We had the good fortune of connecting with Jon Ososki and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jon, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor for me has been doing one thing really well and focusing on developing that skill. Instead of stretching myself too thin and trying to do everything in my business, I’ve focused on doing what I’m really good at well.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m an electronic music artist creating downtempo and cinematic instrumental electronic music that I write, create, produce and record myself and with other creative collaborators. I started out in the music industry mainly playing progressive rock and metal music, and attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. After taking some time off from music entirely I started composing instrumental music cues and underscore, and from there started to write and create more for myself. I ended up signing to an independent record label and started releasing my own music as an artist. Currently I’m a recording artist on Filter Label writing, creating, producing, and collaborating with other artists, creatives, and musicians.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Main St in Santa Monica – Ocean Park. Walk the beach from Ocean Park Santa Monica to Venice. A movie in Westwood Village. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My record label Filter Label run by Emil Hadji Panzov. All the artists, musicians, and creatives I’ve collaborated with including fellow composers and musicians Marika Takeuchi, Mike Weberman, Spaces Between, Vince B, and pianist Tania Stavreva. Tae Gyun Kim (Juno Ray) for being my go to mixing engineer. And to fellow musician Paul Avgerinos for always being encouraging, inspiring, and supportive. And most importantly, all my listeners who support my music.
