HFR: You have just released Cosmic Memories, an 11 track album a bit different from your previous releases. What can you tell us about the making of that album?
H: I love space, I’ve always wanted to experiment chillwave / spacesynth lo-fi glo-fi – a very melodic Episode that mixes synthwave with HOME: Resonance / M83 / Dynatron / Mass effect / Deus Ex Human.
The story of this opus follows the end of my 3rd album Mercenary: The Gynoid Prototype is defeated, the story is over …
HFR: Could you tell us a bit about your “go to” equipment? What do you use when writing a song and which are your favorite instruments?

HFR : Many of our readers produce music too. What is the best advice that you could give them?
H: Love what you produce
Learn from your mistakes, be curious about any Vst, Presets, Samples.
Experience your tests
It is by forging that one becomes a blacksmith ..
Maybe someday I will collaborate with (The Patchbay) for a project.
HFR: What does inspire you within Sci-Fi, Space and Cyberpunk themes?
H: I am for the evolution of the man. I would have preferred to be born in the future, in about 2 478 years.
Technological progress is great
For now, our body is too limited for space.The titan film is a good evolution of the future of humanity.
Maybe that an evolving cyborg will acquire a strength of knowledge, as well as a greater resistance…
In any case I prepare the cyberwave music for that time.
HFR: Will you play your new album live? Do you have other projects?
H: I’m making an announcement for 2019: I’m looking to remix other Small or BIG producers in the Synthwave / Darksynth / Spacesynth registry
I’m looking to expand my Remix collection and to evolve. I’m cool.
Live shows, one day, maybe…
HFR: Last words?
H: Producers, let’s unite!
