I guess we spent a lot of time together on the road,â€‹ â€‹starting craving for more chilling music to listen in the car while driving ah!â€‹ â€‹We found ourself very close musicallyâ€‹ and started wanting to explore new sounds and â€‹â€‹to use some different instruments and machines to make musicâ€‹.â€‹ â€‹Both me and Tom are avid record collectors and listeners so we started jamming in search for new way to express our â€‹mixed up musical state of mind, and to find a new silence.
Pourquoi ce nom? Que signifie-t-il et quel lien Ã sa signification avec votre musique ? Can you explain the name of the project? What meaning does it take on and which link it established with your music?
Ca ne veut rien dire dans aucune langue mais Ã§a a un rythme plaisant, comme la musique.
It doesn’t mean anything in any language.â€‹ but it has a pleasing rhythm. similar to the music!
â€‹It started out as explicitly a guitar free zone. A way for us to bring the rhythm section to the front! We listen to everything but perhaps right now are most influenced by modern composers, minimalism, music concrete, industrial and spiritual jazz.
Comment composez-vous ensemble et quel est votre champ d’investigation ? How do you compose together and which is your field of investigation?
We â€‹ work in the studio on creating a new sound world, using preparations to make our instruments sound different or strange. Then we usually â€‹record for hourâ€‹s, and thenâ€‹ at home â€‹we listen to it all, discuss and make selections that we like.
Est-ce un projet avant tout conÃ§u pour le live ? Is it a project intended above all for the live?
I guess we don’t have â€‹specific â€‹intentionâ€‹ about live vs studio, they both have their charms. This project was born in the studio and then we did some live shows, which were pretty much entirely improvised. â€‹â€‹â€‹Now we are preparing a more focused live show â€‹â€‹for our tour in November, which will be a slightly different approach. â€‹Making music constantly is what we want to doâ€‹. â€‹
â€‹We are very pleased that this link has naturally occurred. We weren’t thinking specifically about visuals when we made the music but now feel very privileged to have fantastic artists like Ross Adams who are getting involved and helping is to translate our music into images. We are now thinking more and more about composing for and with visual accompaniment and it seems completely natural and perfect.
Pensez-vous que Tomaga va influencer The Oscillation ? Do you think that Tomaga is going to influence in the approach The Oscillation?
They are very different projects. However we would love to have a TOMAGA track remixed made by Damien Castellanos and will probably do a remix swap with him very soon! He is an amazing musician and producer and a great friend.
I guess we don’t ask but we are alwayâ€‹s excited to work â€‹with whoever understands and appreciates our music.â€‹ We have had some interest from some very interesting producers already, and we just finished remixing someone else’s music for the first time which has been fun. â€‹
Pourquoi avoir choisi Hands in the Dark pour sortir ce LP ? Why have you chose Hands in the Dark Records to take out this new LP?
â€‹They are â€‹â€‹aâ€‹mazing people, we â€‹have known them and â€‹respectâ€‹edâ€‹ their â€‹work for ages, and when they were interested to release our music we thought that couldn’t be a better way to start.
Quel est le futur proche de Tomaga ? Whats the near futur of Tomaga?
Grotesk!â€‹ …and we’re on tour in November with Silver Apples, and also Le Guess Who Festival and a trip to Liepzig to play with Winged Victory For the Sullen. And we’ve already been recording new materialâ€‹.
