Some musical thinkers claim to be able to visualize music as shapes or patterns, and from there
conceptualize the song as an aesthetic object. how do you conceptualize sound, or is it a conscious process at all?
T.J.: MUSIC THEORY HAS PATTERNS
AND SHAPES. BUT FIRST AND FOREMOST WHEN IT IS ALL SAID AND DONE YOU HAVE TO FEEL IT TO BELIEVE IT!!!!
What is the best part so far about being in Catch 22 since the very beginning?
T.J.: MEETING ALOT OF COOL PEOPLE
ALONG THIS RIDE. THE FAITHFUL. HELPING TO RAISE THE METAL FLAG. I REFUSE TO LAY DOWN AND DIE. FOREVER TREAD YOUR OWN PATH.
FUCK TRENDS YOU FAKE FUCKS.LONG LIVE THE METAL SPIRIT IN US!!!!
What future directions do you see opening for people wanting to create
LOUD and HEAVY METAL music? do you think the ideals that make one wish to make such music have changed, or do you see the
impetus as emotional?
T.J.: HEAVY METAL WILL ALWAYS
HAVE AN UNDERGROUND FOLLOWING NO MATTER WHAT. BUT I CAN SEE SOME DOORS OPENING AS IT IS GAINING POPULARITY ONCE AGAIN! WHEN ITS IN THE BLOOD
IT DOESN'T WASH AWAY!
What do you think will be the effect of mp3 files and file sharing in a music industry controlled
by a few titans, but with many smaller labels and distros?
T.J.: IT'S A DOUBLE EDGED
SWORD.BUT IF THEY LIKE YOUR MUSIC THEY WILL BUY IT. SUPPORT YOUR FAV BANDS. BUY THE CDS.AND HELP SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THE NEW ACTS THAT
ARE GOING TO HELP KEEP THE METAL FLAME BLAZING!
What can we expect from Catch 22 in the near future? What goals do you want to reach?
T.J.: CATCH 22 IS CURRENTLY
SHOPPING FOR A RECORD DEAL AND PLAYING OUR ASSES OFF. WE WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO MAKE A LIVING OFF OUR MUSIC. IT TAKES TIME TO GET THERE.BUT
