The Creative Process #25 Fog Light

How hard was it for you to create, record and release your first material?

Jarmo: As soon as I started playing drums we had also our very first band going (not Fog Light). We spared some money to get the Fostex 4- track recorder. We had one mic and that tracker. Lots of demos were done with that equipment. Nowadays, I have my own home studio with modern mics and interface. Fog Light albums have been created, recorded in our own studios. We have released albums, songs and videos by our own, but the last two albums were released by Inverse records from Finland.

The Creative Process #18 Oh Hiroshima

What is your main motivation to create and be creative?

It’s just a great way to express yourself, especially the things that you really can’t express in words since it’s hard to capture in existing categories of language. Except for a very talented few authors. But for us to express ourselves, we chose this medium. It’s also a great way to hang out.

What are your future plans and what advice do you have for people that want to get into creating music?

My future plans are to continue making music. I have some exciting things planned, along with a lot more music inside that needs to come out. My advice is to make music that is true to you. Theres only one you, so be true to your story. Don’t be tempted to tell anyone else’s story.
