1997 E.V. Interview

1997 Interview
By KERVAL

Beyond the sphere of reality, the transmission has been codified. 1997 EV the Italian machinery generating a vortex through the follow lines…
What was your first exposure to Dark Ambient-electro Music, and how did your interest develop into the creation of 1997 E.V.?
It . certainly . was . an . embryo-like . sort . of . voluntas . time . before . its . emanation ... second . step . to . the . previous . spell . early . 90's ... I . guess . there . has . been . no . real . creation . or . prevented . conceptuality . behind . 97EV. since . the . very . beginning ... just . an . unpalpable . floating . re-fluxus . over . the . years ... ... ambience . and . post . drones . being . a . womb-like . refreshing . horizon .

In relationship to the name 1997 E.V., state your own definition of “ Era Vulgaris” and how its relevant in this case?
Era.Veritatis/Era.Vanitatis ... in . the . neverending . harmony . between . the . opposites ... zero.one _virgo

Your debut album “Dead.Ends.sinful” explores numerous avenues of musical experimentation. While some tracks ventures into dark ambient, others into melodic instrumental passages. Taking this into consideration how would you describe the process for the main ideas, concepts and experimentations behind this debut album?
A . floating-visionary . introspective . experience … some . kind . of . a . monadic . meltdown . process ... could . be . said ... more . or . less . the . gliding . venture . throughout . isolation ... the . same . sort . of . part . when . taking . up . risks . in . a . lonesome-like . crowded . trip ... that . is . metaphorically . speaking . of . course ... but . it . couldn't . be . spent . better . words . to . trace . the . trance . ghost . in . it ... crepuscolar . as . the . suns . gloomingly . leaving . the . days'. arms . in . a . plain . unlight ... ... other . than . that . of . the . new . post-Babylon . that . fell ... but . time . long . long . time . later ... the . "sand" . in . the . renewed . atom-like . spirit . of . its . forthcoming . wheel . is . showing . its . anoxic . delices . to . the . young . visitor ... ... On . Time.2 . are . the . things . that . lead . you . there . time . before . it . was . Time.now --

Time ago you released “lime god’s own inferno” demo tape 98 and “eridu” demo 96/97…Could you explain us a few about both releases and from your point of view how has evolved the musical identity for you as musician until now 2006 E.V.?
... both . releases . are . now . sent . to . the . past . time . elegy ... a . primordial . path ... "E.RI.DU" … considering . its . ritualist . seeds . in . the . melt-core . droning . ambience ... ... it . stands . itself . in . its . visionary . parallel . present . and . past ... it . keeps . inside . the . germs . of . the . sand ... ... taking . most . of . its . spirit . from . the . ancient . mythos . around . evocative . sacred . tablets . discovered . in . Sumer . land ... a . past . not . totally . revealed . yet . and . even . more . fascinating . than . it . is . supposed . to . be ... "Inferno".on . the . other . hand . is . a . simple . reducing . claustrophobic . synthoma . around . the . visionary . vacuums . of . celebral . galaxies . optical-tracks . freezed . in . a . frame ... coming . out . the . square-circle . within . a . noise-droning . impro . gesta•session ...
... it . is . quite . difficult . to . set . words . about . past . personal . processes ... it . all . came/comes . out . in . a . impro-like . kind . of . tension ... as . usual . I . mean . improvisation . it . is . always . been . a . main . plasmatic . fuel . in . emanating . anything . ever . since ...
... it's . like . a . projection . of . a . personal . interpretation . around . a . pseudo . platonic . parallel . inversum … same . way . as . bio-cells . or . bacterias . clone . themselves . coming . out . from . one . another ... that . you . cannot . state . about . atoms . though ... when . it . is . structured . like . a . concentric . parallel . sub-universe ... nothing . but . a . one-way . groove . dense . in . thick . haze . that . I . cannot . stop . struggling . within . my . imaginary ... what . are . the . keys . to . this . gate? _

I
liked so much the cover art at “Lime God’s Own Inferno” demo. is the cover a mirror of your own consciousness a shapeless shadowlight floating in the realm of all your mental (inferno)?
Yes ... it . is . perhaps . true ... a . geometrical . giant . speed . tunnel . in . cold . blue . energy ... reflection . of . consciousness ... but . what . is . then . consciousness . meant . to . be . all . in . all .? ... a . micro-macro-cosmical . self . surging . Inferno? ... I . don't . know _

I can smell a post –apocaliptic,destructive environment in 1997 E.V. referring the debut album’s cover art . what’s so fascinating for you when understanding the deep meanings of words Dead,Ends,Sinful? And how its related to the album concept and musical path in this album?
The . destroying . character . of . nature . played . by . life . sometimes . invisibly … sometimes . so . un-naturally … but . ever . so .“natural” … . negative . and . positive … the . other . face . of . beauty . in . nature … the . face . of . desolation . that . evocates . past . pulses . dressed . up . in . the . “desert” . sense . of . the . spirit … of . the . mind …. The . cold . cosmical . existence … the .“wheel” … natural . events . lost . past . and . parallels . through . the . cosmical . endless , chariot . the . one . ever . unending . dance . of . the . molecules . forging . incarnated . dreams .
... Environment . or . Nature . for . and . by . itself . meant . as . not . a . sensible . and . loving . kind . of . supreme . mother . at . all ... in . synthesis . it . could . be . like . the . dead.ends . of . a . cosmical . perpetual . time . wheel ... a . cynical . inexorable . mental-watch . of . some . kind . of . a , bigger ... wider ... entity . to . the . which . all . of . this . sounds . just . like . geometrically . speed-spread . atoms ... sand .... violent . pulses ... sent . in . frenetic . frequency . far . beyond . the . flaming . boundaries . of . the .“shape” …. To . the . liquid.solid.gas . final . destination ... but . maybe . there . is . some . more... (?)_

Is destruction of false morals codex,hipocresy,fear,ignorance,focused in actual society, a worth element for human freedom?
... yes . or . no ... I . don't . know . but ... are . there . any . un-false . morals ? ... humans . need . to . believe . in . something ... whatever . their . creed . is ... perhaps . it . is . a . good . dea . l . all . in . all ... I . mean . should . humans . do . otherwise? ... what . and . where . is . the . truth? _

Do you derive pleasure from Eschatological philosophy? I mean, Do you enjoy watching the decay and inevitable downfall of humanity?
... no ... not . pleasure ... interest . perhaps ... and . apart . from . the . fact . of . being . an . interesting . inevitable . perspective ... it . is . definetly . quite . sad ... we . do . all . strangely . love . to . dare . foreviewing . and . taste . most . of . the . ghosts . we . do . fear ..._

How happened you got in contact with tairy from Punch records for “Dead.Ends.Sinful” release? And what about the upcoming release?
...ahh ... it . was . like . a . chemical . wedding ... a . prismatic . substance . island . reflecting . any . weird-like . "sham.ash". on. orbit. an . inviting . and . confortable . landing . message ... Positive ... ... next . voyage . will . be . more . song-shaped .... so . that . it . needs . be . more . rest . on . "here" _

Italian Ambient/industrial scene is growing more and more…so, any worth acts coming from your city you want to mention here? And which were the principal influences when starting 1997 E.V. as a definite & concrete musical concept?
... phylosophy . surrealism . symbolism . and . futurism . are . among . the . things . most . profoundly . infected . 97EV . emo-sphere … I . make . no . mystery . of . a . deeply . conceiled . piercing . dose . of . romanticism . as . well … ... is . also . the . Sphynx . giving . deep . contribution . too ... by . the . way ...
...about . the . scene . here . instead ... no ... I'm . sorry . really ... not . any . bands . or . projects . that . I . can . reckon . or . mention . here . since . I . have . no . kind . of . info . about . any ... ... time will tell_
