mikebo works as a EDM Producer and Live-Musician. “Painting with sounds” is the name that the German Musician gave to his audio-visual performance, which combines synthesizer-based compositions with video-art-work.
According to mikebo, the creation of musical structures can well be compared with the act of painting or sculpting. The experimentation with various sounds inspired mikebo and let to the production of his songs. As a result, melodies and harmonic structures can be considered to be the direct outcome of the inspiration he got by discovering new interesting sounds and effects.
Given that, it is clear why some sounds could be perceived as soundtracks: with the power of imagination, you easily will be able to discover the pictures which belong to the musical “movie.”
How would you describe your musical style?
… it´s mikebo 😉. For me, I like to stick to the definition “Painting with sounds”. I use synthesizer comparable to the style of Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Wendy Carlos, Jean Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk, Vangelis, Kitaro and all the other electronic heroes. This is the kind of electronic sounds which inspired me since my youth.
