Yesterday I opened Command And Conquer: Tiberium Alliances to find that Aaadam player had destroyed my third base again. I gave him a peace truce the first time, but he did it again, so now that meant war. This morning, I destroyed his main base. And now I feel very satisfied. Smile

Foci's Left Interview – Futurepast Zine Issue 6 – September 2013

Mick (Foci's Left) has recently released an album called 'Grumpy Love', he also runs a very interesting blog (http://www.subvertcentral.blogspot.co.uk) and was one of the backers for this issue of Futurepast Zine. I'd interviewed Mick a couple of years ago and this was a good opportunity to find out what was happening right now...

1. You recently released your debut album 'Grumpy Love'. What's the album about, why give it that title?

“Grumpy Love” is about a few things really. First and foremost it's a dedication album to my sister Jo, in the form of dialectically epic-with-longevity music that I tried to conjure to me most affecting over the longest period of time. The second transitive is a soundtrack to my life so far. Now aged 25, I have been many things in life: a cheerful infant; a reclusive teenager; a full contact kickboxer; a freelance published writer in over 10 zines; a music producer. With “Grumpy Love” I wanted to encapsulate all the passionate moments as an epicentric part and counterpoint to aurally channelled “grumpy music”. When we are grumpy, we're usually brooding over something, some hardship which makes us feel a certain negative way, or cuts us off from bearing our soul. I have constantly had this theme of not bearing my soul too much over the course of my life, so the music on “Grumpy Love” takes on a certain, sullen tone. Whether that helps the end product is open to interpretation, but as you said yourself, “it's pretty amazing”, and I take that as a huge compliment.

2. Why dedicate the album to your sister?

My sister Jo is a driving reason why I've made a lot of moves in my life, from how long I went training, to how long I stayed living with her until middle 2011. “Silence Is Golden”, a 345 sample, 3 hour collage – and still the best piece of 'music' I've ever heard – lead to a loss of stability. I realised after that I needed to move on to my own accommodation, and a trip through mental hospital a year later lead to buying a keyboard to produce to help produce the album. I still don't consciously know why I wanted to do an LP, besides having “Regurgitated Impulses (Original)” produced since the age of 17, when Jo was experiencing a tough time. But I know I had her in mind when channelling my emotions, as she means a lot to me, yet we are still quite distant from each other at times. I guess as I'd done a few EPs, (the first on Audio Gourmet, the second self-released, the third on Omni Music) I wanted to express to a greater extent what I'm about, what sort of music I want to hear that I don't hear anyone else making quite the same way.

3. Why did you release it as digital only?

The choice to release it digitally came about as a half-inconsequential decision. I hadn't really taken into account what sorts of funds I'd need to press CDs and get digipaks designed – so it's digital only for now. Heck, if I had a hundreth of the 33,000 "For The Ambient Lovers...review and mixtape archive 001” (my Subvert Central thread concerning Ambient reviews) audience exposed to and enjoying the album so they would support it I'd be able to sort out CD pressing. Alas it's not quite that simple – I'm still a very obscure artist with only 5 releases contributed to. In the Ambient and electroacoustic scene there is a surprisingly broad selection of records to choose from...naturally the more exposed the artist the greater their revenue share. I've never been about making money from music, but if I could sell enough to support funding of future projects I'd be happy.

4. When I listened to your album it felt I would have to burn it to CD to listen in my car, you could always do it that way yourself...anyway, how does the artwork link in with the album?

Yes I could always burn a few mastered Wav CDs to send to people, make it proper DIY and all that. The artwork and how it fits in...Niomi is Jo's current girlfriend and leopards have been with my parents as a means of comfort for decades – they have a cuddly leopard toy. So it seemed ideal to include the image, and plus I think it's ace, so it all worked out nicely.

5. Have you got any more music coming out soon?

I'm currently putting the finishing touches to my fourth solo EP, “Dumping The Rock”. It will be comprised of 5 tracks – the fifth a bonus for whoever purchases it on Bandcamp. Like “Grumpy Love” the EP will showcase a range of styles with a unifying theme – in this case music that disperses any of the aggression of past releases. I'll be selling it at the same price as the album – an inexpensive £5. I feel it's my most mature music to date but still retains a youthful edge.

6. What do you use to make your music?

I use various sources to make my music. The primary two sequencers I use are Mulab, a freeware tracker with kits of great VSTs built in. The second and essentially intermediary one I go to is Ableton Live 8 Suite. “Overdriven Terrain”, the synthesiser track you said was breathtaking was created solely there, with The Dream Machine and STS-21 freeware VSTs. But mainly I use hardware these days. My trusty Casio CTK-4200 AD 61 key keyboard produces over 600 tones on its own before I go in and edit. I then capture these sounds with an Olympus VN-713 voice recorder and resample them back into software.

7. Also, I noticed your post about a 'Police State' on Subvert Central some time ago, I was wondering if any of that works its way into your music?

As to the Police State situation, it depresses me for sure, however as my Mum says, if you're not doing anything wrong, wholesale, then you shouldn't have to worry about anything. The article in question was extremely leftist, discussing and condoning the organisation of police forces as to creating positive measures against criminals. But I like your analogy there that the police are little more than organised gangsters. I'm actually still surprised that the rules are being enforced, as it means the police might have to get off their arses and do some work.

8. I asked you to put together a short mix. You called it 'Positive Congruence' – what does that mean and can you tell me a bit more about the mix?

'Positive Congruence' arose from reading Carl Rogers' 'On Becoming A Person' psychotherapy doctrine when the British Olympic Games Opening Ceremony was on in 2012. The chapter concerning the phrase 'positive congruence' piqued me, in how to understand and open myself up to new experiences with individuals. It means transparency and honesty without being overbearing. Sounds that followed suit in their nature of being rousing only were added. There are up to ten tracks layered at once in 'Positive Congruence'. Therefore providing a track list would be impossible. I can give you some tunes and artists that were played. “Birthday Suit” by Chubby Wolf opens it; Hallock Hill's “A Burning Question (A Question Of Burning)” from “There He Unforeseen” not long after. Machinefabriek & Gareth Davis' “Oh, Doctor Jesus” post 15 minutes (the saxophone piece); Donato Wharton's “Ink Mountains” at 14:30. Barn Owl's epic “Devotion II” at closing. This amount of tracks layered at one time by me, has only been exceeded (16) in the timelesss “Silence Is Golden” 3 hour collage that I published on http://www.subvertcentral.blogspot.co.uk this year. I'm very happy with this mix, the climax at the end by Jon Porras & Evan Caminiti giving anchorage into more powerful affectations, once the listening process is over. Since it's all about congruence with a certain type of thinking – powerful affectations that nurture knowingness and trust – that the person is being understood for what he or she is.

Mick has done an excellent mix for Futurepast Zine so be sure to check it at http://www.futurepastzine.blogspot.co.uk and check his music out at http://www.focisleft.bandcamp.com - it's breathtaking Smile

- Sad to hear Robin Williams had committed suicide. As someone else said on Twitter today, “Depression is not and never has been a measure of how loved you are, how funny you are, how successful you are or how talented you are.” It just 'is', a clouded separateness, and the only relation to your situation is what you are born into the world like personally. At my most loved I've also felt most suicidal, which is strange I'm sure others can agree. I enjoyed his appearances in Flubber and Mrs. Doubtfire. Maybe I'll see Good Will Hunting for more serious stuff.

- Listened to Aural Candy's third LP “Occasional Moments Of Clarity” again. It's one of the best albums I've heard this year, which is surprising for the “plinky plonk nonsense” tag.

- Listened to Bat For Lashes' “Two Suns”. I have to remember even if I had a past life involving Natasha Khan as I believe I have as Carl Rogers, I can't let that rule this life. Her boyfriend is Jon Hopkins, she barely knows me, and the rest is delusions of the occult.

- Talking of depression, but in much less potent circumstances, I spent a lot of time in bed this morning and afternoon, unhappiness due to not getting the flat as I was told I had 5 days ago from the phone call back. You'd think he (the landlord) would have made the decision the day after meeting me, instead of making me wait and telling me I'd already got the flat. Icon_sad Oh well, I'll just cut my losses and move on, and wait for another low value property to rent.

Does that help you? I've been thinking about 'journaling' my activities for a while now. Do you find you are living your life trying to accomplish things on your checklist, though? That's been my life for the last 6 years: staring down a huge daily checklist for work. I need to do more goalsetting versus pedantry.

I like to read the posts in this thread, yet I couldn't do such a journal myself. Never had a diary, nor a blog or whatever. But, I organised parts of my existance according to dates, namely records and movies. I have an odd fixation on release dates of these things.

It gives me a sense of satisfaction I wouldn't get anywhere else. Ultimately meaning I like to tally my achievements - these being things I have done each day as opposed to nothing, which is always good.

Quote:I've been thinking about 'journaling' my activities for a while now.

I would say from the outset as a warning: if you are liable to being self-conscious you may find it uncomfortable at first - either tallying your lists on your desktop before publishing them, or the anxiety from when publishing them. It hasn't stopped me though, and I'm one of the most anxiety-prone people I know. In fact the most ever, really.

Quote:Do you find you are living your life trying to accomplish things on your checklist, though? That's been my life for the last 6 years: staring down a huge daily checklist for work. I need to do more goalsetting versus pedantry.

I like to write things I've done after I've done them, otherwise I get too expectant of myself and disappointed if I don't achieve everything on my checklist. To have a few objectives in the back of my mind is good, but putting them out on paper sometimes makes me reel back a bit through reclusive characteristics. You may be completely different.

Anyway, wots I dun today.

Angel Olsen - Burn Your Fire For No Witness (JagJaguwar CD / LP)


Driven by searing, heavy-heart lyrics and a tactless whine that recalls Roy Orbison's “Crying” but sung by a female, the debut album by NC's Angel Olsen is something both extreme but rhythmically diverse. Joshua Jaeger's plodding pop percussion clashes horns with heavy rock and metal, while Olsen vaults her lyrics up and down registers between tracks like a banshee on an acid trip. On the most melancholy “White Fire”, she croons “everything is just tragic, it all just falls apart / when I look into your eyes, the pieces of my heart / I only had an answer, to put it all to bed / I wish sometimes I could take back every word I said”.

Olsen sings with an honesty and general lack of ambiguity that pierces the cherry tip of your ears. It's as if her broken, husky voice is victim to a thunderstorm and she's trying to pull the plugs simultaneously. “Burn Your Fire”'s electrified nature wholly resembles a domestic anti-euphoria, revelling in gloom but keeping an instability through electric guitar, a voice of volition and keyboard parts that recall mid career Pink Floyd. Guitar wins out as the battery fluid, like on the most cathartic “Windows” to close, though the twinkly piano arpeggios on “High And Wild” share more limelight midway. “I'm neither innocent or wise, when you look me in the eyes / because you don't see me, any more” shakes up this listener's emotions. I asked myself: am I perceiving this music well? Is there something I've abused along the way?

This type of LP situationism is less common in rock and indie-inflected records today, which is where Angel Olsen is a name of note. Like Bjork, she works with structure, but doesn't let it control her. This is one of the few key characteristics of all breakthrough artists as they reach for tones beyond falsetto and soprano. For Olsen, “Burn Your Fire For No Witness”, recorded at Echo Mountain Studios is an exercise in an artist finding a ledge to perch on, but for once it doesn't feel like the platform is about to cave in.

- Read Rory Gibb & Dan Barrow's column in The Wire #367 September 2014 - really good. Gibb seems to have more sound references than the Old School Values text.
- Uploaded 4th Novation Bass Station controlled live set, which lasted over 15 minutes last night. It sounded really good live, and sounds decent in recording; you don't get the same layering build-up from the looping chronology by listening back to the layered-loop final version. Now to try utilising looped audio tracks/segments.
- Listened to this excellent electronica collage by Blevin Blectum, which is half drill 'n' bass and half noise Grin

Jon, you can order "Irradiance" for me :P. Just kidding. It's contemporary classical, might not be your or my thing. In the meantime I'm having much fun listening to Blectum's "LazyCoffee April" mixset that's just come on after the other track.

- Discovered Robert Scott Thompson has placed my review of his "Arcana" (my second Wire test review) at the top of the releases' page, above Textura no less. I did ask him to keep it under wraps in case Derek wanted to publish it, but no matter. He's sent me a copy on CD which I think is at the post office. Smile

https://robert-scott-thompson.bandcamp.com/album/arcana

- Listened to "Arcana" while falling asleep after meds this afternoon. I'm still experiencing an acute drowsiness in afternoons after the dose I'm on in the mornings. But I'm my happiest ever and haven't needed to reach for the Diazepam for around 3 weeks. That would be because I'm doing everything planned as comfortable.
- Learned how to pronounce Szechuan the Chinese way, not the American way. Will be cooking Szechuan Beef from the Fakeaways book tonight, looking fwd.
- Tried playing a set piano mix on the larger keyboard with a linked mix of "All By Myself", "Forgotten Times" and "Muttley Theme". Fingers weren't working that well.
Reply

- Fingers were working better in the evening. I recorded Novation Live Session 5 which lasted over 25 minutes. Big Blues guitar from Ableton, a fat beat (I cut up one of the beats I made from drum machines and played gabba styled arpeggios with the beat patterns between keys), Novachord Autechre style, Latin Percussion bells (thanks dionysus!) STS-21 (my favourite soft synth, I made "Regurgitated Impulses" with it) and Dubtron2. 130 BPM this time. Will upload tomorrow afternoon.
- Took meds later than usual (midnight < 10PM) as I wanted to have the volition to do more. Mixes things up with my natural body clock.
- Szechuan Beef with Chillies, Peppers, Green Beans and Rice was awesome, though after washing my hands thoroughly after chopping chillies my eye almost shut from touching the side of my eye. Had to flush it with lots of cold water in a small eye bath. Shit buzz.
- Considered going to a friends' Farm pig roast party, hope I can go (I haven't been out for longer than 45 minutes for over a month).
- Now ranked in the top 20% of Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances' at 1996 ending midnight. Finally got my hands on the Orca (the old C&C: Tiberian Sun gamer in me from the nineties remembers how good they were as a whole unit of aircraft).
- Worked with more skill on the Novation synth that gives me the possibility to use just one synth live as I have a grand piano facility in Ableton. 2 octaves though.
