The Creative Process #7 Detachments

What is the main art form that influenced you in creating? Was it only music or did movies and other forms of art influenced your creative process?

Yeah movies, early memories of TV – quite a lot of sci-fi as a kid. Kubrick’s 2001 had a big impact on me as a precocious 10 year old. Influences can be, I don’t know…interpersonal and socio-political vexations, the new Bladerunner film’s cityscapes provided a mental image guide for me on new song on the forthcoming EP. Certainly the mood of some books e.g. the Sorrows of Young Werther, imagery from that guided me on once. Nausea (Satre), Hesse. Poetry. Other music mainly – musicians doing something authentic, truthful and with edge.

The Creative Process #5 Phelian

How long does it take to go from a song to an album from scratch to the fully recorded version?

I think it’s all dependent on how much you work on it. For me I think 8 months to a year is a suitable time frame. Usually when I think a track is complete, I will go for a week to a month, months of not working on it at all, and revisit it later to see if I feel it needs to be developed more.

The Creative Process #3 Poetrip

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

Poetrip: Our first material was a DIY/lo-fi, in which we tried to make a short version of a 20 minutes groovy flow of consciousness. It was nice, unlike the experiences we had later in proper studios, where we realized we feared the red recording button. We didn’t promote that song in any way, we just posted it on soundcloud, but, to our surprise, it became some kind of a hit, as people still call its name at us on the street: Pufuleeeți!

The Creative Process #2 Dordeduh

What is the main art form that influenced you in creating? Was it only music or did movies and other forms of art influenced your creative process?

My main influence was my inner drive. I knew I had to make music. I never really had the strong wish to sound like a particular band, or to write music out of social contexts. To be honest, I wanted to integrate spirituality in music, since the beginning, even if it wasn’t that clear in the beginning.

The Creative Process #1 Seas of Years

When did you start making music and what was the contributor factor that made you to do so?

It’s hard to remember exactly but sometime in the early 90’s I started playing guitar and me and some friends tried to write some very basic (and very bad) songs. By 1997-98 it was finally starting to sound like music. Just listening to music and discovering new things made me want to be part of it.
