"I was always fascinated by space and time," says singer/songwriter Sebastian Portillo, who calls the picturesque Swiss state of Bern home. "The idea of understanding time and space and making it useful for human kind also reflects in my music and in my lyrics. I want to get to the bottom of every unexplainable thing and get an explanation for it." For Sebastian, the airy, funky, atmospheric alternative pop music he creates in the studio goes hand in hand with his life's quest to understand and explain mysteries great and small. He says the most exciting mystery to him is the process "of creating something that does not exist yet." "Music and words are my artistic form of expression," he adds. "Instead of creating a painting, a sculpture or other piece of art, I'm creating my music, which is, very often, like a picture of my soul or state of mind. I love the human mind... space and time-the wide, the unexplainable, the mystical, the supernatural. My music fills the emptiness in space and time with something emotional."
