Turquoise Memories – All I Need To Say [mp3]
Where are you now?
TM: In my enclave of serenity
What do you collect?
TM: I absolutely adore crystals, especially fluorite. There is something so futuristic and magical about it that makes you feel that as you hold it you are receiving interdimensional downloads from a matrix of consciousness that far surpasses anything we can comprehend within this reality.
What is your favorite word?
What sound or noise do you love?
TM: The sound of steady rain is so calming and invoking of sweet serenity and I appreciate it to the fullest when I hear it.
What is freedom?
TM: Freedom is to live without regrets, without expectations, without fear. Freedom is non-attachment and experiencing joy simply because you exist
TM: “Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.” -William Shakespeare
TM: The Dharma of Mind Transmission
Where do you go to discover new music?
TM: I’ve lately been finding some amazing music by up and coming chillwave/glo-fi/dreamwave artists on Wavevision’s youtube channel. I also look at music blogs such as Mr Nonsense Music, Another Country Heard, Honey Over Everything, and The New LoFi
Which song do you listen to when you wake up?
TM: Taquwami – Attraction
A song you wish you wrote yourself?
TM: Quite honestly, anything Taquwami creates. I don’t know if it’s because of his unique position of awareness and style since he’s from Japan compared to all the other artists in what I call the emerging dreamtrap genre, but his musical harmonies move me in such a strong way I can’t help but feel blissed out and uplifted no matter how I may be feeling.
A song for relaxing on a beach?
TM: The Pillars of Creation – 1986
What’s your definition of happiness?
TM: Happiness to me is knowing nothing can bring you down. Happiness is being free from all limitations. Happiness is the expression of a liberated soul. It’s like Paramhansa Yogananda once said, “If you want to be sad, no one in the world can make you happy. But if you make up your mind to be happy, no one and nothing on earth can take that happiness from you.”
What do you think about music industry nowadays?
TM: If I had to point to what I thought has evolved faster than anything else on this planet, it would have to be music. I think we are incredibly fortunate to be alive right now because there has never been such a wide variety of music in existence. You won’t find this out by listening to the radio but thanks to the communication medium of the internet, people who would have never had their music hear the light of day can upload their music to a site like Soundcloud and have it go viral on music blogs and social networks, giving way to their incredibly unique soundscapes to permeate the collective consciousness and evolve music faster and faster as more people take inspiration from all the different and unique musical styles they hear. I think it’s very clear, especially when seeing the declining sales in the commercial music industry, independent music labels and artists are more getting quite popular and will continue to gain popularity given how diverse the musical styles are, catering to every kind of taste out there.
What about Creative Commons?
TM: I think Creative Commons is wonderful in that you get to define how your creative works are used. The old way of doing things is that you would have all rights reserved which is just too rigid and oftentimes, especially in this day and age when so much talented work is being created all the time without the primary intent being a capitalistic venture.
Favorite place on earth?
TM: I’ve only been to about a dozen countries so far which is way below my goal of all of them but from all the places I’ve been, I have to say Hawaii.
Where would you wish to wake up tomorrow?
TM: On an island in the Seychelles on the beach looking out at the crystal clear water.
