Andrew Muecke – Andrew Muecke 1991 – 2020: A Collection [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Evocative ambient soundscaping

How would you describe your musical progress over the years?

From ‘loud, busy and slightly experimental’ to ‘softer, less busy but still slightly experimental’

Which song of the album reflects you the most?

I think song four, Devotion, which uses a vocal sample sung in an unknown Indian dialect. I think that it is relatable yet surprising. I like the idea of being relatable but surprising!

Do you have an artist that you would describe as a hidden gem that we should know about?

David Sylvian. He spoke of trying to “blow peoples hearts wide open” with his music and he has done that for me, many, many times

What would you change in the music industry?

It needs to embrace musical originality more. A lot of current music sounds too similar

Which book should we read while listening to your music?

“Reverence for Life: The Ethics of Albert Schweitzer for the Twenty-First Century”. For my musical project HAPPY GHOSTS, I based a whole album around his philosophy and called it REVERENCE FOR LIFE. An extraordinary human being

You’d give up making music for…

Helping others to make music!

Thank you!
