Unfold with Ghost Actor - An Interview

Darkwave lenta, sombria e atmosférica, é o que o Ghost Actor, duo de Viena mostra em seu debute Unfold a ser lançado no próximo dia 31/10 e que cai perfeitamente de trilha sonora para noites gélidas e dias cinzentos.

Em exclusividade para o TBTCI, Unfold chegou e meus caros, o disquinho é pesadíssimo, dolorosamente denso, carregado de fantasmas dos ícones dos idos sombrios e angustiantes dos 80´s.

O TBTCI adverte, cuidado ao ouvir Ghost Actor e seu Unfold em momentos de tristeza, pode aguçar ainda mais impulsos perigosos.

***** Interview with Ghost Actor *****

Q. When did Ghost Actor starts tell us about the history...
Corina: Mahk and I knew each other from earlier collaborations and when he came up with the idea for this project I was very intrigued by the sound he had envisioned. We started developing the songs as a whole and recording them in early 2013.

Q: Who are your influences?
Corina: I didn't consciously bring any of my musical roots into this project, I wanted it to be as pure and unguided as possible. But I enjoy a vast variety of music, let's just name a few who have deeply inspired me as a musician: Björk, Nic Endo, Coil, Camille O'Sullivan...

Q. Made a list of 5 albums of all time…
Björk – Homogenic;
Chokebore – It's a miracle;
Einstürzende Neubauten – Halber Mensch;
Nine Inch Nails – The Fragile;
Joy Division – Unknown Pleasures.

Q. How do you fell playing alive?
Corina: Playing live is an intense experience, I really love it! Being in the moment with the music and the audience often leads to discovering something new within the music and expressing that instantly. It's exciting, like beautiful chaos! Transmitting that feeling of exploration and sharing it with the audience is what makes live shows such an inspiring and gratifying experience for me.

Q. How do you describe Ghost Actor sounds?
Corina: Difficult to describe, it is a special sound, dark, very atmospheric, haunting.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Corina: We recorded and mixed everything in Mahk's home studio, it was often a very spontaneous process.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
Corina: So many fantastic bands and artists out there! It's beautiful to see so much talent abound! Right now I enjoy Keluar, hausfrau, 1982, Minuit Machine...

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
Corina: We made a cover of Durutti Column's "Smile in the Crowd", that turned out really well. Maybe a Coil song could be interesting!

Q: What´s the plans for future....
Corina: We have our debut album UNFOLD coming out Oct 31 on Berlin label aufnahme + wiedergabe and we will be playing a couple of shows across Europe.

Q: Any parting words?
Corina: Revel in the experience!
Thanks Corina
