Music makes sense to me, it appears to me as a series of logical decisions based on mood. I’m not talking about just harmony, but everything from design to arrangement, atonality and noise. All of this makes sense to me, a hell of a lot more sense than anything else in my life, and certainly a lot more sense than humans. I think I also get off on the control aspect of it, if I’m honest.
Et si tu nâ€™avais pas fait de musique ? And if music wasnâ€™t your thing?
If you want to do it, you actually have to do it, you did it yesterday, you did it today and you’re going to do it tomorrow. The world is full of people who talk a good game but do nothing. Talent is second to hard work. The likelihood of anyone ever making it is so slim that you’d better find a way to enjoy what you do, because no one is going to give a fuck about you and your stupid fucking band.
I’m not sure it’s happened. No one has heard of me. I know it sounds terribly humble for me to say this, but I’m always pleasantly surprised when someone says they liked something I made. The larger music industry insists that no one knows who I am.
I’m not sure what this exactly refers to. But the downside of an artistic life is one of financial uncertainty, relationships get over strained, most normal people are completely unprepared for not having a safety net. I have moved around a lot. I’ve moved house 18 times in 7 years. My lovers have left me for more stable men. I’ve been technically homeless more than once. Free drinks sound great but damn do they bring on the worst depression. I miss people and spend most of my days feeling isolated and sad.
Y a t-il une vie aprÃ¨s la mort artistique ? Is there life after artistic death?
I haven’t done a live show for 18 months, I’m not sure why, the last one I did was really amazing and people really liked it, but no one seemed to ask me again. So I’ve been Djing a lot for the last year and what usually happens is I drink a bunch of sparkling water and chat with people. I don’t really know what’s going to happen really.
Avec qui aimerais-tu travailler (musique et hors musique) ? Who would you work with (musically or not)?
I would love to do a score for William Friedkin. I’ve said this many times but he’s still not got back in touch with me. I’m 100% Serious. I think I would do a good job. I would like to do more film scores in general. I would also like to hire Steve Albini to record a techno album at Electrical Audio, because that would be very funny.
Quel serait le climax de ta carriÃ¨re artistique ? What would be the climax of your career?
Retour Ã lâ€™enfance, quel conseil te donnesâ€“tu ? Back to your childhood â€“ what piece of advice would you give your young self?
You see, when I was growing up and I tried to talk about Tangerine Dream, I was told by â€œcool peopleâ€ that I had awful taste in music. Now look at the world. God damn, yeah, right? Stranger Things happened, they used some cool music from Exit and Green Desert, even the SURVIVE dudes’ score was pretty TD. The concept of the guilty pleasure is that somehow you know it’s bad but you are getting off on it at the same time. I hated Take That, but with time I see now they had some bangers, I wouldn’t listen to it but I can appreciate it because I know more about songwriting now. I still think Robbie Williams’ solo stuff is piss poor. What I’m saying is I can’t quantify these things so here is a list of movies that I think people should see:
Don’t Torture A Duckling
A Snake Of June
The Duke Of Burgundy
The Banshee Chapter
