Tristan NEU: Interview

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

Inspiration: Space, and other dimensions

Passion: Video games

Strength: The will to escape everyday’s life

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

Who knows…

Why do you do what you do?

To translate dreams and visions I got into real images and dynamic scènes.

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

I strated making artworks for my own musical project Acapulco City Hunters, then for my friends and « colleagues » from Negative Beat, particularly for Luminance (you can check all this in the links), I putted them all on my Tumblr, and some people enjoyed it and started to ask me artworks for their own projects, so I carried on this way.

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

Dylan king and Mantrell Williams at CMV Records, they bringed me almost all my new contacts, especially Unlikely Futures, and they helped me go to something higher than my own circle of friends. This guys are awesome, I really hope they’ll got the attention they deserve with their label and projects!

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

I just want to mutually inspire each other with the people I work with, for now it was always the case, at least for me, and I wouldn’t work with someone from wich I don’t enjoy the work or state of mind.

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

What’s the point in regretting anything?

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

Right now I’m moving to Berlin, to do some concerts and meet new people!

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

It might sound cheesy but you only got one life, don’t waste it by running after pointless things such as money and social approval, especially if the only plan you figured out once you got them is a pre-fabricated dream like « move to an paradisiac island…and come back two weeks later because it’s finally not so awesome ».

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

You didn’t asked me earlier and I’m a bit disappointed about it so here I goes, my personnal favourite dinosaur is by far the Triceratops, he’s a stoner, he only eats grass you know.
