Music about Music!
A favourite question of mine is...
- What is music? In where lies the essence of a sound, as to become tools for the captivation of the human emotion?
Working with the Sampler is basically recording any sound from any source that I come across. Sampling mostly Vinyl segments or recording "Open Air" acoustic ambience.
Sometimes finding myself creating a potentially challenging & disturbing sound… Setting a stage for exploring challenging sound scape possibilities for a mind-twisting & captivating sound tool.
…then I enjoy the process of where I slowly let the sound grow on me, to the point where all my old preferences & perceptions are gradually being realigned or re-twisted.
Driven by a morbid curiosity of challenging my perception of what I might want to "make work" in a process of creation.
This creative freedom implies a certain existential responsibility for me, as to what I might chose to indulge.
The "sampling concept" has to me been an excellent tool for the broadening of my music experience.
I like to call myself a Post Modern "Sound Pirate".
Stealing or recycling any sound I come across & creating a new experiences of old memories, times & places".
This is my vision!
Totally freeing my creativity from the harsh reality of the "Grand Theft Sound" being in progress.
In one sense, it´s a Music license Nightmare. But on the other a hand the results are timeless & classic.
