It is possible to listen to dance-oriented EDM and EDM in the big room performed by Agenda Ambiente, as well as house, techno, and trance influences. While acknowledging that EDM is the mothership of other sub-genres, he doesn’t consider himself an EDM expert.
Learn about his music career and most recent album titled “Push!” in this exclusive interview.
What is your real and official showbiz name?
My real name is Peter Broms, going under the name Agenda Ambiente for my music production.
I’m a Swedish ex-pat enjoying life in Central America, in the land of eternal spring Guatemala. Where I come from, it often felt that winter lasted forever. Minus 25C? Not unusual. Here, it’s spring all year around. Plus 25C? More or less always. This does have a positive effect on my output.
How long have you been making music and what attracted you to it?
I’ve been involved in music “forever”. My father played the organ and the accordion, so I was surrounded by music from the start. I bought my first synthesizer when I was 17 but waited until last year before I published my first album. This was soon followed by many more.
What were your first project and the people you worked with and which year?
The very first project was a rock project I finished together with two friends back in 1996.
Who or what inspires you or motivates you? And why?
Inspiration comes from things and people around me: nature, the weather, travel, new acquaintances, new experiences, cultures, and people, but also key sentiments: lust for life, love, kindness, and happiness. Putting such ambience into music is extremely rewarding.
What are your friend’s and parents’ thoughts on your career in singing?
In short, they are happy I’ve found and nurtured this outlet.
What are some of the challenges you face in your career path?
Oh, there are plenty of obstacles: time, resources, the possibility to get a strong and steady outreach to people who love my music, both audience and curators, labels, and managers.
How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
In some way, it has liberated the market. Everyone can now find a position and an outlet for their creativity. On the other hand, even strong signals are increasingly and unfortunately becoming covered in a duvet of noise. It is difficult to find a strong and lasting link between artist and audience.
Do you have any advice for aspiring songwriters?
The key point is patience. It is a marathon, not a sprint. And, also: do it because you love it, whether you are “successful” or not. After all, what can be more successful than being able to spend time doing something you love?
What is your current project about?
The single “Push!” is a song that wants to push us all to take that extra step, on the dance floor, in the gym – everywhere!
What does this song mean to you?
Happiness and energy.
What are your hobbies?
Apart from music which is both a pastime and a career: films, concerts and books.
What do you do aside from this profession?
I spend time with my wife, with friends, IRL or URL, I read a lot, watch films and TV series, and I travel a lot, to meet new places, new people, new ambiences, cultures and experiences.
What is one message you would give to your fans?
Stay true to yourself, your music and your fans. Reach out! There will always be people around you who will constructively address your work and make you grow both as an artist and as a person.
