Mark Tulin: “These sessions are about limitless possibilities” 3:48 pm // Thursday, April 16, 2009Posted by Jill in electric prunes, interview, mark tulin, studio.
In a wonderful new interview with SP.com, Mark Tulin of the Electric Prunes speaks about his connection with the Smashing Pumpkins, his ongoing contributions to their studio work, and what the Prunes are up to these days. The entire interview is enjoyable, almost soothing.
Tulin speaks out about what to expect from the new sessions:
And these sessions are about limitless possibilities. However, if Spring is the period of rebirth I would definitely buy into the “sounds like Spring” concept. As far as being psychedelic –I’m not really sure exactly what that means because, appropriately, psychedelic can mean different things to different people. That said, there are some elements of what we’re doing that would qualify as psychedelic no matter what the definition. Psychedelic music originated from the freedom to experiment in the studio and that’s what is going on with Billy. What’s cool about these sessions is the space that exists for an open exchange of musical ideas. No three chords, verse, chorus and fade out. Have an idea, let’s try it. Something a little outside, give it a shot. The ultimate goal here, I believe, is to make the best music possible. If some of it is psychedelic that’s great, welcome to my world. But no matter what you call it, this is interesting, innovative and arresting music.
