What inspired you to first start making music? And how did you come to be in your current incarnation? Or if you prefer, a brief bio aboutyou.
What inspires me to make music, is anything but original, is the need to express my thoughts about myself, the society and how we relate each other.
Provide us with some info about your latest release…
‘I Am Here’ is a song about someone that needs to be listened to, someone that feels that the world wants him to be obedient and shut him up. I don’t think that´s my best lyric but I feel it is perfect for the music, which builds more and more layers through the song.
Which ones would you consider your main influences both music-wise & non-music-wise?
My biggest influence is Trent Reznor, I love how he mixes genres and acoustic instruments with electronics sounds in order to grant more meaning to the lyrics. Also I am a huge fan of Bach, Jeff Buckley and Elliott Smith. I’m also, very influenced by literature, I love argentinians writers such as Jorge Luis Borges and Adolfo Bioy Casares, they gave me the weapons to approach my lyrics.
In what way does your sound differ from the rest genre-related artists/bands and why should we listen to your music? In other words, how would you describe your sound?
The Project is characterized by the electronic sounds and plenty of acoustic instruments; it has also strange metrics and structures. The lyrics are introspective, nihilists and anti-establishment (OTRA OPCION. …and with social content.)

Do you prefer studio or performing live and why?
I like to play live since the sound is more organic and more honest. It is more linked to how I perceive music.
Is there any funny-unique story you would like to share with us, always in relation to your music ‘career’?
In 2019 I recorded three songs with the producer Lucas Martí, once I finished them I created a new band and we started practicing those songs, we were rehearsing for almost a year, and when we were about to play live in 2020 for the first time, the quarantine started and we couldn´t play, which led DQC to stay as a soloist project until today.
Which track of your own would you point out as the most unique and why?
“No Faltes´´ is a song that I composed while I was recording it, I never knew how it was going to end until I ended it, I think that´s the song I had with more unique ideas.
Would you like to share with our readers your future plans?
In September I´ll release a record tribute to Lucas Martí in which I took part in two songs, there will also be a remix of Perdurabo and of Shramm, a German project, and a remix from Romamo, an Argentinean band.
Free question!!! (Ask yourself a question) you wish to answer and haven’t been given the opportunity…
What does drones que caen means?
The translation for “Drones Que Caen” is falling drones. I think that the term drones can be applied to the people that lack of independent thinking, to persons that will do anything said by the governments, their jobs or their family. What´s the difference between robots and the people that can´t think by themselves? I want the drones to fall down, that´s why the band is called Drones Que Caen.
