I fucking love ARCANE|||CUT and |Bastien, what are some of the influencing factors that inspired it? Can you tell me a little bit about recording it as well?
|Bastien is the first CDR I did for Phantasma Disques. It’s half measured, minimal found sound. I recorded it the Winter when everything and everyone is fucking cold, slow moving and in waiting of some sort of “bang”. I can hear the winter in the tracks. |Bastien is a reference to the saint and martyr Sebastian, whom I have an affinity for. ARCANE|||CUT is a recent release on cassette via Haute Magie. It’s definity sample driven….each track was structured around a certain “cut”…many of which were taken from Gregorian chants and olde folk songs. Most of the tracks include interviews with cult leaders and serial killers on death row and their thoughts on the after life.
Can you tell me about some of your current favorite artists, local or elsewhere?
I’m really loving what both BLVCK CEILING and BRUXA are producing right now. △NDRΛS, The Ceremonial Dagger, Mascara, GLASS TEETH, Clams Casino and Ritualz are artists I can never get enough of. Locally the Boston CVLT crew is straight killin’ it…artists inlcude GLASS TEETH, MagZilla, TPWLYST, El Poser, Shimoda and Punketta, CTRL ALT DESIGN and HEXbeam.
What is it about the aesthetic of modern goth culture and dark electronic music that captures your imagination?
The cosmic black and gold.
Can you give me an example of a song you consider perfect?
Mike Oldfield – Tubular Bells.
If I were to vacation in your hell what should I expect to find there?
… alotta shit.
Have you had an experience with the supernatural that you’d be willing to share?
I’ve had a number of experiences. I won’t share them. Real shit.
If you could collaborate with any artist living or dead who would it be?
Francesca Woodman or Valerie Solanas.
Some are saying this is the greatest era to exist as a musician, others say it’s the worst, what has your experience been like?
My eyes are dusty, but some of the freshest sounds are out there and are easily accessible…E-living and cracked codes gave shit and sonic innovation an opportunity.
Have you ever been to a psychic, would you be willing to share that experience if so?
I get my cards read often…more so by my friends than a psychic. For me, a reading is like hitting the introspective refresher button. It’s just way of staying connected with myself.
Are you working on any new material, can you tell me about it?
I’m releasing a on a supreme Mixx for Noisey/Vice Magazine real soon. I’m also preparing for a gallery show I have in mid October at the SEASON Gallery in Seattle. It’s in collaboration with DEAD ART STAR and MagZilla, two artists I work with visually and sonically. I’ll be showing some video and sound work. The whole show will be dope.
