We had the good fortune of connecting with Ruy Folguera and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ruy, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking Starting out as a musician inherently means risk taking. Risk of balancing your talent and your social skills associated with creating and nurturing work relationships. Ever since beginning to study music we are faced with the missconception that it’s not a “real” career, just a hobby or a hope of making it big. Later on the specialization of composer even further outlines the search for the abstract.. and even more so when it’s applied towards film music, where instinct and people skills form a huge part of the craft. So I guess it’s immensely risky and bold as a life choice, but at the same time it’s one usually with no real escape path since it involves a passion to which there’s no clear option. It’s imperative we follow it and therefore no real risk arises since there’s no alternative.
