Hollow Human was a onetime project undertaken by the bassist and guitarist of Pawn and attempted to fuse metallic influences with electronic art. The project was created and completed over a period of 3 weeks in the summer of 2001. The Hollow Human project was an opportunity for the members of Pawn to expand into new moods and methods, and much of the experience gained during this project will reflect in the quality of recording of the next Pawn album. Both 'Sanity in Sedation' and Hollow Human were zero budget and home recorded.
Why this name?
The Hollow Human project is a concept album based on the flow of events in the life of a single being. Born into a world of chaos, driven to the edge of disorder by its insidious tentacles creeping into the pinpoint of hope and faith within him, this album is the tale of his descent into darkness and the englightenment he found there.
Do you play live?
Recently, the bassist and drummer performed live at Civil Junction with their latest project, Bachay Do Hi Achay. The studio versions of this project's work will be online soon here at Soundclick.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The internet is the beginning of a new era in global representation. Hidden behind IP addresses and screen-names, each member of the online community is equal. Someday, if this giant network is not hijacked by the current powerstructures, the internet will allow us to come closer to a truly globalized, unified and egalitarian society. And on a side note, if you have any friends in the RIAA, or just meet a random stranger affiliated with them: Destroy them. Art was always meant to be free, just because society has failed doesnt mean we still can't dream and aim for something better.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
No. The Hollow Human was a one time project, and if we were to join with a major label, it would be to remaster this project. When all three members of the band re-unite, the work will continue under the Pawn name. Until then, its just side-projects like these.
Band History:
Pawn's drummer was forced, due to financial constraints, to sell his drumkit. In order to overcome this, Pawn's bassist and guitarist took to the computer to try and work in some material without a live drummer, and ended up expanding beyond what was initially expected. The Hollow Human project was written, recorded, engineered and burnt over a 3 week period
