Flint Juventino Beppe and music - an inseparable entity
Composing and creative art is a lifestyle for Flint Juventino Beppe (b.1973). This has never been a conscious choice; it had to be this way. As long as he can remember, music has flowed through his mind – and Beppe's lifestyle has been greatly influenced by this.
Beppe is diagnosed with Tourette's syndrome and Asperger's syndrome. The social limitations often connected to these syndromes might explain why Beppe has no conventional musical education.
«It is really as simple as it is complicated - I breathe in what life has to offer, and breathe out what I have to offer life. I have given up trying to grasp what actually happens in the process from impression to expression.»
