Alan Walker’s Interview Q&A

Pooja Kashyap: Can you describe the pivotal moment when you decided to pursue music seriously as a career?

Alan Walker: That must have been when I released “Faded.” It was picked up by NCS, and we started working on it. Naturally, I had no idea what was going to happen next, but during this period, everything just got bigger!

Pooja Kashyap: How has social media, particularly platforms like TikTok, influenced your creative process and the way you discover new talent?

Alan Walker: I started my career on YouTube and have always been inspired by other creators and their creations. TikTok is somewhat similar. I like the community you find there and the opportunities to collaborate across borders, language barriers, and interests.

Pooja Kashyap: How do you utilize platforms like YouTube to connect with your fans and showcase your music?

Alan Walker: I try to make the most of it by testing new functionalities, coming up with ideas for how to release music, and most importantly, communicating with other users.

Pooja Kashyap: Your decision to perform unmasked at your residency in Las Vegas was a significant moment for your fans. Can you share more about this decision and how it represents your growth as an artist?

Alan Walker: That’s right! Ever since I started performing in 2016, I’ve worn a mask. It’s a huge part of me, the project, and most importantly, a significant symbol of my connection with the audience and fans. The “Unmasked at LIV” is an exclusive concept for LIV in Vegas, which is incredibly fun, and I’m already looking forward to the next show. However, I will probably keep the mask for my regular concerts for a while longer.
