Let dub rule !
Here comes the 2nd episode of spiel:feld´s live-set series with focus on live-playing producers.
spiel:feld´s live operation with ... Triames !!!
1 hour finest deep techno dubtechno - all played LIVE by Triames with several equipment.
★ Triames´ equipment:
iPad running Jazzmutant Lemur
Laptop running Live and Reaktor
Distance Uninstaller (VIMrecords 193, Greece)
Interval EP (Insectorama 054, Germany)
POIM cassette compilation (Pragmat 002, Germany)
Lanthanum (Doppt Zykkler 025, Spain)
There's a couple of releases scheduled for this year, which are already finished, and a LP in the making called Invisible Worker (most of this live show is made of parts of that record, so you are the first to have a sneak peak at it, by the way!). I also collaborated in a project called Empty Files, which saw the light this year, check it out at www.emptyfiles.net
★ a little conversation:
ColtEP: Where are you now and where you wish to be?
Triames: In a room filled with plants, computers and audio equipment. I'd like to be in a hangar filled with plants, computers and audio equipment.
Career-wise, I'd like to make this economically sustainable - periodic "professional" releases, better equipment, touring frequently, releasing some free stuff once in a while, and basically making a living out of it so I can focus 24/7 on music and have the resources to improve the quality of what I do. I'm a long way from there yet.
ColtEP: What is your inspiration for creating your tracks?
Triames: Interacting with technology is usually a great creativity booster for me, when you encounter complex functions and add that to what you already know, new ideas spawn very quick. I have a compact hand recorder, which is a neverending source of amazement too, a walk in the city can provide you with tons of inspiring material. Also every record and sound I've ever heard is probably still floating in my subconsciousness influencing me somehow, which I find pretty interesting.
ColtEP: Do you have a special approach/strategy for producing your music?
Triames: I usually start by exploring a certain function, process or "what if I run this through that" that I've never tried before. With some luck, something interesting starts to emerge, and I build a structure around it. I never know where this is going to lead.
It's also very important for me to design every sound I use from scratch.
ColtEP: Where and how do you produce your music?
Triames: In a house in the forests, chain smoking late at night.
ColtEP: What was your musical progress?
Triames: Like most people, I started listening to music compulsively in my teens, back then I liked the new wave of post industrial music that emerged in the 90s (NIN, Skinny Puppy, Ministry, and all the noisy bunch). I started djing that sort of stuff in my twenties, during those years I learned about music software, drum machines and whatnot, and I started thinking about adding that to my shows, which lead to me being more interested in producing rather than djing. At the time I also discovered techno, dub and the "deep" side of electronic club stuff.
ColtEP: Which LP´s you would recommend to everybody (maybe 3 or 5)?
Triames: In no particular order,
Momentum, by Monolake, which has the perfect balance between darkness and light, beats and texture, sound design and club-worthy structures.
The Downward Spiral, by NIN, which was the first record to make me want to make music.
Oversteps, by Autechre, which is odd for me because it has more melodic content than all of the above combined (as you can probably tell, I'm not that much into melody!)
ColtEP: What do you wish for your future?
Triames: Lots of releases, live shows, learning, world peace maybe?
THANK YOU !
