1. What are your top five albums that were released in 2014? (In order 1-5)
I don't know what happened but I really missed the year or nothing revelant came out...but I didn't listen to much new records. 2013 was more interesting.
Anyway, here's the 5 records that where good enough to keep my attention.
- Hans Zimmer - Interstellar
- Ben Frost - Aurora
- Yob - Clearing the Path
- Nils Frahm - Spaces
- Sia - 1000 forms of Fear
2. What band did you discover in 2014 (can be a brand new band or an older band) that had an impact on your life? What made them significant?
I guess Ben Frost would be the one who had an impact somehow. The "Aurora" pushed me to get into sound hunting for the next year/record of The Eye of Time.
3. How will you remember 2014? (In terms of music)
It was a really good year for all my bands, and I've been touring a lot, and all the shows where really cool. I made a German tour with Mort Mort Mort in May, with our friends from HÄSHCUT (Their music is great!), and a 2 weeks summer tour in Europe with my both bands Mort Mort Mort and Sugartown Cabaret, which was perfectly good, specially the show in Ukraine. I also played the Denovali Swingfestival, with The Eye of Time, where I discovered really good projects. Some records came out too: a 2 songs 7" for my band Mort Mort Mort, a LP for The Eye of Time called Acoustic--only piano and cello. And most exciting, I've been preparing all the year the release of the next The Eye of Time electronic album called Anti, who will be released in March 2015. This year was absolutely not boring.
4. What can we look forward to from you in 2015?
A year fully booked, I can already see this coming. We are finishing the process of composing a new record for Sugartown Cabaret, that I hope will be in studio beginning next year. Really excited about. Still in composition for a new record with Mort Mort Mort, that will hopefully be ready after summer 2015. And really excited about the Anti record by The Eye of Time on March 2015 on Denovali Records. Also some tours and festivals in confirmation, especially for The Eye of Time. An acoustic tour in April in France, then a electronic tour to promote the new Anti record in Europe.
5. What records are you looking forward to most in 2015?
There are too many bands, too many records to be waiting any of them. Only the "masters" like Portishead (it seems they've been working on a new one) or Sigur Ros. I'm totally not aware about what's coming next. I just get the information months after something came out.
6. What trend will you forever associate with 2014 in music?
