Meet Pol Goz ... The Architect ....
I sincerely believe that we live in a country with a lot talent ... Also with very many problems ... of all kinds ... political, social, personal, psychological, and eschatological epicentricos ... But I like to focus on the first part of the sentence ... the talent ..
It is known that the second language is the Spanish rock, and all Spanish-speaking countries, by far ... far away .. Argentina is the one that had more development, more artists, created the scene almost simultaneously with what was happening in England and the United States and without an assessment of quality or taste, it is enough to say without fear of equivocarce we are among the 3rd world countries with the greatest tradition and development in rock and pop.
In this context, we are full of talent ... a talent countless times ignored by the industry, so we find it is quite an event, recognize it is an obligation, and consume is a joy ..
Pol Goz is the producer we chose for our first EP, my personal friend ... but I'm here to tell my friends because I do not think anybody cares, I want to present to an emerging talent as a musician and as a producer talking about how we care at all ... the music ... Great sound responsible our EP, architect .... Ground Control to major Pol ....
The Ruffian: Tell us as you started your career as a musician and producer
Pol: Well, I started as a musician, then a producer devine almost without realizing it .... As a musician, I started singing from a very young and then reaching adolescence was the turn of the instrument ... guitar at that time. I've always been more self-taught scholar, so I met many things alone. My main concern in those years was to make songs, you can download the data that came to mind without hesitation ....
Production was a consequence of the foregoing .. was logical that after dominating much the composition, my voice and my instrument needed to make them live in harmony and also find record of quickly and concisely what was channeling. Send order and make it shine.
ER: Why did you decide to start producing?
Pol: Begin to produce other artists arose from the need to improve myself in the production thereof and also the alternative to make a living with something that had to do with me. Work on many things before you can devote to music production. I started working under the wing of his trademark Zeta Bosio Alert other discs as assistant engineers and producers.
After a while I was given the responsibility to me to make productions and that the responsibilities and feelings put the handle .. something I like to deal with. So were added to the production of increasingly complex and put it in some way, with more limited time, etc ...
All those years were of great learning, sweating and testing .... That's where I really started to understand that it was producing fully.
RE: What were your influences in both roles?
Pol: Many, like all artists ... but particularly the pop and rock world. Always look for what most resonated in me, I never felt like he betrayed me, trying to impose algoque not listening to my attention. That generated a filter that made every thing I put my attention, I look to the last detail and because it was playing there .. This generated a behavior ...
Obviously, many who know me know that I am a great devotee of Soda and Cerati. The explanation for this is simple. In his music and its production was the order and chaos in harmony and I rafter enough to be my mainstay when selecting music to listen to.
Then also one begins to absorb and research in the ancestors and so begins to find a amount of things related to your liking .. obvious name artists do not like.
With regard to production, is different .. perhaps because the most prevalent in production is carried away by what happens in during a production. Manda.Pero That's what I have to admit that my first search of soundness in sound come from the hand produced by Brendan O'Brien, producer of 90's grunge sound ... that skinny explodes mixtures and is the day of Today I keep looking unveil some secrets ... on top, is the low profile type that I know more, so know that the kitchen makes is impossible ... that also made me search endlessly through experimentation ... always with the phrase in the teeth ... be over here??
ER: As you face production jobs? Pensas sound like an issue from the outset? are looking for?
Pol: Mainly listening to the demos or the raw material without interference from their composers. Letting the music speak to me and guide me. She always has an intension .. you just have to dress the way adecuada.Uno be his tailor.
Often audio issues clearly suggest, other cases, the opposite .. and that's where the most interesting game which is experiment, try different shades, order parts, etc ...
There is a particular search, because every artist has his label and what I try to stress is that in every production, accompanied by chips noissette.
ER: How was working with The Ocean on his first EP?
Pol: A bard! lol
Nah, not at all. On the contrary, they are very talented beings, understanding and research. Armed with these tools, it is unlikely that things will not come to fruition.
Perhaps strangest (and is something that happens very often) is that cost them loose to the idea of being produced by someone outside of the band. This occurred for two reasons ... the attachment to the demos and experimentation to work with another stranger to the band to decide for them.
I say it's common for this to happen because it is not very common in our market a rock band hire a producer to make your / s disk ... therefore not within the normal parameters of a musician recording. Anyway this was nothing next to the fingers and tongue attacks that clung to Javi (laughs) ...
ER: That's what I call more attention to this work? that's what you enjoy most? and that was the most difficult?
Pol: I find something I have drawn attention, but I emphasize the clarity of the search with each members. No doubt, and that makes the job more bearable.
I enjoyed the whole process from end to end because each code was generating a particular understanding and I felt very comfortable in that environment. With each person that one sees in this work always learn something new and this time this occurred all the time. I remember very intense sessions with Eddy voices, as his voice is a rough diamond polishing was to know to get all the brightness and character. It was very emotional too.
The hardest .. Leandro was convinced that he had to leave his ex girlfriend or re-record all the guitars again ... (at the end I end up doing both) or Javi and explain to your favorite band also uses strong compressors on drums. (Laughs)
ER: Conta where recorded, the characteristics of the study and because you thought it was a good place to do this project
Pol: The album was recorded entirely in the studio "HALLWAY" in the neighborhood of Saavedra. This study on two floors is where I usually do most of my productions ... for two reasons, class hardware with that account and the good vibes that resides there.
Also, affordability relative to the used, gives advantages when working with good times and schedules without pressure or timers. I really like the room is in your rec room and reflections obtained there for batteries eg. For this project was ideal.
The production part of the synth sequences and the study did control I have in my home as a matter of convenience with instruments.
ER: So you see the local and global music scene? to see changes in the way you compose, produce, promote and sell music?
Pol: Well, I think that while we're globalized pros and cons of living in a country of the third kind ... and you really notice it. The local scene is still very selfish and that brings us to a terrible depersonalization that worsens as time passes. I think locally this difficult to do shows with good production and not come out with losses of all kinds.
However, the wheel keeps turning and all the time there are new exponents that give fight and keep alive the flame of rock Argentilingo ... but it would be interesting to all of us to relax a little and start to come together and support each other to achieve a common movement call back the public's interest.
It is also true that both international artist landed in our country, bet events generators pose on these and not on the domestic .. Moreno should put in the Ministry of culture so that this does not happen more? ... (Laughs)
Moreover, we have internet .. and that really is another world. Social networks are making a revolution like in ancient times the press regarding the publication of works and that is very good for all artists in the world. While multimedia and producers are fighting over who gets the biggest slice, the thing grows and the artists that smaller and medium are very favorable.
Also, the fact that each musician to produce music or media from home proliferates supply while demand dissolves endless possibilities it really is very difficult to predict where anger.
I think more to this than we live today than in the old mechanisms of production and sale of art. We're good, but still lack clear guidelines order and in very many cases.
RE: How was your experience in Europe playing with Pollen?
Pol: It was very strong. Seen from today seems like a dream .. but it was very real. We were able to get a very precise view of how things really are out there ... demystifying and reaffirming a lot of things.
I really enjoyed, but it was very strange to go to touch them .. no? ... However, to our surprise, we were very well received and celebrated in every show. They do not judge ... enjoy.
We played something like nine shows at festivals both first-line and in the underground in London and Barcelona. I think that answers a bit to the previous question ... the power of the Internet is limitless, and to show what you do across boundaries and miles is a great thing you can do to get your music to unimagined places and that we must take advantage .
We call attention to the professionalism and speed of the people working in the media as well as the willingness and good treatment that artists have to be of the kind they are. There is vibrated art and creation. They honor.
Ah .. and artists are so hung like here ... hahaha
ER: Conta where we can hear your music, your work and contact you
Pol: We are currently finishing the new material to be released in the coming weeks and possibly also playing live soon.
Here I leave some links where they can be aware of what we do with Pollen or, introduce them to ...
To contact me can do so through Facebook messages on the fan page of Pollen.
Greetings, complacency and love for all.
