Featured Artist interview: Jaloes (E47)

About: Jaloes

"Jaloes is a spanish composer of instrumental minimalist music. His songs, made with piano and computers, are described as relaxing, melodic, rhythmic and repetitive. Some of his musical influences come from the American minimalist music, La Monte Young, Steve Reich, Terry Riley, Phlip Glass, and later musicians who made an approach to this style, like Wim Mertens, Michael Nyman, John Adams and Yann Tiersen."

1). How would you spend a million dollars if you had it?
First I would pay off the mortgage. Then I would buy some new gear and maybe a good grand piano, and finally I would take a long vacation with my family.

2). What was the craziest thing to happen in your life?
To start making music with my computer just for fun, and later on producing and releasing my debut album, “Weather”.

3). What kind of message is in your music? Why or for what reason do you write music?
I write music about the world, my life and everything around me. I find many inspiring things in nature. I would like to think that people find beauty in my music. I write for pleasure, my own and that of everyone else.

4). What would you do if the world was going to end in 3 hours?
Join my family and see the show.

5). If you were a professional sportsman, what sport would you play?
Alpine skiing, or maybe chess.
