In our series of short interviews with Ad Noiseam artists, we sit down today with Raoul Sinier. With four releases so far on Ad Noiseam, including the "Brain Kitchen" and "Tremens Industry" full length album, more artwork and videos that you can shake a stick at, this Paris-based musician, painter and graphic artist has been at the center of the life of Ad Noiseam in the recent years. He has now started to write a new album to come out in 2011, following another forthcoming EP for the young british label Oeuvre, expected in January. Let's see what he has to say about the past, present and future of his multidimensional creations:
You remember that Niveau Zero rocks harder than you, right? Or that he put the Maschinenfest crowd to its knees a couple of months ago? Here we are at it again, with three new videos showing more than half an hour of the man wrecking havoc in Rennes, France last month. Mind you, this town is also the cradle of the famous Peace Off / Ruff labels, so Niveau Zero couldn't afford to under-deliver. But I'd definitely call this "over-deliver" this time around.
Here's the first part of these three videos. The other two are after the cut.
Click below for five videos shot on November 24th at Berlin's Mikz during the Hecq live show and DJ set by your truely at the Impulse / In Beat We Trust party. They were all shot in night vision, which gives quite a military look to everything, but rest assured that all we were assaulting the audience with were heavy beats and deep basses, except for the occasional cigarette smoke.
Anyway, read below for Black Lung's statement about this, and note that a brave Australian fan confirmed that he actually received his ordered copy of "The Soul Consumer". So some parcel are actually let through down under.
While some early birds had been able to snatch them at the Maschinenfest last month, here they are, officially out and available for everybody, the new Ad Noiseam t-shirts. This time around, you'll be able to wear proudly your support of Niveau Zero and Subheim. Heavy basses and metal, or orchestral atmospheres and jazz tones? Maybe both.
