NEW POLYGRAPH VICTIM
-Hello I am Dr Gregori Arvar.Running the polygraph iterview, I am also the hobby shrink.I will in this episode take on the man behind deeper levels of vibration in the band.
Hi mr Gunnar!
I've heard that you got an anti plectrum personality. Can you explain that a bit deeper for the ordinary normal person?
I like the sound of plectrum bass on some songs but i do not master it myself. Plectrums also make you confined in a less dynamic landscape. Honestly ,i suck on it and hate it ”because i have reasons” haha.
You also have a engineering personality incorporated under the skin.Tell me about the flying V and how you went from that strange object to become a fiddler of the fat strings!
I like to fix things that are broken. I also like to improve stuff. The later is the main driver i guess. The ”V” is my teenage project and still is the meanest guitar build on the planet. But electric guitar is a ”plectrum thing” and i hate it ”because i have reasons” haha
Did you throw away the keys to the board,we haven't seen you being the nervous dentist on the black and white teeths latly,why?
I am still doing it in the shadows of night. I recently bought new portable keys and a new samlper. Beware!!
You are also involved in the critical process of mastering the bands productions. Isn't that to compare with the sensitive and expensive nose of the sniffer at a perfume laboratory? Tell us all about it!
Mixing and mastering is a great joy. Lately Stefan has delivered mixed material so i kind of focused on mastering and final touch-up. It has been a good ”second opinion workflow” for us and it helps not being involved in the mixing part when you have to focus on the big picture. I do sometimes hear things that is bettet fixed in the mix and songs tend to bounce between us for that reason in the finalizing process.
INTERVIEW BY HOBBY SHRINK
This is a short hearing of mr Stefan. Done under the influence of a special serum and with the polygraph running at the maximum level.
I am phd Dr Gregori Arvar aka the hobby shrink.-He He let us begin.
You writing new material for the new album, what are you up to right now?
Well I'm working on a couple of new songs for the upcoming release at the same time as I am mixing some new versions of the two bundles of songs we released last year.
-Can you tell us about your creative operation , how do you begin?
My working process can start anywhere. Sometimes with a guitar lick, a song melody or an instrumental piece. I don't work from start to end but like a jigsaw. I can start with the end for example,then the chorus, the song verses and maybe an instrumental part in the middle. If I lose inspiration for the project I leave it to rest and continue with another.
-Hm.. I see,divided and do not know where to begin. And in this confused puzzle you also add some lyrics, is this procedure similar or more like a sudoko ?
I usually write the lyrics after the song melody is accomplished. I get inspiration to the words from the mood of the music and I often use a bank of words and sentences that I've stored on my computer.
-A bank of words!so clever,I guess you're lending out from this special word stock with a good amount of interest.
Thanks for your time, no more questions,or let me put it this way. I'm not sure which words that are under control by the word bank of the man in question.So I better stop before my dept to this bank makes me speechless.
I will be back with a new victim under the polygraph Very soon.
