Art & Life with Nick Minutaglio

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nick Minutaglio.

Nick, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I got my start in music production in GarageBand using my mom’s laptop when I was 12. I thought it was a game like Guitar Hero or something, but I ended up having fun using the premade loops and sounds that came bundled with it. After that, it was a slippery slope into using Ableton, and I’ve been learning production and making music in my bedroom ever since.

Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I like to make stuff that helps people escape in some way. Music had that profound effect on me growing up, and I want to be able to give that to other people. It’s psychological medication in a sense. Lately, I’ve been having fun exploring the intersection between real and synthesized instruments, which is why I like to incorporate a lot of guitar and other real-sounding things into my tracks. I think that as music technology progresses, we’re going to see the lines between “real” and “fake” instruments blurred.

How do you think about success, as an artist, and what do quality do you feel is most helpful?
Success to me is when I actually want to listen to my own songs. The whole point of writing music is to make something you would want to listen to, so when you get your own song stuck in your head, I consider that success regardless of how popular it becomes.

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
All of my label releases are on all major DSP’s. Some of my favorite work is in my throwaway soundcloud account where I post all of my WIPs:
