Sequential In The Spotlight Interview with DAVE JULIAN

You can find the interview on Sequential's website here.

"Dave Julian bought his first synthesizer, a Yamaha CS-5, in March, 1980, one week before his seventeenth birthday. Inspired by the sounds he was hearing from synthesizers and keyboards on the records that he was buying and listening to at the time, his early influences came from Gary Numan, Depeche Mode, Human League, Japan, OMD, Simple Minds, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Wally Badarou, Bernie Worrell, and Herbie Hancock.

Having never undertaken musical training, his time spent playing keyboards in bands allowed him to learn composition, structure, development of melodies, and the use of chord shape variations and scales. Though unsigned, he did benefit greatly from the countless live performances, playing live on BBC radio, and many studio recording sessions.

In 1992, he bought his first sequencer and began a new journey, focusing his passion toward the creation and performance of electronic music. This is the path that brought him to where he is now. This year, he has performed his material live at various venues in the UK.

We chatted with Dave about how he uses Sequential instruments in his music."
