Some Eat it Raw
What’s the idea behind the secret track on Some Eat it Raw?
Ha! Well, there are some great underground events in Italy, where many talented artists from all around the world come and perform mostly theatrical shows. The one that struck me the most was a human circus, not a slick, cute and commercial one like Cirque du Soleil, but rather trashy and real: people imitating lions and jumping through fire rings and getting wiped. I taped parts of the show and here you have a bit of it!
Can you tell us a bit about the recent DJ Orchestra in Montreal?
I wanted to create a collective of DJs because we all work in our own little bubble in a DJ booth all alone in front of big crowds. The DJ Orchestra project is very challenging and disturbing for the artists, but also worth it. The result is very interesting but the process is what we find amazing. In terms of the Montreal scene, it’s evolving but is in a smooth phase right now. We are lucky to be able to travel and play all around the world; working from Montreal is nice, even though the Berlin calling rings from time to time! (Circus Company)
