Being a self-taught guitarist and drummer, my journey into music production started back in 2014 when I was living in Borneo, Malaysia. I was very lucky that one of my teachers, a music producer himself, showed me how to do it. Traveling around Asia, hearing each place’s tune greatly influenced the vibe of my latest album ‘Silent Scream’ which is a collection of memories from there.

With no lyrics, I focused on the potential of the instruments to speak. For every person, each song brings them to different places, and this is the part I love the most about instrumental music! It is amazing how a feeling got me recording a song that evokes something completely unique for someone else.
Personally, making music is an escape from everyday life where I drift off into a world of mine. I want to share those tunes with others; it’s a form of connecting at another level.
Dream pop bands such as Beach House and Still Corners are inspiring the flow of my next album. I’m preparing many layers of shoegaze guitars and synths. With new songs coming up, I am also planning to set-up a system for live performances and start looking for open-mics to play outside my mini studio.
Besides my music, I also enjoy collaborating with other artists. At the moment I’m in a band, we just started off. There is a lot of hard work required to get in the music industry, as in every other field but I am eager to learn new things and improve what I do.
