Fly my children – the monster must be destroy-Ed!

November 2, 2013

I’ve never had a manager for my musical output and am not the kind of person who can schmooze his way to success. I don’t believe in kissing the backside of those who I think might help to increase my exposure in the electronic music/sound world. I find it hard to look at my musical output from the outside in – to me it seems sporadic and patchy with a few tunes here and there that I still enjoy. I’m always analysing my own tracks and wishing I could have done this or that better but ultimately, once a track is done and ‘out’, it’s like saying goodbye to an offspring and time to make another one.

So this week, in an attempt to increase my circle of listeners, and to introduce people to my music (which I’ve been making for 30+ years) I’ve paid FB to bring traffic to this page. Only a very small amount but without a manager, there is not much I can do to push it out there and spread the virus.

In the long distant past, I would have sent cassettes out to fanzines and later, cd’s to magazines and websites. I even met people and gave them cd’s in person! I soon realised that giving people your music free, in the hope that they’d review it or talk to others about it, was a very naive thing to do.

I don’t really know what I’m trying to say apart from, this is the way I’ve always done it and I don’t think it’s ever going to change. So paying FB to promote me is perhaps the equivalent of sending out that cassette 30 years ago and I don’t really expect it to go anywhere or reach anyone but you can’t hang on to your children forever and maybe this will push them further afield into areas that they’ve never been.

Video alert! S.E.T.I. live at Phobos IV

Legion, Lagowski and S.E.T.I. updates all in one

April 22, 2012

Thought I’d better update you on what’s going on at Camp Lagowski. On 22nd May 2012, there will be a Lagowski techno performance at Superdeluxe club in Roppongi, Tokyo, with Sunao Inami and others. On 28th May 2012, my dark ambient project ‘Legion’ will have its final performance at the Wave Gotik Treffen Festival in Leipzig. You can get more regular updates by visiting the ‘Andrew Lagowski Presents Legion’ page at Facebook, which is accessible via the Links page. Both shows will have new DVD material presented. Later this year (in October or November) I will be doing a S.E.T.I. performance in a church in Wuppertal, as presented by Martin of Phelios fame. Really looking forward to that one 🙂

Also later this year, hopefully in September, Legion’s debut album ‘False Dawn’ celebrates its 20th anniversary re-release as a double CD with remixes and hard to find Legion tracks. All of the remixes have been done and mastering is due to take place in Poland in June.

This year, we are also due to see the re-pressing of Nagamatzu’s ‘Sacred Islands of the Mad’ vinyl LP on Dark Entries records, thanks to the fantastic response by fans of dark shoegazing neo wave, whatever you want to call it.

Finally, a very exciting album project is underway with some great musician friends of mine. At the moment, this is top secret, but the sound is very deep and powerful and I think you’ll be blown away by the tracks when this project sees the light of day. We’ve been exchanging tracks via FTP and reworking each other’s sounds until we’re happy that the perfect dark hybrid has surfaced.

How should we create electronic music?

October 1, 2004

I’m no mathematician and don’t understand the principles behind many of the weird and wonderful programs like Metasynth, Supercollider, Soundhack etc. I simply gather the sounds that please me and the rhythms that excite me and try to throw them together. If I understood all of these mathematical principles, do you think I’d create interesting tracks? Maybe yes. I wouldn’t say my tracks now are brilliant by any means but they are what I want to make and listen to at the time they are made.

I liken my noise & music making to some kind of painting. I usually throw a large amount of ‘paint’ on the ‘canvas’ and watch while a great deal of it falls onto the floor. I then spread what remains on the canvas so that certain colours come through and others are obscured. Sometimes, points of light poke through. Sometimes the canvas is naked with blocks of black slammed down hither and thither (is ‘thither’ a real word?).

There are many canvasses lying in the dust on the ‘studio’ floor. One day I’ll blow off the dust and put them back onto the easel to see if I can rescue anything. Maybe the paint will still be wet in places. I suppose I could chip away at the paint and break a few bits off. Maybe I could leave empty patches or add a bit of new paint. Perhaps blend a new colour.

But then perhaps, one day, the brushes will be unusable, stiff or broken. In which case, I shall use my fingers and hands.

By the way, I don’t like using spray paint.
