Mike Human, pseudonym of Michele Polonini, is an Italian Techno-ambient and Deep-House producer. His music is characterized by synthetic original sounds, which will be revealed in his second EP, out soon on "Ogopogo Records".
Playing music is a bit like telling a story, especially that of ourselves, we musicians. In today's world music it's very complex to label an artist with a certain genre, and it's increasingly essential to be open to new influences and experiments. How does this affect your set and your productions?
What is relevant in any type of music is to experience emotions. and it is absolutely what stays at the base of all my productions, trying to convey the idea in relation to the conceptual context that is created in my mind. Music is the only medium that can provide the right tools for material re-elaboration of an idea, by definition, immaterial. Being open to new influences, without prejudices, making a synthesis between past and present allows me to create a musical product that is mirrored in reality without filters.
For years, one wonders what the key is for an artist to pervade the soul of the listener with his own music. Is there a secret?
The secret is the music itself. The "superhuman silences" that it creates beyond sight, lead me to wait the moment in which "Something Happens", a spark, a moment that disrupts and at the same time reviews the dramaturgy of the instant music, opening in a dance between harmony and emotion.
How does your musical idea come true? Is it a purely intuitive development or a largely structured one?
Every production is structured in a specific way, obviously after an intuition. An idea is generated by listening a lot of different, but always selected, music. Later, thanks to the technique developed in the early years, the construction of the body of the piece, I begin building the body of the song, leaving a room for the imagination, wrecking the sea that is pervaded by the "unexpected".
