This is Part 2 of the interview with Marco from Filtersage. If you haven’t already done so, read Part 1 here.
MUSIC & YOU
When did you become interested in music? What was the first album or single you ever purchased?
I became more interested in music when I discovered stuff that was more intense than what was in the charts. I think that the first experience in that sense was listening to Joy Division’s ‘Unknown Pleasures’.
Are you in a band yourself, or have you been in a band in the past? Is there a file on YouTube or elsewhere we could watch?
I’ve never been in a band, seriously at least.
Musical likes and dislikes? Favorite artists?
Too many to mention. But sure I can say that recently I’ve been listening to a lot of stuff that has a lot of electronics in it.
If you had to name the song that moves you the most, what would it be? Can you pinpoint the reason why?
Right now, I feel a lot of empathy for ‘Chosen Time’, an old New Order track, for the simple reason that it’s a great song and we picked its name for our company [Chosen Time is the company that owns Filtersage – you can check it out here: www.chosentime.com].
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?
Thank you very much for your time, Marco.
