Welcome – Thanks for sharing your music with us! How has 2020 been for you?
Hello! Thank you so much for the interview. It’s been a strange and life altering year trying to stay safe and in good spirits. I hope everyone is figuring it all out and trying to make the best out of it.
Share with us the process of creating ”Roentgen.” What does this release mean to you?
My newest release is another journey into and back from the unknown. When making a song, I enjoy trying to create a sonic character with a unique energy and getting it sounding the best I can then sharing it with others throught out the galaxy.
What inspired you to create your artist name Sonic Radiation?
Music and sci-fi always excited me as a youngster. When I got older, I discovered electronic music and wanted to make some too. Sonic Radiation was a moniker I thought fitted my style. Sonic Radiation aspires to express hope, energy and reverence for Electronic Music and life.
How did your journey as Sonic Radiation begin and what are the biggest lessons you’ve learned since then?
When I first heard electronic music in college, I was blown away! It was so different and unique from anything I’d heard before. I was hooked and had to make my own. It took a longtime and I’m thrilled to be able to now.
How would you describe your music to a first time listener?
I think all my songs try to grab you by the ear. I hope each one takes you on a different journey through time and space. Each track really reflects my skill level and life at the time. I release each song when it’s finished and I hope over time that will be interesting.
What were the biggest initial hurdles to pursuing your musical dreams and how did you overcome them?
I’m a longtime Spinal Cord Injury sufferer and had to work hard to gain back the ability to live and follow my lifelong dream of creating Electronic Music. Continuing to create Electronic Music is important therapy for my recovery and future.
With a main focus on EDM, Electronic, Progressive House, Space Age EDM, which artists have influenced you through your musical journey?
I’m a huge fan of Star Wars and sci-fi movies. Also, great bands like Rush, Depeche Mode and many others.
What is your creative process when creating new music?
My thinking is always to try and make a sound that I like. After I got it the best I can, I can’t wait to share it with hopes that others will enjoy it in whatever way they like to listen to music and maybe, be an escape for them.
What would you say has been the single most influential factor in your success?
I’m always thinking about, learning and working on trying to make the best sounds and visuals I can. Music is a really big topic with many different areas to learn about and include in my releases. I’m really fascinated and drawn to the world of music as a creator and a fan.
Thank you for speaking with us! Is there anything else you would like to add?
Thanks again for the great interview. I really enjoyed it! My mind, body and soul are ichin’ to start my next track. Each one takes a long time so I better get to it. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy “Roentgen” in your Space!
