We are hiding in the areas of San Bernardino. Where the mountain range touches the deserts. If you want to experience true loss of hope in humanity this is it. But the scenery is amazing. We started in 2011 from a desire to create sound collage.
It came about one night from a friend of ours who used to run a 90s label called Vermiform. He tends to have good ideas so we took his advice on it. The music came much later. Three years later in fact.
It is simply to work with as many people as possible. We like each labels art so we seek them out. Skrot Up is one of the few we did two releases with. Also I would say we would be happy to work with each label again. It comes from scattered thought process.
Our friend who runs Hobo Cult does both the MerX and GeAr videos. I think he conveys the feelings as the songs were made. Primarily a heavy detachment from reality. I believe the images are found objects much like the samples in our songs.
Not really but I do appreciate the new insight. I guess the heavy use of samples and random glitch are influenced by Negativland who are quit humorous. Also it seems that many times the modern day industrial show of nihilism is simply an act, much like a emotional dress up. I think fashion plays a big role in folks minds both physically and emotionally in music today and I am not sure what is genuine anymore. I guess our humorous side is indeed our own nihilism because of how ridiculous everything is. A coping mechanism it seems for the environment we are a part of.
Votre page facebook mentionne l’influence d’un « certain groupe de musique industriel anglais des 70’s ». Il s’agit de Throbbing Gristle ou de Cabaret Voltaire ?
Your FB page mentions influence from « a certain English Industrial band that was around in the ’70« : is that Cabaret Voltaire or Throbbing Gristle?
It is the push to record at a driven level much like TG. G the other part of this band wrote that as he is much more into the recording aspect and respects the tape culture behind TG. I myself obsess over writing music and enjoy that journey.
San Bernardino was where we grew up and it is a very inspiring area from the natural side of things. Its human aspects are extremely primitive and depressing much like Needles or any other desert area it can hit you with ideas in a intense way.
Los Angeles est-elle un bon terrain pour l’indus, le drone ?
Is there a good ground for drone/indus and the like in Los Angeles?
I believe there is but we do not live in Los Angeles enough to know such things. Riverside and San Bernardino are nearly 2 hours away. This makes a huge detachment between us and that city. Los Angeles might as well be Oakland or San Diego because it is simply too far away to actually see what is happening.
C’est plutÃ´t le cas. Parfois tout nous vient naturellement et quand Ã§a arrive Ã§a donne lieu Ã des sessions intenses. On a alors l’impression qu’il faut que tout soit fait en deux ou trois jours pour capturer ce qui se passe, et que toute attente affaiblirait la musique.
This is much the case. There are moments when everything comes and when it does it happens in an intense session. It is a feeling that it has to get done in 2 to 3 days to capture what is happening and it feels that waiting will only water down the music.
Le manque d’information autour de vous est-il intentionnel ou juste un moyen de s’amuser en semant un peu de confusion ?
Is the lack of information around you intentional as part of the project’s identity or just random fun to spread a little confusion?
Who we are does not matter at all to us. This is also why interviews are difficult. We are just documenting our thoughts as all that really matters is the sounds being made. No one needs to see or know us in relation to our music. I prefer to meet people on terms outside of music on a daily routine separate from art or music.
