EIC's 10Q's w/ Tangled Memories

"..a paradisal consolidation of Romantic-Gothc/Moody Witch House with ghostly-hazy Trip Hop, and Dark-Ambient Electronic effervescents.."

Tangled Memories
Tempting Trip Haunt

Tangled Memories Bio:
“Tangled Memories” composes Dark Ambient, Electronic, Trip/Glitch Hop under the concept of “relationship music” distancing himself from society and people he creates a dream like state of mind in a desperate attempt to reach out to his listeners and describe an illusion of being in a relationship with someone and never being able to be close enough to said person, along with everyday struggles in ourselves and our own lives.

Hello, how are you?
I am lost in a conscious stream of personal doubt and growth.

What are you currently listening to?
currently a playlist of the discography of Bibio and Boards Of Canada..

When did this project come about and whom were your biggest influences for said project?
This project ultimately has been a work in progress for over two years now, it wasn't until early November when I decided to break out of my solitude and release some of it. My biggest influence for my music is some of the personal experiences I've had in my own life along with the genres of music I was most drawn to for influence musically. Such as, Boards Of Canada, Bibio, The Field, Burial, Blonde Redhead, Mew, Belong, Atlas Sound, Tim Hecker, Gold Panda, and Baths. It wasn't until I showed one of my acquaintances what I had been working on and was lead on to find out about current popular artists such as Xxyyxx and Holy Other. Looking up a bio about Holy Other I was completely numb as my heard dropped in my chest to discover he as well was writing and producing albums under the concept of what he calls "relationship music" although not all of my songs are derived from the dark side of relationships that i've experienced I thought it was quite remarkable that someone following a similar path as mine, would gain so much positivity toward their music.

Care to tell us a little bit about your latest release 'Untwist My Hands'?
I feel the album speaks for itself really. It's a constant contradiction of oneself trying to control everything in a surrounding environment. Along with maintaining sanity and inner peace through self destruction. The concept for "Untwist My Hands" is a complicated affair. Trying to blame someone else for things that are out of your control but when it really comes down to it, you're the one twisting your hands behind your back.

Any plans to tour for said release?
Plans are an unstable for me. I have amazing ideas, but there is only so much you can do with limited resources. I would like to try to reach more of a fan base in the mid-Michigan area before I attempt to start playing live shows again. I received Jake Rosenthal (How To Dress Well's booking agent) "POPGUNBOOKING" upon meeting him at a festival last year, so I'm planning to get into contact with him and see what he can do for booking a show for me in Chicago, or New York.

If you could choose any artist(s) to remix your work, whom would you choose and why?
I wonder what "The Field" would have to offer when it comes to remixing my music. I've always loved the progression of his tracks.

Got any other projects we should know about?
My first dive into the Ambient/Electronic genre was with my previous project "Prince Ashitaka" before I decided to include vocal samples from various places including my own. I played a lot of shows in the mid-michigan area before I stepped back and realized I had once again changed my direction. I'm a fickle musician, so far this is the longest standing project I have worked on before ultimately changing into something different. I hope to continue this project for a very long time. The two albums I released under Prince Ashitaka are available for free download on bandcamp as well.

What movie would work best on mute while listening to you music?
"Candy" (2006) a lot of my listeners would inquire "Requiem For A Dream" as well. But I think almost anything creepy would work. As far as the strong hold on "drug" related movies when it comes to synching my music is the overall concept of the emotion I put into my music. I've always thought true love to be as powerful as a drug, so it seemed to fit.

You can only keep/listen to ONE album for the rest of your life ..which album would it be?
'23' by Blonde Redhead

Are you living your dream?
Honestly, living my dream would be more appropriate if I were traveling and able to connect with established listeners. I have captivating ideas when it comes to connecting with an audience on a visual/audio level but I must keep continuing to grow and work hard for the things I desire with my music career. I've already decided from the begging that my main goal is to connect with people and if my music can help someone get through a complication in their life, that's all I'm really asking for.

Thanx Garett!

Tangled Memories just premiered his latest LP 'Untiwst My Hands' right HERE. on I suggest you take a moment to basque in it's glory;]
