I'm not really sure of the process beyond that. I never set out to get a particular sound, though of course my musical loves have undoubtedly shaped what I do immensely. Sorry, I wish I could be more specific. It has just been such an organic process of music becoming an ever greater part of my life, I really don't know how it happened. I hear you're going to debut in a live setting some time this summer, would you care to share anything regarding how you feel about live performance or what you might have in mind?
TS: My feelings about live performance are very much coloured by my shyness, which makes it seem a pretty daunting prospect. I also feel a slight ambivalence about musical performance in the sense of an "artist" entertaining an audience. I think art, and indeed life, should be a communal, open experience, with no heirarchical realtionships and preferably no involvement of money, which so colours human interactions.
So I'm trying to think of ways to make it not a performance, but an open, collective, ritual experience. I'm not sure how yet, but I'll certainly be taking visual materials film projections, possibly masks and other objects and I'm also considering things like having flutes and bells lying around for people to use as the spirit moves them.
However, I know all too well what a difficult thing this is for people in our society, myself more than most We'll see, I've no doubt it'll be an embarrasing disaster, but what the hell.
So I can understand to some degree what you mean, but saying you "heard very little music" begs elaboration. Were you in isolation? What do you mean? TS: Sorry, I should have made that clearer. What I meant was that prior to about about four or five years ago, I had never had any interest in music.
I didn't own a single record and never listened to the radio. Then, I had a strong feeling that I in fact loved music, just had never heard the right kind. So I raided my dad's lp boxes playing everything indiscriminately, without the slightest clue who the artists were, what it might sound like and so on.
TS: I don't think it was ever a conscious decision, I wanted to start making music, so I did. Sorry, that's a terrible answer, I guess its just something which was never an issue. It's clear you have strong feelings about music. I know that some of your out of print recordings are being shared on the internet.
How do you feel about that? If an internet label approached you about a release, what would you say? TS: Haha, well, first off I think I should let you know that I've made some big changes relating to this question whilst this discussion has been taking place. I've actually decided to not put together any further releases though there are still a few masters at different labels awaiting release.
I've put the first recordings on there already, and will hopefuly be updating fairly regularly. Now, onto your question Regarding the term spiritual, I think I should perhaps clarify my feelings. I don't believe in anything supernatural and I'm not religious in any sense. I do however very much think that music and all human creativity should not just be a central "part" of people lives, but not be considered in any way seperated from life at all.
They are open, communal, ever changing expressions of and reactions to the constant feelings, impulses, dreams, imaginings which people have if they don't suppress them, as they are forced to in our society. I hope that in some way explains my decision regarding making everything I do available online. I don't make music for anyone other than myself, though it makes me very happy to share it with others if they get some pleasure from it.
I've been feeling very uncomfortable about the status of music which is made in this way as property or product, and so this is the best way I can think of to sidestep that and allow people to hear what I do in the most open and honest way possible. The quote mentioned in the above introduction: This is not intended as a defense or some such thing, but rather a simple expression of my feelings.
I make music because I need to, out of an innate requirement, which I believe is somewhere in all of us. I would do this every day whether anyone else was listening or not, as important as eating and sleeping. I don't do this in order to make "product"; the only reason I record it or make it available is in the hopes that others may feel something of what I feel in the moment of creation.
Since the beginning of humanity's existence up until the onset of our modern, deadening world, all art has been a beautiful, communal, all encompassing, sacred and cenral part of people's lives, existing in an unbroken, ever shifting tradition back to our first ancestors.
