How would you describe what you do?
Trying to communicate thoughts and feelings.

Recently I discovered videos are fun to make so that is something I wish to explore further, but to answer concretely, it’s a lot of music projects.

I don’t believe in the future as a given.
Latest déjà vu?
My entire life feels like I have been (t)here done that.
Any new habits?
The latest habit I developed is eating a carrot and drinking ginger tea almost daily.
What’s your daily routine like?
This is something I can’t say I have at all, but I do get up after having slept ;p

Waking up as a three-year-old in the backseat while feeling the trees passing my face and casting their shadows upon us as the car drove into Paris, while there was a cassette playing ‘Je t'aime, moi non plus’.
What advice would you give your younger/older self?
Be thankful for what you have; it can always get worse.
Cutest desire you have?
The belief that connection can be found through media consumption.
Love of your life?
Creation and others that I have never met, but those who impacted me greatly; Abbas Kiarostami, Michelangelo Antonioni, Richard Linklater, Hal Hartley, Lav Diaz, Rad Hourani, Liedewij Edelkoort, Micha Wertheim, Daniël Arends, Louis Székely, Dirk De Wachter, Peter De Graef, Jonah Hill, Ricky Gervais, Funchurch, Paolo Sorrentino and Harmony Korine.
Biggest personal change since last year?
Feeling less restricted and more confident in what I want.
How did last year change your perspective?
The situation in the world is so absurd that it makes me feel better, a bit like when you watch 90 Day Fiance (a reality tv show) and you feel better about yourself afterwards.
Are you a nostalgic person?
Quite, but nonetheless, I try to apply the nostalgia in the present instead of being stuck longing for something that is gone. I try to use this longing as inspiration for something that is present. Sometimes I am nostalgic for things that haven’t happened yet, but on another level, they did happen and I forgot about it.
