We caught up with musician SATRE following the magnificent release of ‘Get Up’. Read the full interview now!
Tell us about yourself?
First of all, I wanted to thank you very much for this interview.
Should I talk about Satre? I can say only wonderful things about Satre. I don’t like talking about me, do we talk about music?
Sounds good, what is your songwriting process?
Speaking of the song’s creative phase, I honestly don’t have a defined process, with a pattern I repeat for each song. In fact, my pattern is not to have a pattern. The process is spontaneous and is different for each composition. I’m more schematic in the post-production phase.
I think that’s fine.
Tell us about your latest release, ‘Get UP’?
‘Get up’ it’s ok, right? Who knows what you will write about ‘Get up’. A new release ‘Treasure’ will be out on January 30th; I hope you will like it.
Some of your songs have been mastered at Abbey Road, what was that process like?
I turned to Abbey Road Studios to master my first songs; I was at the beginning. They are among the best, everyone knows. Now I do everything by myself, even if I still have to and want to improve a lot.
‘Get Up’ is electronic-pop; what draws you to the genre?
Electronic pop is something that can come from working with synthesizers and computers. With the process, the way of producing music has obviously changed, and in my opinion, it will change a lot.
However, I don’t think about the musical genre when composing music, probably in the future, I will probably make songs with different ‘genres’.
I think about it when I have to upload my songs to distribution platforms, and they ask me to enter the genre of my song. First, I laugh, then I despair. It’s really hard to choose the genre of a song from dozens and dozens of genres and sub-genres, and I tell you the truth … I don’t know all those musical genres, and I don’t know how to label all songs with all those combinations. I think it should be simplified.
What message do you think your music conveys to your fans?
That’s just what I would like to know that intrigues me most of all.
What ‘quality’ does Satre’s music transmit? Can you help me understand it? I am very curious to know!
Who are your musical influences?
I don’t know if you’ll believe me, but it’s rock music. I listen to everything that attracts me, from many different musical genres.
Who are your non-musical influences?
Non-musical influences? My life… and what I perceive around me and in the world
What do you think are the biggest obstacles for bands/artists today?
I don’t know, and I don’t want to think about it, don’t think about it… I advise against everyone thinking about it. You have to make music because you feel an irresistible need, this is important, only this.
I have read that even in the past there have been obstacles. Today everything has changed with technology, streaming, etc … but today everyone can try to make music before it wasn’t for everyone.
So there are always negative and positive aspects, or not? I think it is more important for new artists to work to improve. This alone is important.
What are your hopes for the next two years?
Are you talking about hope, dream or illusion? The hope is that they are not the same.
