I played cello in my high school orchestra.
The way to compose for me is to have lots of time.
It is probably very necessary to present your ego at some point.
When I started to pick up the bass, it was purely by random chance.
I am a classical music lover - not necessarily the contemporary stuff, but the old stuff.
It's better to finish at the peak or soon after it, than to wait until the audience notices a decline.
At the time, I didn't know that bass would not be enough for me. I'm not a bass player because bass is always a background instrument even to this very day.
I like to create the music I hear in my interior. As a conductor, you have the ability to squeeze the sounds and interpretation you asked for from 50 to 80 people.
I realized pretty soon that I have to do more than just play bass in the background way. So, I developed a kind of playing which only a handful of musicians accepted.
As a result, I had to get my own playground which was my band Colours. This band lasted for about eight years and then the air was out of it and it was time to finish.
