Meet Pol Goz ... 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, epicentric and eschatological ... But I like to focus on the first part of the prayer ... talent ..
It is known that the second language of rock is Spanish, and all Spanish-speaking countries by far ... far .. Argentina is the one that had more development, more artists, generated the scene almost simultaneously with what passed in England and the United States without an assessment of quality or taste, it is enough to say without fear equivocarce that are between 3 countries with the greatest tradition and development in rock and pop.
In this context, we are full of talent ... a talent very many times ignored by the industry, so we find it is quite an event, recognize it is an obligation, and consume is an enjoyment ..
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 introduce an emerging talent as a musician and producer talking about what we care at all ... music ... Gran responsible for the sound of our EP, architect ... .Ground Control to major Pol ....
The Ruffian: Tell us how you started your career as a musician and producer
Pol: Well, I started as a musician, then devine at producer almost without realizing it ... .As musician, I started singing from an early age and then reaching adolescence was the turn of the instrument ... at that time the guitar. I was always self-taught scholar, so I resolved 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 mastering roughly composition, my voice and my instrument needed to make them live together in harmony and also find record of a quick and concise way 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 perfect the production thereof and also the alternative to earn my bread 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 Zeta Bosio in your Alert label Discos and other assistant engineers and producers.
After a while I got the responsibility to me to make productions and that made the responsibilities and sensations to handle .. something I like to face. So were adding to the production of increasingly complex and put it in some way, with more limited time, etc ...
All those years were great learning, sweat and testing ... .Ahí was where I really began to understand that it was fully produced.
ER: What were your influences in both roles?
Pol: Many, like all artists ... but especially pop and rock the world. Always seek what most resonated in me, never felt betraying my taste, trying to impose listening algoque not attract my attention. That generated a filter that made every thing that put my attention, I look to the last detail and because that was playing there .. This generated a behavior ...
Obviously, many who know me know I'm great devotee of Soda and Cerati. The explanation for this is simple. In its music and its production was the order and chaos in harmony and that cabio me enough to be my essential when selecting music to listen pillar.
Then one also begins to absorb and researching ancestors and so begins to find a similar amounts to your taste .. appoint obvious things artists do not like.
With respect to production, is different .. perhaps because most prevalent in production is go with what happens in during a production. That's what manda.Pero have to admit that my first search of solidity in sound produced come from the hand of Brendan O'Brien, producer of the grunge sound of the 90 ... that skinny blows mixtures thereof and day Today I keep looking unveil some secrets ... moreover, is the type most low profile I know, so knowing you do in the kitchen is impossible ... it also made me search incessantly through experimentation ... always with the phrase in the teeth ... be around here ??
ER: As you face production jobs? as pensas the sound of a topic from the outset? 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 .. just have to dress her adecuada.Uno how serious his tailor.
Often the issues clearly suggest an audio other cases, the opposite .. and that is where comes into play the most interesting part, which is experiment, try different shades, order parts, etc ...
There is a particular search, because every artist has his seal and I'm trying to emphasize 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, they are very talented beings, understanding and search. Armed with these tools, it is unlikely that things will not come to fruition.
Perhaps the oddest (and is something that happens very often) is that cost them loose to the idea of being produced by someone outside the band. This occurred for two reasons ... attachment to demos and experimentation to work with another being outside the band to decide for them.
I say it is common for this to happen because it is not very common in our market that a rock band hire a producer to make his / s drives ... therefore falls outside the normal parameters of recording a musician. Anyway this was nothing compared to the attacks of fingers and tongue that clung to Javi (laughs) ...
ER: That was what most call your attention to this work? that's what you enjoy most? and that was the hardest?
Pol: can not find something that has caught my attention, but I emphasize clarity Search 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 of particular understanding and felt very comfortable in that environment. With each person that one sees in this work always learn something new and this time it was given all the time. I remember very intense sessions Eddy voices because his voice is a rough diamond polishing was to know to take maximum brightness and character. It was very emotional too.
The hardest part was convincing Leandro .. he had to leave his ex girlfriend or rewrite all guitars again ... (the term end doing both) or Javi and explain to your favorite band also uses strong compressors the 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 "Whopper" 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 which account and the good vibes that resides there.
Also accessible in relation to the used, cost gives advantages when working with good times and schedules without pressures or timers. I like the room is in your rec room and reflections that there are obtained for batteries eg. For this project was ideal.
The share of production sequences and synths we did in the control I have in my home as a matter of convenience with instruments study.
ER: You see the local and global music scene? changes you see in the way of composing, producing, promoting and selling music?
Pol: Well, I think that while we have globalized 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 date losses of all kinds.
However, the wheel keeps turning and all the while giving new exponents fight and keep the flame of rock Argentilingo ... but it would be interesting that we relax a little and let's all unite and support each other to achieve a movement appear in common call back the public's interest.
It is true also that both international artist disembarking 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 the printing press in antiquity 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 that grows and artists smaller and medium, they are very favorable.
Also, the fact that each musician can 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 live today, in ancient mechanisms of production and sale of art. So good, but still lack order and clear guidelines in many cases.
ER: 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 things as they really are out there ... demystifying and reaffirming a lot of things vision.
Really enjoyed it very much, but it was also very weird going to touch them to ellos..no? ... However, to our surprise, were very well received and celebrated at every show. They do not judge ... enjoy.
We played something like 9 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 unlimited, and to show what you do across boundaries or kilometers is something great that can 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 the art and creation vibrates. This honor.
Ah .. and artists are so hung like here ... lol
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 playing live too soon.
Here I give you some links where they can be aware of what we do with pollen or, introduce a ...

Greetings, complacency and love for all.
