..This is some downright exceptional electronic music..

INTERVIEW.

1. You also make music under the name “Lubricated Beat”, what prompted the change to “Zomvor”?

Unfortunately, last year I lost lots of data due to chip failure, crash and circuit death. I was even more torn when recorded music was lost on a flight, SUUUUCKED.

But it allowed a reflection and new approach to music. I was able to focus with more live productions & mixes instead of computer junk. I hooked up random gear and came up with a sound I was so pleased with. A new outlet was born. “Zomvor” comes from an intense lucid dream I had which involved a space voyage. I keep hearing “zooooomvoooorrr” in a deep android type voice. I Googled it when I woke up, was conscious and nothing came up! I decided my imagination wanted me to use this name. Ya know our brains use DMT when we dream, eh?

2. How long have you been making electronic music?

I stared fooling around with synths and keyboards back in high-school, so about 6 years.

3. What kind of equipment do you use for your productions? Live shows?

I first began recording 8bit work in Nanoloop 1.3 and LSDJ. From there, I’ve progressed to using drum machines, sequencers, synths, effects pedals to create music.

I use: Yamaha PSR-21, Electribe MX, NL 2.3, Zoom g2.1u, Alesis Air Effex, MicroSyth, lots of filter/effects pedals, Casio PT-50, Behringer XENYX and Ableton for mastering. Live, I usually use a combination of my gear +Roland Groove Box, & Micro Korg.

4. Who are some of your favorite current artists?

Agoria, Deadmau5, Super Flu, but lately…I’ve been heavily listening to Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works…incredible stuff.

5. What are you most excited to work on in 2010?

New upcoming chip-house collaborations. Also getting back into experimental circuit bending 😀
