His name is Mihai Gabriel Pripici, but his friends know him as “Miki.” He was born 22 years ago in Bucharest, but he’s spent some ten years in Călărași. He discovered a passion for music very early in life while humming his favorite artists’ songs around the house or at school. In parallel, Miki found interests in several other areas, from art to science and computer science.
A positive learning experience is related to the Danubius High School in Călărași, where he discovered his first mentor in the teacher Loredana Mira (coordinator of the journalism center there). As he confesses, high school remains a most beautiful experience! One that he continues through his work with PlayHood. As a sound engineer who contributes to the “making of new talents,” Miki loves working with Ionuț Oprea and feels at home at the Ferentari Studios.
He wishes to get involved in as many SF projects as possible and become a well-known artist, working with his idols. Currently, Miki is active as a composer, producer, and audio-video editor, but he also makes time for various creative workshops organized at the Ferentari Studios. He told us about one of these in a personal account.
