrangement of your choice. “
