VAC Interview – Feb 13th, 2010

Bryan Erickson of Velvet Acid Christ recently interviewed us for his Electric Deth Trip Media blog. This was our first interview in a couple years, and we think it went very well.

[Nikki] – Long before 1999 I started composing my first works. I loved music class as a kid and was a natural at the piano. My mom couldn’t afford lessons, but after much begging I got my first Casio, a tiny Rapmaster 2000 fully equipped with built in vocoder. I spent endless nights in my room recording on a boombox. I’d tune up and down AM stations to find distorted sounds and fuzz, while playing my Casio with the other hand...
