Iderdown Interview on Nagamag

.


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

Iderdown:
I like to think of it as leftfield music, influenced by a wide array of genres. They all get blended together when I start writing, so any track at any time will be a mixture of noise, prog, post-rock, ambient, drone, glitch, trance, industrial and breakbeat.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Iderdown:
Well, I was in an industrial band in high school and at the same time playing around with screamtracker. This was followed by some indie rock years in bands and toying with 4-track bedroom lo-fi songwriting. I started releasing my instrumental electronic music as iderdown in 2003 and continue to work on diverse projects like the dark folk band Within and playing as part of the drone collective Cosmic Homeostasis.


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

Iderdown:
I have been making melodies in my head for long as I can remember and grew up in a house full of music but the first time I heard the songs that made me want to create was during high school, where I was lucky to have a group of friends who explored strange worlds of music.


Nagamag:
Tell me about your latest release?

Iderdown:
iderdown's last release was a collaboration ep with Arcane Trickster called Snowbird. It's an ambient soundtrack for a tranquil shore.


Nagamag:
What's coming up in the future for iderdown?

Iderdown:
A five track Lp of Ambient music that I wrote mostly inspired by the music of Peter Namlook. There will also be a companion set of remixes by Tempest Recording and Slice Records artists.


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

Iderdown:
Japanese Breakfast "Posing In Bondage"


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

Iderdown:
BVDUB "Never In The Prison Of Their Stars"

Banco de Gaia Interview on Nagamag

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

Banco de Gaia:
World dance, global, ambient, trance, techno, dub


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Banco de Gaia:
I started out playing drums in rock bands then moved on to guitar. In the 80's I was playing jazz and listening to world music then discovered acid house and became immersed in electronic dance music. Since 1989 I've been writing, recording and performing as Banco de Gaia and I'm not sure if I'll ever stop!


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

Banco de Gaia:
I saw Hawkwind performing Silver Machine on TV when I was 6 or 7. Lots of strobes and smoke and a man with long hair, I thought 'that's what I want to do'.


Nagamag:
Why is world music so imprtant to you?

Banco de Gaia:
I love combining sounds from different countries and cultures, it constantly amazes me that music from wildly different places can share the same basic heart. Music really is a universal language.


Nagamag:
What have you been working on recently?

Banco de Gaia:
I just released a two-track single 'Pirates and Princes' as part of New York Times reporter Ian Urbina's 'Outlaw Ocean' project. He has been travelling the seas documenting what goes on out in international waters where no laws apply. It's pretty grim at times but it's important to spotlight the crimes that are going on out there, and incorporating his reporting into music has been a fascinating mission.


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

Banco de Gaia:
Yes "Going For The One"


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

Banco de Gaia:
William Orbit "Water from a Vine Leaf"
