Interview: tony

Why the lowercase t in tony?

There isn't really a definitive answer, I guess since it's a solo act it needed a simple name to describe me.

What equipment are you using to record your music?

Literally the lowest of the low. Nothing flashy or special at all.

Who are your biggest musical influences?

My biggest musical influences range quite a bit. I'm really into progressive and experimental music, but I'm into every musical style I've been introduced to, so I try to grab up as much inspiration as possible.

Name one pre-existing piece of music you believe to have shaped Who Knows?

It's hard to choose one piece of music that influenced the album because so many styles have been fused together to create it, but I guess modern proggy tracks like "Anatomy Anomalies" by The Contortionist played a huge role as well as noisy and experimental tracks like "Sink-O" by tUnE-yArDs

What made you want to start recording your blend of experimental rock?

There were a lot of instrumental and experimental music that really appealed to me, but making my own music took that appeal to a whole new level. I just really wanted to make music that described me and my sound.

What pedals are you using on your guitar?

For now I don't use pedals, but I plan on obtaining some in the future for possible live shows.

What is the local scene like in Joilet?

It's decent, a lot of bands that get pretty successful and then randomly break up. If I had to be honest though, there's a lack of support here when it comes to music. People are already self-cantered even if they've only played one local show.

Do you intend to play live? Have you thought about playing live?

I do! I definitely have, sometimes I try to think of what my set list would consist of.

Being a multi-instrumentalist is a gift; do you feel more complete creating all your music yourself?

Definitely, I get to do what I want and make the music I want to make. Plus, I just love working on music alone. It's always been a passion of mine.

What were your intentions with Who Knows? (What are you trying to achieve.. have you recorded music before? First release you’ve put out?)

I didn't have many intentions. I went into many solo musical projects with little to no success, so the fact that I'm doing my second online interview is mind-blowing enough to me. I think I knew that I would be most successful doing THIS project, due to the fact that it's what I'm most passionate about and it's the best sounding out of all of my projects. I've released noise music in the past as well as more prog and rock music. I would give you names, but I would not want you to cringe at how bad it is.
