Interview with Nicolas Crombez
My work revolves around sound and image. I like to alternate these two disciplines to attack a work I rested a while from a new angle. I also try to write, I realized a short story in audiobook. Writing is the art form, which is the simplest to implement (it only takes a pencil and a sheet), but it is, paradoxically, one that takes us the furthest in the imagination.
What you enjoy the most, creating CG art or albums?
I take great pleasure to start a new job and draw up an outline. The technical aspect is also a form of creation and invention to solve all problems.
According to you what are the main elements which keep in mind while creating and developing the art?
In my point of view, the crucial element is not closing any doors. Art is life. Therefore, any feeling, any information, any idea may at some point be incorporated into a project. It is also important to be critical about his own work and segment phases of work: I dream/imagine (I do not close any doors), I create (I apply or I turn techniques) and I criticize (I take the time necessary to assess whether I am in harmony with myself). My answer may seem intellectual and rational, but in practice, these steps are done so entirely subjective and instinctive in my case.
What are your hobbies and please describe your free time, if you have any?
Almost all of my free time is spent in developing my projects. I’m very lucky because my daily life allows me to dream a lot.
On which projects you are working these days, can you share with us if not confidential?
Currently, I want to finish my album (his musical part) and find a way to expose this picture. I imagined presenting this work directly in a field, closest to the ground; I am not a supporter of museums.
You have 5 cats, so are you animal lover or just a cat lover?
I love animals; they have a great importance in my inspiration. Cats have a soothing power over me and innate understanding.
Here is what E.M. Cioran told about it: “For the animal life is everything; for humans, it is a question mark.” That is why we want to know what’s behind the hill, while the animals already know.

Thank you for your attention regarding my project. I would also like to thank all those who have expressed their support and my wife Maud, without whom I could definitely not consider my life or my dreams.
I invite those who wish to follow this project through my website. Please let me share your impressions.
