I just heard that some people shall have been complaning about the sound of the original Equinoxe contained in the box set, both vinyl and CD. Did anyone notice any problems? I didn't...
That was brilliant. Really good questions asked throughout and answered diligiently and humbly.
Thanks for your kind words. And yeah, I love that photo too. I took it when he played an outdoor concert at the fortress in Oslo, with Röyksopp and Robyn as his opening act. Great evening.Analog-Umph wrote:That was brilliant. Really good questions asked throughout and answered diligiently and humbly.
Ideally, I would've asked even more in-depth questions on some albums, he really had a cool attitude about it all, and remembered things in detail so many years later - which is always good, you don't see that with every artist, but evidently there wasn't enough time.

Wow! Thank you! He told me he wanted to go back to painting (jokingly) because he just couldn't make Oxygene 3 work. Heidie (his girlfriend at the time) helped a lot with her encouragement.AFAN Alessandro Fantini wrote:From my personal point of view, the highlights of this in-depth interview are his revelations about the making of "Waiting for Cousteau" (introduced by his idiosincrasy towards music played in restaurants) and his "freudian" remotion of the T&T tracks.
I've always thought that the piano notes were played by him while it's likely the software algorithm had the task to trigger the different effects over the pad. His answer confirms what I've written in my review of "Equinoxe infinity" (to be released on an Italian magazine) when comparing that ambient piece with the last track of the new album.
It's also a singular coincidence that he considered to quit composing music and become a full time painter just after our meeting in summer 2016 (maybe a side-effect of my artbook and my question about his first exhibition?)
Thank you very much again for sharing this brilliant "private conversation".
Hmm, it hurt him financially as well? Didn't know that. I thought that kind of nonsense was something the Americans did.jeanbatman wrote:Yes very strange indeed...
