- You have introduced a Japanese collage into music. What is the chance to be interested in Japan?
Artem: I think this interest started long time ago, in my childhood, when I watched films with Bruce Lee. East culture and people attract me with their behavior and philosophy. My interest to Japan culture started several years ago. Japan becomes most interest country to me from all east countries. Hieroglyph system seems very beautiful to me and when i saw each hieroglyph I thought that each word has more than simple definition. I start to listen to Japanese ethno music (koto and shakuhachi are great!!), watch Japanese films, read some books and watch painters of Japan (Japanese gravure have very many great painters it's very beautiful and spiritual). Merzbow, KK Null, Masonna, Aube, Naoki shida, Mono, H.Murakami, R.Murakami, M.Simada, T.Kitano, K.Fukasaku, M.Takayanagi, T.Kobayashi, Y.Nara, M.Aida, N.Oshima, A.Kurosawa all this mans impressed me and their creativity influence on me very much.
- Were you influenced by the noise artist in Japan?
Artem: I listen to several Japanese noise artists, but most impressions give me Merzbow. My interest to noise culture start when I listen to album.
- How old were you at the accident of Chernobyl?
Artem: I was 2 years old and don’t remember anything about it.
- What influence did the accident give to your life?
Artem: Kharkov where I was born, was not suffer so much like capital of Ukraine and other places, that’s why I don’t have much influence of this disaster. When I hear some words about this disaster I feel some emptiness inside.
- Did the accident influence your art?
Artem: Not so much. Japanese disaster of 11.03.2011 influenced more strongly on me and I record new album which I dedicated to this disaster. Its very regrettable things. I hope this things will be changes on stability.
- Do you have the message to Japanese Music Fun?
