What inspired you to make music?
Volodymyr Kotliarov Since I remember myself, my father shows me classical music. He turned on the recordings of his favorite classical pieces. When I was 5, I started studying piano at music school. At the age of seven, I started playing the cello. Music has been with me since early childhood, so I can’t name any specific reason why I became a musician. I just have good parents 🙂
How would you describe your music?
Vodolymyr: We have two composers in the group. That’s why ROCKOKO music is different. You can see for yourself if you listen to our album. I love writing rock ballads and powerful explosive compositions. I’ve always been inspired by bands like Metallica, Apocalyptica, Within Temptation, and Nightwish. I like the eclecticism of classics and metal. That sounds very majestic.
What are your future plans? Do you have future releases?
Vodolymyr: This year we plan to record a new album and finish the music video trilogy. We also record our instruments in a song by the Norwegian band Harmony Drive. Maybe it will be an EP or a full-fledged album – we’ll see.
We also plan to perform at several music festivals in Ukraine in the summer.
