Read the the-big-blind Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


Hey everybody!
I am just a bearded semi blind music passioned and growing up musician as a pianist, maybe drummer too and producer.
I am currently studying jazz and production in the Música Creativa academy here in Madrid and I would love to be able to make a living of my music in the future, but who knows ? The world is an uncertain place.
I won't be able to actually describe what my music sounds like, because I am still looking forward to find the way to take it out of my head and I love exploring almost every genre I know and someones I don't actually know; but I could say it has a super jazzy root and a big electronic background.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


It's actually fun because they have changed a lot in the last few years; starting with Pitbull and Guetta when I was about 12 and becoming more jazzy, classical, electronic and experimental nowadays.
I would say that the man who kicked me out of the pop shit trap, as for so many people, was the one and only Skrillex, that opened my airs for things I would never expect and gave me a super heavy and dubstepy listening period with people like Knife Party and Koan sound. But actually, the first artist who made me decide I wanted to be a musician, was a super underrated little producer from the Netherlands called Froxic, who hit me with the complexity limits of electronic music; and after him, tons of others like Virtual Riot, Savant, Infected Mushroom, Dillon Francis… And much others, who showed me that electronic music could be actually music and encouraged me to start playing the piano.
Other genre that ever called my attention was trap, with artists like Troyboi, Herobust or Dabow, what actually made me fall today into a new developing language inside music, that could be called IDM, but that shouldn't be called in any way, because its just a bunch of all the things that can't be classified. The boy who opened my blindy eyes to all that new frontiers was Noer The Boy, that is currently one of my very favorite producers, and then much others like Tsuruda, Indigo Beck (Drywest), DMVU, Thook or Woolymammoth, who are currently some of the few people making really refreshing things with music and building new ways to explore.
And well; out of my super electronic taste, there is a super jazzy and funky background during all my childhood, with artists like Steely Dan, Pat Metheny, Oscar Peterson or Crosby Stills and Nash, that where always playing in my mom's car or in the old cassette she had in her room. And how not, one of my most close and real masters is my uncle, Santi Vega, who is a musician and he lives from making soundtracks and plays absolutely every instrument you can imagine, and some you won’t; who is my non electronic music discoverer, showing me awesome artists like Brad Mehldau, Herbie Hancock, Snarky Puppy, Terry Gibbs and lots and lots of awesome things, while I show him all the incredible new things happening in the electronic side.
And in definitive, what all those wide opposite artists give me is the ambition of being able to bounce all of them into something that would be everything, because what I miss here is a valance between the beautiful side of music and its weird and crazy side, kind of what Alon Mor do, but no one is making that at all, or at least not what is wringing inside my head. And I think the way to do that is one some artists are starting to walk through, that is establishing a 50% electronic 50% organic content in your music, like Tennyson, Persian Empire Anomalie, Rob Araujo, Haywyre or Blanda dare to do.


What´s new right now?


Well, I am currently relaxed because I have to refine myself before I seriously think about releasing anything, but I've entered the Team Supreme Vol 149 thing and I have in the oven a collab with an interesting audio explorer called Lifegrid, who is actually in the makings of an album.
And taking advantage of the audience, I would complain about a subject that's annoying me a little, which is that Logic, the producing program, is apparently accessible for voiceover users, that is a talking program that aloud me to use a computer without needing to see the screen; but the fact is that in practice, it is terrifyingly bad done and there are lots of functions I am not able to use and that makes my producing teacher and me get absolutely mad trying to figure out alternative ways to do everything. So if you know anything about the subject or you have any kind of solution, feel free to contact me ?
