OLLO & The Creators Podcast | Ep. 3

Episode 3: EX.SO

EX.SO is a Producer, violist, tattoo fanatic, and Graduate of the Juilliard school. He is the Creator of the Beat for the song white murals. We sit down at Mammoth american tattoo shop while he gets his second shoulder piece finished. We discuss a variety of topics like determining the value of formal education, the stigma of new ideas, in a school rooted firmly in the old world, and how to determine your own voice in the arts.
17:45-You learn the rules so you can break them. You learn what most people like so you can either cater to that or you can fight it, and a lot of the formal music education like theory and history are actually really necessary. Those are the blueprints that let you figure out what’s possible and what’s not. I use a lot of basic ass music theory I learned five years ago and just employ it in the way that I wanna employ it, and it ends up serving my purposes really well.
