Drain the maker with uuskhy - An Interview

Por entre toques de modernidade sem perder os ares nostálgicos, o projeto uuskhy, escrito em caixa baixa mesmo, existe desde 1999, e não se identifica, creio eu, com nada feito atualmente, ok, pode até se conectar em determinadas passagens mas o resultado final soa estranho se a intenção for rotular o trabalho do uuskhy.

"Drain the Marker" é o mais recente trabalho, sucessor de T+d (ego-d suuite) do ano passado. A grande diferença aqui é a adição mais intensa dos vocais, e o uso cada vez mais carregado de samplers. Tudo é combustível para o uuskhy, seja o industrial oitentista, seja baladas quase bregas também da década perdida, a escola Wax Trax chegando até beirar algo como Moby.

Inclassificável, complexo e instigante, assim é o uuskhy.

***** Interview with uuskhy *****

Q. When did uuskhy begin? Tell us about the history...
uuskhy began in 1999, with a composition entitled 'the hunt' (which was never released). the project has generated musical material under myriad monikers, but materialized as uuskhy once the mixing/mastering engineer decided to refrain from claiming personal responsibility.

Q: Who are your influences?
uuskhy's main influences are 'the conspiracy against the human race'by thomas ligotti, and empathy.

uuskhy will never have enough knowledge to decisively create such a list. however, 'luxury problems' by andy stott is playing right now.

Q. How do you feel playing live?
uuskhy has performed once. it felt cathartic. it was both the greatest and worst show they ever played.

Q. How do you describe uuskhy´s sounds?
a pastiche assembled thru growing up in midwest america and being very confused by the weather.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
all uuskhy songs are recorded in the dark with nothing but a computer, logic pro 9 (academic version), and a strict set of parameters. only a webcam microphone was used in the recording of 'Drain the maker'.
