Today, The-Further invites you into a musical journey out of the norm. Indeed, we discovered Christoph Pedretti who surprised our ears with “Run into It”.
The 5-track opus offers an unworldly recipe between jazz and experimental elements, and above all, solid arrangements with a cinematic color.
From “Annata” to “Devolution”, the structure is nothing like we’ve heard before and “Run into It” delivers free creativity and honours art in all its glory.
Dive into the experience and get to know Christoph Pedretti better in 5 questions below:
Welcome to our redaction! Tell us who you are and how you started to make music?
I started with music already in my childhood (8 Years old) taking piano lessons.
Until my mid twenties (24-25) I was full into rock and blues, then I started having interest in funk and jazz, which opened a new world!
The interest in electronic music was always there, but never had a great weight until I started putting synths and keys in my music, from there on, I’m completely into it (4 years ago).
To have a better understanding of music harmony, I started also taking jazz bass lessons in 2018, which opened another universe; all this leads to this album.
What inspires you to create and make music?
There is nothing special which inspires me, the everyday life gives me everything I need to write music.
Do you have a specific creative process?
Most of the songs started with a guitar riff idea, which I translate into a chord progression, to have a bass and a harmony.
The bass line is played with my loved Moog Sub37, which gives the fundament of the sound, it gives me the most inspiration.
The harmony is normally played with either rhodes or wurlitzer, I simply love those sounds.
Once bass line, harmony and basic groove (with acoustic drum sounds) is set, I start amplifying the various moods with percussion loops and sounds, to give the last cut to the groove.
The last step is with the Korg Wavestate, which has groove and harmony sounds, to give the final polish.
Can you describe your latest release to our readers?
It is a celebration of my passion to electronic music, trying to put some interesting harmony concepts in it. It was a long process of sound design, which resulted in something that I had in mind.
What do you plan for the future?
I plan to setup the project for a live performance, in duo with a drummer. It ill be an interesting setup, made of synthesizer and loop stations.
