In Motion 2024 Q&A: Medulasa

Share this page

Sound and Music’s In Motion programme brings together a diverse group of composers, each with a unique voice and vision. This Q&A series offers a glimpse into their creative worlds, revealing their musical influences, current projects, and aspirations for the future.

Here, we speak to In Motion 2024 composer Medulasa.

Can you tell us about your musical influences?

My musical influences are, unfortunately for everyone involved, myriad:

Deconstructed club music, goth, nu-metal, ambient, gabber, industrial, the golden era of trance, neoclassical and avant garde music from 1914 onwards (shoutout to Stravinsky’s “The Rite Of Spring”), the mother eternal Björk, SOPHIE, the godfathers of club maximalism The Prodigy, The Body (the band, and also the concept), Daft Punk, the production goddess aya, doom and drone metal, The Cyborg Manifesto by Donna Haraway, The Powers of Horror by Julia Kristeva, being extremely online, growing up with a punk mum and a prog rock n roller dad.

What are you working on at the moment?

At the moment I’m finalizing the debut EP of original pieces by my side project DJ Netflex, and I’m producing a song for my partner, the talented singer and songwriter ASHERAH. Most importantly, I’m preparing to start work in earnest on a twinned pair of Medulasa’s debut albums together with the assistance of In Motion. I’m also working as a mixing and mastering engineer and producer-for-hire.

What are you looking forward to most about In Motion?

I’m most looking forward to structured mentorship on how to build a more sustainable career as a composer, something I really feel I’ve been missing up to this point. I’m also very excited to get involved with the rest of the cohort, and also to have the opportunity to expand and deepen my practice with the guidance and budget that In Motion provides.
