Hi Raul! What's your background?
I have been a swiss army knife in the culture sector of Helsinki for the most of my adult years, with the general mission to aim for a wider wellbeing and cathartic emotions in my audiences. I started off in music production and landscape and space design, carried on to producing events mostly affiliated with food culture and live music and ended up running a big ass crossover art venue. My business card would be the most disgustingly hipster monster of Producer/Designer.
What will you be working on at Neverthink? What are you most looking forward to?
I am joining the Neverthink team as a curator. I seek to keep a strict, innovation based artistic vision on Visual Music and other art channels. The stuff I push forward needs to be forward thinking, thought provoking or generally something that captures the viewer's focus amidst this tiring stimulation bombing we all are a subject to these days. Well that or I think the content is really, really beautiful.
I am most looking forward to waking up to another work day and finding all this stuff from around the globe. Every day I find new artists to follow and I hope you'll get to rustle up your senses too. The creativity of people keeps on surprising me and I'm loving it.
What’s your passion outside of work?
My lifelong passions are writing, producing and performing music alongside witnessing the happiness and strong emotions of people. I study and fiddle with new sounds on my computer or in my studio daily, and the endless pursuit to challenge the groove between me and my drummer is addictive af. I also grew up in the golden age of Nintendo so I am a total Pokémon, Final Fantasy, Blizzard and From Software junkie on my free time.
