Tether started as a way to experiment with music and genres without needing to put it into any higher concept, a playground so to speak. It has also become a steady part of my DJ routine, as it's a great way to test out new tracks, and surprise people.
Why this name?
"Tether" was chosen since I started the project by doing aggrotech inspired electro-industrial, and so confined myself, or tethered me down to a specific genre, unlike my other band "untied" which was free to roam (though usually in melancholy).
Lately though, Tether has become much more experimental and the name is now more related to the STS-75 space shuttle , nicknamed Tether, which was also the first use of Linux in orbit (I use Linux to create my music).
Do you play live?
I haven't played live with Tether as such, but many of the songs go through an evolution on the dancefloor as I try them out while DJing.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It's changing it fundamentally. The days of the rock or popstar are close to counted as everyone has access to everything now, and have the option to listen to new music before buying it, legally or not, and is more likely to buy an album out of enjoyment instead of out of an artificially introduced commercial "longing" for it.
Whether there's still money in it, time will tell - I hope micropayments will prevail whilst fans will still buy hardcopy products, in one form or the other.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
If they share my vision for how management should be done, and aren't "evil" then sure, it's all about getting my music to those who will enjoy it, and if they can help, no problem.
Your influences?
industrial, noize, ebm, electro, 8-bit, big beat, acid, trance, techno, industrial rock, classical - whatever plays on my speakers.
Equipment used:
I use a laptop loaded with Reaper and a huge amount of freeware synth plugins and self programmed manglers.
