Symphonic Skin interviewed Musician Art Yore, an extremely talented young man with a promising music career. Slightly edited for space and clarification.
Mary: Why did you decide to pursue a musical career?
Art: Growing up, I had an interest in various creative outlets such as drawing, movie making, and of course music. When I was in middle school, I expressed an interest in how music was created using computers. I found out that my uncle made music using a program called FL Studio. He taught me the basics. Digital production just kind of clicked for me and I’ve been making music ever since!
Mary: Who are your biggest influencers?
Art: When I first started, I literally wanted to be Linkin Park. As I taught myself to sing, I modeled everything I did off Chester Bennington’s style. Some of those characteristics are still there if you listen for it. Since then, I’ve flipped around various genres taking inspiration from Daft Punk, Kendrick Lamar, Bring Me The Horizon, Twenty One Pilots, Skrillex, Childish Gambino, and many more.
Mary: Who are your biggest fans, your support team?
Art: It would probably be between my parents, my girlfriend, and like two or three of my friends.
Mary: Is there a special purpose for your music? What would you like for it to accomplish?
Art: First and foremost, music is a creative and emotional outlet for me. At this point it is just what I feel like I’m best at and when I feel like creating something. It is also when I need to work out thoughts or emotions that I’m dealing with, it’s a great place to go. When it comes to packaging and releasing music, though, I think it depends greatly on the project. Sometimes I hope to help people work out issues that we have in common, sometimes I want to inspire people or help them feel strong. Sometimes I just want to entertain them. Either way, my goal is to make the biggest impact that I can.
Mary: What is an interesting fact that people may not know about you?
Art: I’m a huge nerd. Video games and movies, as well as soundtracks from both have probably just as much an impact on my approach to music as other musicians do.
