My name is Vjeran (which in Croatian means faithfull) aka Dobie, I was born in Zagreb, Croatia, and momentarily I am living on the relation Croatia – Ireland due to business purposes, working in IT/marketing industry. I am 47 years old although still 20 in my mind.
I am coming from a family of musicians, my grandma was a piano player, my uncle music professor and the majority of my family members are playing some instruments so that significantly influenced my growing up.
Therefore, I am playing a piano (keyboards) since my childhood and that has always been my way of relaxation as well as the escape from reality.
My sound in 5 words: melodic, powerful, emotional, simple and sound rich.
In my musical expression for me is very important melody that should carry the emotion, as well as a selection of sounds to support the emotion.
I grew up listening to electronic music so I have big list, Jean Michael Jarre, Kraftwerk, Robert Miles, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, Ultravox, Trevor Horn, Paul Oakenfold, Paul van Dyk, Tiesto, DeadMau5, Kirill … but also good old fuga “trancer” Johann Sebastian Bach, minimalists like Terry Riley, Philip Glass …
