San Diego native, WinterInter, showing us his funky psychadelic vibes as well as a deeper look at the person behind the beats.
Where did you grow up?
Mira Mesa, San Diego
When did you get into music and why?
Ever since I could remember until middle school, my parents were part of a family wedding band. Sitting in the middle between all the band members during practice, I remember how great it felt to hear something come from nothing. The feeling of how musicians can lock into a pocket together is really fascinating about music. Those musical moments are captivating yet also fleeting. Music is a language of its own and you can really talk to each other in that form if you're open to it.
What would you say are some big influences to your creative process?
Life experiences and continuing to be around musically talented friends. We all inspire and push each other to get better at our craft. Also going on adventures to explore new places with my girlfriend inspires me to experience new environments.
How do you take your coffee?
With a good amount of almond or coconut milk creamer. Cause I don't mess with the soy stuff or regular milk.
Walk us through a day in the life of Winter Inter.
I'll wake up and immediately start making coffee. Then shower and eat breakfast with my girlfriend. We talk about new ideas we have or current projects were working on for the house. Afterwards I leave to go work at my trade which is graphic design. At night I come home to eat some dinner before catching up on some more personal music or design projects. Its nice to get to switch between art and music to keep my creativity moving. At the end of the day I wind down and catch some z's.
What are your daily essentials?
On my person: keys, cell phone, wallet.
On my mind: gratitude, curiosity, and positivity.
What's your take on the future of music?
Music is going to show us a wild and crazy journey like it always has. The industry is shifting in ways we are all unknowingly experiencing at the same time. We hear musicians making new sounds we haven't heard of and breaking down boundaries of what music is. Essential I think us as artists and consumers are understanding that we have the power to create our own culture.
Any future projects in the works?
An EP and hopefully a full length. I definitely want to bring forth more musical soundscapes to you guys. Thank you for listening.
