Guitarist/songwriter who writes instrumental rock music inspired by video game battle themes and epic movie scores.
We hear a lot of game in your compositions. Are you recreating similar feels for audience who are non-gamers?
Kinda, but it depends on the tune. For the faster ones, I’d like the audience to feel a surge of energy and power like they could do anything they want in the world. The slower tunes are there for anyone having a bad day I hope they makes them feel better and know that they’re not alone. For the more epic and cinematic tunes, I’d like to transport the audience into a world of their fantasy and imagination. But to sum it up I would just like the people checking out my music to enjoy themselves and forget their struggles for a moment.
Cool. How do you see yourself progressing as a musician?
Probably playing jazz standards at a hotel lobby.
Fav thing about Singapore?
All my favourite people live here!
And a quote that sums up your music philosophy?
"Art is healing and music is medicine." - Yvette Young
