Meet Host Pol Goz ... Architect ....
I sincerely believe that we live in a country with a lot talent ... Also 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 ... talent ..
It is known that the second language of rock is Spanish, and all Spanish-speaking countries, by far ... far .. Argentina is one that had more development, more artists, generated the scene almost simultaneously with what spent in England and the United States without an assessment of quality or taste, it is enough to say without fear that we equivocarce between the 3 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 an obligation, and is a joy to consume ..
Pol Goz is the producer we chose for our first EP, my personal friend ... but I'm not here to tell my friends because I do not think anyone cares, I want to present to an emerging talent as musician and producer talking about we care at all ... the music ... Great sound responsible our EP, architect .... Ground Control to major Pol ....
The Ruffian: Tell us as you start your career as a musician and producer
Pol: Well, I started as a musician, and then devine at producer almost without realizing it .... As a musician, I started singing from an early age and then reaching adolescence was the turn of the instrument ... then the guitar. I was always self-taught scholar, so I decided many things alone. My main concern at that time was to make songs, to download the data that came to mind without hesitation ....
The production was a consequence of the above .. it was logical that after dominating much the composition, my voice and my instrument needed to make them live together in harmony and also find record of a quick and concise manner 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 disks like other assistant engineers and producers.
After a while I gave myself the responsibility of making productions that they put the responsibilities and feelings to handle .. something I like to deal with. So they went to a sum of the productions and increasingly complex as it somehow with more limited time, etc ...
All those years were of much learning, sweating and testing .... That's where I really began to understand that it was producing fully.
ER: 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, never felt betraying my taste, trying to impose listening algoque do not attract attention. That generated a filter that made every thing I put my care, we seek to detail and because it was playing there .. This generated a behavior ...
Obviously, many who know me know I am a great devotee of Soda and Cerati. The explanation for this is simple. In his music and his production was order and chaos in harmony and that rafter me enough to be my essential when selecting music to listen pillar.
Then also you begin to absorb and researching ancestors and starts to find and amounts related to your liking obvious things .. name artists do not like.
With regard to production, is different .. perhaps because what prevails in most production is being carried away by what happens in during a production. That's what manda.Pero have to admit that my first search of solidity in sound come from the hand produced by Brendan O'Brien, who produced the grunge sound of the 90s ... that skinny explodes mixtures and is the day of Today I continue looking unveil some secrets ... moreover, is the type most low profile that I know, so knowing you do in the kitchen is impossible ... it also made me search endlessly through experimentation ... always with the phrase in the teeth ... be over here?
ER: As you face production jobs? Pensas you sound like a theme from inception? you need?
Pol: Mainly listening to demos or 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.
Many times the issues very clearly suggest audio, other cases, the opposite .. and that's where the interesting part comes into play, which is to experiment, try different shades, order parts, etc ...
There is no particular quest because every artist has his label and what I try to stress is that in every production, accompanied by noissette chips.
ER: How was working with The Ocean on his first EP?
Pol: A bard! lol
Nah, not at all. On the contrary, things are very talented, understanding and search. Armed with these tools, it is unlikely that things will not come to fruition.
Perhaps the 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 being oblivious to the band to decide for them.
I say it's common for this to happen as it is not very common in our market a rock band hire a producer to make your / s drives ... thus not within the normal parameters of a recording musician. Anyway this was nothing really attacks fingers and tongue that clung to Javi (laughs) ...
ER: That was what caught your eye about this job? that's what you enjoy most? and that was the most difficult?
Pol: I can not find anything that has caught my attention, but I emphasize the clarity of the query with each member. Definitely, and that makes the job more bearable.
I enjoyed the whole process from end to end with everyone because I was generating a code direct 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 for getting the brightness and character. It was very emotional too.
The hardest part was convincing Leandro .. I had to let your ex girlfriend or rewrite all guitars again ... (at the end end doing both) or explain to Javi and his favorite band also uses strong compressors battery. (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 is on two floors where floor doing most of my productions ... for two reasons, the Class A hardware that counts and the good vibes that reside there.
Also, accessible in relation to the used, gives cost advantages when working with good times without pressure or timers schedules. I really like the room is in your rec room and reflections obtained there for batteries eg. For this project it was ideal.
The share of production sequences and synths did in the control I have in my home for a matter of convenience to study instruments.
ER: You see the local and global music scene? see changes in the way you compose, produce, promote and sell music?
Pol: Well, I think that while we are globalized me pros and cons of living in a country of the third kind ... and that is very noticeable. 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 up all the time and 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 unite 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 generators pose on these events and not on domestic production .. We should put Moreno 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, things grow and that the smaller and medium artists, they are very favorable.
Also, the fact that each musician can produce music or media from home proliferates supply while demand dissolved endless possibilities it really is very difficult to predict where anger.
I think more to this than live today than in the old mechanisms of production and sale of art. So good, but we still lack clear guidelines and order in many cases.
ER: How was your experience playing in Europe with Pollen?
Pol: It was very strong. Seen from today seems like a dream .. but it was very real. We were able to obtain a very precise as they really are out there ... the things demystifying and reaffirming a lot of things vision.
I really enjoyed, but it was also 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 both festivals as in the first line under London and Barcelona. I think this 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 something cool you can do 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 nature to be. There art and creation vibrates. Is honored.
Ah .. and artists are so hung like here ... hahaha
ER: Conta where we can hear your music, your work and approach
Pol: We are currently finishing the new material to be released in the coming weeks and possibly also playing live soon.
