Meet Hugo, a 17-year-old Spotify curator from Australia.
“I’m a very tall (200cm) university engineering student, who enjoys different kinds of music!”
What is the soundtrack to your life?
Random Access Memories by Daft Punk. Each song is different from the last, and I think of it as representing our ever-changing lives.
What is the most annoying song in the world?
I'm not a fan of songs which use a lot of autotune. I find that those types of songs would probably sound better if they had just spoken the lyrics.
What’s more important to you? Music or lyrics? Why?
Definitely music. If an artist can convey the emotions they want (eg. love, anger, etc.) through melodies and harmonies, I find their talent so much better than artists who just blatantly express their emotions through lyrics.
Daft Punk, with a close second going to Olafur Arnalds.
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be? (Dead or alive)
Freddie Mercury. I'd want to know where he got all his revolutionary musical ideas from.
I've actually never been to a proper music concert which hasn't been at school or in church. I definitely want to see Daft Punk or Olafur Arnalds on stage at least once.
