Interview with Swedish electro pop queen Emmon

There are frequent rumors that a new album is on its way, true or not?

That is true, and if all goes as planned, the third album with Emmon will be released on Wonderland Records in Sweden in the spring of 2011. “I am just now completing the final mixes to disk.” First single “Distance” from the album will be released in March. “In parallel we will head off to Berlin to record a video for single number two, which will be released later this spring.”

Will we recognize the sound from the previous album, or will it be pretty much the same?

“It will still probably sound very much Emmon but with some new influences. From the responses I received from people who have heard the new material, says the sound is a little darker and harder in the production. All songs emanates from what I think is exciting and inspiring. And since I’m most active in my music making during the darkest time of year so I think even that will to some extent color the music.”

Your last album was very much a classic synth pop record with all the right basses and melodies. What do you use in your music production process, the work in the studio and who is involved.

“Trying to describe a creative process is extremely difficult. There is no exact formula for creating music, it usually happens just by itself. For me it’s about finding the focus of a mood or feeling that you want to portray and then try to convey this in a good manner.

Previously I have done everything myself during the entire process, from writing songs, record, produce, mix and fix album art.”

This time Emmon has chosen to involve Jimmy Monell (mixed the album for the indie-op act Paris some time back). “He is extremely skilled and have worked a long time as an experienced musician and producer. We work very well together and we have the same taste when it comes to music and influences. He complements me incredibly well in many areas and is very easy to interpret what kind of feeling it is that I want to convey with my music and manage to enhance it further.”

What are your inspirations and how is your relationship to today´s electronic music scene?

“What inspire me the most are movies and pictures. As long as I can remember I have always related my creativity and music to images. A creation of a song probably works in much the same way as when directing the screenplay for a movie sequence. It’s all about feel and timing. Currently I am also very keen on horror movies, which probably also is reflected in some of my recent works. The dream would be to ever get the opportunity to make music for a really good film.

I listen to and find inspiration from many different genres of music but of course my heart beats a little extra hard for electronic music. I often seek music that is somewhat dark, and experimental and like bands and artists such as Crystal Castles, Salem, Simian Mobile Disco, The XX, Pj Harvey, The Cure and The Parallax Corporation etc

My vision for the new album has been to create a kind of epic horror film script of warped and mysterious music events while I at the same time wanted to come closer to the music, which once made me want to start creating electronic music.”

Kevorkian in London

October 18, 2007 · Posted in Electronic Music · Comment 

After three days in London and getting back to Sweden at 1AM I am still trying to recover from a hectic time in the big city. Long days of working and joining parties paired with long nights together with the new R4 has hopefully resulted in something nice.

I have sent out my new song Kevorkian out for review and hopefully I will be able to post it here in a couple of days. As expected the RPG-8 is nice tool, however I haven´t really figured out yet how to make the most of the ReGroove-machine – not so intuitive as many of the other Reason tools, hmm will see

Btw saw that Emmon was lined up together with Thermostatic for the Xmas event, should be OK I think

Ciao
