We had the good fortune of connecting with Nacho Larraza and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nacho, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I think it’s in your personality type. It almost doesn’t matter what field you are in, I feel like you can always approach any carrier with artistry and creativity. But in my case I knew I wanted to do music because IT kind of always felt magical to me how a series of sounds can make you feel such strong emotions.

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.
My work consists on making songs and defining the sonic aesthetics of these songs, The main thing I look for in my work is always artistic intention and simplicity.

I believe that the stronger the intention and the simpler/clearer the delivery is the better chances of connecting and evoking emotions on the listener will be.

You can think of it as a group of people (all the elements in a song) telling a story to somebody (the listener). The story can be very entertaining if they coordinate each other the right way, but it can be very chaotic and unclear if they don’t.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
It wouldn’t be very typical of me to have an itinerary ready, but I would take them to the beach, the observatory, we’d drive around and find some spots from GTA5, definitely eat tacos in multiple occasions, potentially Leo’s, I’d make sure they check out the dispensary situation in this city, we’d go to the walk of fame an those typical spots and overall just enjoy the vibe of the city.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My biggest shoutout goes to my family, they’ve always been there for me and have believed in me more than I even did in my self, especially in the beginning. They really helped me stick to a trajectory and trust the process, which is ultimately what keeps me going, as well as a feel of responsibility to try my best give back more than they ever gave me.
