Between 2016 and 2017, Artist Moran DiX made a discovery that brought her to a real change, both stylistically and musical. She gets closer to the Metal genre, thanks to a friend. From there she starts to take the first steps with a personal project that is completely new. She takes out of the drawer the poems she wrote when she was 14, and readapts them at a musical level. In that period the first song was born, Demon Divine.
In October 2017, Moran DiX began a close collaboration with Luca Panebianco of Pink Sound Studio, for the creation of 11 experimental songs. Among the collaborations for this album there’s also Ruben lo Gerfo, also producer and independent musician of sardinian origins. There’s also the collaborations of two very young guys, Riccardo dalla Venezia and Riccardo Salmaso, who composed the instrumental for the song Call Me.
Beginning of the new project, first album: KARMA, Moran DiX says of her music: “The styles of music that inspired me are mostly oriented towards mysterious, dark and romantic. Following this line I’ve realized to be somehow in sintony with artists such as Jillian Banks, Lana del Rey and Florence and The Machine. I’ve always listened to the same artists their music is inspired from, such as Kate Bush,Tori Amos, Björk, Amy Winehouse, Ellie Goulding, The Weeknd, Aaliyah, Lauryn Hill, Fiona Apple, PJ Harvey, Nirvana, as well as more classic ones, such as Bob Dylan,Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra. The genres I would associate my music with are electronic indie, epic and cinematic, gothic and dark, trip hop, dream pop, alternativeR&B, and trap-pop. My music plays around a masquerade of energetic and engaging rhythms which are in contrast with lyrics that talk of deep feelings such as anger, solitude,sensuality and compassion. There are many conflicting points of view in my songs, which express the characteristics of human nature. While having experienced many opposing feelings myself, I’ve always looked for a way to bring them together and reach a form of balance”.
Thank you for taking this interview! How has the New Year been for you so far as an artist?
At the beginning of this year I am concentrating on new projects and new musical compositions. During the pandemic I made material for a new album and I will dedicate myself to making in the recording studio. Also in two months I will hold a concert in Milan where I will sing all my songs.
Can you tell us how you've transformed from the beginning to now as an artist?
The transformation has been many, to get to be a character I had to face many demons. Through suffering and some good friendship DarkAngel I was born.
I started with a completely different genre and now I deal with independent electronic music.
How did you come up with your latest project?
I think there has been a very long journey, made of self-analysis and want to question me. To get to the first album there were many steps, I had to bare my personality and face uncertain and dark moments.
Where are you from originally?
I am of Italian origin, Venetian to be precise, I come from a small village in the province of Venice.
Where do you live now?
I live in my home country in the province of Venice
Do you think where you live impacts how your music is made?
In my case I think yes, I love masks and my music. I mentioned masks many times. I think my city has been my greatest source of inspiration.
What was the inspiration to make music your career?
Mainly two things, the first the expression of myself, the second...see and listen to artists I admire.
How do you want to shape your career?
Simply seeing how things go, no more forcing but doing my best.
Do you work on a tight timeline always or do you go with the flow when it comes to your music?
I always follow the flow, emotions change as frequencies change.
How did your latest title of your music come to be?
The last song I composed was made in full lockdown, and is dedicated to my best friend. The song is called "Only You", has not yet been published, and speaks from the great loneliness. I had him through a computer, and that was the only way to have outside contact with someone. Only you speak about the human need for contact and how important It is to cultivate friendship and authentic relationships.
Is it hard to let go of the music when it is done?
It's impossible for music lovers, It's not important how many followers you have, It's important what you want to tell people.
Do you feel an emotional attachment with your music?
How would you describe your music in one word to someone who hasn't listened to it yet?
A little difficult with a word, I think I could define It "Spiritual".
Where do they go to listen NOW?
