Alexander Parij (SingAndStudy) – Interview (Part 2)

by Emilio Pérez Miguel on April 30, 2010

Here you have the final part of my interview with Alexander Parij from SingAndStudy. You can read the first part here, of course.



Q:When did you become interested in music? What was the first album or single you ever purchased?

A: I did not have a lot of pocket money to buy CDs, so I mainly listened to the radio.
The first album I purchased was the soundtrack of Spawn when I was teenager.

Q:Are you in a band yourself, or have you been in a band in the past? Is there a clip on YouTube or elsewhere we could watch?

A:Not really.

Q:Musical likes and dislikes? Favorite artists?

A: My music tastes change a lot. I think it progressed from heavy metal to psy-trance and then to something more mellow. Right now I listen a lot to Eduard Artemyev (one of the founders of Soviet electronic music), Pink Floyd and Jimmy Hendrix.

Q:If you had to name the song that moves you the most, what would it be? Can you pinpoint the reason why?

A:  Epitaph / King Crimson. It’s just beautiful with no explanation :).

Q: Is there a song that – to you – captures the spirit of your startup and what you have set out to do? What would it be?

A: Well it’s not a song but a track from a movie called “Stalker” by Tarkovsky. The  soundtrack was composed by Artemyev and the name of the track is “They go long”.
It’s a long road ahead of me…
