Q: Can you tell us a bit about your musical activities since Bohemian Groove.  

After Bohemian Groove I immediately started completing my Atrium Carceri album for CMI, working on my new album with Behind Blue Eyes as well as working on new sound techniques for my dubstep project KRONOX.

  Q: What would you say has been shaping your music most in the build up to From Soil To Space?   Experimentation, growing tired of "psy chill" and striving to create new genres and subgenres.
 
Q: Did you have a particular vision or goal when beginning the new album?  

I wanted to create a glitch-album that was harmonious, an album that was dark but not monotonous, an album that was complex but not cheezy.

  Q: How do you decide what range of styles to record in (do you plan a variety of moods/tempos/styles or do you just record what comes)?   I produce a wide variety of styles, but most don't make the cut for a Krusseldorf album when I am trying to direct the atmospherics. My albums tend to stick together to create a sense of coherence, a world of sorts. The process is quite long when I sit down and narrow down the flow and style of an album. On From Soil to Space I got some help from Aleph Zero as well.
 
   
 
Q:  How do you decide the playing order for the tracks on your albums?
 

I try to move both in a harmonious scale and create a storyline through the album. Sometimes the scale doesn't match, but the tracks story does and so I have to scratch my head trying to solve the problem. This is a long process as well.

  Q: How did you begin From Soil To Space and how did you conclude?  

A few of the tracks were already completed when I did Bohemian Groove, just they didn't fit on that album. I remixed and went back to those tracks when narrowing down the setting and style of From soil to Space, that is when it all started I reckon.

       
Q:  Were there any surprise moments for you as an artist in creating this music?  

Creating the track, Deep Fulgin, I realized that mixing my style from Atrium Carceri with Krusseldorf might not be such a dumb idea after all....

  Q:  Do you have any background details that might explain or provide deeper understanding of some of the music?  
Close your eyes, turn off your lights and listen closely to what is going on.
       
 
     
 
Q:  How do you see the Krusseldorf project developing since its inception?
  Always mutating through different genres and forms, ever changing.   Q:  Do you have any other projects on the go that you would like to plug for Krusseldorf fans?

  I think KronoX might be the closest one, being a dubstep project. Also I am starting up a small dubstep label that will house artists like Noisy Neighbour (Sienis dubstep project), Pitch Glitch (Zekazy dubstep project) and my own KronoX. Expect something well produced and different soon enough.
