Star Apps Cabaret Voltaire?Arts

It was very exciting to me. I did go to clubs like Danceteria and Area, but the main thing that I remember was meeting with William Burroughs and John Giorno, because I had been a n of Burroughs since the mid-s. I was a -year-old kid when I got Naked Lunch, and I had met Burroughs twice before. Someone arranged for us to go to the Bunker. I think we did a photograph session, cause we had given John Giorno a track for one of his compilations.


When we started in the mid-s, Sheffield was a grim place to be. There were no real bands playing original or experimental music at that time. All you had was heavy rock bands [Iron Maiden and Def Leppard] or bands who played cover versions of chart music. There were a few clubs where they played James Brown and funk and disco. But there wasnt a scene of experimental music until Cabaret Voltaire came along and did our first live show in , which ended up in mayhem, because some people in the audience took offense to the kind of stuff we were doing, which no one had really done. So I think the scene coalesced around Cabaret Voltaire, and then later came Human League. 本文来自织梦

Yeah, even though the music was commercial, we were still dealing with the same kind of ideas about control and people being manipulated by the media and governments. It was still pretty subversive music for those days. Even though we called it dance music, a lot of people would say that in anyones definitions of dance music, it was still a little bit strange in a lot of respects.


I think its music that different generations will discover, and I feel the same way [as] a writer [who] wants to keep their books in print. Im not a big n of downloading music, so I always try to make sure that things can be reissued on CD or vinyl, cause thats how I still prefer to listen to music, rather than an MP. 内容来自dedecms

What are your top mobile apps?


I cant answer that, because I only have a really old mobile phone, and it doesnt have any apps on it. I dont have an iPad, either. Im not a Twitter-type person. I cant see the point in it, which may sound strange from someone who has a background in technology, but I just let other people get along with all that. There is an official Cabaret Voltaire Facebook page, but I dont get involved with that.


Sensoria is certainly your most popular track to this day. Whats the story behind it? copyright dedecms

I think its the one that people seem to focus on the most. Maybe because it had a really cool video, which won awards, and was the first music video requested by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Surprisingly it didnt go on the charts in England. It did well in clubs but never crossed over in a big, commercial way. But it still sounds good to this day, so there must be something special about it. 内容来自dedecms

Im in touch with Chris quite a lot, and Stephen not so much. Basically those guys left -- Chris in and Stephen in and moved to Australia for years or so. So I just wanted to carry on being the curator of Cabaret Voltaire. At the same time, I am working on some new material and am going to be performing live later this year. But it will just be myself and some machines.

If someone asks me. I havent been to the States since . Its weird, but I havent had that many invitations. Id love to go. I always enjoyed spending time in America. So it would be great.


I have two distinct ways of working. One is using a lot of MIDI equipment, which involves analog synthesizers and using MIDI to program and sequence things. Im still using a very old computer called an Atari ST, which Ive been using since the late s. I just hook that up to some samplers and some MIDI analog keyboards and just run everything from that and then record it on to a Mac G that Ive been using for a long time. Sometimes I just record stuff in Pro Tools, digitally, using multitrack plug-ins and stuff like that. So I have two ways of working, and both are out of date. But they work for me, so Im sticking to them. 本文来自织梦

Was there ever a concern about going too mainstream? 织梦内容管理系统

Cabaret Voltaire hails from Sheffield, England, as do your contemporaries ABC, Human League, and Heaven . What was Sheffields music scene like in the s? 本文来自织梦

The story behind it is we did the Micro-Phonies album, and Sensoria was part of that. It was actually two tracks, Do Right and Sensoria. We worked with a guy named Robin Scott, who was well known as M for Pop Music. We got him involved as producer, and it was his idea to put a hip-hop thing where people were starting to cut two different tracks together to make a new track, and that was his idea to do that. We brought another guy in named John Potoker, who was a cool engineer who had worked with Miles Davis and also Brian Eno and David Byrne. We spent a week in the studio with him, working on that track, and it was very difficult to organize, cause there was so much going on -- the ct that it was two tracks edited together. Bear in mind that we didnt have the sampling and computer technology that makes doing stuff like that so easy nowadays. So it was a long process. We were working nights in the studio starting at five and working till five in the morning, so it was quite an intense session. But by the end of it, we knew we had something pretty cool. A lot of that came down to John Potoker. 织梦内容管理系统

We were getting more into New York electro and dance music, and that was influencing what we did quite a lot. We thought it was a good direction to go in, because we had always been really into dance music, but never tried to do it in the earlier work so much. But then technology changed, and I started using live sequencers and programmable drum machines, and it just lent itself to a more stripped-back kind of sound that would work in clubs. We never got played by the radio, so we thought that maybe its ter to make music thats club friendly, because at least well get it across to people in some way.


Do you still keep in touch with the former members? copyright dedecms

You also have a solo career. So why is it important to you to keep Cabaret Voltaire alive with continued releases? 织梦好,好织梦

WhenWhen electropunk trio Cabaret Voltaire performed its first show in Sheffield in , Richard H. Kirk, Stephen Mallinder, and Chris Watson were assaulted by the mostly antagonistic crowd. The band red ter ween and , when they signed a deal with Virgin and developed a more commercial, club-friendly pop sound. Now down to single member, Richard H. Kirk, Cabaret Voltaire pays tribute to its golden, major-label era with the new -track compilation (Electropunk to Technopop -), featuring boundary-pushing electronic gems Nag Nag Nag, Do the Mussolini (Headkick), Sensoria, Landslide, I Want You, and Just Fascination. I chatted with Kirk about the new compilation, his preferred recording software, whether hell tour the US anytime soon, and why he isnt a n of social media.
