Denmantau: But life is beautiful and the musician is a musician, because he is a musician.
“We pull the plug of the Matrix and say” HELLO Duuuuu! Fancy a bit of trumpet in the face in the morning? “Denmantau (outdated div. Local heroes title) live for some time in Los Angeles and make music mainly on the road. Meet to meet people who ask us to five of the most important rules of the city:
Good? … Yeah, right? Goes so? Well, man, is also a lot going on with you over there, as we can see. If everything is not easy, that’s probably true. Many Polarian currents, as it seems, but you can do it already. Will we see not too different. If you look to us to America, one would indeed like puke with start in Trump’s face … but we can get it also out. We fit so’n bit here and you over there. Then we should manage jointly, have also only a few more years, then we have the planet anyway out.
And we face once before: We are DENMANTAU from Hamburg and before little less than two years after California emigrated. And because we miss you, we want to tell, what happens to us here. There are many things denmanTAUSEND to report, but to win an insight into our lives, you would have already rumkommen to experience what California has to offer. Gets simply under 555-NOSE. But maybe I’ll tell just once, like a day in our lives look like.
We live currently in San Pedro, which is at the southernmost tip of Los Angeles County, surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and palm trees and rainbows that crawl out of our asses. Well, or something like that – let’s start again from the beginning.
Each city has its own rules and everyone who has entranced in Los Angeles, I once set up a small set of rules.
So you have again two choices at this wonderful democratic country. . Head home and observed rule number 1 or enjoy a well-violent sunset in all its glory on the beach and smoking rule number 3
A great feature of this band is traveling, we like to see new cultures and experience first hand people from other countries. We share the music on the street directly to the people, we tear out of his everyday life. We pull the plug of the Matrix and say “HELLO Duuuuu! Fancy a bit of trumpet in the face in the morning? “Then some prefer us the plug and call the like, armed with pump gun, Taser, Phaser, baton Sergeant and scare us.
As everyone knows, Los Angeles is a stronghold of the music industry, with all due respect her, let’s say, weak points (musicians in the world, provides you ON, I repeat, ONE free drink per nose because one misses his pearl a bit more), but has just also their strengths. To tell a little anecdote, which somewhere to play sounds, if it is not experienced from time to time in everyday life. It applies for example to his concert on Sunset Boulevard bassist of the Stranglers or the Mangager of New Order, of course, beer drinking. There are always possibilities that open up a, just because everyone mixes together here. From large to small. So we have, when we played street music, met the drummer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers Chad Smith and surprised him with his own song “Around The World”.Pressed or Brandon Boyd of Incubus, Robert Trujillo of Metallica Citizen Cope a CD in his hand, with which one must say Roberts large bass bail Hand was by far the largest and most surprisingly, the most tender. The could win prizes in shaking hands.
You meet people at just who work in the entertainment business, and that makes life here in LA incredibly exciting.Whether stuck yes in the restaurant, at a concert or house party, somewhere these people need and you meet here, alongside other people from the area. So as we all. Life in LA is not the easiest, and certainly not in such a competitive industry, and Rules 1 and 2 and 3 can an energy robbing before, but the people are open and friendly and you swim together in the same boat: The artist’s existence to master. They supported each other, as do musicians, and wants to create something beautiful.
Basically there is no recipe for being a musician, because there are so many ways that need arise and arise again just at this time. The Independent Artist now has the opportunity itself to market and publish. But is also simultaneously demanded. What a strange profession that is so important for people. We need the music, it is essential for life since the dawn of time, even before the language. For many it is as important as breathing, the faithful companion, the empty rooms to ballrooms and bus trips to places of refuge turned the thoughts. And yet we have a schizophrenic relationship to the art form music, a natural resource that should be part of the people, and yet we separate from their place of origin, the musician.
We know from our own experience, we use Spotify and Co. and do not always have in mind that the music that we love, comes from the man who makes them. And so the music is in danger of no longer being that for which we love. Therefore, the motto “penniless musician” the anthem of the profession and as a standard part of the company. Baaam DIGGGGGA WAAASS? Did I say that out loud? Life’s just sometimes seriously beautiful. But life is beautiful and the musician is a musician, because he is a musician. But because a rose is just a rose, it still needs to be watered to smell around, so we can enjoy it.
We are surrounded by so many wonderful people feel very connected with our friends and fans in the world and are grateful to be able to do our part. Nothing’s fucking beautiful and fulfilling than this job, we all share the love of music and we want to serve you, so that it can change and flourish this world. Back to the studio
