It all starts from the melody, which normally I dream of it or I find when I am in a state of trance in my creation room. Yes, I dream most of my melodies and I consider them like gifts coming from another dimension. Also, in my creation room I use the power of hypnosis to go in trance and find inspirations/
In this room I have all my basic instruments, like electric and acoustic bass and guitars, synth, electronic drums, a Tascam digital multitrack but the most important instrument is my mind, where I can see and hear the sounds of every instrument.
My inspiration room and minibar
Driving is another source of musical inspiration and I find the melodies coming to me.
Then I go to play the ideas live on my stage. I am not a professional musician but I can play a little bit of everything, enough to express my ideas.
Then the idea goes to one of my collaborator's arrangers who help me shape it as a final song, like the great Simone Sello who I worked for over 20 years together.
And finally, Mr Brian Reeves completes the product with the final mix and mastering.
