I basically felt that even on a personal level, for myself and my own sanity, on “From Untruth” I needed to express some things very directly. I love abstract and instrumental music and improvising without lyrics, but there’s something about the moment and what is happening that made me want to put out some kind of a reaction.
If we don’t attach that gravity to it, it’s meaningless and we refuse to contribute to the morass of abstraction within music – we don’t dedicate our lives to just merely be entertainers for wealthy people. We use our music and our platform that we have in order to generate progress and further our conditions and beliefs as people, politically and otherwise.
„I became bored with the guitar, so I tried to make it sound like something else. Finally, I got something else – I bought a synthesizer, drum machine and after a few years… I came back to the guitar. If I play it now, I like it to have a clean sound, I don’t use a lot of effects because I actually missed the guitar itself, its sound. On Elephantine I play the guitar again. In a way I think that was kind of being inspired by an instrument again.”
