Peter Gothilainen

LAST NAME : Butte

PHILOSOPHY : “If you want to be able to stand Life, you have to be able to accept Death!” Sigmund Freud.

MUSICAL PATH : I started guitar and music in general at my 17 years. Then I quickly continued by studying the keyboard, singing and solfège as an autodidact until today.
After some time to make rock / metal covers (noise ? yes !) in garages with friends and composing orchestral pieces, the Dreamslave project has germinated in my mind …
Meanwhile, I took some piano lessons with a teacher and made a brief pass at the university to study musicology. None of these academic approaches agreed to me.
The music in its writing, its interpretation and its mixing is above all a feeling, a vibration, an emotion … which goes beyond and precedes any theory whose silence is the supreme note.
