Ask @DavidMaximMicic:

How hard is it for musicians in our "genre" to get exposure? I'm 17, writing music inspired by you, plini, sithu aye, chon, etc and one thing I'm worried about is low exposure. Also, how easy is it to get a guesto solo from someone, like plini or sithu. I see them featured on everything

If you have great quality to offer, exposure comes easily. Same goes with guest solo proposals. Got good quality recording, composition, promotion... you'll do just fine. There's more than enough audience on the web for everyone :) So work as hard as you can, put yourself out there and be patient!! Good luck!

Are you happy with the living conditions, culture, healthcare, career opportunities, salaries from your country and city?

Let's see... it's a lovely city, we have a great/long history but culture could do a little work, healthcare is free but kinda meh, most career opportunities for me are on the web anyway so idk, salaries are low but living expenses are as well. It's a nice place to be, but I'd love to see more :)

Do you ever feel a little bit unmotivated when you listen to other great artists? Sometimes, when I listen to your work, I feel a bit sad as I'm quite far from your level of musicality, for example.

Nope, never felt unmotivated after listening to someone who's a better composer/player or a producer etc... I always feel inspired when I hear something that blows my mind.
Just take your time and enjoy yourself doing music. I used to suck at music as well :D I still feel like I suck at many things, but I'm looking at it with a positive attitude and move forward and work a lot to improve :) You should too!! <3

Did you happen to use Jon Hopkins Monsters theme as inspiration for Wrinkle Maze? Do you know his work at all? It sounds crazy similar.

Ahh man it is kind of similar (it happened to be in the same key and both are in lydian mode), but I never heard about him until someone pointed out the similarity to me. So nope, it was a complete accident.. but I happened to start loving his music after I found out about that :D which is kinda awesome! :)

Your thoughts about cubase elements 8? Don't worry, that is not a trap :D

It's an amazing tool for laying down quick ideas, or maybe even recording whole songs. Of course I prefer the PRO version as there are some tools I can't imagine my life without at this point, but for starters I think elements is awesome!! And it gives pretty cool options for upgrade to Artist and Pro over time :)

I want to ask what you think of people using your music in their projects, because every musician seems to have a different opinion on this, and it is very common now for just any music to get used. Do you think of it as a compliment or is it BAD? Does crediting effect your viewpoint on it?

I like to be consulted before someone uses my music in any way. I take my music really personally and emotionally and I don't like to see it appear anywhere just like that. Crediting is a must and if someone is trying to monetize their work using my music, I expect a good slice of that pie.

Hey David, I'm about to go do a 4 year degree in Music. Was your music education worth it? Did you ever have to take on side jobs to support living?

You can easily educate yourself through internet... but attending college and learning from amazing teachers and musicians, hanging out with people, playing music with them, partying, working hard on exams, doing a shitty job to earn some $$ to get your belly full, living on your own, making new friends for life... it's all part of the amazing experience you wouldn't be able to get online... that was at least my case :D So yep, college definitely made me a better person :)

Make some great music and use all of the knowledge you can gather from the internet abut promoting yourself and your music online, and just jump right into it. Work hard and be patient :)

Hi David! Why don't you wear your piercing anymore?

It fell off at some point, and I didn't even bother getting a new one :D I had it since I was 16 years old... It wasn't all that interesting to me anymore. I have a small scar replacing it now... it looks cool :)
