Interview with the prolific IDM producer Iameb 57. For more information on his project go to his website or here. Also be sure to check out his amazing track Rope Bleed on the Wounds of the Earth Compilation II
Firstly, tell us about the name of your project, Iameb 57. How did you come up with it / what does it mean?
How did you get into IDM/electronic music? What are your influences?
Tell us about the process of creating your latest album, Tipsy Hax.
One thing I noticed was that a lot of your songs are rather short, like 2 minutes or less. Any particular reason you like creating short pieces?
What equipment are you using? hardware/software? What's your favorite gear?
VST's: FM7,FM8, Unique, Sylenth, ..and other various Vst Plugins/Synths
Hardware: Korg nano (Midi Keyboard), Korg MicroKORG Synthesizer/Vocoder, Alesis MICRON Analog Modeling Synthesizer, and a Sp202 Sampler.
So you have two other projects, Artificial Dreamer and Enabl.ed, tell us a bit about those.
Enabl.ed was an alias name I made due to my signing with Nueva Forma. I made an agreement with the label that my iameb 57 releases will stay on Nueva Forma under the terms of the contract. So making "Enabl.ed" gives me more the opportunity to release with other labels. My Enabl.ed productions are very similar to my iameb 57 productions. No change in genre at all. If you like all my iameb 57 material, my Enabl.ed releases are just as good. :-)
What do you have planned for the future?
