Iga Massardi is a very good friend of ours and a hell of a guitarist. I'm pretty sure when you think about The Trees and The Wild, you think about him. He might seem serious on stage but with us.. Oh no no no!

What kind of music captures you and why?
ROCK! I am an aggressive young man who's introverted. So ROCK can really represent me from it's energy, harmony and expression. Rock is very diverse.. From Led Zeppelin to Tame Impala.Well the point is anything expressive.

ROCK! saya adalah pemuda agresif yang introvert. jadi ROCK sangat bisa mewakilkan saya dari segi energi, harmonisasi, dan ekspresi. Rock sangat luas. Dari Led Zeppelin sampe Tame Impala. Intinya sih musik yg ekspresif gitu loh..

If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?

Why do you play music?
Me playing music is equivalent to breathing. From the moment I wake up and poo, music is all I think about. Guitar, effects, guitar amplifiers. When other people are thinking about buying clothes, I don't. All I read are guitar magazines. Guitarist & Guitar World Mag.

Kamu ini kok kaya baru kenal saya aja.. *ember.. saya itu main musik sama kayak nafas. dari bangun tidur sampe cebok yg saya pikirin itu cuma musik, gitar, efek gitar, ampli gitar. kalo orang lain masih bisa mikirin beli baju, saya nggak bisa. pedoman saya itu majalah gitar. Guitarist & Guitar World magz.

What's the first album you bought?
I forgot precisely... But if I'm not mistaken, Java Jive.

Lupa persisnya apa..tapi kalo nggak salah Java Jive.

What keeps you up at night?

Other than music, what else is important to you?

Nothing. Family, probably.

Where do you want to see your self in 10 years?
At home. Listening to Is This It with my kid.

Where do you want to be when wake up?
In my own room.
