Ahead of the release of his ‘Computers of the World’ LP in a few weeks time. We sat down with Frank Colgliano to chat about his life, music and future.
Can you tell us a little about your experience? Where are you from / how did you get into music?
Originally I’m from Massachusetts and I got into music because my parents always played it in the house and I played guitar from a young age, a Hondo acoustic my Mom had.
Who have been your main inspirations (both musical and in “life”)? And how have they affected your sound?
I was very fortunate to have some wonderful teachers in music so they are my only source of inspiration outside of the music itself.
How would you define your sound?
This album is built around many small samples of sounds from cassete/VHS tapes and in general a nostalgia for the technology of the 80s/90s. If that’s the focus, it is rounded out by small pieces of all my various influences and interests.
How has your sound evolved so far?
It has become more strange. Probably because I’m not thinking to hard or trying too hard
What can you tell us about your last release? What inspired you? What do you want to convey?
It’s definitely nostalgic of the pre-2000s era in general. I grew up in the 90s so these sounds mean a lot to me. I’d just say its a tribute to a certain time. The first side is all the top 40 hits and the second side is more ambient.
What modern artists are you enjoying?
I unfortunately don’t really listen to a lot of modern music. I’d rather try to make it.
How are you living the current situation because of COVID? Has your work affected you a lot?
I always try to be optimistic.
What projects are you working on right now?
Music that is not as much nostalgic, I am trying to find different sounds that I’ve never heard before. This album each track started with a sound from the past, my next album each track will start with a sound from the future.
