Moonove (Sploder / electronic musician) AMA!
« on: August 25, 2016, 10:19 AM »
I was able to find moonove on youtube and he agreed to doing an ama. He has the songs London, La Bel Wazoo, She's From Heaven and The Awakening in the featured section of sploder's game creators. He has a total of 20 songs on the site. The music playing in the background is his work.
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/kWHi0ETGQvw&amp;=en_US&amp;autoplay=1&amp;amp;version=3&amp;amp;rel=0&quot;" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/kWHi0ETGQvw&amp;=en_US&amp;autoplay=1&amp;amp;version=3&amp;amp;rel=0&quot;</a>

1.) When did you start making music, and what computer/program did you use?

I started making music on computers in 1985. I was using somes “sid” editors on Atari ST. I later used Protracker on Atari STE to use real samples. (Sid is the sounds that are generated by the sound chip of the computer. It’s not samples. Just basic waves)


2.) what made you want to make music?(asked by gaminator)

At the very beginning i was making music just for fun. And like any "kid" of this age i was dreaming of making videogames. Later in the 90's i joined a few Demoscene groups (On Atari). I then became officially musician.


3.)What artists do you like/are inspired by? (asked by eldarado)

I’m really fond of Jazz music but also a lot of electronic.  At the moment, my favorite artists are Arovane, Autechre, Plaid, Depeche mode, The ORB, Atjazz (he comes from the demoscene too)…


4.)What music genres do you listen to?(asked by gaminator)

I usually listen to some ambient and/or electronic music. At the moment I listen to the “monument” game soundtrack. I like music which makes me feel I’m somewhere else.


5.)How did your music end up on sploder?

To be honest. I don’t know. I guess someone found one of my .mod on internet or paid a visit to my website (on which all my mods are available). And one day I was searching for “moonove” on Google and found some of my tunes on Sploder… That’s it ☺


6.)Have you played any sploder games featuring your music? If so, what was your favorite game?

I’m afraid, not so much. I think I’ve tried some “Mario-like” games. I also have a PS4. I play a lot to Destiny. I like games in which you have to discover other worlds.


7.)What kind of music do you make nowadays, and what do you consider to be your best work?

I mainly make ambient electronic music.Feel free to have a look at my Youtube Channel : https://www.youtube.com/user/moonov3 or visit my website www.moonove.com


8.)Where are you from, and what's it like there?

I’m from Paris, France. It’s quite cool living here and musically there are so many opportunities here to discover new styles of musics.


9.)Favorite hobby?

Photography : www.instagram.com/moonove


10.)Any tips for upcoming artists? There are a few amateur artists on sploder who frequently post about their soundcloud, and they might be interested in getting a few pointers from a pro.

Well try to be honest with you. Just make what you like to do and do not try to imitate other artists. Try to find your own style. Do not hesitate to “ask” to musicians around you. Softwares are so powerful now that you may miss some really interesting features. You also need to find the right software. I still know musicians that are using “fastracker” and some others on “ableton live”. Finding the right tool will help you to be more efficient.


11.)Anything else you would like to say about sploder and your old music?

Thank you very much for using my music. It’s really a great pleasure to hear my stuff in video games. Even if already made music for the videogame industry, it’s still very exciting for me.  Keep the “sploder” community alive. It’s a great initiative and people are still interested in playing simple games !!

It is always refreshing to hear the perspective of another artist. It's pretty cool that you got the chance to talk with him and get well thought out answers.

Not gonna lie, I don't intentionally do this, but I think I usually end up using more of his music in my games than any other artists on sploder.

I noticed that in your game rainy nights, you should link it to him and he might play it ;)

I would love to do an ama with all of them, but some of the artists have disappeared from the internet altogether. I might be able to contact vim on his SoundCloud.

Moonove's tracks are great and I like using them, they're ambient and the arrangement is wonderful, really suiting for calm movies and puzzle games.

usually artists would upload their stuff to mod/amiga archives, and those websites let you download them and use them for free

Whoa!

This reminds me of the time a guy named Eric Matyas joined the forum and talked with Geoff about his music getting on Sploder.
