ASL365: Can you tell us how “Orange Sky” set you to the path to where you are now?
OTW: Orange Sky was actually one of the first songs I wrote for the project Oscar & The Wolf. It was the first step that set me to understand the true nature of myself and who I wanted me as a person and in music. It was basically the door that opened me to lots of different doors in the end.
ASL365: We saw collaboration with Dries Van Noten for Paris Fashion Week yes how did that came about?
OTW: He’s a Belgian designer and he’s a fan of mine. So he said that he was doing a new collection about nature with fashion in a luxury way and he said my music was perfect for his collection. And he asked if I could make a song for it and we created an extended version of the song I created, which was originally 3 minutes then we turned it to 11 minutes.
ASL365: Anyone in particular you’d like to collaborate with?
OTW: Oneohtrix Point Never is very good musical project. I’ve never heard anything like it before.
ASL365: Is there anything fans can make you smile when you’re performing?
OTW: Yes when they are dancing really wild and I take it as energy and imitate it!
ASL365: We always here artists giving 101% for each show so what does that mean to you?
OTW: It means after the concert everybody continues with that energy in their own lives.
ASL365: What’s the rest of your plans for the rest of 2019?
OTW: Writing a lot of songs and I have a super new concept of what I want to do for my music and visually as well. I’m in charge of the whole idea around it.
ASL365: Have you been to Asia?
OTW: I’ve been to Shanghai and the crazy thing was we were in Istanbul a few months ago and we crossed the border and I thought oh my god we’re in Asia now.
ASL365: Can you tell us a unique experience at backstage?
Debbie Harris hit on me once at the backstage! She was really giving me the eyes haha.
