In talks with – Sun Glitters.

Categorised as Uncategorized

Having recently released his exceptional EP ‘High‘ featuring track remixes from the likes of MMOTHS, Jewelers & SumSun, I caught up with Luxembourg’s Victor Ferreira of Sun Glitters fame, for a chat about sampling, collaborations & other such things.

Where does the process begin for you when creating new pieces?

Everyday when I wake up!

Can you tell us about the music scene in Luxembourg?

Hidden behind all the banks, a historical cliché in Luxembourg, we have a very small music scene, but it’s starting to grow, with micro-scenes popping up in all genres.

We’ve been checking out your Vimeo page recently & saw the live video from Binnacle Festival back in 2011. What aspects of performing live do you get the biggest kick out of?

I enjoy playing my tracks live, I feel that the effects are more powerful and I want this feeling to transmit to a real audience.

How do you go about finding samples to use within your work?

There are a quiet few samples in my songs. The thing is that I record small melodies on Reaktor and turn them into samples. Recently, I’m using Ableton’s beat repeat to create small melody samples mixed with beats, vocals, etc… and pitch them down or up and that creates really great atmospheres. But sometimes they also get found accidentally.

Listening to your recent EP release ‘High’ is a deep experience. Can you tell us a little about the journey for you in creating this?

It was the same process as for all the tracks on ‘Everything could be fine‘ and several yet-to-be-released singles. The only thing is that the sound is more mature and maybe sounds a little bit different just because I tried out some new techniques.

Do you have any dream collaborations that you would love to create one day?

In this kind of process I have no preferences. All collaborations can be useful, you can learn a lot from them. But to collaborate with Kevin Shields would be awesome.

What are you listening to at the moment?

I really like the last Shigeto album, ‘Lineage’, Burial’s last EP and Tycho’s Dive full length…But should I really tell you what I’m listening at the moment? It’s a huge list.

What’s going on in 2012 for Sun Glitters?

Hopefully to sign to the right label, continue working on my new tracks for my forthcoming full-length and continue playing shows all around the globe.
