Interview | Questions & Answers With Vic Kenders

Today I interviewed Vic Kenders, an artist who prefers to keep his identity anonymously. The Italian producer is stepping out to create a unique style. This music project emerged recently in Italy and I had the privilege to be one of the first bloggers to interview the mastermind behind it. With a cover of Placebo’s “Running Up That Hill” he is trying to make a milestone, but more covers and original releases are to come in the future!

1 – How many artists are involved in the Vic Kenders project?

One mainly, but the others switch every time.

2 – What can people expect from your music?

Electronic music made with real instruments and distortion.

3 – What are some artists that excite you today?

Moderat, Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Boys Noize, Moody Good, Porter Robinson and Aphex Twin.

4 – Why did you decide to create your own version of Placebo’s “Running Up That Hill”? What’s new in this cover?

Because I liked the rework of Placebo’s, and when I was planning the first releases I thought “why not?” Well, this one has slightly different chords, it’s shorter and more “in your face” in terms of sound design.

5 – What was the main idea behind its music video?

One day i was in the M5 (the tube line of Milan without any driver) and i started trippin’ hard about a music video with it. So i took my go pro, and i started goin’ in and out for an afternoon ’til the takes were good enough. It was a very DIY type of thing, but who cares. The creepy thing is that when i searched on youtube for other covers i found the Chromatics’s version music video, that has the same concept, except for the use of the car instead of the tube.

6 – Are you willing to release more covers in the future? Can you give us more details?

Yes. The next is “Exit Music (For a Film)” by Radiohead.

7 – Are you planning any live shows in the upcoming months?

I had some request. But i don’t want to play ‘until i have a perfect show with perfect musicians. I want to build a consistent catalogue before thinking of picking some session musicians to play with me.

8 – What’s the best and the worst thing about the music scene in Milan?

The best thing is the amount of big artist you can meet and the great shows you can attend, art is everywhere here, you can feel it. The worst aspect actually is the people that runs the industry game here.

9 – How far do you want to go with this project? What are your goals?

My main goal is to make music for myself not for the others, if people will like, that will be a plus, if not, I don’t really care at all.

10 – What does the word “Post EDM” mean to you? How do you feel about labeling certain “styles” of electronic music?

 It’s just a word, it means moving on a mindset that has ruined electronic music. Let’s make it dead simple, genres help good musicians to express themselves through a set of defined canons (’cause it’s easier to remain in your comfort zone), but the great ones, don’t need genres, they make new canons.
