Why this name?
The Serendipitous Cacophonies are what the name says: songs where chance (serendipity) is deeply involved in the creation process. And also ignorance and errors. The result may be cacophonic, but hopefully interesting.
Do you play live?
No. I only play at home, alone.

(From the MySpace site:) "Alone at home, me and my synth, improvising. Discovering true freedom through music creation, only to find out that freedom requires time. I do not have time, so I compromise: I develop songs by serendipity, slowly, without stress. It may take a lifetime. Meanwhile, the songs are incomplete by definition, I will improve them when I can. They are seeds of possible music, in the process of growing, eventually into large trees, branching to reach interesting musical places. Anyone can help, developing a branch in any direction, with total freedom, independently. Mmmm... "Social music", what's that?"
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
2 different questions (internet and mp3).

The music industry will continue to distribute music to consumers, whatever the format. What's new with internet is that now the artists can do the same (deliver music to the audience worldwide). The music industry will find ways to make itself indispendable for most people.
Your influences?
Too many to mention. Examples are (no particular order): Air, Go-Betweens, Sufjan Stevens, Badly Drawn Boy, Beck, Sigur Ros, Divine Comedy, Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Carlos Paredes, Eels, Virginia Astley, R.E.M., Tindersticks, Bjork, Felt, Feelies, Radiohead, Magazine, Wim Mertens, Bill Nelson, Young Marble Giants, Lou Reed, Elliot Smith, Julian Cope, Nick Cave, Bowie, Dead Can Dance, Cocteau Twins, John Cale, etc etc...
Equipment used:
Roland Fantom Fa-76.
Anything else...?
All my songs are eternally unfinished. They should evolve. In the future, I hope to improve them and create different versions, if I find the time.

I encourage everyone to do the same with my material (I give everything: MIDI, SVQ files, etc): I invite everyone to destroy my songs and build something new from the leftovers. Songs are ideas, and ideas should evolve. Besides, it's impossible to find all the good sound combinations for a certain song, there are too many! The field of exploration is so immense, I need help!
