Interview with Alt3r3d Stat3
1. Give us a brief history of the project
The history of the project is just a general love of music of all kinds. I started off using guitars and drum machines and stuff but got no satisfaction and so turned to more experimental ambient stuff instead and found that it flowed much better than trying for verse, chorus , verse chorus stuff…..its more like filming a movie really rather than writing music.
2. What are your influences?
My influence are mainly movies but also music as well, i try to listen to as much experimental stuff as possible really, Spotify is great for discovering new stuff.
3. What does your studio or recording space look like?
See Photo……am saving up to buy Ableton Push that has just been released…that looks awesome!!!
4. What do you feel as you record music?
When i record music i mainly feel frustration in trying to come up with a certain sound or feeling, but when it flows it just flows and so it feels great !!
5. If you had to listen to one artist for the rest of your life, who would it be?
The one artist i would listen to for the rest of my life would……impossible to say as it varies so much…..one minute its Mastodon the next i could be listening to Massive Attack or brian Eno and then 1349…..too many to mention!!!!!!
6. If you could meet someone living or dead,who would it be and why?
I would love to meet Jim Morrison for the dead and Mr Simon Heath for the living to shake his hand and say thanks for listening and liking my stuff !!!!
7. What is something that not a lot of people know about you but you WISH more people COULD know?
Not a lot of people now that i am just as confused and messed up as they are about life in general and that i too cant wait for the aliens to land as well!!!
8. Any last words for us?
Any last words…………when i grow up i wanna be bright white light!!!!
