Pat Cancer

 

 A few months ago we spoke to actor, director, producer and writer, Chris R. Wright. Today we speak to his close personal friend, Pat Cancer. (One could go so far as to say that Pat and Chris are extremely close. So much so that they even share a face, body and half a mind). Would you mind introducing yourself? Certainly. My name is Pat Cancer – the accent is silent. My original family name is Cake, but due to a typographical error on my birth certificate, my moniker is legally Patrice Alan Cancer. It doesn’t bother me anymore; I’d much rather have Cancer than be known as Pat A Cake for the rest of my life. I’m an ex-investment banker, […]

Interview with Cleverbot

 

 Ladies and Gentlemen, let me introduce you to Cleverbot. Cleverbot is an AI system that is designed to learn from it’s interaction with others. The system is usually chatting to around 80,000 people at a time, and is constantly assimilating new information from these conversations, as opposed to other similar system that are pre-programmed with a set of responses.  Clever bot was developed by British AI scientist Rollo Carpenter.

I don’t know. You tell me. What’s the worst part about being an AI? The fact […]

Matt Lombard

 

 Today we speak to Matt Lombard, an extremely talented artist based in the USA. Tell us about yourself and your work… I am a 45 year old artist working in photography and digital format for the past 16 years. I currently reside in the US in the state of Wisconsin. My work has a surreal and strange element to most of the themes I explore. I have always been attracted to extremes in all forms. I believe this inevitably leaks out of my subconscious and is reborn in my imagery. Like some sort of dark spiritual voice looking for a doorway to sail through. How long have you been a practicing artist? I began as an artist playing guitar for […]

AlterNation

 

 Today we chat to local photography studio, AlterNation. These guys have great talent and big ideas. What’s the history of AlterNation? The story of how AlterNation came to be is not a very long one, as I have only been doing this professionally for just over a year. I worked a desk job at a travel agency for five years before I decided to take off the uniform and follow my real dream. This wasn’t easy as I left my home and my loved ones in the Lowveld to take up an internship at a studio in Pretoria. I studied and worked hard for four months and then came home to start my own thing – and I haven’t looked […]

Future Frenetic

 

 Today we speak to British-South African band, Future Frentic. What’s the history of Future Frenetic? Early in 2006 I was DJing on the eXistanz floor a lot and found that the future-pop sound was starting to influence me a lot in what I was writing. Rather than trying to mash it into the darker, harsher sounds of Garten der Asche, I formed FutureFrenetic as a side-project for dancier, lighter, more trance-influenced sounds. The first track that dropped was called “Society in Motion” – it was an instant hit with the eXistanz crowd. What genre of music do you consider your work to be? Trance-influenced industrial. Tho’ some might call it synthpop, I don’t do the melancholy lyrics and lyrically I […]

A-Z LAN

 

 LAN… To some it used to be a hobby that is facing extinction due to the internet, while for others it is a great way of meeting new people and making friends that share the same interests as you do. Today I speak to Leigh le Roux, one of the coordinators of Pretoria-based A-Z LAN. Would you mind introducing yourself to the readers? I am Leigh, a semi-coordinator for A-Z LAN alongside some of my friends. We create an every other month LAN for the local community. Why did you decide to create A-Z LAN? We took the LAN over from the previous owners. Tell us a bit about the history of A-Z LAN? About two years ago, A-Z LAN […]

Tapewyrm

 

 Today we speak to British Hard Electro-Industrial band, Tapewyrm. What’s the history of Tapewyrm? Tapewyrm really began towards the end of 2010 as a studio based project. It didn’t really have much of a direction in it’s 1st year though, mainly existing on soundcloud as a cathartic exercise. From there it slowly grew into a more serious & focused entity. Nothing really galvanised until hooking up with Juggernaut in 2012 & releasing the debut album, Misanthropic Noize, in 2013. I followed that with the House of Cards EP on New Years Eve 2013 & have another EP in the works for release sometime soon. What genre of music do you consider your work to be? I honestly try not to […]

Dan Palmer

 

 Today we speak to British actor, Dan Palmer. What was the first production you ever worked on? The first production I ever worked on was an educational short film when I was 12 years old. It was made by a local film school and they picked my comprehensive school as a location as it was pre-war and the concept revolved around time-traveling kids going back to the 40s. It turned out the film students were being a tad cheeky by telling the faculty that the film was intended for TV ..which was total horse shit. One of the students cut my hair into a bowl-cut without parental permission and actually cut my ear with the scissors! The experience was great […]

K-Bereit

 

 Today we speak to French Glamustrial band, K-Bereit. What’s the history of K-Bereit? Too long to tell. Well, I’ll try to be short: Dominique is the mastermind of Kriegbereit and Cobalt 60. After success and end of those groups, he spend almost 10 years having a normal life with family and stuff. He met a guy who convince him that with his name they could do something. The fact was that during 10 years Dom did everything, and was not considered as the leader. I met them on April 2012. Dom wanted to stop. I was them perform and like the music. They asked me to become their manager for fun, and it works: listening to my advice we tour […]
