Nine Questions with Klaus Morlock

Nine Questions is a new regular feature on the Active Listener, where we ask our favourite artists nine simple questions and get all sorts of answers....

Today.... Klaus Morlock.

What was the first record you bought?
Animals by Pink Floyd.

What was the last record you bought? 
The soundtrack to "The Duke of Burgundy" by Cat's Eyes.

What's one thing about you that very few people know?
I am fascinated by the word "umbrella" and by umbrellas themselves.

If you could record with any one artist who would it be and why?
Steve Jansen. I've always loved his drumming and his general approach to rhythm.

Who should we be listening to right now?

Vinyl, CD or digital?
All three can sound good, but it's vinyl for me.

Tell us about your latest release.
I'm working on a concept album called "The Child Garden", which loosely tells, over the course of about 15 short pieces, the story of a group of adults falling under the malign influence of a shadowy mystic. It's a mixture of pastoral electronics and deep, menacing tape-saturated textures. I'm obsessed with the project.

What's next for you, musically?
The sequel to "The Child Garden" has already been planned. It'll consist of two synth-driven, echo-enveloped, eighteen-minute freak-outs.

What's for dinner?
Cold noodles.
