Dominik Marty, known as “Sitä” is Zoder’s man for rhythm guitars. Sitä and Zoder share a long story starting with a rock cover band in 2001. Since then they spent holidays together, done lots of road trips together and recorded some of the first Zoder demo tapes.
Dear Sitä, what did you have for breakfast today?
Today, I just had a coffee for breakfast. Most of the time I don’t like eating too much for breakfast. When I do it’s usually a small yogurt or a nice croissant.
What was your inspiration to start playing guitars?
My first guitar was a gift from my godmother when I was about the age of 9. At that time, I didn’t really know what to do with it. Furthermore, classical guitar picking never really thrilled me. After 4 years of music class given by nuns, we got a young cool teacher at fifth grade with whom we sang a lot and who was outstanding in accompanying the class with the guitar. That was very impressive to me and inspired me. He was the reason I started listening to rock music. That was when I really wanted to learn how to play the guitar.
What does music mean to you?For me, music is one of the most beautiful ways to interact or communicate in the world. It is capable of expressing any kind of emotions. In addition, making music is a great way for me to balance out the rather top-heavy work in the office.
What do you like most about the new Zoder Album “WeatherTales”?
What I like most is that it is varied but still has a common thread. The album is peppered with beautiful songs and I like the sound very much.
2020 was a very strange year. What are your wishes for 2021?
I hope that in 2021 concerts with an audience will be possible again and I wish that especially the young people can look more positively into the future.
