5. Why do you play music?

I need to. It is an excrement of digested impressions.

6. When did you start making music?

Monocorpse started in 2013.

7. Which track defines you the most?

The tracks I create with Monocorpse are not autobiographical but based on the

mes. In my opinion, the best descriptions of its theme are “2nd Offer” and O

n the Other Side of the Mirror”.

A perpetual ritual.

Survive by Combat Force – Four mouth breathers producing violence that is ma

de audible by Will Killingsworth.

All my music is an interpretation of some form of ritual sacrifice.

I studied metallurgy. Yes.

Pentti Saparneva.

13.Favorite book?

The Comfort of Strangers by Ian McEwan.

14.Favorite classic movie?

It’s a tie between:

The Tenant by Roman Polanski and

The Wicker Man by Robin Hardy

15.Favorite music label?

Enfant Terrible/Gooiland Elektro; an honest label with genuine DIY ethics and

I am honoured to be on their roster. The releases are very divers but always

challenging and I have quite a few of them in my record collection.

Most non-ET releases that I have purchased recently came from:

Youth Attack, L.A. Club Resource, Tour de Garde and Bunker/Panzerkreuz.

16.Your dream collaboration?

Monocorpse is and will always be a solitary journey.

17. Are you analog or digital?

Digital.

18.Which soft wares/tools/ instruments do you use/play?

I like to keep it minimal and only use a D16 – Drumazon and a Korg Legacy – M

S20 plug-in.

19.Describe your creative process?

I get obsessed by a certain topic for a few months; I read and watch

everything I can find on it. During that period I intuitively create music that is an interpretation of the topic.

Afterwards, I apply structure and strip it to its bare essence.

20.When are you the most prolific (creatively)?

See above.

21. Any favorite record stores? (Real/virtual)

Plexus in Delft and Distortion in Amsterdam.

22.What’s your life philosophy? (Optimistic/pessimistic)

I am a pessimist.

23.Do you have a healthy lifestyle?

It depends on the season.

24.How do you manage your time effectively? (Job/hobby)

I don’t. The job wins. If I really need to create music, I sacrifice sleep.

25. Any secret skills?

No secret skills.

26. Any future plans?

A new EP entitled The Comfort of Strangers” will be released by

Enfant Terrible/Gooiland Elektro in February.

27.What’s your life motto?

Do what thou wilt.

28. Any “mot de la fin”?

None, merci.
