Tine Surel Lange - A Great Ear For Sound

One of the more creative and distinctive sound-art/ manipulated field records to appear in recent times was this year’s Works For Listening 1-10. Released by the always worthy Sofa Music, the album sits somewhere between atmospherically manipulated field recordings and electro-acoustic texturing- be it alien, ambient or slightly manic. And most surprising of all, it was the debut album of young Norwegian composer and sound artists Tine Surel Lange. I tracked down Tine for an email interview, discussing her wonderful debut, her love of sound, and much more
 


theNightproduct - Walled Noise Born From Shadows & Dread

One of the more chillingly atmospheric textured/ walled noise projects to appear in the last 10 or so years is theNightproduct. Behind it is respected US noise artists Sean E. Ramirez-Matzus, solo -Thewhitehorse, A Week Of Kindness, Red Hook, and projects with his husband Richard Ramirez Black Leather Jesus and Last Rape. theNightproduct has been active since 2012, only releasing 6 releases thus far- but it’s very much quality over quantity, with all of it’s back catalogue been up to a very high standard and damn creepy to boot too!. Sean kindly agreed to give me an interview from his home in rural Pennsylvania


Martyn Bates / Kodax Strophes interview - A Strange Sonic Solstice

Active since the late 1970s, Martyn Bates is one of the more distinctively creative figures to appear from the British post-industrial/ experimental scene of the period. He’s most known as one half of Eyeless In Gaza- who blended off-kilter English pop, post-punk, new wave, and more. He’s been sonically active pretty much constantly throughout the last 40 plus years, and his most recent venture is Kodax Strophes- which nods back/ connects with his early sonic dabblings of the ’70s. The project has just recently put out its debut release It Doesn't Matter Where It's Solstice When You’re In The Room on Klanggalerie, and it’s a wonderful unbalancing record that mixes ambience, psychedelic electronica, field recordings, and general experimental texturing.  I tracked down Martyn for an email interview.


David Gregory - In The Land Of Franco- Jess Franco On Severin

One of the most prolific, versatile, compellingly distinct, and at points artily creative directors to appearing from euro-exploitation was Jess Franco. Between the 1950s and the 2010’s, he directed over 200 films- with these running the gamut of genre cinema-going from black and white gothic horror, exotic horror, Women In Prison films, surreal and dread tinged softcore, jungle adventures, Zombie films, cannibal pictures, and slashers. In recent years many Franco films have received reissues- one of the more extra focused and classy reissues of Franco’s work has been Severin, to date they released nineteen of his films, with more planned this year. We tracked down one of Severin’s co-owners David Gregory(who has also interviewed Jess many times) to discuss the labels Franco releases.


Root Cellar, Monolithic Torment, & Submachine Gun - Walls For Sleaze, Moody Landscapes, & Gun-Play

Cory Adieen is an American trans-gender noisemaker, who has been creating some of the more impressive and entrancing walled noise I’ve heard in some time. Cory is behind projects such as Root Cellar, Monolithic Torment, and Submachine Gun. She kindly agreed to give M[m] an email interview.


Patrick Picard - Geek-bound fear ‘n’ dread

Recently released via Arrow Video The Bloodhound stands as one of the more classy, distinctive, and subtle uneasy psychological thrillers to appear in some years. The films based loosely on Edgar Allan Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher. It focusing in on Jean-Paul Luret(Joe Adler)- an awkward, rich & glum twenty-something man, who lives with his largely unseen sister, in a glass, wood & grey blinded secluded large house.  He’s visited by his school friend Francis (Liam Aiken) - who is equally awkward, though slightly more devious. The film slow, but surely unfolds blending together creepy awkwardness & lulling unease. It nods back to grim and troubled thriller/ horror films of the 1970s, with a side order of early 2000’s awkward geek-ness- which is what makes the whole thing so distinct.  Most impressively this is the debut feature from LA-based Patrick Picard- who wrote and directed the film. After been most taken by The Bloodhound we arranged an email interview with Patrick, and below you'll find said interview- where he discusses not only his chilling debut film, but art and music- both his own & others.
