WM: This is a tough question, but I think that the more a relationship is built between the band and the audience the better. It’s not actually about the size of the place as it is about the equipment available like live video, for example in big theaters, as well as seating, an audience sitting in half a circle shape is always better than lines.
WM: By the window, as it is the source of light and outside color, and reminds me of how being outside feels like.
EC: My favorite spot would be my balcony. It faces the inner garden, and most of the time it’s so quiet you can only hear some far away city rustle. Besides that, the balcony was the first place Wassim and I jammed together.
EC: Until now it has been my room, always, no matter where I was living.
EC: Normally we take it straight away to the audience.
WM: Music is one of the rare human communication skills that doesn’t need a translator. It’s possible to play music with people and for people no matter where they come from, it reaches everyone in a unique way. Music lives over the generations, it is a timeless borderless activity that links people even if they never had the chance to meet.
EC: I can’t think of a higher form of art, exactly because of the reasons Wassim mentioned. The only thing I can add is a quote from Friedrich Nietzsche that I deeply believe in: “Without music, life would be a mistake.”
