Music is something that Ivan Pastyrcak always felt very passionate about. He had an early introduction to music, listening to grandparents Emília and Vincent playing on diatonic button accordion and harmonica every day while growing up. It was through this that Ivan began to explore the beauty of musical art form which led him to start learning the piano and music composition under guidance of Mgr. Art. Jana Pavlinská when he was 14 years old.
While in his teenage years, he started to immerse himself in all different genres including classical music, ambient, minimal, musique concrete and lo-fi music but predominantly hip-hop. While in high school in 2011, these experimentations ended up in forming one of the current most successful hip-hop bands in Slovakia called HAHA Crew, being one of the co-founders and music producers of this band. After dozens of unreleased songs, Ivan produced one of the first releases of Samey, HAHA Crew member, called Ticho/Silence in 2013 featuring rapper Puerto and female singer Salome.
At the end of 2013, Ivan moved to Bratislava and next three years began to dive into world of audio recording, mixing and audio post-production being very interested in the quality of recorded sound. He started working with artists from music label F*CK THEM, such as Gleb who Ivan helped to record few songs. At the end of this period in 2016, Ivan moved back to Košice where he worked as an audio technician building PA systems and providing technical support for bands and live sound engineers. This experience has shown Ivan totally different perspective on music creation which was more technical and laid the groundwork for his future development in the creative aspect of music composition.
