Blufeld (Five Questions with...) Exclusive Interview
David Hearn aka Blufeld is a leading producer of Progressive Trance at its best. The guest has been associated with the legendary Bonzai label more than once, where he released his songs and albums. A very talented artist who breaks many barriers in trance music. David took the time to answer a few questions. I invite you to an interview conducted exclusively for Visions Of Trance.
1. What are your goals in producing trance music?
I simply strive to bring as much of my inner character out, whilst finding new and innovative ways to convey the messages I want to bring.
It's so important that I give the listener a way to elevate their heart and minds into a place where they feel both immersed & inspired with the sound I produce.
2. Who was your inspiration to start producing trance music?
I was inspired by so many different artists, as I'm sure a lot of producers are. I have a major lean towards the new romantic/80's vibe as this was drenched full of those mysterious and melodic synth vibes and inspiring drum rhythms and patterns. I was listening to all those early euro dance tracks, and also the classic trance tracks of the early 00's. So this shaped me also into wanting to produce.
3. Which song are you most proud of and why?
I'm proud of all my work tbh, as its all born from me for one reason or another. Everything I do has a story or a reason for its existence.
4. What inspires you to create trance music?
The love and passion of the genre is the driving force, as most will agree in life that if you are enriched with passion in your heart for something, it becomes a compulsory thing you NEED to do.
5. What hardware and software do you use to create trance music?
I use cubase to sequence and reason for instruments, as well as a few fav plug ins. I also love using the trustee Minilogue XD for those vibey retro electronic textures and the JU-06A boutique synth for the 80s feel. The access virus TI also is a given for big sounding classic pads etc.
I'm a believer that you can make so much vibe with simple approaches as these have such impact. Less is so much more, the trick is layering and fusions of sound. I say no more. 👍
Thanks very much Krzy Chu for asking me to participate in your Visions of Trance' group, and thanks to all who continue to support my style of music and sound. Its very much appreciated.
