When performing on stage, have you ever felt tempted to 'go full rock star' and smash all the musical instruments ?
Our sound engineer goes apeshit if we put slightly-kinked cables back in the trunk, he'd fucking kill us if we started breaking stuff.
And we're totally not into generating plastic landfill.
The construction of goatrance in the 90s and studio setups fascinates me.
One small bit of info on the net is your quote in The Local Scenes and Global Culture of Psytrance book. Could you expand? Did you have a typical writing / workflow process for trance tunes?
How important was having the sampler do melodic duties?
And could you talk about the importance of the Kurzweil k2000?
Did / do you prefer writing a tune with a synth per track? Any tips for writing a track with less than one synth per track and layering it to write a tune?
Multitracking was somewhat rare for 90s goa no?

I really love your music, and I have a lot to tell you. Fairchildren is the best album I have ever heard !! From start to finish, it's really beautiful. But my question is directed towards your origins, I would like to know how you started in music? I would also like to compose music and I would be inspired to read your story since I don't know where to start
