Sounds from underground/File N°003

It's cracked. It's addicting. It's Filthy Little Star. Get it as it's better than most of music you listen.

0. name of the band
Filthy Little Star
1. where are you from?
Hobart, Tasmania 
2. what kind of instruments/equipment you use?
Wind instruments (ocarina, clarinet, whistles etc.), Stringed instruments (viola, hurdy, guitar, lap harp etc.), percussive instruments (bells, glock, tambourine, shakers etc.) + other instruments (circuit bent toys, singing saw, spinning tube etc.) 
3. what do you think about the music context nowadays and how you place yourself in? do you feel a part of any scene?
Hobart is strange with its music scene. Sort of like all the animals escaped from the zoo and started bands. Everyone is really different. 
4. which is your method of composition?
My methods of composition will generally depend on a chosen or allocated concept. I then use a broad influence of music to pin what vibe I wish to set. I then experiment with sound textures, and the rest is autonomous. 
5. how is your recording approach? do you use some particular record technique?
With recording I am sure to try something different every time. If not to simply learn more, I do this because the production of a track must match the aesthetic of the composition. For most projects I am likely to use a handy recorder (the zoom h6), which can be used as a multi input interface. 
6. do you play live? how public react to your music?
Until recently live shows have been where the rest of the band step in. As a result of adapting pieces to suit the band context, the pieces sound much different. We deliberately have lots of faces, it depends on who is free to do what show. This means the crowds seem to be confused by us changing consistently. It's great fun. 
7. Genesis P-Orridge said "Our records were documents of attitudes and experiences and observations by us and other determinedly individual outsiders. Fashion was an enemy, style irrelevant.". What do your records represent to you?
I feel as though there are a lot of musical artists who do what they do for different reasons. To me, the 8 or so albums on our site represent some kind of mapping of confusion.
