Bestial Mouths Fill The Darkenin Heart Questionnaire

Darkenin Heart

What do you consider to be the darkest piece of music you’ve ever heard?
I don’t know if I have a specific song, but to me nothing gets to my soul and heart like a violin. Or perhaps fife and drum music, born out of slaves expressing sorrow and agony, trying to stay alive.

How would you characterize your own music?
I would like to call it modern dark music; it speaks of truths about us and the world which many are not willing or too afraid to face. It takes elements not only from the music of the past and present but also art, smells, sounds—everything, so that’s why I feel it’s modern.

What are your musical aspirations?
To always be involved in music and to be experiencing it in whatever form that takes.

What are your main musical inspirations?
A lot of my musical inspirations come from nature and life—it’s all around. As far as genres I started listening to punk at age 12, and from there I got into goth, industrial, noise, deathrock, new wave, hardcore, EBM, post-punk, minimal, maximal, experimental and of course: Brit pop.

What are your main goals in life?
A huge goal in life is love and connection. I want to leave something positive in this world and hope that in some way I have connected with people in a positive way.

What motivates you to create?
I truly can not answer that with a direct answer because I honestly do not know. I often wonder this myself, but it’s there in me and in some form it has to come out.

Are you more of an early bird or a night owl?
I’m more of a dog, haha! I can sleep anywhere and any time, no matter how loud. I prefer to get up early as I wake up fast and get moving, but it only lasts for a few hours. But then I can also stay up all night and create too. The best life for me is being awake a few hours at a time and sleeping and working.

Besides music, what other art forms would you like to explore?
Soooo many! I’ve explored a lot fashion and costume design, visual displays, furniture and uphold art, and collage work. I have done drawings and paintings, but at this time it doesn’t move me—though rebuilding discarded objects into something useful and beautiful does.

Which is the very first record that had a big impact on you?
I know I should know this, but truth is I am very bad with details of things. Things stay with me as feelings, and sometimes I don’t know I know what I know. You could mention a record I’ve listen to and loved a million times but if you said do you know this, I probably wouldn’t recognize the name. Play it and it floods back.
What pops up now, though, is The Violent Femmes self-titled ‘83 album, Jesus & Mary Chain’s ‘Automatic’, and Echo and The Bunnymen. But there’s so many memories attached to those.

What is the best decade for music?
Why not now—or possibly the future….

What do your future plans include?
That changes all the time. Planting black apple trees, raising butterflies, continued animal rescue, community outreach with children and the disabled. Whale watching, the Northern lights…I could go on and on, but mostly: community and connection.

R.O.T.T. (inmyskin) will be released on August 11th, 2023 via Negative Gain Productions.
