Hello, how are you?
I am fine.
Time has dissolved and weeks are passing by.
I experience moments of intense nostalgia, sadness but also joy and comfort.
Where are you right now?
In the apartment in Vienna.
I am longing to get to Berlin,
but I am afraid I couldn’t travel back to Vienna.
Usually I am on the road.
Which sounds surround you?
I found a nice Japanese radio station
Mostly Jazz, i am not guaranteeing a good music selection 24/7.
As i listened though, it gave me chills.
Have you been productive so far? What are you working on?
It happened, that there is something to work on for the music every week.
I made some mixes and also played live sessions for streaming.
“Getting lost in cyberspace is even more frustrating and sad right now.”
Also university is still ongoing,
I am having a hard time staying concentrated during the zoom meetings,
but it gives you also some impulses for different topics.
What inspires you right now?
I am watching a lot of classics,
but also low budget movies, I do some research on that.
Hanging around in the cyberspace with research attempt is inspiring.
Getting lost in cyberspace is even more frustrating and sad right now.
Reading material you can recommend?
Issue of Texte für Kunst about property is very well fitting to the current situation.
I am reading essays of C.G Jung next to Ursula K. Le Guin, a nice combo.
Two of my favorite mixes ever that protect me
Latency · Suleiman @ Vor Frue Church, Copenhagen
What’s your opinion on live-streams? You see any alternative ways to support the music community?
I did two streams from home and one at DasWerk for the Arte concerts series.
Changing the places is one of the joys playing out,
and it is missing big time.
I don’t want us getting used to the streaming,
because so many things are getting lost with it.
It has been treating me well, because I had something to prepare,
some adrenalin and effort, but there was very little payment involved.
What are you missing most? What are you afraid of?
I miss changing locations, in every small sense.
Different rooms, walls and objects.
Senses have changed, compressed due to the situation,
touch and exchange of expressions is what I am missing hard.
My fears are dear to me, I don’t share them.
What will change you think?
The situation is just unfolding the defects of our system that we built.
What is the gig or occasion you were most looking for, that was cancelled in this period?
On the 24th April my debut album „Votive“ would have been released with a tour around it.
I was looking forward to play the first time in cities like Warzwa, Copenhagen and Donaufestival is really sad.
But most of it got rescheduled.
Are you still able to pay your rent?
Not from any income right now but own savings.
