Interview

Posted in Other Blackness with tags , on October 31, 2011 by drawingsubscription

So, I did this interview with a very nice guy from Bite magazine for their second issue (The Power Issue).  We discuss Black, the Order of the Black Mark, the role of the Drawing Subscription in the studio and other fun stuff.

The full-screen navigation is a little funky, but you get used to it pretty quickly.  Check it out!

I think a lot about this excerpt from Steven Parrino’s “The No Texts”, reprinting an interview with Lydia Lunch:

SWN: Why do you play such short sets?

LL: Less is more. That’s how I feel. Like discipline. Or punishment. You don’t need 30 minutes of my music to know what I’m talking about.

SWN: Does a 30-second instrumental say it all?

LL: Yes. It says, ‘FUCK!’ ‘CHILD!’ ‘HURT!’ ‘FUCK!’

SWN: Is the minimalism very important? There’s an absence of dynamics in the music, your words express very simple feelings. They don’t even express an opinion. Would any more compromise your opinion of the audience, which is very low?

LL: I never said that. Only that they’re secondary compared to me. I don’t think more music is needed. And that attitude is what I feel. It’s like primal therapy. I scream for you, you know. I’m up there screaming my fucking guts out. It’s for you as much as me, only I’d be…

SWN: The last to admit it.

Resonating…

There are precious few creatures on this planet that understand how to move through a sonic landscape like Keiji Haino.  I’ve been thinking quite a lot about reverberation lately.  Ripples on the surface of water.  Disruptions in the flow of space/time.  This is definitely feeding the ideas becoming manifest in the 2012 series…

Vincent Como, Modernism

Among other things, this summer found me reading and re-reading some goodies like these in the studio.

Psychic Conflict? Perhaps.  We’ll see…
