Muziktology Proust Questionnaire #31 The Neon Syndicate

What is your idea of perfect happiness?

A balance between a clean conscience (giving it your all on projects you’re working on, not being lazy and inconclusive) and fun (doing the things I like to do just for the heck of it).

What is your most marked characteristic?

Wishful thinker.

What do you consider your greatest achievement? What is your greatest fear?

Greatest achievement so far: release my debut album. Greatest fear: letting fear or laziness prevent me from trying to make it as a musician = giving up on my dream without having really given it my all.

Which historical figure do you most identify with?

Not an expert on the matter by any means, but for some reason Saint Benedict came to mind, with his ora et labora philosophy, which in my case could be reinterpreted as believe that results will come and work towards them regardless.

Which living person do you most admire?

My dad.

 Who are your heroes in real life?

Synthwave acts with an unmistakable sound signature who made it.
