Music should be like a picture and be able to tell a story.
That is what makes it interesting for me.
A lot of my songs start with a fictitious movie scene in my head and I write the music to it.
Often it's just a glimpse but with a full backstory.
The thing with these movie scenes is also why I name my albums very often after movies.
Although I've never seen these movies.
It just helps me to picture it.
And although movies play such a big role in my music, I'm a film philistine.
Seldom that I watch a movie to the end and most of the time I just rewatch the same over and over again.
I'm not so concerned about the story as much as about the ambience and mood.
And same goes for music.
