|How did you discover your creative territory? How would you describe it?
It's a territory where we answer to no one but ourselves and push ourselves harder each time we do something. We throw out material that doesn't quite make the grade and are our own harshest critics. Our sound is our own and recognizable throughout the various moods we've travelled through and styles we've drawn upon or been inspired by.
My brothers and sister helped me discover. Two of my favourite films are The Wizard of Oz and Edward Scissorhands and they showed me these. The Winkie chart of the former and the opening credits of the latter made me interested in music. Then my siblings played me many many bands, such as Radiohead, Massive Attack, Tom Waits, The Cure and The Smiths. They introduced me to DJ Shadow and Ennio Morricone when I was 15 and I decided I wanted to create music that sounds like all the music I enjoy. I used to sit with my older brother in his bedroom and play Ennio Morricone songs - him on the guitar, me on the recorder. Also when I was little I used to dance to live traditional Irish Music - sometimes in pubs in Ireland and some in rough arse pubs in Tooting South London and I loved the live music. All these experiences have shaped me today.

I draw from life experiences, and my lifestyle.
its a gift i study on everyday
I listened. I try to be as creative and imaginative as possible... I try to be open to as much as possible. I try to be limited only by my own imagination!
I discovered it when my name started spreading in the streets
Interesting question... Again, ongoing. I discovered singing as a toddler, I discovered songwriting as a teen, I discovered soundscape (auralorama) creation as a 40-year-old. Each of them was a step that presented itself and that I was lucky enough to recognise and embrace.
Playing in a band is a daily disvovery.
Again, if one fulfils the conditions necessary to do what one does properly, then doors open into new areas
I don't understand the question.
It widens with every next step I make. First I wrote only songs, but now I write music also for theatre, movies, advertisements, choir etc.
I record all my music at home.
I am still trying to find my "click" or clit till this day! I don't think I can be satisfied with what I create cause I am always trying to discover a new sound.
I feel now a-bit at ease somewhat with my koto and flute collaborations from "Hanatemari" along with my own distortion and noise, to feel it almost kind of a branded sound?!
But not like it's anything that's never been done before!? I think its hard too hold your own "territory" or sound. Cause music is just recycled anyway...
i'm just let it flow
My creative territory is my mind and I'd describe it as a safe place just when I'm joking.
