NAKED TALKS WITH YUMAN:
“When I compose, whether it is a text or pure music, I try to find inspiration from everything around me: light, colors, details of the rooms or simply memories or sensations that come to my mind ... Sometimes I feel I have to give voice to the
music stemming from the inside; so I can transmit what I am unconsciously thinking. Inspiration is a moment and it is such an abstract concept that I do not know if it really exists ... every moment can be turned into a possible sparkle of inspiration.
In my work I do not limit myself and I always try not to establish fixed rules, so as to remain as flexible as possible.
My inclination is towards lyrics that narrate serious issues, often with social implications, but without ever losing a touch of irony I consider to be a fundamental key.
Loneliness is undoubtedly one of the main feelings of the entire album, which could eventually have become my true mood. My songs are a mix of personal stories and inspired ones, ofen told in first person.
I listen to music every day. I think my writing is influenced by my favorite artists, but I managed to draw my own personal path.”
