The more one listens to music, the more one realizes that it is limitless. More than just limitless in how it sounds, but limitless in how it’s made, and limitless with regards to who can make music. When 15 year old genius Television Sky out of our hometown of San Diego sent us over some of his tracks, we came closer to this realization of the infinitude of music. His music encapsulates the avant garde nature of what many creative producers are making these days. Dreamy, chilled out, non-dance beats made to provoke thought and inspire creativity.
Since he started producing music in 2010, Samuel has gone through multiple alias’ and music phases, ultimately ending up as Television Sky where he feels like his production and music sense has finally been honed into exactly where his heart and soul is most comfortable. Specializing in a new-age view on an ambient, airy, downtempo music style, Television Sky is in our estimation one of the youngest and most talented individuals in the style he creates.
We were so happy upon Television Sky unveiling himself to us that we had to get him on to make one of our Logikasts, which we started to feature musicians who we feel are pushing the forward sound of music. Television Sound’s logikast is an hour trip into a dreamscape of experimental electronic music. We also had him answer a few rapid fire Q&A questions to give you a little more info on who and what this 15 year old we call Television Sky is.
