Cinema - A Origem

Dom Cobb é um talentoso ladrão, o melhor na arte da extracção: ele rouba segredos e ideias às pessoas directamente das profundezas das suas mentes, durante os sonhos – estado em que a nossa mente está mais vulnerável. A rara habilidade de Cobb fez dele uma das pessoas mais influentes neste novo mundo de espionagem empresarial, mas também fez dele um fugitivo internacional e custou-lhe tudo o que já amara. Mas agora foi-lhe oferecida uma oportunidade para se redimir. Um último trabalho pode devolver-lhe a sua antiga vida. Em vez do assalto perfeito, Cobb e a sua equipa de especialistas têm exactamente de fazer o inverso: instalar uma ideia na mente de alguém. Se tiverem sucesso, poderá ser o crime perfeito. Mas todo o cuidado é pouco, pois têm um perigoso inimigo cada vez mais perto, que só Cobb poderia ter visto aproximar-se.

Em exibição aqui.

Front Line Assembly Interview

Entrevista a Front Line Assembly

Os Front Line Assembly têm tido uma participação activa na cena Electro/industrial mundial nos últimos 24 anos. Aparte de algumas mudanças de alinhamento têm-se mantido sempre fiéis ao seu estilo individual.

Please introduce us to your current lineup and tell us something about each band member’s function.
Bill Leeb - Founder and songwriter, lyrics and electronic executioner.
Chris Peterson - Electronic industrial programmer producer
Jeremy Inkel - Programmer synthesizer, production songwriter
Jared Slingerland - Guitarist, song writer, programmer
How does it happen that Rhys Fulber is not part of the current lineup?
Front Line Assembly has always had a open door policy in regards to line up. After extensive touring with our current line up, a unique chemistry was formed between the four of us. Originally, Rhys had intended on doing some work on IED but was busy with several other commitments (Fear Factory being one of them). By the time Rhys' schedule had cleared, we had already completed the foundation of the record and felt that it was perfect exactly the way it was. There is always the possibility for Rhys to return in the future but in this particular case the elements just didn't align for his involvement.
On your new record “IMPROVISED ELECTRONIC DEVICE”, we find some lyrics sung in German again, like on “Civilisation”. May German FLA fans interpret this as a compliment or do you feel somehow connected to Germany in any other way?
Well seeing as I was born in Vienna, Austria, I have always considered German to be my mother language. I will always feel a huge kinship towards Germany and Austria. I also wanted to pay homage to all of the German speaking people because I feel that electronic music was born in Germany, the forefathers of electronic music all being there; Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Knomie, Faust, etc.
Some of the songs, like “Hostage”, sound quite technoid. Some songs, like “Release”, come up in a very rock oriented style. In contrast to this, your last album solely had electronic sounds. How come that tracks on “IMPROVISED ELECTRONIC DEVICE” appear in such a diverse way?
The fact that this album was the biggest collaboration between 4 guys that we've done, the joint effort is where the diversity comes from We each sort of excel in different areas, when you put it all together this is what you get. We also do not want to be a one dimensional band, we like to incorporate all musical elements providing they fit. At the end of the day we don't like to limit ourselves to any particular style or sound, we just let creativity take its own form.
After having listened to “IMPROVISED ELECTRONIC DEVICE” for the first time, I received the impression that this CD sounds like a retrospective of FLA’s productive period. Just a coincidence or purpose?
We have encompassed all of the best elements from the past, but I think we have also thrown quite a new spin on the sound because of all the new angles of input. Having said that, we feel at the same point once you create a certain sound you not feel discouraged to revisit or maintain it. The face and originality of a band is really what's key and important to maintaining a good perspective and reflection of the art.
FLA is often mentioned in the same breath as German or North-European EBM. Do you like European EBM and can you identify with it?
There is so many forms of electronic music that I think there's good and bad in each element. I think that good EBM and there is not-so-good EBM. There is definitely the ground breaking EBM like Nitzer, DAF, and Front 242 which are totally classic. I will always pay homage to those influential groups.
How do you consider the future of electronic music in America and Europe?
Electronic music has splintered off in so many different veins, it is really hard to grasp the final outcome. As long as technology keeps evolving, so will electronic music, good and bad.
What is the philosophical background of the FLA concept?
Trust no one, always believe there is more than 1 side to every story. Think for yourself and don't buy into the hypocrisy or the man made laws that try to control our civilization.
Your CDs always come up with an absolutely great artwork. Do you constantly collaborate with the same designer or do you purposefully watch out for congenial artists to implement your own ideas?
We consider Dave McKean as a official member of Front Line Assembly. We think that he is always at the cutting edge of creating illustrations that relate to what we are doing, we will probably always continue using him. One of the great things of working with Dave, is that we don't really tell him what type of imagery we are looking for, he just responds to the music and it is the greatest type of collaboration between two artists.
Now let us consider the songs in detail. “Afterlife” is a gorgeous ballad distinctive of FLA, just in the vein of “Threshold”. What is the central theme of this great song?
All the time lost between me and my now deceased father and our one and only meeting after 20 years in Vienna, Austria. We didn't really have enough time to get to know each other again. Hopefully there is more to life than just death.
I dare say that “Angriff” is one of the best songs on “IMPROVISED ELECTRONIC DEVICE”. Here we also find the German lyrics already mentioned above. What was your desire to express with this song?
This song relates to mostly to the fact that the first time we went to Russia it had quite a astonishing impact on all of us. Mainly because of the background of the country and its historical symbolism which really relates to Front Line Assembly's imageryUpon visiting tomb of the unknown solider, the lyrics from Angriff came to be. A very profound trip, Country and experience, and one that will always be remembered.
Due to Al Jourgensen of Ministry, “Stupidity” comes up with a completely different sound compared to the rest of the songs. What was your intention? Did you want to create a powerful, harsh Industrial hit, or is this song a preview of forthcoming FLA-albums?
This song was a real joint collaboration between all respective artists. We had guest guitarist Justin Hagberg from 3 Inches of Blood on the track as well as Al Jourgenson. We didn't intend necessarily on making a powerful industrial hit or previewing a forthcoming direction, we just let Al get his hands dirty and put his own spin on the song. We felt he came up with a harsh industrial hit, intended or not.
In the last years, pirate copying and illegal downloading became more and more important to musicians. To which extent do you feel the negative effects of this?
Our sales has taken the most negative impact of downloading. Good or bad, we can't turn the clock back everything happens for a reason. At this point it does feel like music had become a disposable product that you can get for free on most torrent sites. As for what the future will bring none of us will really be able to tell, good or bad. Until the mindset of people change towards the whole concept of free downloading, technology won't be much use to us.
What do you think are the most effective things to react to this trend?
Difficult to say at this time, many labels and artists are taking a different approach to selling records by offering extra content with a physical CD, etc. The industry is undergoing a major shift and we will see how it all pans out over the next decade or so.
What has been your source of motivation for now almost 25 years to continue a band project and to collaborate in a highly creative way?
I think that creativity is just something that comes from within you, it doesn't function on an on and off level. I'm a very reactionary person, everyday i get up and see all the different view points in life of which I have to continuously respond to. As long as that feeling continues to get evoked in me I will continue to get creative.
In which countries do you have the best-attended concerts and where do you have the craziest fans?
We love playing all over the world but Europe is by far where we have the best attended concerts. Russia I would say had the craziest fans, most likely due to the fact that artists such as us have only been allowed to enter the country and perform over the last couple decades.
Can you please give us some details about your live-dates in Europe?
16 Jul 2010 Tivoli Utrecht, ., NETHERLANDS
17 Jul 2010 Gothic Festival Waregem, Belgium, BE
18 Jul 2010 Corporation Sheffield, UK, GB
19 Jul 2010 Classic Grand Glasgow, UK, GB
20 Jul 2010 O2 Academy Islington London, UK, GB Find Tickets
22 Jul 2010 Lucerna Music Bar Prag, CZECH REPUBLIC
23 Jul 2010 Majestic Music Club Bratislava, Slovakia, SK
25 Jul 2010 Amphi Festival Köln, Germany, DE
28 Jul 2010 Ikra Moscow, RUSSIAN FEDERATION
29 Jul 2010 Zal Ozhidaniya St Petersburg, RUSSIAN FEDERATION
Potentially we will be coming back in October to extensively tour Europe again in support of our new record. Expect a lot of new songs and a lot of old songs.
Where do you also go on tour outside of Europe?
We will possibly being doing a month in North America as well in the near future.

What are your future plans? Are there any plans for a video or even something really exciting in order to celebrate your 25th anniversary?
Nasty Byte is actually making a video for us for the song "Shifting Through the Lens'. We have no idea of time of completion though.
Thank you for the interview. Maybe you wish to tell your fans something?
We appreciate all the fan support throughout the years and we hope that you will enjoy the new album and come and see us play when we make it to your city.

Cinema - O Escritor Fantasma

Um escitor-fantasma aceita o encargo de terminar de escrever as memórias do Primeiro-Ministro britânico, Adam Lang. Viaja, a meio do Inverno, para uma casa com vista para o mar, numa ilha próxima da costa leste dos Estados Unidos, com o intuito de começar a trabalhar no projecto. Mas no dia seguinte à sua chegada, um antigo ministro acusa Lang de autorizar a captura ilegal de suspeitos terroristas e de os entregar à CIA para serem submetidos a tortura – um crime de guerra. A acusação traz uma multidão de repórteres e manifestantes à mansão da ilha onde Lang vive com a sua mulher, Ruth, e a sua assistente pessoal (e amante), Amelia. À medida que o escritor vai avançando com o seu trabalho, começa também a descobrir pistas que apontam para uma ligação sinistra de Lang à CIA… e que, de alguma maneira, esta informação se encontra encoberta no manuscrito que lhe foi entregue e estava sendo escrito por uma escritor fantasma contratado antes de si e fora encontrado misteriosamente morto.
