Title: Machinae Supremacy Line-up Change!
Post by: robert on November 23, 2006, 06:02:34 pm
! ! ! FAN COURTESY ANNOUNCEMENT ! ! !

We've made a change in the band line-up!

But don't worry, all the members remain  ::). But we've changed things around a little.
Check it out:

Gaz       vocals (only, most of the time)
Gibli       lead guitar (and backing vocals)
Gordon                 rhythm guitar (and backing vocals)
Poe      bass guitar (and backing vocals)
Tomas      drums

As you can see, there's no one playing the keyboards in this line-up. The synths and SIDs will be automated in the background. I've turned over my guitar to Gordon. Now, before you do something crazy, like pretend this is the end of the world, or go out rampaging in the street, raping teenagers and killing policemen, or compare us to depeche mode and say "you guyzzez R nuthin w/o teh k33boredz, plz ffs!!", please do check out my nice little mini-FAQ that covers the questions I was able to predict in advance, mk? thx.

Peace in the IRL  :P
/R



= Q1: Why?

There are 5 reasons:

1. Gordon and I prefer it.
We examined what we could improve with our performance, and one thing I felt was crucial was that I get to focus on vocals only - which means I'd have to turn over guitar-playing to someone else. We've had the idea to incorporate automated synth background (and a click-track for tomas) for a year or two now, and we realized that if we did this now, we could pluck away the keyboards from our stage performance, and let Gordon take over my role as rhythm guitar player (being, as many of you may be unaware of, originally a guitarist). This is what he wants, and it is what I want.

...Oh, and so you don't misunderstand me, the rest of the guys are onboard with this also. :)

2. Better synth output live
One of the main complaints on MaSu live shows have been that the synths are not audible enough. Giving the sound guy a simple, pre-mastered synth output to deal with will make his job easier, as well as ensure the output strength in volume that is needed.

3. More synths, strings and SID live
Yes, it's amazing isn't it? Some songs and parts of songs have more stuff than we can handle in real-time, so live we've compromised and only played some parts in the past. Other parts have a beat-matched rhythm, like some SID arpeggios (Blind Dog Pride, Ninja, etc), requiring Tomas to play after the synths and not the other way around - something above our technical abilities before. This is no longer a problem. Maybe now you can expect to hear some songs live that you never heard before, as well as sounds in songs you've felt were missing (although this could also be because of the problem in the previous point (check above)). ;-) In other words, live shows will be more true to the original material.

4. Better live performance
With our old setup, both me and Gordon were locked in place at our positions on stage, me behind a stationary mic, and Gordon behind the keyboards. This is no longer the case.

5. Logistics
Not something most of you would care about, but for us this makes travelling and gigs easier. We get a nice 20-25kgs cut from the gear we bring and have to stuff into the van when we go to gigs. And they take up a fuck-of-a-lot of space, too.



= Q2: Why now?

We've been wanting to do this, talking about it for quite some time. I remember mentioning this idea, among others, to Poe first time I talked to him about joining the band, but we've stuck with our old ways because they were comfortable and we never had a long time inbetween gigs to change and re-learn. Now it feels like we're at a crossroads where we'll be getting bigger and more serious gigs, and we know that _some_ parts of our performance has never really improved during the years, and so this became the solution. Now or never, right? We decided to take this time to make this transition and take time to adjust. We've had to turn down 2 gigs because of it, but it's going to be worth it.



= Q3: "Click-track", "synths automated in the background"... I don't get with it all means???

Don't worry. This is music-tech theory and practice and really has no importance in the grand scheme of things, from a fan perspective anyway, and if this stuff doesn't make sense to you, than you're unlikely to care about it anyway. Continue to enjoy Machinae Supremacy music and gigs just like before. But some people will have issues with this, like we've seen so many times in the past whenever we do something new, that it felt necessary to write a little FAQ, more for them than anyone else.



= Q4: But but but... Gordon's always played the Keyboards!?! What does this mean to the songwriting process?

The songwriting process doesn't change. We're still making the songs the way we've always made them. With us, it's not about each member fighting to be heard while doing his own thing. We all play several instruments and we make the songs together. We include the parts that fit, and leave out the ones that don't. What you see me or Jonne or Tomas or whoever play live may actually be something written by another member entirely. My point is, who plays what live doesn't matter to the creative process behind the material.



= Q5: So like… This is not just a way for you guys to phase out synths and SID from your musix0rz, slowly but surely like the cr33ping death from above?

No. Nevah.



= Q6: "Automated in the background"??? Sounds like some sort of playback bullshit that's totally fake and turns you all into posers!!?

We've decided that if it's good enough for "In Flames", "Evergray", "Linkin Park", "H.I.M.", "Garbage", "Slipknot", "Rammstein", ”Dream Evil” and "Marilyn Manson", then it's good enough for us.

Some follow-up info...

We've been rehearsing with this new setup for a while now and from the first day we knew we wanted to continue like this. It's working great, and sounds great too.

Tomas has way better monitor-hearing with the click-track and all, and Gordon is learning the songs nicely (he already knows how to play guitar, so that's not a problem).

Trust me, friends... You're gonna lub thiz.

This is legendary.
I love it!

Does sadden me that you're abandoning freshly played synth live, though. But as long as the keys are still HEARD then i couldn't care less.

GORDON, GIVE ME YOUR KEYBOARDS PLZ.

Edit: Wow, the tours page is up? I sense something big coming on. ;)

Well at first I was affraid you guys were ditching the SIDstation (silly me...) but I guess thats for the best. So good luck with that, hearing Gordon play the gitar will be interesting indeed

P.S. Does Linkin Park acctually play ANY of their stuff live? I didn't know they were good to preform without having their songs played prerecorded[/linkin park bashing]

Wow this was the most intersting news I read in over three months! And it sounds as a nice lineup as well. And now you really gotta get down to southern sweden again for a gig :P And I sure hope we get some taste of this new music lineup as well ;) Its been a while since you guys presented any new song.

Post by: cloudstrifex on November 23, 2006, 07:52:35 pm
Aw man I never even got to see you guys live before you took Gordon off the keyboard. :(

I'm kind of partial on this. I thought it was cool that Rob could do vocals and guitar at the same time, and I thought it was cool that the synths were played live. It'l be hard to see it go, but as long as the music is good it doesn't really matter in the long run now does it?

And what will Gordon do when there's only the lead guitar playing? Is he just gonna kinda stand there? Cuz I mean Robert at least was singing. :P

Nice, so there will be improved singing and guitaring as well as moar synthetics.

So, what crazy stuff will you be pulling off when there's a lack of lyrics now that you're not encumbered by a guitar?

Today i also made a change in my own band, a vocalist is leaving and me and the other guitarist are doing the main vocals now.

On stage sometimes i really wish i didn't have that guitar to carry around, so you can just run around and shit.

Is that how you felt, rob ?
Title: Re: Machinae Supremacy Line-up Change!
Post by: robert on November 23, 2006, 10:25:06 pm
To be honest it's gonna take some time getting used to..

I mean having the guitar makes it harder to sing (cause it weighs down on the lungs and takes more energy leaving less for singing) and also I can't really play anything complicated while singing, meanwhile being locked in place cause I need to be where the mic is. But I'm so used to it that I feel kinda naked without it, even though I'm beginning to get the hang of it.... What I'll do now in non-vocal parts I really don't know yet, we don't really rehearse or plan such things (at this stage, anyway), so whatever happens will be what happens on its own.

I'm sure I'll be able to occupy my time on stage, though...  ::)

You'll simply have to pull a Tomas, and actually play naked.

Don't you think it's cool if the band made up some moves, synchronically ?

And running around and firing up the crowd is a good time spender aswell.

As for the guitarrin, yeah, as the clean vocalist in my band, i know its really crap you can't do everything at once.

The childeren of bodom guy pulls it off though ;)

we're looking for a singer/screamer now so hopefully we'll find one soon. Then we're off recording and playing gigs as well ;)



Oh, right about the line up.

I think its a really sober and wise desicion. Freedom and movement is really important on live shows..(to me, that is ;) )  and i think its going to fill in great.

One worry though, can Gordon pull off all the riffs and solos in time ;D

Title: Re: Machinae Supremacy Line-up Change!
Post by: robert on November 23, 2006, 10:37:54 pm
Yeah, a lot of musicians are very skilled at both playing an instrument and singing at the same time.

But unfortunately, I'm not one of them.

I think we won't throw any solos on Gordon for at least a while... He can focus on learning the other guitarwork first, and Jonne takes the leads for now... Gordon has to earn his power-ups ;)

So does this mean almost-near-studio quality vocals from you at live sets then? ;)

Post by: Zombie With Style on November 24, 2006, 02:46:02 am
Heres an idea. Since you don't have any actual person playing the SIDstaion anymore your should set up a C64 on stage durring your live shows and have it "play the SID" or at least, make it seem like it is... come one, you know my idea is genious!  ;D

nah I'm kidding, although it would be very funny to have it as if there was a C64 apart of your band

Title: Re: Machinae Supremacy Line-up Change!
Post by: Drakonis on November 24, 2006, 03:24:48 am
This is actually pretty cool news. I don't know if Gordon has keyboard-live syndrome like I did, but I fealt like an ass during easy-synth parts on stage. Not much more I can do than hold down three keys and jump up and down with a goofy smile on my face.

I think he'll have alot of fun with a guitar. And the fact you put up with guitar/vocals this long amazes me. My advice to you is, during non-vocal parts, jump into the crowd and mosh with people. That's always a real crowd pleaser! And you'll get a mosh going, hehe.

I have two questions:
What does this change in the studio during the recording process?
And what was the studio recording process before? I had always assumed y'all did your normal guitar tracks individually (meaning you recorded your parts and he recorded his). If this was the case, will you still continue to do guitar tracks on the recording? And I assume Gordon will continue to do all the wonderful keyboard stuff in the studio.

In any case, sounds like y'all are excited. So I'm excited. :)

The answer to your first question is: Basically nothing. I mean Gordon has not yet ever laid down a guitar track on any of our songs, so maybe he'll do that, but there'll be no change in the keyboard and SID work, trust me. :) I may still do some of the guitars, I know I'll definitely COMPOSE new guitar riffs and such.

In the studio, our individual roles aren't quite as pre-determined as they are on stage.

Yikes. You scared me with the title there! Don't ever say Line-Up Change without immediately saying none of the members are changing, ever again. I panicked enough when we found out that Kahl was leaving.

As for the news. I don't care how you do it. If you think it'll be better for you, then that's fantastic and I'll continue to eagerly await a chance to see you at a gig :) I know that other synth bands that I'm into have the synth as tracks rather than on stage and I've loved them live so I'm sure it will be great for your performance.

Well, thx for the FAQ, if it wasn't for that I would have been crying myself to sleep now. =P Anyway, this is gonna be really cool! And don't worry about what to do at the "guitar-parts", a member on vocals only can give the crowd SO MUCH energy, and it's gonna OWN!

And by the way, maybe it's time to go back down to somewhere around Jönköping, as you promised.   ::) We really wan't to see this new line-up in action. (I know that you can't do anything about where you play, just wanted to say it. =P)

And at last, I REALLY hope that the "Nintendo DS"-thing is going to happen, that would be awesome! =D

When I saw the topic title, I literally fell backwards out of my chair and smashed my head. After laying down for a couple of minutes, crying to myself thinking that one of the members had left, I built up the courage to actually click the topic. DON"T SCARE ME LIKE THAT!

See, now normal people just had a heartsinking feeling and clicked the link. :P

I was thinking the same thing. Although they've only ever played instrumentals like twice I think, and that was a long time ago. But instrumentals would be really nice. :)

I'm glad you're at least letting us know before hand :).
It's actually always bothered me a bit when I see a band... where theres obviously some sort of keyboard sounds being played... but no keyboard player live, this is mainly in concert dvds I've seen and such, but this is because it mainly bothers me that they never outright say that those sounds were prerecorded. I'd be fine with it if they actually came out and said it (which you just did).

I have to say it seems like it's gonna look kinda weird, with so much keyboard stuff in the music, and not having anyone actually playing it live, but I doubt too many more people aside from me would really actually realize that (or care) so I guess it wouldn't really be reasonable to explain the situation at every show would it.

I imagine Robert will have more stage presence than James LaBrie from Dream Theater, and for instrumentals instead of walking offstage (like labrie tends to do) theres always assorted hand percussion, or playing a third guitar or other stringed instrument, or acting something out very dramatically  ;D

For a second there though I was like "Wait!- This lineup doesn't say 'robert' in it anywhere!!!"

It was a long time since we did an instrumental live, but if we do I'm sure we'll find some way to occupy my time...

Remember to keep spreading the word about Machinae Supremacy, even though we have a label it's still very valuable. The more people who know and dig, the bigger the chance (and the sooner it'll happen) we can come overseas to play.

We had a shot at a European tour in January, together with a bigger band, but Spinefarm dropped the discussion because it was too costly too soon. The album still hasn't been released in most countries, so the big touring will have to wait for a while... But at least they have us in mind when opportunities like that appear, and that feels good to know.

Dont you worry dude, I'm always spreading the word. I've been busy, I've visited 3 Virgin stores and 2 HMV stores so far and introduced some of the staff to a few songs on my iPod. :)

They approve, and will try and get RRE in stock whenever you guys get a UK distrib deal.

Honestly, I think word of mouth from fans is more important than having the label.  The label gets you connections and sponsoring, the word of mouth gets you sales - people buy what they get excited about, which is usually something introduced to them by friends, or something they think everyone else is listening to.  Sales, in turn, please the label who act as your agents.  Of course, this is all academic, and I'm neither a label nor in a band, so my opinion's worth is somewhat limited :)

At any rate, Machinae is pretty much my favorite band - and as such I trust that they'll make good decisions about how they operate.  Good luck with the new roles, I'm looking forward to hearing a new Gordon sound and a more dynamic Robert-voice!

Your music has gotten me through some rough times and it's absolutely a pleasure to see it moving up in the professional world.

Sounds cool, but I'm glad I've at least seen you live to times with Gordon at the keys.
As for what Gordon is gonna do when not playing on stage, the answer is simple: a super-funky moonwalk that is entirely out of sync with the music. That would be so awesome I'd probably pop an eye.
About the proposition of pyrotechnics, personally, I don't feel it'd fit the band. I'd rather see a lot of tesla coils and arches of electricity than fire.

Hmm? I made some nice lightning arches in physics class a couple years ago. Not very hard (if I only could remember how it was supposed to be done). Having the stage covered in darkness just to suddenly be lit up by two lightning arches would be a blast.

My dad actually builds Tesla coils as a hobby.  They're tricky at first but well within possibility for a sufficiently dedicated band.

They would, however, blow out all the amps nearby if they're close enough, if the amount of noise they created wasn't already a problem.  The one my dad built has shot four foot sparks before when it arced over to the power lines.  That was cool :)

You're thinking of a Jacob's ladder.  Similar principle, but arcs between two poles, whereas the Tesla coil arcs between the device itself and the air around it.

Either way they'd make for some fun stage visuals if there were a good way to implement them.

Almost had a heartattack from the first lines when I though you would stop using a SID. I can remember from the Jönköping gig when Gordons was reprogramming the keyboard while playing and Gaz was looking kinda worried, and just as he finshed reprogramming it he started playing it just in time for the new sound to be used. Gaz looked releaved.

Another dedicated guitarist can't be such a bad thing.

My question I'm sure wasn't asked, Robert. Is Gordon using 'your' guitar? Or did you make him buy/use his own?  :P
I was also going to ask about the instrumentals, but I can see someone already hit that one.
This reminds me of the band Dream Theater. The lead singer usually takes a break off stage during instrumentals to drink water or piss, or he'll play with a tambourine lol. Anyway, this sounds like something you guys are happy about and I'm sure it'll work out just fine. :)

Embarrasing to admit, but the gig at Inferno Bar in Tampere 30.12.2006 was the first MaSu gig I've ever seen. And the only one so far. I was watching it with my girlfriend and at first I didn't even notice the line-up change. I was kinda wasted after drinking a few beers too much. About in the middle of the set I thought "Where fuck did Robert lose his guitar...? Hey! Gordon knicked it! WTF?!" But the gig was great, the new line-up worked very well. The next morning my girlfriend told me that I sang along through the whole gig. Straight in to her ear!  :D And she also told that it sounded fuckin' terrible. Well.. Everyone's gotta get a permanent trauma at some point in their life...  ;D

I think it's cool that the band is trying new things and has been able to find a set-up which works best for them. Seeing as how I live in America, I don't foresee ever getting to go to a live show, so in reality I guess you could say the lineup change doesn't affect me much. However, as somebody who is very eagerly awaiting the music video, I have to say I'm a little sad we won't get to see Gordon working the SID in action (with SID being such a huge part of MaSu, it seems like something that should be a star of the video, just like a physical member in the band).

It is do to the influx of new people who want the opinions heard as well. Which is fine with me.

Hmm, I watched the youtube vids of that gig, I must say we need to get a real video sometime, lol.
