Oskar Schuster - Music Out Of The Subconscious Mind

Thanks to Oskar for the chance to meet him in Berlin in early September ... really enjoyed it. Published October 06 2013.

  by Mario

A while ago Oskar Schuster successfully funded his upcoming album with the support of 145 believers on Sellaband. I talked to him about his music and the crowdfunding experience ...

50K MUSIC: Who is Oskar Schuster? Please tell us something about you. Where do you come from? What are your musical roots?
Oskar: I'm a composer from Berlin. Two years ago I released my debute album, "Dear Utopia". Right now I'm finishing my second album which will be out in a few months. My musical roots are quite diverse. I grew up with pop/rock music, listening a lot to bands like the Beatles, Nirvana and Radiohead. Later I discovered Sigur Rós and Beirut, two bands that influence me very much. On the other hand I always played classical music on the piano, mostly Chopin and Schumann. I also have been interested in electronic music from an early age on. Actually I took my first steps in composition by messing around with sequencer software on my Commodore 64 when I was about ten years old. I think my music combines all those different influences. It is purely instrumental with the piano as main element, often accompanied by glockenspiel and a programmable music box. To create beats, I record the sounds of old typewriters and cameras and sample them.

Fleur Jack: Not Only "Tales From The Dodge" Is On The Way

It's been a long time since we heard of Fleur Jack. Reason enough to talk to her about what happened since then and her current plans. Thanks Fleur for answering. Published July 26 2013.

50K MUSIC: It's been a while since we've talked. What happened since then?
Fleur: I think last time we were speaking, I had just put out my debut album "Ghosts of Cimarron" and was about to embark on my first big international solo tour of the USA and Canada. WELL, on that trip, I met a man called Wesley. A very long story short; He chased me around the country, we fell in love and I moved over to the USA to be with him last June. We got married this February and we are waiting patiently for the arrival of our first son who is due August 14th (three weeks from today).

50K MUSIC: Any upcoming projects?
Fleur: Yes, my brand new CD; 'Tales from the Dodge' and a whole new band; The W Lovers! Wesley is a great musician and we started playing live together a few months ago. Wesley sings harmonies and plays along on the mandolin. It has taken us a little while to get the hang of writing together but we're getting there.

It started off as him playing along to my sets and we realised that it would be much more fun to start something brand new.

Francesca of Amycanbe at The Justin Wayne Show

Listen to the wonderful Francesca of Amycanbe at the latest edition of The Justin Wayne Show. Thanks Justin for your support so far. Published on March 23 2013.

Everyone who has listened to latest edition of The Justin Wayne Show will have noticed the interview with Amycanbe's Francesca. Justin Wayne, extremely committed to the spirit of Indie Music, is the radio host and broadcaster of his own radio show.

A few weeks ago he has discovered the music of Amycanbe, he said when he opened the interview and introduced Amycanbe and especially Francesca. She talked about where Amycanbe come from, their 2011 five song EP "The World Is Round" based on Gertrude Stein's first book for children and the collaboration with a painter who created the special drawings for a small book that came out with the EP.

Then Justin and Francesca talked about Amycanbe's engagement for Amnesty International. "It took us about two years to actually have it and finished to record it", Francesca said about the "Mountain Whales" album and this was the time, when William Poni connected them with AI. "It just happened when the album was out like a parallel process", Francesca explained.

Delaney Gibson: "Utterly Grateful For All The Outpouring Support"

Thanks to Delaney Gibson for answering my questions by email. Delaney, you're awesome. Published on April 06 2013.

Delaney Gibson should be more than happy with how her Pledgemusic project goes, and she is. She has raised more than 130% of her goal for her upcoming album "Tall Like The Tree". I talked to her about the funding and her plans ...

50K MUSIC: In your Pledgemusic pitch video you call for money. What will you use all the money for?
Delaney: Making a record costs a lot of money! I'll have to pay for a Producer, musicians, recording, mastering, photography, artwork, music videos, radio promotion, publicity, and tour support.

50K MUSIC: I guess you're happy with how the project has developed so far?
Delaney: I am, the record has been finished since last year. We've had to push back the release date in hopes to raise more money for promotion. I cannot wait until we can release this. It really is my best work to date.

Rue Royale: Join The Journey

Brookln Dekker answered my questions via e-mail. Published on Feb 02 2013.

I'm a fan of their music since "Guide To An Escape". No question for me to support their current Kickstarter project. Rue Royale are raising funds for their third album. Please consider to become a backer - still 15 days left...

50K MUSIC: You're originally hailing from Chicago. How come that you live in Nottingham (UK) now?
Brookln: That's right, I'm from Chicago. Ruth is from Staffordshire, England. She lived in the States for a few years with me but once we started touring in Europe more we decided we wanted to be nearer to that as well as nearer to Ruth's family so we moved to England and found a nice place in Nottingham.
