Schallwellenmagie – Entering a new decade

Dear friends, guests, fans and lovers of Electronic Music and Schallwellenmagie,

it´s the time to say thank you for all the support you gave us in 2009.

We will continue sharing our discoveries in the world wide web, for example great producers or controllers and other stuff related to electronic music we would like to recommend. But – thats not all! We also keep on growing.

We would like to announce that we are thinking seriously about launching a netlabel in 2010!
Besides our soon coming new own stuff we plan to release productions of our friends as well. So from any point of view the next year will be definitely a Schallwellenmagie year!

Alongside DJing we are working on performing our music live on stage with plentiful space for improvisation so that every event will be totally different and unique. First rehearsals take place in April, results will be available around that time.

There is lots of stuff to come so join us, follow us (Jörg Ralf), together we can make all this happen… and we all will be part of it. Again we would like to say thank you, and wish everyone of you the best of what the 21st century has to offer for the next year.

See you in 2010!

As always, here is the interview:

Schallwellenmagie: Since when are you active as a producer ?
Radio Guidance: DJ since 2003,  producer since 2006

Schallwellenmagie: Who or what has you most strongly affected to make music ?
Radio Guidance: Actually I came from a family where music was always very present, so it is part of my day-to day since ever. I think making music is a challenge that never runs out and it always leaves me wanting to work more in search of new harmonies, rhythms and musical structures. Dedication and persistence are the key to achieve a result artistically relevant.

Schallwellenmagie: Who are the artists with the biggest influence on your music ?
Radio Guidance: It´s not a simple question, but certainly that´s some important influences: Model 500, John Coltrane, Kraftwerk, Daniel Bell, Basic Channel, Carl Craig, Lee Perry.

Schallwellenmagie: How long does it take you to produce a track usually and at what aspect of producing you spent most of your time?
Radio Guidance: It depends, but considering that I was already happy with the global idea, I believe that on average two weeks. Equalization, compression, limiting, noise reduction and other processes consume a lot of time, but I like to do. I like to sculpt the sounds and turn my musical message clear.

Schallwellenmagie: What is the biggest challenge for you when creating a new track ?
Radio Guidance: The biggest challenge is to create an interesting dynamic that hold the attention, have feel and make dance.

Schallwellenmagie: How difficult is it for you to find one point on which you can let stand a track how it is, without making changes again and again?
Radio Guidance: Well, In my case this happens when I feel that there is a reason for every movement, every element in this music… it´s not something easy to explain. When I´m changing too much is because the initial idea was not good and then the project goes to the refrigerator.

Schallwellenmagie: Tell us about the hard/software you are using to create electronic music.
Radio Guidance: Softwares: Ableton Live and some VSTs like Reaktor and Absynth. Hardware: Motu soundcard, Vírus TI , Roland SH 101, mixer Yamaha MG124cx, Yamaha monitors.

Schallwellenmagie: Your currently number one DJ/Live acts?
Radio Guidance: DJ Ricardo Villalobos

Schallwellenmagie: Your currently number one clubs / Live Festivals?
Radio Guidance: MOO parties in Rio.

Schallwellenmagie: If you are DJing: do you prefer Vinyl or CD? Do you use DJ software? Are you performing live?
Radio Guidance: For now I’m presenting as a DJ . I played vinyls until 2006, when I went to use Ableton Live for djing.

Schallwellenmagie: What can we expect from you in the near future?
Radio Guidance: Certainly more releases. This track „Alphabet Center“ is part of an EP called „Lexico“ that will be released (for free) on brazillian netlabel Motronic very soon.
I´m looking for other interesting labels to release my music too.
