With Traveler CS: an interview with the artist of "Adam"
Traveler CS is the brainchild of Cameron Fitzpatrick, an American musician, composer, and producer from North Carolina. Cameron Fitzpatrick has been active in the music scene from a young age, starting in his early teens. His roots are classical, including piano, violin, and classical vocal training, all of which began when he was a young boy. He began writing in several progressive rock bands, performing all along the eastern United States coast. In Traveler, he is returning to his classical influences while maintaining his progressive desire for experimentation and incorporating vintage and modern synthesizers, percussion, and soundscapes. He released his debut full length, Janus, on Sonder House Records, and self released an EP titled Halcyon in February of 2020. His second full length, Adam, is out via Blue Spiral Records.
Hi Cameron, you are an emerging artist but with different results already achieved, can you tell
us briefly what artist you are?
What are your influences and your musical references?
I tend to compose based on how I feel in the moment. The most natural way for me to write is to simply spend some time with my instruments and play them, waiting to see what comes out.
How do you compose? Do you feel a musical theme in your mind or is it more
based on creating from sensations?
How was your latest album born?
At what time of the day do you like to compose? Is it an expressive urgency due to an inspiration or do you meditate and plan everything with scrupulous criteria?
What would you answer to those who ask you why you should listen to your music?
Music is a huge part of me, present even when I don't want it to be. It sometimes comforts me and sometimes tortures me!
