What inspired you to first start making music? And how did you come to be in your current incarnation? Or if you prefer, a brief bio about you.
At a few months old I got a toy piano that I loved to play, and still do— I’ve sampled the whole thing into the EXS24 and it sounds pretty good! The last album I did was with a band called Fol Chen, but this incarnation is just me
Provide us with some info about your latest release…
The extended single adds two remixes. The first is sparkly pop by lil BUB, the one-of-a-kind magic space cat whose face you may recognize. The other is a rich, slow and layered mix by composer Raven Chacon that is beautifully disorienting. They pull you in two delightful directions that are very differently from the original.
Which ones would you consider your main influences both music-wise & non-music-wise?
I studied with James Tenney and absorbed a lot of Fluxus art. Mix that with new wave, glam and disco, a little schmaltz.
In what way does your sound differ from the rest genre-related artists/bands and why should we listen to your music? In other words, how would you describe your sound?
Let’s call it experimental electronic apocalyptic dance music.
Please name your 3 desert islands albums, movies & books…
The Carpenters Greatest Hits, a collection of whale songs and The Flashdance soundtrack.
Movies, give me some David Attenborough nature films.
And maybe if I were stuck on an island I’d finally get around to reading Patti Smith’s books.
Do you prefer studio or performing live and why?
These songs don’t translate well to live performance, which is too bad because nothing is more exhilarating.
Is there any funny-unique story you would like to share with us, always in relation to your music ‘career’?
Why is that in quotes?? Haha. Ages ago I sang in an experimental death metal band called Dog Shit Taco. We went on tour where I mostly shouted operatically through a megaphone. Check it out on Spotify!
Which track of your own would you point out as the most unique and why?
I’m not 100% sure but getting remixed by a world-renowned cat is up there.
Would you like to share with our readers your future plans?
I’m working on some ambient music for an immersive performance piece.
Free question!!! (Ask yourself a question) you wish to answer and haven’t been given the opportunity…
Were there any challenges to working with a cat?
The language barrier was really something.
