working on it a bit today, in fact
Playing a lot of JJ material in plug.dj right now, just reminded me of it.
Going to the Heaven gig in November?
The interview was 90minutes, and almost all of it is worth running. I was going to turn it into a proper feature, but it works well as a transcript.
As animals we respond to frequency and certain tones, so what note and key each song is in. It sends you on this journey…it goes like that and then that [makes hand gestures] and then that, then it drops off and pulls back up, y’know. The association of major and minor and also a one-step shift between songs is kinda unsettling. Even though each song is in tune, your ear gets used to hearing this one pitch for four-minutes and then to immediately shift a step has the effect of subconsciously kicking in adrenalin or at least grabbing your attention a little bit. Working in the idea of film and things like that, using tension and dissonance to get the blood pumping, so when you have opposing keys next to each other, the transition, if you do it right, is really jarring in a good way.
plenty more to come http://drownedinsound.com/in_depth/4145551-90-minutes-with-johnny-jewel-part-1--chromatics-live-show-torture-and-edm
Whatever happened to that? I'm still waiting! ;)
It was a kinda bad interview. And it recorded really badly. So I never finished transcribing it.
