Militant _ Interview with REALMZ
Money – haha – That seems even more relevant now, with the recent visit by Superstorm Sandy. Did Pittsburgh get any of it?
Sandy didn’t have much of an impact here, just a few days of normal rain and a lot of wet leaves on the ground but I have friends in New York that were effected pretty heavily… going without electricity for almost a week.
Well – back to the music Mate. Left to my devices got a great reaction from everyone. That must have been brilliant – What do your friends and family think of what you do? Any new releases or remixes coming up?
Some of my friends also make music or have some other form of creative outlet so they’re supportive. On the other hand I tend to work in secrecy a lot of the time. I’m just away in the studio devising new creations. I hope to have some material ready to put out fairly soon, but no remixes at the moment, no.
That’s one of the reasons why the Realmz name.. and the game of the same name resonated with me. It’s perfect for the sort of double life people have with music and “reality” sometimes haha. I think it’s hard to share with people exactly what you do sometimes, especially now with the internet.. as it can be sort of private..
Hmmm it’s hard to say really, I’ve met some great people through networking online but I’m still not very good at turning my focus to the promotional aspect of music. I’m much more at home away from the rest of the world devising and concocting things in the lab. At the same time I like to get out of my comfort zone sometimes so getting out there more and promoting myself, playing out etc. is a part of that.
