IAMX are going to Ukraine with an acoustic tour
Writing songs to please critics and listeners alike is not an easy task. It is difficult to compose notes each time in a unique sequence, to give everything to yourself on stage. But it's even harder to make acoustic music.
Creating an album in this format means challenging yourself and getting out of your comfort zone. So many times did IAMX project ideologist Chris Corner. His new acoustic album, Echo Echo, due out in March - is another opportunity to prove he is capable of more.
In support of the album, the band will come to Ukraine to their loyal fans not only in Kiev, but also in Kharkiv, Odessa and Lviv.
The Echo Echo will consist of 11 well-known IAMX songs like Spit It Out and I Come With Knives, reworked for acoustic performance. The idea of making such an album matured in Corner long ago:
"An acoustic album is something I've been wanting to bring to life. All my songs started with a regular guitar or piano. They turned into 'monsters' then. In Echo Echo, I bring them back to their original state," says Corner.
Assisted in the implementation of the idea by David Bottrill, a three-time Grammy winner who worked with Tool, ex-Genesis participant Peter Gabriel and Muse:
"David and I decided to produce the highest quality production for a record with only vocals and guitars. We used dandruff techniques, effects and snippets so that the songs could be repeated at concerts in this format," the musician continues.
At first, Corner wanted to make a mini-album with several songs, but later it became clear that the idea was worth a lot more. And if you thought IAMX in the usual format was a real catharsis, then get ready to hear the same emotions that are hidden behind drums, synthesizers and electric guitars. To hear matter subtle and sensual.
