WeirdMusic.net EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW - Glideascope


- Do you Like/Write Weird Music ??

If weird is a soundclash of Jamaican Dub, Baroque Classical and old skool Hip Hop beats, then YES!!!

- When and where did your experience in music start?

Playing acoustic on a 3 string guitar (only because the other 3 strings had broken) :-)

- What are you currently working on and what are your plans for the rest of the year ?

I am currently working on the promo video for the song "Stop The War" which should be available end of September/October.  The plans for the rest of the year are to work on new material, a possible classical/electronica remix project. 

- What do you consider your greatest inspirational sources in music ?  

Bob Marley, Bach, Vangelis and the innovation of Massive Attack.

- Please describe your personal studio for us...  

Lots of keyboards, digital violin, computers (old and new) and lots of wires that I am still figuring out what goes where...

- What are your favorite readings ? 

At the moment I am enjoying a book called "FREE" by Chris Anderson

- In your opinion, what role does the third sector, public and non- 
  profit entities; have for music on the Internet ? 

I am not that knowledgable on the subject, but I would consider that a non-profit approach to music will likely lead to more interesting and experimental music appealing to a demographic that isn't catered for in the traditional and overtly commercial sense.
