Bill Cutbill on Animal Collective, Rotate This and Lonely Planet
The Go-Go Radio Magic Show has just made the recent Bill Cutbill special episode available to stream on their website: listen now.
Bill chats about all sort of things including his experience travelling in South America and some of the weird moments on his trip. Here's a little excerpt to wet the appetite...
"The biggest influence on this record is an Animal Collective EP called Meeting of the Waters. They did sound collaging and they also recorded songs whilst they were there.
"I got it from Rotate This in a bargain bin. Once I got it I listened to it every day for like three months probably. It's nice because it's immersive and the songs aren't really songs... that's something I really like about Animal Collective.
"So that was definitely a big bingo moment: 'I want to be in this place where these amazing soundscapes are so that I can just be there and feel it'. I'm always looking for my next travelling experience - when it comes to the work/life balance I feel like that's an important part for me.
"I went (to Brazil) for a month. I had the first week booked but nothing else booked after that, so I did lot's of research in terms of the Lonely Planet guide and looking up Trip Advisor reviews on all the companies in the Amazon. I reached out to the ones that I thought would be most relevant because that was the main reason I was going. The rest of the trip I left completely open, so some of the songs on the album are about places that people recommended when I was in the Amazon, and then I went there afterwards.
"I bought myself a little microphone, a small zoom that I thought would do a good job."
Thanks again to CJLO and The Go-Go Radio Magic Show.
