My label, 7 Deadly Records welcomes the incredibly talented Seazo to the team. The “Flush” single will be released on a pay-what-you-want basis through Bandcamp on May 28th, 2012. I talk with him about his many music projects below! And if you’re in Everett tonight, I’ll be playing at Jade Garden. This set will feature Minerva, Artek, Admin, James Arctic, Cedaa, Seazo, Kid Smpl and Mirror State, all artists recently featured on Disco Droppings.
DD Hello Johan, how are you?
S Hi mate! I’m fine, thank you for asking.
DD You’ve been very busy over there in Norway. Could you talk a bit about some of your recent projects?
S That’s true, I’ve been working on a lot of projects these days. One of them includes a new binaural track. I’ve been taking binaural recordings of smashing lightbulbs, screws and bolts and other fun stuff in an empty subway station, in order to achieve a vast natural reverb and atmosphere. I’ve been working on that track for months now, and are still only halfway through, due to lack of time and some really complex sound editing.
Besides of that, I’ve also entered the VJ field, where I’ve experienced a lot of new opportunities and inspiration. It gives me the ability to create artistic animations, and even control them live, which I think is awesome. It started with some custom 3D effects for my friends Lemâitre’s scene sculptures. Unfortunately we haven’t been able to shoot some good films of it yet, but there is a teaser out there:
and a small paper-version test..
I also did VJ effects for a metafusion event, which was really fun to do..
And like that wasn’t time consuming enough, I’ve also started to explore M4L, where you are able to program/patch your own scripts, synths, and plugins in Ableton Live. It’s a really great future, and I’m planning to patch up a Live set for this summer, where I want to achieve a flexible “make music on the fly” setup, connected with my APC40, MPD32 & a Launchpad.
It’s even possible to “rewire” M4L with Resolume (VJ software) which means that I might be able to do a Visuals+music show at the same time in the future =]
DD Me and you and have talking back and forth for a while now, preparing your “Flush” single for release on 7 Deadly Records. I’ve played the track out at my show with Car Crash Set a little while ago, and plan to also include in my two hour set on 5.5. Such an expansive and energetic production! How would you describe the style and feel of this track?
S I’m really happy to read that you like my productions mate. For me, Flush feels like a sky-blue, frosty track, and I think it welds some of my very old trance productions well together with my new glitchy sound.
DD 7 Deadly will also release an EP from you sometime in the near future, how is that coming along? What do you hope to present with this collection of songs?
S I have no idea of when and what that will be. I just follow what inspires me, which has always been unpredictable.
DD Last words?
S Keep up the good work mate, wish you all good!
