The Soft Moon vs John Foxx & The Maths

The track ‘Evidence’ was born naturally out of the two artists’ mutual appreciation for one another. Speaking with Artrocker magazine last year, Luis Vasquez from The Soft Moon had this to say of John Foxx’s influence on his own music: ‘Foxx’s Metamatic album is what led me to discover the Arp Odyssey, the most crucial instrument in my collection, and the key synthesizer used in creating my unique sound. So, that album is very important to me and what I do.’ With regard to the collaboration, John Foxx said, ‘The Soft Moon are where minimalism maximises into a new universe of possibilities. It’s an absolute joy for us to work with them.’

‘Evidence’ will be released as a one-sided 7 inch single by Captured tracks on 26 June. It also features on the forthcoming Evidence mini-album by John Foxx & The Maths in early September.

Here’s a new interview by Clubbing Spain.

1. How do you feel right now in terms of your artistic career. What’s your moment now?

At the moment it’s great fun. We feel as though we are on a rising tide. But I’ve also lived long enough to look over the horizon.
My father was a boxer. I said I would never do anything like that, but you know, life can be ironic – being a musician can be very much like boxing. It’s always the moment – until you are forgotten. Then you figure out how to survive until the next round.

New Spanish interview

John Foxx And The Maths are playing in Madrid on 26 May – check here for more details: HERE

Here’s a new interview by KSK magazine with John in the run up to the concert.

Or you can read the full English transcript below.

1. – How do you define John Foxx, as an artist?.

Foxx: Oh, I think he’s an outsider with his own agenda – someone in the margins – and determined to stay there. Always a little bemused by what the mainstream does.

2. – In mid-late eighties the first digital synthesizers began to appear. At first we thought it would be the end of the analog era in terms of music making, but nearly thirty years later, there now appears to be a perfect combination of analog and digital, for the creating and composing of music. What do you think about all this, since you have seen and experienced it all as John Foxx over the years?

It has been a fascinating journey, from the beginning of synthesizer music, then through the digital area, when analogue synthesizers were almost forgotten.

Now we are recovering that original analogue sound world through new digital technology. It is rather like rediscovering an Amazon forest after it has been forgotten for decades. ›› Read more
