How was 2018 for you?
Ital Tek: I was very busy in the studio working on lots of different projects. Some things that don’t come naturally to me, but I enjoyed pushing myself out of my comfort zone. It was a year that I learned a lot more about what makes me tic musically speaking. Quite reflective, but also productive.
Personally, getting married. Professionally, I was very proud to get my new album, Bodied, out there. It took a lot of work and was pretty daunting at points, but I’m really pleased with how it turned out. Also getting to work composing music for video games, which has always been a dream of mine.
The erosion of truth so clearly on display in British and American politics (and permeating society/the media). It’s sad that brazen lying has become so common place with no regard for getting caught and no consequence.
Song of the year?
Hard to pick one! There were lots of records I loved this year. The first one that came to mind is “Brean Down” by Beak>. They’re a band I really got into this year. And this is a great track.
What’s your New Year’s resolution?
I think I’d like to get better at playing the piano. I spend so much time in my studio sat in front of the keyboard and it’s the main source of input for all of my composing, yet I’m not a particularly good keyboard player. So I think it wouldn’t hurt to up my game there!
