and now it's time for our classical interview
0. name of the band
ILD I DIT ANSIGT, which is ”fire in your face” or ”your face on fire” in danish.
1. where are you from?
2. what kind of instruments/equipment you use?
Every object we can get our hands on which produces an interesting sound.
Often toys. As for conventional instruments we have used guitars with
various effect-pedals, looping pedals and Korg volca synthesizers.
3. what do you think about the music context nowadays and how you place yourself in? do you feel a part of any scene?
We definitely owe a lot to the underground noise, shitcore and performance art
scene in Aahus, which has inspired us and allowed for some fun
4. which is your method of composition?
Improvisation. We are never able to repeat anything we to. But we think a lot about the visual composition of our performances.
5. how is your recording approach? do you use some particular record technique?
We record with phones, cameras, PCs. One advantage is that they are
mobile. We sometimes edit improvisations into sound-collages.
6. do you play live? how public react to your music?
Yes. Right now, we are mainly a live-act. A lot of our stuff has not
been documented or recorded. People react very differently. It also depends
on what we do.
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?
Love Gen P. and TOPY. Our performances are rituals. What we do is daDa-ist guerilla-warfare.
thanks to the band for all the material
