Interview with Electronica Music Genius Melodywhore

Melodywhore is a darkwave electronic music project with post-rock and industrial roots, although he isn’t restrained by any particular genre.   The project began in the early 2000s, but it wasn’t until 2017 that any real efforts were put towards promotion and even then, it seemed he was promoting others more than himself.  In addition to monthly releases, melodywhore currently runs two weekly radio shows in support of the indie community

Melodywhore will take you back to the darkwave Progressive/Gothic Rock of Joy Division, The Cure and BauHouse, add in a splash of Iggy Pop along with Killing Joke. His music is a refreshing take of a chance of self-awareness, of personal revolution, of colorful perception and galvanization of the imagination that startles the slumbering mind and body from their sloth! 

A semi in-depth look into Melodywhore~.

What first got you into music?

I remember listening to music at a young age but it wasn’t until my angsty teen years that music really hit me deeply. I had always had an interest in electronic sounds and listening to early Depeche Mode and OMD really put that interest there for me. I wanted to make cool sounds like this. 

Who inspired you to make music?

I don’t think any one individual inspired me. I’ve admired certain songwriters for their talents. martin gore, alan wilder, Vince Clarke, Maynard James Keenan, Trent Reznor. there are others. 

How would you describe the music that you typically create?

Dark. emotional. visceral. beautiful.  

What is your creative process like?

That has changed quite a bit but the basics always remain the same: I’m sitting in front of a device that allows me to channel a feeling or a melody.  I see music as a series of layered sounds and I like to introduce those layers, take away layers and give you an experience that moves you in some way. 

Who would you most like to collaborate with?

I’d love to collab with Vince Clarke! madonna. any of the dudes from Depeche Mode or OMD.  Maynard. Reznor.  

If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?

Depeche Mode!

What is one message you would give to your fans?

You all are true rockstars and thank you for your killer support! 

What is the most useless talent you have?

I can tape all of your buns together. 

Do you sing in the shower? What songs?

Not usually. if I do it’s usually something I’m working on. 

What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?

Probably doing some other creative outlet like poetry, art or maybe writing for film. 

Where have you performed? What are your favourite and least favourite venues? Do you have any upcoming shows?

My favorite venue was Numbers nightclub in Houston. I also played at Clint Eastwood’s rec center in Carmel, CA. I’ve played in Houston and in northern California. no upcoming shows scheduled. 

How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?

Streaming is the new radio. so with those changes and with social media, it’s a lot easier to connect with fans directly. but this in itself can be a full-time job.  you have to be prepared. 

What is your favorite song to perform?

I haven’t performed anything recently but I think hum would be fun to do. 

Which famous musicians do you admire?

I already listed most of them. Reznor, Keenan, Gore, Wilder, Clarke, McCluskey. 

What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?

Oh no, have they found me again so soon??!

What is the best advice you’ve been given?

Never let anyone steal your dreams. 

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

More support and development for people interested in becoming a musician or in any music support role.  

What’s next for you?

I think I have one more remix album from Darklight and then I’m going to start on a full melodywhore album.  Not to mention a number of collabs still cooking.  

How important is the current climate crises to you and how do you think you could help?

Climate change affects everyone but I don’t think it’s yet at a place where it is catching necessary attention.  Until that happens, all we can do is our individual parts
