You should Review: “Alone Wolf”

Un lobo es un coleccionista de huesos en la simbología arquetípica. Los huesos representan la fuerza indestructible. En el mito y la historia, representan el espíritu del alma indestructible. El alma espiritual de un lobo puede ser lesionada, incluso mutilada, pero es casi imposible de matar. Los huesos de lobo representan el aspecto indestructible del ser salvaje, de la naturaleza instintiva, el lobo es la criatura que se dedica a la libertad y lo intocable. Un lobo nunca aceptará los rigores y exigencias de una cultura muerta o excesivamente civilizadora.

 

AloneWolf – The Way Of The Wolf [Music video] from AloneWolf on Vimeo.

alone-wolf

Algunas veces, lo único que quieres es escaparte de donde estás, huir, volar lejos. La ciudad es un espacio abrumador, frenético y extraño. Todo aquel que haya nacido y crecido en una gran metrópolis conoce esa desesperación. La gigantesca urbe nunca carece de identidad, y la música que nace de sus entrañas es igual de compleja que su madre.

Muchos de nosotros hemos vivido vidas de ciudad, una ciudad es un lugar donde la vida es como una selva o un bosque. Es fácil perderse. Puedes ver a una persona en el bosque y nunca volverlo a ver. Cualquier día puede ser el último. La ciudad tiene diferentes personalidades: es valiente, tímido, despistado, procrastinator, feroz, obstinada, etc. Pero lo más importante es que en una ciudad algunos trabajan, otros juegan, mientras que otros duermen. A todo esto me evoca el misterioso EP de Alonewolf, un proyecto originario de Inglaterra del que no he logrado averiguar demasiado. Sin embargo, sus dos creaciones discográficas están disponibles en Bandcamp para escuchar y bajar. Si eres de esos que permanece despierto ya entrada la noche, gozas de filmes con un aura distópica-noir-scifi a la Blade Runner y quisieras vivir en un universo Cyberpunk, probablemente quedarás inmerso en los sintetizadores de Alonewolf.

El segundo álbum The Way Of the Wolf”, que apenas fue revelado este 2014, es un desfile de épica oscura y sintética, una atmósfera urbana pero con aires de fantasía que salen a relucir de manera constante. Las cinco piezas que integran The Way of The Wolf” crean al menos en mi cabeza la sensación de ir manejando en madrugada, a alta velocidad con las luces de una ciudad, hundiéndose en el horizonte. Dan ganas de subir a todo lo que da del estéreo, para no perderse en ningún momento de sus estruendosas líneas de bajo. Por momentos, las melodías se transforman en un himno nostálgico, como observar un atardecer decadente en gamas de rojo y púrpura.

La rareza de discos como este reside en el enigma de su origen y su ausencia en la cada vez más grande y activa” escena de la música electrónica internacional; el arte de la portada es cruda y simple, realizada por Lee Kislingbury acentúa el carácter honesto de su creador, al igual que su interés por ese sentimiento onírico que resulta ser tan hipnotizante. La consistencia en la forma musical de este disco, es una frase casi-imposible para describir este proyecto, su fuerza es su adaptación a los cambios, su innovación es su aullido, su profunda vida instintiva, su fuego creativo. Esta música no muestra consistencia a través de la uniformidad, sino más bien a través de su vida creativa, sus percepciones, hipermetropía-rápida, su flexibilidad y destreza.

Si te encuentras en una búsqueda perpetua de nuevos sonidos y te gusta la música electrónica, este descubrimiento puede ser para ti.

You should interview: “Alexandra Zaharieva”

alexa_n

The experience of traveling on a plane would certainly not be the same without the presence of flight attendants or assistants of flight, a task that in the middle of the last century was synonymous with rebellion and glamour, now is currently a difficult profession given the number of hours they spend away from home. But perhaps of that, there are several people who enjoy the tripp and love the free life. So here we are, we introduce you a curious, passionate and disciplined cool girl from Bulgaria looking for new emotions… she is what we call a real traveler.

I: Tell us your real name and who is ALEXANDRA ZAHARIEVA?

Alexandra Zaharieva: Alexandra Zaharieva is my real and fake name. I am a flight attendant by day and night. Making mixtapes  is what I do in my free time. I travel a lot and it has helped me discover different cultures and their unique beauty. My work requires me to be very strict and disciplined, so I don’t have much room to express my feelings and emotions. I’m a very naturally curious person and I love exploring new things.  I love the art of living and variety, is something I hold In high regard. It’s good that we live in a time where you are able to express every aspect of yourself and pursue different hobbies.

I: Where are you from?

AZ: I was born in Sofia, Bulgaria. It’s a small but colorful country that’s never boring in all four seasons and can keep you hooked.

I: What is your most treasured memory as a child being a Musician?

AZ: My most treasured memory would be when I used to play piano when I was a child. It was very hard for me to be honest but everyone kept telling me I was good at it, so I kept at it. The piano was clearly not enough for me, so I took up modern ballet. At one point I ended up having too many concerts and I had to give it up and be fabulous instead. :D

I: What is the purpose of make this kind of music instead something else genre?

AZ: I don’t have a specific purpose, it’s more of a way to express myself as a person. They are so many sub-genres in the music today. The music is ever-changing and producers are always innovating.

I: Tell us about your daily inspirations…

AZ: I like that music unites people of all religions and cultures or color. My friends are my daily inspiration, and last but not least, love and romance.

photo(2)

I: Mention at least 8 artist that you admire it most?

AZ: As photographers I’d say Helmut Newton and Annie Leibovitz. My favorite designer/architect is Karim Rashid. Favorite painters would be Sandro Botticelli. Zaha Hadid is also a favorite architect. Diego Velasquez. For musicians I’d place Madonna, she’s not a musician but more of an institution. In terms of fashion design I’d place Vivienne Westwood. At the moment Tensnake, Moon Boots, Satin Jackets, and many more…

I: Do you prefer digital materials or analog materials?

AZ: Definitely digital because it’s the age of technology.

alexa5

I: Do you have a cool radio station you want to share?

AZ: DI.FM, ibizaglobalradio.com, DFR.FM

I: What gifts did you receive on your last birthday?

AZ: I got hand-made earrings in my favorite color pink from my best friend and a Vivienne Westwood necklace.

I: What is your favorite food? 

AZ: I recently tried Pakistani cuisine and I was pleasantly surprised. However, I try to taste all sorts of cuisines but my favorites would be Italian, Turkish and Japanese.

I: Are you planning to make a tour soon in México? What places would you like to meet of this country? 

AZ: I would love to visit Mexico and I’ve heard great things about Cancún.

I:  Is there something you want to share with our audience?

AZ: I’m very concerned with the recent political events and I think that people should start to think in less hostile terms. More focus should be put on diplomacy, politics and society rather than economic and corporate interests. In other words make love not war.

alexa33_n

I: What do you think about emerging talents is there enough platforms to spread all this cool music world?

AZ: New talents definitely need more support and incentive.

I: Were we can watch & listen your work?

As I said, it’s not something I do professionally, so you can find my work in soundcloud, so I hope you enjoy it!

Thank you so much for this interview Alexa!

You should interview: “Kučka”

KUCKA_o

An eclectic combination of delicate, ambient sounds, industrial glitches and captivating vocal layering structured with heavy bass and erratic beats. KUCKA Music transcends from alluring and soft textures to melancholic darkness, focusing on melody and subjective beauty. An aural surrealist, KUCKA´s music hypnotic compositions lull the mind into faraway and blissfully strange realms.

I: Tell us your real name and who is KUCKA?

KUCKA: My real name is Laura Jane Lowther, but I adopted Kučka as my moniker after my Serbian friend started calling me it when we were teenagers. I create electronic music, often bordering on Pop and R&B but also on the more experimental end of the spectrum.

I: Where are you from?

K: I’m originally from Liverpool in the UK, but have been living in Perth (Western Australia) for close to 10 years now. It’s actually the most isolated capital city on the planet so it has been perfect for harbouring creativity.

KUCKA1_n
I: Since when you notice dat you had blood for being a Musician?

K: I have always been interested in music, when I was a child I always loved attending dance classes, starting with ballet then moving to newer styles. The best thing about the ballet classes was that there was an old lady who would provide the music every week on an upright piano. The classes we’re in a church so the sound of the piano was really reverberant and all of the harmonics were really rich.

I: What is the purpose of make this kind of music instead something else genre?

K: I am naturally drawn to electronic sounds, I love deep bass sounds the most, and the richness of analog synths. It’s also a medium where you can easily experiment and integrate organic sounds, so there are so many opportunities to explore and invent.

I: Tell us about your daily inspirations…

K: I am influenced by everyday sounds a lot. I often sample the sounds of birds, insects around light sources, electrical buzzing etc. I also live with a bunch of musicians so their work is always influencing me on a daily basis!

I: Do you have any ideology in your life mixed with your work, that you want to share with us?

K: I guess I’m always trying to create a mood or imagery for the listener (and myself). With the production especially I am exploring the shapes and textures created by the synths and samples together. I’m really interested in synesthesia and how sounds interact with other senses.

I: What elements do you use for your work?

K: Mostly I use Ableton live as my software, along with synths, samples of percussion or natural sounds and my vocals.

I: Mention at least 8 artist that you admire it most?

K: David Lynch, Annette Messager, Pina Bausch, Grace Barbe, Mei Saraswati, Lars von Trier.

KUCKA9_o

KUCKA6_n

KUKCK12n

I: What was the last concert you saw?  

K: A local gig featuring an artist called Grace Barbe. She is a singer and bass player originally from Seychelles and she writes amazing Afro creole music. The rhythms are amazing with lots of fast cross rhythms and percussion, and an amazing groove.

I: Do you prefer digital materials or analog materials?

K: I like digital interfaces, but analog sounds! For example working on a laptop and using Ableton makes writing very quick, but I like to record analog synths and drum machines into it. I have been building my collection of analog synths for the past few years, I love the fatness of the sounds. My favourites are my Prophet 6 and my Moog Voyager.

I: Do you have a cool radio station u want to share?

K: RTR fm  92.1 is my local community station and they play some amazing music. They are especially supportive of local music and they have played a big part in helping me get started. Also FBI radio in Sydney is great too!

I: What gifts did you receive on your last birthday?

K: I received a wicked bar fridge for my studio from my boyfriend and his mum. It’s so cool, when I’m working and I can just reach down and grab a refreshing rum and coconut water!!

I: What is your favorite food?

K: I like anything hot and spicy. My favourite dish is coconut prawns with papaya salad and lots of chilli.

I: Are you planning to make a tour soon in México? What places would you like to meet of this country?

K: I would love to tour to Mexico, it’s on my list of places to visit, but it’s soooo far away I need to get some $$$ first.

KUCKA7_n

I: What do you think about emerging talents is there enough platforms to spread all this cool music world?

K: Things like soundcloud make it easy and cheap to upload music to a wide audience whether you live in LA or a small village in a rural community so it’s definitely easier to get your music in a public forum than it was previously, which makes it awesome for emerging artists.

Thank you so much for this interview Laura***

You should interview: “BEN MACKLIN”

Processed with VSCOcam with x1 preset

Schooled by the pioneers of electronic music, Ben came to prominence originally as one half of Sucker DJ’s. Mixing disco, house and electronica together – Ben & Stretch toured extensively and received acclaim for their distinctive style. His Cassette Club project has received acclaim since their 2009 debut on Eye Industries, and after their first single, he went on to remix Passion Pit, Taio Cruz, Natalie Imbruglia and Florence & The Machine. With tracks and remixes on his own Modal imprint, as well as a Cassette Club Album in 2014, Ben also continues to play live sets across Europe, and plays at his various residencies in the UK.

Indamagazine: Tell us your real name and who is BEN MACKLIN? Tell us about your collaboration in MODAL RECORDINGS…

BEN MACKLIN: Modal is my own label which I initially started 2 years ago so I could release one of our Cassette Club tracks – ‘Flash’. Ive been signed to a lot of labels in the past and wanted more control over how my music was released and managed. Im quite particular about how my music, artwork and videos are presented, and having your own output for releases gives you that control. Since then ive managed to get some of my favourite artists to remix tracks for the label, and we’ve got a lot more to come which is exciting.

I: Where are you from?

BM: Im from Kent, which is just outside London in the UK.

I: What is your most treasured memory as a child being a Musician?

BM: Musically ive always been into electronic music, so I had keyboard lessons when I was young. I don’t know If that’s a thing anymore, but it was different to piano lessons as it was more about chords, progressions and patterns. I didn’t last very long as I got bored of playing basic chords every week, but I would always sit at my keyboard and try and work out how to play tracks I liked.

I: Since when you notice that you had blood for being a Musician?

BM: I’ve really only been interested in the production side of music, even though I can play keyboards. We always had instruments around the house when I was young, so never thought being in music was something you couldn’t do.

I: What is the purpose of make this kind of music instead something else genre?

BM: Most of my favourite music is either House/Soul/Electronic, so most of my tracks combine those elements somewhere. The good thing about the way the music industry is now, is that there are so many sub genres. If I want to make a 100bpm track I can, without worrying about where it fits. I think usually people can hear a common thread through my tracks sound wise.

I: Do you have any ideology in your life mixed with your work, that you want to share with us?

BM: I always want to produce something that I like listening to, that isn’t tainted by what other people might like. Ironically that usually means you make something other people WILL like. People can tell if you’re trying to please someone else.

I: What elements do you use for your work?

BM: I don’t use any hardware these days, I like to be able to work anywhere and always find analog synths slow me down, even though they sound great. A lot of plug ins are so good now that you don’t need a lot of outboard.

I: Do you prefer digital materials or analog materials?

BM: Im a big fan of digital, purely because ive never really used analog gear. I like the sound you get from analog gear, but equally I like the clean sound of digital.

I: Mention at least 8 artist that you admire it most? 

BM: The artists I admire most and inspire me are Michael Jackson, Daft Punk, Prince, Jam & Lewis, Quincy Jones. At the moment some of my favourites are Classixx, Moon Boots, Todd Terje & Tensnake.

picsquare
I: Are you planning to make a tour soon in México? What places would you like to meet of this country?

BM: Ive always wanted to come to Mexico obviously, hopefully I’ll get the chance soon.

I: What do you think about emerging talents is there enough platforms to spread all this cool music world?

BM: There are so many platforms to spread new music globally, its just a case of how to get it to people. I think that usually if your work is any good, people will get to know about it, and will share it between themselves. You can find people that like your music or genre, much more so than 20 years ago.

I: Where we can watch & listen your work?

BM: You can listen to my music on

Indatrend: “Marta Bevacqua”

M15

Marta Bevacqua es una joven fotógrafa italiana que actualmente vive y trabaja en París, su talento ha ganado reconocimiento en diversos medios y una carrera profesional prometedora. Encontré su trabajo hace varios ayeres, mientras vagaba por la red y su manera de capturar el mundo me cautivó para siempre.

Inclusive fue uno de los motivos, por los que incursioné seriamente en la fotografía…

M14

M24

M20

La fotografía de Marta es emocional, onírica y atmosférica; sus retratos despiden un halo cinematográfico, como el fragmento de una historia de fantasía, una carta que se perdió en el camino. La figura central del trabajo de Marta es el cuerpo femenino, y a través de su ojo fotográfico, introduce al espectador al mundo del sujeto retratado, donde incontables cuentos parecen florecer.

M4

M26

M27

La expresión corporal asume el papel principal y Marta se ha vuelto una experta en retratarla, la inspiración es contagiosa, y como algunas veces sucede con el retrato, las imágenes de Marta suelen carecer de un tiempo o lugar específico… Podría ser aquí, podría ser allá, podría ser un sueño o una memoria neblinosa. París protagoniza una parte considerable de su trabajo más reciente y Marta conserva un ambiente misterioso y melancólico; los bosques, habitaciones y ciudades que podemos ver en sus fotos parecen ser parte de una película de romance nostálgico.

M17

M12

M19

M6

M21

Marta retrata a las personas bajo varios enfoques, ha trabajado para revistas como POSE Magazine y Noctis sin dejar a un lado la parte más personal de su visión, en la que constantemente observamos ninfas enigmáticas de miradas hechiceras, bailando en el eterno misterio del universo fotográfico de su creadora, quien juega con la noción de lo mágico y lo sobrenatural.

M22

M7

M26

En este sentido, la obra de Marta se centra más en lo estético que en lo conceptual, pero la sinceridad de sus imágenes resulta tan intrigante que parecen contar historias por sí mismas, y es en estos relatos efímeros donde reside la esencia de sus fotografías.

You should interview: “Alison Avron”

Meet Alison Avron a singer, songwriter and a piano player. She grew up in rural South Australia and amused herself by singing in community choirs and touring with opera companies.

IMG_7649

Once she was old enough to drive and enroll at university she moved to Canberra to study music. However, an institution could not hold down this fiercely independent girl so she dropped out and started writing songs and doing gigs of her own. In her own description of music she believes its more 85% Emotional 15% Logical. Lightly manic yet completely loveable, witty and nonchalant you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone like Alison Avron. Follow our next itw we made to this sweet and sparkly girl.

Indamagazine: Tell us your real name and who is Alison?

Alison: 

My real name is Alison Avron Flett, but I use Alison Avron as my stage name. I sing, play piano, write songs and also run my 50 capacity music venue, The Newsagency in Sydney NSW, Australia. I’ve been singing since I was about 9 years old and feel very lucky to say that I do what I love everyday.

I: Where are you from?

AA: I am from Glencoe, South Australia. But I have lived in Sydney, Australia for 6 years now.

I: What is your most treasured memory as a child of being a musician?

AA: I was heavily involved in a community choir, the Southern Heritage Singers, from about the age of 9. I have great memories of getting on a bus to sing in regional parts of Australia for opera companies and various other events with a bunch of people who were, and still are to this day for that matter, like family to me.

I: When did you notice that being a musician was in your blood?

AA: My nana was a very talented violinist, and I think I have some long lost great great uncle who wrote musicals on my mum’s side so I suppose it’s been in my blood for years!

alison4_

I: Tell us about your daily inspirations…

AA: I’m going through a bit of a tough time at the minute. My mother sadly passed away of brain cancer as well as other complications from her surgery about 6 weeks ago. She has and always be will be my biggest inspiration but daily, they are very much changing as I grow through my grief and sadness.
At the moment, I am inspired by the beauty of nature. Whether it is watching the sunset, thinking about the metamorphosis of a butterfly or walking through a beautiful park. I’m turning into a hippy before my very eyes and it feels wonderful.

I: Mention at least 8 artist that you admire it most?

AA: I really admire a lot of Sydney singer/songwriters like NGAIIRE, Elana Stone and Sarah Belkner but I also love musicians like SIA, Jeff Lynne (Electric Light Orchestra), Freddie Mercury. I love how Haruki Murakami and C.S. Lewis observe the world and I’ve always been inspired by M.Scott Peck’s book, The Road Less Travelled.

IMG_7527(1)

I: What was the last concert you saw?

AA: I just saw Joan as Policewoman. She was INCREDIBLE. I wish I could be as cool as her. Before that it was Melanie Safka which was cool to see a bit of Woodstock history LIVE.

I: Do you have a cool radio station u want to share?

AA: There’s a very supportive and very hip community radio station here in Sydney called Fbi 94.5FM. They play my music and plug my venue a lot so I’ve gotta think they’re cool right? 

I: What is your favorite food?

AA: 
I love Turkish delight, Camembert, my dad’s chocolate self-sauce pudding he makes in the microwave and I also really like broccoli.

I: Are you planning to make a tour soon in México? What places would you like to meet of this country?

AA: If only I had the money and knew how many fans I actually had there! I’d love to – I’ve heard it’s a beautiful country!

I: What do you think about emerging talents is there enough platforms to spread all this cool music world?

AA: We’re very lucky to have the amount of online platforms we have now. Soundcloud, NoiseTrade, Bandcamp, Reverbnation, MySpace, Twitter, Facebook. In some ways there may be too many – perhaps we’re all a little spoilt for choice, but I feel lucky to be able to share my music to a wider audience than just my local one as a result of all these platforms.
