Thank you so much for recording the mix, I really appreciate it! For the uninitiated out there, introduce yourself, please?
Describe the mix in three words?
Filmic and colourful.
What was the last record you bought? And where is your favourite spot to go buy records?
Christoph De Babalon –
I also just received a copy of Mirrors in Mirrors by Midori Hirano release by another Melbourne label Daisart.
I get a lot of records through friends that own labels or are artists. I don’t really have a favourite spot as I’m not buying vinyl like I used to however I’m quite into
Low Company in London was probably the last shop I bought a physical record from, an IDDB 7″. That place caters well to my tastes and the staff seem to all be from Melbourne so it’s a nice spot to go to when I’m overseas.
What was the last book you read? Does literature influence the music you select/listen to?
Oooh. Look I haven’t finished my last two books. An
Study and thought do lead me to make choices and change direction though – that sounds quite obvious out loud – to explain, I started my first event in my honours year at University, which I do think was a result of me considering how systems could be restructured (I studied media and sociology).
The resultant event, a party called Day Care, was about reconfiguring the typical club format and increasing accessibility to people outside of club land and to parents as it was an “all ages” event.
What’s your earliest memory of the club?
I can’t isolate one as it was a long time ago and Melbourne was a very different place – I do remember being pretty fascinated by it, this sort of parallel secret world, an undercurrent to routinised life. I guess I was seduced by how subversive it was. I think that’s how I like it to function – as a challenge to norms, and so, where I can have any influence – I push for it behave like this.
Does film influence your music? And have any film scores/soundtracks caught your attention recently?
Visuals influence me, as does all
As a DJ I’m always assessing and trying to influence mood and movement – that’s the role as I see it.
I’d like to work more closely with visual arts and film, and a few projects have charged me with that task which I’ve found very exciting.
As a medium, film/movies, I personally use this mostly to escape.
So I tend to separate the two – watching movies and letting go.
Or listening to soundtracks separately.
Or looking at visuals and imagining what impact sound could have on them.
And finally, what’s 2019 got in store for Laila?
I’m really enjoying this podcast project I’ve started – in the next few months there will be some new episodes with people from outside of AUS
I’ve also got some freelance writing assignments to do.
I have some music I’d like to record and finish producing.
I’ve got a few gigs in Melbourne for the next month – a festival called PITCH – in the art section, and, two I can’t announce due to international acts.
I have some sound programming to do too.
And then, I will travel to Europe (again) in about a month. Perhaps for an extended period, or, back and forth. I have some gigs in EU summer so some careful planning is in order.
