Terence Kissner: Interview


The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Inspiration: Life

Passion: Follow

Strength: Weakness

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

Herbie the love bug. Be careful, I bite!

Why do you do what you do?

Love - Someone wise once said “Do what you love and you’ll never

work a day in your life.” I’m lucky enough to make a living

following my heart.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

As long as I can remember. Not sure I chose it, I think it chose me.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

For writing music there is a huge learning curve just getting to know

your software/hardware, let alone the actual theory behind it. !

Many people have helped me along my journey. Noah Pred, Mike

Shannon and Alixander III; to name but a few, have all been great

sources of information, tips & tricks. I should also mention Francis

Delage at Moog Audio in Toronto for always hooking me up with


Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

My family is my greatest source of inspiration. I am literally an

amalgamation of their talents. !

At least one. He told that I am his sensei. Not sure for what.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Procrastination !

I’ll get back to you.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Been in the studio, a lot. Working on my own solo stuff as well as a collaboration project with Alixander III from Azari & III, oh and just finished up a remix for Room 303. I am also a character in the Future Prophecy comic book series named Gui Guillotine.

Also I'm in the process of starting my own graphic design firm…

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Don’t procrastinate.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

“May you get what you want, and may you want what you get.”
