Evaemon Interviewed in NeuFutur

Can you describe your creative process to us? How does a song go from an initial germ of an idea to a full composition?

Its all pretty loosely done to be honest. sometimes i might just be messing around with a synth and come up with a melody. other times ill have an idea stuck in my head and ill try recreate it within Logic. but once the melodies down i just try to make sounds that compliment the melody and just build from there

Discovering Atlantis is your first release. What story does it tell?

How is it different creating your own compositions compared to those that artists commission to perform on?

I tried to create something that sonically and style wise was constantly changing but kept similar characteristics to keep the tape flowing from song to song.

 

Listeners make much to do about the quality of online music (128 v 320, FLAC v streaming). What thought have you put into the different ways in which listeners can experience the compositions on Discovering Atlantis?

 

Ive had an idea to do an interactive music clip for the entire release that would play through like a choose your own journey goosebumps story. but as far as audio quality i haven’t really given it much thought.

 

What does the balance of 2015 hold for you? What styles/approaches/influences will you take in the follow-up recordings to Discovering Atlantis?

 

My friend and I are making an 8 bit mixed with trap/EDM release that will be out within the next few months under the pseudonym Miya Moto. Really this year is gonna be all about building up a following, playing more shows, releasing more music and working hard with my fam in the Lone Wolf Jupiter crew to release fresh and interesting beats

 

What has been your most successful composition, and given the opportunity to do the track over, how would you improve or otherwise change it?

 

It would have to be this instrumental i did for rapper S.T.R.A.P. titled “Soul Love”. I’d rework the drums a bit, make them roomier and spend more time working on the minnie rippleton sample.

 

What would you like to do as a performance before you retire?

 

No restrictions what so ever; I’d love to perform a beach festival, or somewhere relatively remote but with a huge turn out and plenty of eye catching visuals on stage.

 

Finally, do you have anything else to mention to the readers of NeuFutur?

 

Ahh keep an eye out for new music coming from LoneWolfJupiter and all its artist including myself and Miya Moto. We have so many styles and genres theres something for everybody.

 

Thank you so much for your time.
