#Jojorecommends: Dreams by Spaceman @__Spaceman__ #Dreams #Spaceman #newmusic #singersongwriter

Good morning everyone and happy weekend! Today I’m featuring the amazing Space-man and his album Dream.

Space-man is a very proud Ukrainian singer songwriter who I discovered on twitch. His identity remains a secret as he always wears a helmet on stream and speaks through a voice decoder.

I was lucky enough to get him to answer some questions for me, which you can find below. I did feel a bit daft asking him some of the questions considering all that is happening in the Ukraine at the moment but he has written some great, patriotic answers to my questions which I really like.

If you would like to follow Space-man on twitch or social media you can do by clicking on the links below.

How To Listen:

Space-mans music is available on a variety of streaming platforms as listed below. He makes some really beautiful instrumental rock music which has some fantastic electric guitar in it. Some of the songs are quite heavy but there are also some more melodic ones in the album which I think provides a great contrast. I have included my two favourite songs below.

Interview:

Tell us a little about yourself?

Glory to Ukraine! I’m Space-man
composer and mostly guitarist. Love to create original music in deep space mood and powerful guitar riffs, and electronic & piano sometimes. I don’t speak, only tapa-tapa c:

What first got you into music?

It was a Rammstein (Asche zu Asche) on a TV (music channel) and visiting friend where I was first tried electric guitar.

Who inspired you to make music?

I listened to 2 cassettes and knew all the songs by heart. words and riffs)
I wanted more, and there were no new albums yet and I came up with my own riffs just with the sounds of my mouth) I also sang and came up with new melodies for Rammstein using all the words in German that I learned from Rammstein. That was the point when I started to develop my composing skills. After I got a music program DAW “Nuendo” and start to learning how to record, mix & mastering my music.
Also I love video games and love Silent Hill great compositor Akira Yamaoka who was very inspired me too, later it was a KoЯn and the last was Buckethead

How would you describe the music that you typically create?

One guy say “his music have a sense of something gloomy perhaps post-apocalypse, and in some songs happiness and the struggle for it”

What is your creative process like?

There 3 ways of this…

  1. I sit down and just think. what do i want today
    something gloomy and heavy? or cosmic and sad? or electronic topic?
  2. Just decided to train on the guitar and accidentally came up with a cool riff and decided to record and it’s been half a day and there is a new track)
  3. Also I did
    on streams on tweets orders for channel points. write a riff or chill tune and improvise a bit. and for one stream there can be 2-3 wonderful themes for new tracks which I already sit down at a separate time and finish

Who would you most like to collaborate with?
First of all its a Akira Yamaoka and Buckethead, Rammstein & KoЯn but real cooperation can be with Mike Shinoda he is very creative and one mand band like me, so I think we can create something really cool, and he know me, that`s why its can be possible smile

If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?

Lana Del Rey *smile*

What is one message you would give to your fans?

Сall on NATO to close the skies over Ukraine
because every day we have innocent people dying and I can’t be sure the rocket will hit me tomorrow :cI always play video games at the most difficult level :0

What is the most useless talent you have?

I always play video games at the most difficult level

Do you sing in the shower? What songs?

Nope)

What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?

Artist – drawing or Video making

Where have you performed? What are your favourite and least favourite venues? Do you have any upcoming shows?

I performed mainly in Lviv, where I live. a lot on the street. several times it was solo performances that I also organized. several times at art festivals. corporate parties.

Favourite place its where I organiser.

Least favourite its a corporate party and performance background music in pub

No upcoming shows, war and covid :c
only streams on twitch

How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?

Of course. the internet and music technology (recording) have completely turned the music industry and music business upside down, and I think its good, because artist can build own music business and it will be independent
for me it is very important.

What is your favourite song to perform?
Saturation smile and all new fresh songs what I created c:

Which famous musicians do you admire?

Rammstein are still very good! all albums, that is very rare

What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?

“Don`t give up”

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

Create festival of instrumental music! *Smile*
