An Interview with Stray Theories

We had the privilege of interviewing “Micah. A Musician/Composer. I release most of my music under the name ‘Stray Theories’.” Here’s what else he had to say.

Tell is who you are in 140 characters, twitter style?

Micah. A Musician/Composer. I release most of my music under the name ‘Stray Theories’.

Which part of world are you from and what inspires you about it?

I am from Sydney, Australia, but now I live in the South Island of New Zealand, two very different places

Where I live in New Zealand is quiet, but incredibly beautiful & scenic, always inspiring. Sydney is busy and buzzing with all sorts of life & culture, both places inspire me.

What makes Micah tick?

Music & any form of art/creativity.. new experiences & places, improvisation, live music, family.. they all inspire me and keep me motivated ..

Describe yourself as an producer artist what is your style?

I love to create deep, atmospheric, melodic sounds – especially densely layered soundscapes..
Over time my style/approach has changed alot. My first love has always been more minimal ambient styles of music and in the last few years I have gone back to that. I also love darker experimental music.
