POINT OF VIEW INTERVIEW #14
PRODUCER: POLY PINES
Poly Pines is taking over the 14th Point of View Interview this week and he has great thoughts to share. Where he gets his inspiration and creativity to create his inspiring music derives from various places like films and other musicians. Poly Pines creates a mixture of a singer-songwriter style and electronic elements in his music. One track that gives an example of this is “Passion,” where he has an acoustic sound developed as well as spoken audio clips that perform as lyrics for the song. A couple of my favorites would be "i ____ you" and “Remember?” Both of these powerful tracks resemble Poly Pines’ style extremely well and blows your mind with the emotion he can portray in a single song. Check out the interview I had with Poly Pines below to get to know his inspirations and direction he is headed towards!

Question 1: What got you into making music?
A lot of different people inspire me to create music. From the songs of people like Flatsound, Ramzoid, Louis the Child, and Julia Brown, and films from directors such as Quentin Tarantino, Richard Ayoade, and Christopher Nolan, they all seem to be able to capture a sense of creating their own world within their work and I find that truly inspiring and it's exactly what I try to do with my music.
Question 2: What people intrigue you or inspire you to pursue music?
A lot of different people inspire me to create music. From the songs from people like flatsound, Ramzoid, Louis the Child, and Julia Brown, and films from directors such as Quentin Tarantino, Richard Ayoade, and Christopher Nolan. They all seem to be able to capture a sense of creating their own world within their work and I find that truly inspiring and it's exactly what I try to do with my music.
Question 3: How would you define your style of music?
My music has been given a lot of different names but I would brand it as being emo-electronic. A lot of my music is just how I feel or is a portrayal of an idea or experience I've had so I just write what I'm feeling, and to me it seems to hold a lot of emotional value to it.
Question 4: What influences your style of work?
So many things influence my style of work, but I think the main thing is my mood or feeling at the time of writing the track. I tend to keep all my feelings bottled up and writing music helps me to express those feelings. I think this is why I would give my music the brand of emo-electronic as well. My music is just my life, feelings, and ideas.
Question 5: What is your favorite track that you have produced so far?
My favorite track is definitely "i ____ you." just because it helped me express the feelings I had bottled up, as well as writing two of my favorite styles of music which is like lo-fi sad acoustic music and electronic music. It felt great to finally be able to blend those two styles seamlessly with this track as well as write and record my own vocals and I am very proud of it.
Question 6: How far do you plan to take your music, any plans? Who would you like to work with in the future?
Not really any plans just want to keep doing my thing and growing my audience. One goal I have set is to play at least one show this year so we'll see how that goes. As far as dream collaborations go I think it would either be Flatsound or San Holo.
