Aram Zero


Read the Aram Zero Interview below and share it on social media.


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


Hey there ?
My name… well my name is pretty much secret. Some of you may know me as Aram Zero, a weird guy always dressing a mask with leds, who produces pretty badass instrumental music.
Thanks to Epic Music World I hit 2 millions views on youtube last summer, which gave me lot of visibility:

However, behind that mask there's a super normal 26 years old Italian guy, full of fears and super afraid of life, like almost anyone.


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


Well, I've grown with Nightwish. From 15 years old to 18 I just kept listening Nightwish, Sonata Arctica, Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit. Suddenly I moved to dubstep music, with plenty of artists to listen (Skrillex has been the first one, then maany others)
Growing up to 23, I discovered Celldweller and Blue Stahli and then I've been shocked by an idea: what if I merge ALL of these artists into one?
I play guitar since I was 16, so it was only a production thing: I just needed a cool guitar digital sound. So I basically studied a way to get a powerfull sound for two years, and once I got satisfied I was ready. My first track easily hit over 500.000 views on ThePrimeCronus and 100.000 on Epic Music World.


What´s new right now?


Lots of releases/projects coming on. I've always released instrumental tracks, due to my incapacity to sing. From now on though, I'll release tracks with a sung part. And that's all another thing, it complicates a lot the mix process, but gives my tracks a huge plus to the fullness I want to reach as well. Looking forward to see what my fans thinks about it ?

What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?


I lost all my projects (and custom presets) six months ago, I saved the wrong directory before clearing my HD.
Only tip, check everything at least three times before formatting your hd ?

What is your number one tip to improve your music production or songwriting skills?


Keep writing. Keep listening the music you want to write (for example, I want to reach Blue Stahli's sound, I keep listening him) and keep fiddle around with knobs and stuff until you get closer and closer ?
Main tip tho: Don't allow ANYONE to criticize your work. You put everything you have into your projects: knowledge, tricks, passion, fears, sadness, hopes. Whoever tries to say "well, it sounds bad, you're not good enough to become someone" needs to receive back an invitation to get fu… to go away because you have to work ?

What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?


When you get stucked you can do couple of things. First, take a break. Eat something, play a videogame, just do something else.
Then, when you feel ready, just ask yourself: "Why am I writing this song? Do I REALLY like this song?"
If yes, you may like just ONE PART of the song with the fear of not being able to make a deserving outro or drop or chorus. Keep trying until you say "here we go, that's what i was looking for". Remember tho, keep listening the music you take inspiration from. And chill, if you're not gonna write today, you can do it tomorrow (Italian philosophy!)

If the problem is the mix-master thing, you can try to restart the mix from zero. If you still don't reach the sound you want, then UPLOAD IT. I lost years because I didn't feel ready; the truth is that the crowd, the average listener, doesn't care about mix and stuff ? as long as the mix isn't annoying (with peaks around 3000Hz for example) it's fine ?
