What do you feel when you listen to “good” music?

Categorizing music as good or bad may be a mistake. Undoubtedly, there is music that is easy to listen to and another that is not so easy on the first listen. That is the music that interests me the most.

Is the timing of a release important?

The music must come out at the moment the artist feels it. That is another inconvenience of the industry.

When you listen to music, do you try to listen intently, or do you have it playing “in the background” as you do something else?


When a sound comes to me, it does not matter if I give it all the attention in the world or if it is in the background while we are doing something else. That is the magic of music.

In my particular case, music is everything. It has been with me in the worst and best moments of my life. It is a beautiful way of living.

Have you ever been musically inspired by a taste, smell, or feeling?

Feeling good has always been and will always be inspiring. If that is caused by a taste or a smell, then let it be. Although maybe the music with the most emotional charge is composed when one doesn’t feel so good. Who knows…

Do you think that music has the ability to play with our emotions?

In my particular case, music is everything. It has been with me in the worst and best moments of my life. I imagine that not everyone thinks like this, but it is a beautiful way of living. ■

ARTIST RELEASE

Esperanza

“Always think. If you dance, better”. The conspicuity of rhythm is a veil to the more introspective underpinnings of Esperanza by MoM, ANuT, and CharlieM, with a certain cerebral momentum hidden within electronic intricacies throughout. The single is a byproduct of being in confinement in 2020, “because precisely we hope that there will be a better world in the future,” as MoM explains. With this ambitiously simple message concerning the fundamental principles of love, sharing, and helping, the music becomes analogous to life itself. Remixes come courtesy of Alvaro Suarez and Aaroon.
