What are your top three tips for new or emerging talent to stay afloat and last long term?
I think the most important tip is to always push yourself a bit further, and never settle; then it’s important to learn from your colleagues, mates, bosses and competitors, being humble but confident at the same time. From these prerequisites, the last one: always prove to have an attitude to make decisions, positions, and risks.
What has been one of the toughest music / entertainment related experiences you’ve faced?
Working as a midi-programmer, assistant, and orchestrator for an established composer, you have to go along with the needs and obstinacy of both composer and director, which has been the toughest experience I’ve faced.
How did you get through this experience or deal with it?
Staying focus on my tasks, and making sure that I could face everything about that.
What did you learn from this experience?
That I can face everything about my job.
Which music / entertainment related blog, book or documentary would you recommend to inspire someone, and why?
I think that, apart from any handbook, manual, essay (that remain very important sources, for sure), and apart any blog that pretends to teach you the most intimate secrets and tricks of music with some tutorials and guidelines, the best inspiration is given by the words of the greatest composers themselves, through their letters, private documents in general, and publications. That is, nothing can make your hands shaking and wanting to write down some music, better than reading directly from Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann, Liszt, Debussy, Mahler, Stravinsky (and so on) talking about music, but even more, talking about their life and society: it gives you a strange feeling, thinking that you really understand their ideas, and then a desire starts growing into you, to try to capture their secrets through their notes, and make them yours. You fail, but you’ve learned something anyway.
