I am all about the emotion that comes in a melody and chords which sparks my creativity to execute the final product.
I like to work on a project that has a base which needs someone to make the full thing happen. I've been producing music for over 4 years and started studying music production in Berlin lately. I have this special sense for emotions that special chords and melodies trigger within me. I start to have visions which help place the song in a direction that makes sense for all parties.
