Teaser II

backdrop

It’s about a month since the the first teaser and it´s about time for another one. This is the second song from our upcoming release to reach pre mastering state. We have been working hard to improve our production quality and mixes lately. That´s not the most fun part of creating music but hopefully it will payoff in the end product.

So here it is, a few beats from another new song. We will be back shortly after finishing the mix of another one. Hope you like it!

It´s about time for a teaser

Our latest release dates back to 2014-07-13. That´s when Spectrograph was released. That means almost 2 1/2 years have passed. A lot of bands manage to produce an album in that timeframe. We obviously don´t. Why is that? The answer is simply time and money. Both Henrik and I run our own business for a living. We have families that sometimes expect us to actually leave the studio and enter the real world. We live 400 kilometers appart. That means that we never share studio time. Every song travels a few hundred times back and forth over the internet before we decide it´s good enough.

Most of our studio time comes from late nights or preferably weekends, that´s far from ideal. Some nights you just pass out on the couch. An 8 hour workday is seldom the perfect inspiration before entering the studio.

But why complain? Fact is that if our lives looked different we wouldn’t produce the music we do. It would probably sound a lot different without the impressions and struggle of our everyday life. But still both of us have been thinking about the possibility to quit working and just spend your life doing something that is actually interesting and that doesn’t necessary have to bring you money. We have actually started to lay down the blueprints on how to achieve this in a decent timeframe.

This won´t happen over a year or two but hopefully within a decade. We are not rich and the trick is, you don´t have to be. You just have to value the freedom to do what you really want more than consumption. Saving up that amount of cash will demand som sacrifice and stubbornness. Im pretty sure we are up for the task. It could sound as we hate our jobs. We don´t. We actually have quite interesting jobs. But that does not mean that we want to bury our dreams and spend our whole lifes doing it.

For now we have to continue to play the game while following our plans. Meanwhile we will continue producing songs. Lately we realized that we are getting closer to a release. There’s still some recording to be done. Some production and polishing to be applied. But we should be getting there first quarter of 2017 (no promises). So we think it´s about time we started to share som teasers.

We start with a track that is finished and in pre-master state. This one was meant to be very direct and without too many layers both musically and lyrically. It turned out be quite dense music wise anyway, but that is just the Interdictor way…

1319 words

IMG_7606

it´s been a while since we did a blog update. We’ve been busy. The numbers will change. We know how our workflow functions now after 2 releases. 1319 words. 7570 characters. About 5 months of writing. It will be more polished in the end. There might be more words or less words. But this is the foundation of our next release. The meaning of the words will be the same in the end. This is what will transform into emotions, harmony, and sound.

Now that we mention sound. There is sound as well. I just don´t know how to present that in numbers. Let´s just say that we have some material (songs) in different shapes and a whole lot of ideas flowing. In time we will reveal the details about our next release. For now we will keep it to ourselves. Sorry… 😉

But we do want to wish everyone a merry christmas by telling you that there is “something” evolving in the Interdictor camp. And we want to direct a big thank´s to our supporters. When we first started thinking about releasing Noumenon it was just a matter of expressing ourselves. Getting our art out there no matter what. I don´t think neither Henrik or I expected anyone to take that much notice. We were overwhelmed by the interest around the Noumenon release.

Things changed since then. Now we know that there are people listening. People who care. People who like what we do. Our next release will be for you.

Influence Interdictors future

Interdictor
First of all we would like to thank everyone who helped us spread the word about Interdictor and Spectrograph. You are very important for us. As an independent band there’s not the same resources for promotion as with a label. Please continue to help people that could possibly like our music to find their way to our Bandcamp page, Facebook and this blog.

We are now leaving Spectrograph behind us and we have already started to write new material. Artisticly we know very well what we want to do now. The overall concept and themes are already there. Some lyrics is finished and the sound we developed with Noumenon and Spectrograph will form a foundation for our new songs.

Second to our own artistic views the people who listen to our music are the most important for us. We would like to hear how YOU would like Interdictor to evolve and deliver new art in the future.

So now there’s a chance to influence the future of Interdictor by answering a simple poll. We will follow up with some more polls when we analyzed the results of the first one. Make sure to tell your friends to go here and show their opinion if they happen to like Interdictor.

What would you prefer as we develop Interdictor further?

piFesth fünf (release party)

IMG_7552

Interdictor was born out of the demoscene and a group of people with kind of similar taste in music, movies and culture in general. We used to visit hacker events around northern Europe and compete with our music, graphics and code. But as we grew older, started working and building families all of us left the scene. We continued our friendship via a mailing list which has been active for more than 15 years now. Now and then some of us got together for a party or a concert.

One of the best things I know is drinking beer and listening to the music I love. The problem is that every time I go to a party I am in minority. Most people show no respect for alternative music so your lucky if you are able to hear 15 seconds of Skinny Puppy before they change song. And then you have to listen to Lady Gaga for 5 hours. So one day I had an idea for the perfect party. Let´s get together just the good old friends with common taste in music, drink beer for a whole day and play our music, loud without interuptions.

IMG_7555

piFesth was born. Every summer we get together at my place for many good beers in the sun, barbecue, puffin a few cigars and loud music coming from my beloved piP (therefore the name piFetsh) loudspeakers and Profundus bass modules. We usually put together a playlist for Spotify a few weeks before the party starts to avoid the usual party-spotify-dj. You know the one who interrupts every song and switches music every 15 seconds.

We try to avoid activities in general and concentrate on the music and beer. But once we tried to record a song.  It did not turn out well. When Henrik arrived we were already about 15 beers into the party. Once we had a blind test of Russian vodka. Shooting with a potato cannon was also an interesting experience. Analog synth experimentation is also allowed and of course electric guitar at 03:00.

This year holds the fifth version of this event, of course called piFesth fünf. A few years back when Interdictor was born we started to play our forthcoming material at these parties. A great oportunity to get relevant opinions. This year we have just released our new material. So tomorrow is a combined piFesth and Interdictor release party.

IMG_7565

We will all be happy celebrating that we finally got Spectrograph out of the door. And when the party is over and we wake up again we are ready to start working on new material. That will probably take a day or two… 😉 So if there are strange pictures or comment coming out of our Twitter tomorrow, it´s just the live stream from Interdictors releaseparty that has started!!!

Spectrograph

spectrograph_cover_400px

Good or evil, happy or sad, right or wrong. Humanity has reached a state where we view the world around us in yesterdays monochrome vision. There is no time to think, no need to evaluate possibilities somwhere in between the extremes.

The saying is that there are always two sides of the coin. But that is just a matter of perspective. Close enough there are thousand upon thousand facets of the coin. Your mind is a spectrograph. Given some perspective it can separate the wavelenghts. You ARE able to see the full spectrum, not just black and white.
