Biography

Apart from making music, hosting a podcast, and most recently starting to DJ as a full time professional which has now become my full time profession, I also wrote two books: "Blood And Guts In Jail," finished in late 2021, and "Blood And Guts Before I Die," my second book, also finished. Both available from Amazon or a signed copy from isaacbjorn.com. I'm passionate about making music but that's not my defining identity. Let's say i enter the studio one night and was able to capture the magic that's behind every great song in my mind, the energy was right, the beats were slapping, and i laid down some of my best skills to create a good piece of music. I call it “good” because I like my music. When the sun rose the job was done. This is PLANETBJORN on making music. On the other side, when I'm not making music i focus very much on a simple method of Consulting service that offers smart services in three easy steps: Problem. Analysis. Solution. Using my accumulated expertise and my aptitude for “problem solving” I deliver accordingly. This is something I enjoy very much doing at isaacbjorn.com when I'm not around the studio, and is also my defining identity. Definitely something that will become full time at some point in life. I always like to have a back up plan of what I’m doing in life. If one thing becomes dormant or the times we live makes it hard (we seen it with the covid pandemic) then the other thing it can work out just fine. Writing, making music, DJ, and consulting. They all blend well together. But now let’s take music and my approach on getting into the creative field. Whenever I’m about to hit the studio I try to think about all the great music moments I’ve experienced from different artists. I say “great moments” because I don’t necessarily have a favourite artist. But I do have favourite moments. Usually it’s a song or a whole album that jumps out to me and captures a feeling I find inspiring. I sometimes use a “mnemonic” approach to dig even more these moments. Mnemonics are a system such as a pattern of memories, ideas, or associations which assists in remembering (or collecting information) very quickly. It can contribute to incredible recall skills. And since I'm on the autism spectrum this should be a piece of cake. Back to that favourite moment…Petre Ispirescu “Intr-o Seara Organica…” which I think it was out in the dead of December 2010 was “WOW” to me. The whole album for me created a favourite moment. It kinda sent me back to my Romanian roots. Is where I was born In 1991, October the 9th. More precisely on the sea side of Romania, a rather nice city...It’s called Constanta. I can’t say Petre Ispirescu was one of my favourite artist from across the Electronic Music Scene but for the one hour and thirteen minutes and thirty two seconds that album was playing, no one else was better to me. Ricardo Villalobos, perhaps is another reference point. The “Minimoonstar” remix done by Shackleton. That song for me created a favourite moment. I admit I discover it at a private after party with Arpiar & Perlon crew. I think it was somewhere in 2009. You see...another song, another location, another time in my life that created a favourite moment. A moment that can help me capture a feeling I find inspiring when i DJ & produce music. Same way with Nina Kraviz’s Skyscrapers...her song was so contagious that It put me on a mood to get in my creative zone and smash that DAW button.That favourite moment helped me push myself to explore different landscapes from electronic music rather than just stick with Progressive House. I look for that moment that can help me capture a feeling I find inspiring for my productions and DJ sets, and this is how it helps me get in the zone creatively. I’ll catalog a few of those moments in my head. And It doesn’t have to be a complete song. It could just be a great pad sound, melody, the stuff that is getting repeated at least once or twice in the song or a great bass drum that catches the ear of the listener, the structure of the song, the length, the climax, the drop, the key signature. These are the moments I’ll catalog and I’ll do it with great detail even if I don’t have the right experience. The entire time I’m recording and put everything in the arrangement view, I’ll refer back to that catalog and its moments. I might even sample a sound or two, flip it, transposed, cut, pitched, modulated, automated…perhaps even delete everything and start the whole process again. If I’m listening to a loop I just laid down, I’ll ask myself, “Was it as fire as Ricardo Villalobos’s stuff," or some other artist I find inspiring! Any artist. If the answer is no then I need to go back in the arrangement view, spend a few more hours on editing and perhaps I come up with my own “WOW” version. When the sun rose the job was done. This is PLANETBJORN on making music. Now, is every piece of music I produce is going to be a “WOW’? Of course not. But by forcing myself to measure up against top productions, I bring up the best in myself. It’s like the old saying…”Shot for the moon.” Even if you miss it you will eventually land among the stars. Same applies to my novelist side. I identify whoever the writer/author/heroine/muse/character I think is the best and I measure whatever I write against them. That’s all it takes to succeed in today’s highly competitive world. A WAY OF THINKING. My name is Isaac Bjorn, I make PLANETBJORN music and I’m simply doing it because I dedicated my life to the pursuit of amazing music since the age of 12... here I am now 30, doing the logical thing. This has been Isaac Bjorn. Thank You For Reading my Biography.
