We got the pleasure of getting to talk to Guillaume de Kadebostany himself about the new music, story behind “Take Me To The Moon” and much more, so check it out below!

For those who may not know who you are give us a little background on yourself.
Hello everyone, my name is Guillaume de Kadebostany I am a songwriter, producer and president of the Republic of Kadebostany.
 
I created this fictive state 10 years ago to promote my art and more specifically to give me a creative canva and develop over time what I call “Kadebostany Pop Music”.
I’ve given more than 500 concerts around the world and I accumulate more than 1 billion views on my videos.
 
 
 • We’re in some unprecedented times, how has quarantine life been treating you in Switzerland ? What are some things that have been keeping you sane? 
 
I would say that in Switzerland we are quite privileged compared to the other countries I have visited. The health system works well here and the support for artists is effective.
I take advantage of the time I have to compose and I officially launched my KADEBOSTANY TV channel. I have a DIY approach and I explain my job and document my adventures. At the same time, I have officially entered the world of film music composition. I’ve always wanted to get into it and I finally found the time to do so.
 
  • How do you stay motivated? What or who inspires you?
I don’t have a plan B in life.
It pushes me to give it my all. At the same time I like this feeling of insecurity. I like to live dangerously! I am in search of the perfect, universal and timeless song. I think that the day I reach the level of the Beach Boys’ song “God Only Knows” I will be able to retreat…
   • Has the process making music in quarantine been any different? If so how?
Honestly not really. I spend a lot of time in my studio. And I still collaborate as much as I used to. Especially via the Internet. Maybe having more time can lead to procrastination. You have to be careful about that. Technically in the studio I’m going back to production techniques from the 1970s. More spontaneity, accepting imperfection in favor of emotion.
 
 • Your new song “Take Me To The Moon” is brilliant, what is the story behind that one? What was it like working with Valeria?
Thank you for the compliment I appreciate. I met Valeria Stoica through a music partner. He advised me to listen to her music. I fell in love with her voice and her world. I invited her to my recording studio in Switzerland and we wrote “TAKE ME TO THE MOON.” It was 3 days before the first Lockdown in Switzerland. Somehow I think you can feel it in the music. There was like a big cloud over the studio that we were trying to get out of.
The idea was also to work on the story of someone who leaves planet earth for a better world.

 

 • The song is a part of your new EP DRAMA Act 2, what can we expect from the new EP compared to DRAMA Act 1? New vibes or similar vibes? 
I chose “TAKE ME TO THE MOON” as the single for Drama Actr 2 because it represents the new artistic direction. Something quite uplifting while remaining melancholic but with a touch of hope.
 
 • What song on either EP was your favorite to write?
There is a title called ‘ANOTHER SUNRISE” which will be released on Drama Act 2. It’s probably my favorite. There’s a singer called Fang The Great and a Ukrainian choir on it. I think it’s direct, emotional and powerful!
 
 • How would you describe your music in three words?
Sophisticated music with mass appeal
 
 • Which song or project of yours are you most proud of?
I am very proud of the music video for “TAKE ME TO THE MOON”! It was entirely shot in Switzerland.
 
 • Is there a moment or memory in your life as a musician that you always want to hold onto? Or a moment that has taught you a lot? 
10 years ago I played in Mexico. I had never felt such fervor before. It turned me around and I felt that the world was vast and that thanks to my music I would be able to experience it.

 

• What music have you been jamming to lately? Favorite artists? 

I love the latest Little Dragon album! Photay, Oneohtrix Point Never, Robag Wruhme etc….
 
 • Lastly, once this whole quarantine is over, what is one thing you can’t wait to go out and do again? 
I am looking forward to going back on tour to perform my new show DRAMA
Check out the stunning video to “Take Me To The Moon” shot entirely in Switzerland!
