Rock Features

.


Nagamag:
Which are the genres that describe your music style better?

MUDIE:
Grew up listening to glam rock and punk, but also really into hip hop and electronic music. Trying to write the best possible song, with the coolest melody, without copying anyone, while using orginal sound signature and still feel punk. Hard shit.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

MUDIE:
Been playing in bands and writing music since 1999. Played more than 2000, released almost 40 albums, been around the world alot and still enjoy it.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

MUDIE:
I think Bon Jovi were the first people that i've seen and think '' damn, they're so cool, I wanna do this! ". I used to sing Bon Jovi songs in the mirror all the time and trying to look cool with sleeveless shirt, fake tattoos and sunglasses at a VERY young age, like 5 or 6. Feels pretty good to actually to this for a living, in a VERY smallest scale.


Nagamag:
What d'you do beside music for a living.

MUDIE:
I do art in general. I draw, I paint, I design stuff for other people. Write songs for other people, produce albums and beats. Write poems and articles. I like to create things. It's very cool for me to have numerous projects and go through them as time passes and realize I just did a bunch of shit that people can either love, hate or don't care about. I also organize a big punk festival in Montreal called Pouzza Fest. It's gonna be the 10th edition when we can do festivals again.


Nagamag:
What would have been your dream job besides making art ?

MUDIE:
Professional athlete. I was a pretty good hockey player and kind of got a shot at it, but looking back, i would have loved to be a baseball player. I like the slow pace of baseball. The camaraderie. The fact that you play outside, the beautiful stadiums and uniforms. Definately would have loved every second of it.


Nagamag:
Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

MUDIE:
Omnikrom "Meilleur Gars"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which is the track from a similar artist you admire?

MUDIE:
Lost Love "Hell"

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Periklis Biskinis:
Συνθέτω σε ένα πεδίο Rock-Jazz-Latin με προτίμηση στον ελληνικό στίχο όπου θεωρώ ότι συντονίζομαι συναισθηματικά και νοητικά.

(I compose in a Rock-Jazz-Latin field with a preference for Greek lyrics where I find myself emotionally and mentally attuned.)


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Periklis Biskinis:
Είμαι ένας συνθέτης και καθηγητής μουσικής, συγκεκριμένα φωνητικής και σύγχρονου πιανου και έχω ασχοληθεί με πολλά είδη μουσικής. Ύστερα απο τις κλασσικές μου σπουδές, δίπλωμα κλασσικού πιάνου, κλασσικού τραγουδιού και ανωτέρων θεωρητικών ασχολήθηκα με την Jazz, Jazz ενορχήστρωση πνευστών και εγχόρδων όπως και με την ηχοληψία και την μουσική Τεχνολογία. Διδάσκω 20 χρόνια σύγχρονο τραγούδι και σύγχρονο πιάνο με σκοπό οι μαθητές μου να βίωνουν την ελευθερία έκφρασης της ψυχής τους με γέφυρα την μουσική και τον ήχο. Κάνω παραγωγές σε τραγουδιστές και συνθέτες και συνθέτω, ηχογραφώ και είμαι παραγωγός της δικής μου μουσικής δισκογραφίας. Έχω παίξει σε πάρα πολλές σκήνες στην Αθήνα και σε όλη την Ελλάδα όπως στον Σταυρό του Νότου , Faust, Zoo κτλ Έχω δημιουργήσει με επιτυχία δύο μεγάλες ορχήστρες οι οποίες είναι η Πλαστελίνη και οι Μαντρας.

(I am a composer and music teacher, specifically into vocal and modern piano and I have been involved in many types of music. After my classical studies, diploma in classical piano, classical singing, and advanced theories, I dealt with Jazz, Jazz orchestration of winds and strings as well as sound recording and music technology. I have been teaching contemporary songs and contemporary piano for 20 years in order for my students to experience the freedom of expression of their soul with music and sound as a bridge. I do productions for singers and composers and I do recordings and I am a producer of my own music discography. I have played on many stages in Athens and all over Greece such as Stavros to Notou, Faust, Zoo, etc. I have successfully created two great orchestras which are Plastelini and Mantras.)


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Periklis Biskinis:
Θυμάμαι όταν πήγα να μάθω πίανο στο ωδείο στην ηλικία των 5 ετών. Από τότε η σχέση μου με τον ήχο και τα μουσικά οργάνα ξεκίνησε. Ερωτεύομαι τον πειραματισμό με νέα μουσικά οργάνα και το επιδιώκω να μελετάω καινούργια όργανα μουσικής.

(I remember when I went to learn piano at the conservatory at the age of five. Since then my relationship with sound and musical instruments began. I fall in love with experimenting with new musical instruments and I seek to study them deeper.)

Mick Harvey "Out of time man"
