Lockdown Music Stories: Örs Siklósi AWS Interview

Örs Siklósi AWS interview

“Our democratic society needs its unique and diverse cultural and media landscape in this historical situation, which was unimaginable until recently,” said German culture minister Monika Grütters. “The creative courage of creative people can help to overcome the crisis. We should seize every opportunity to create good things for the future. That is why the following applies: artists are not only indispensable but also vital, especially now”.

These lines, coming from the German government in March 2020, confirm my thoughts about the role of artists, especially now. This is why I was asking Örs Siklósi, singer of AWS a few questions about the current situation. I was curious about how he was doing, what he was thinking, under lockdown?

Örs Siklósi AWS interview

- How can musicians in Budapest now help society? How can bands, with their creative courage, point to a better future?

- An interesting issue is a relationship between the band and its audience. On the one hand, the band draws strength from the people at their concert, and on the other hand, the musician writes his songs to get to someone and make him think. The same is true now, only in a slightly different way: the group keeps the soul in the audience with their songs and live streams, and fans encourage the musician in “remote mode” that they need what he’s doing. It was an awfully good feeling to see that, without party politics, everyone was unanimous in encouraging their fans to take the current situation seriously, to take care of themselves and their environment. There wasn’t a band I didn’t see that from, everyone was fighting in one direction. I have never seen an example of this in my life so far. 🙂

- Do you get any extra inspiration from such a historic situation? Do you feel more motivated now? Does isolation change much in artistic work?

- For me, making music has always been about writing out my problems. As a result of the pandemic, I finally have problems again! Luckily, the music helps me not to drain the tension in my environment. Since we are writing a new record, volunteer quarantine came at a good time in this regard.

- How do you intend to (re)connect with your audience in these circumstances? What new tools and platforms you would think are going to help to achieve this?

- I’ve already given three live gigs on Facebook, in which I made three different shows. It was a great feeling to see the number of audiences grow. Also, we have already organized podcast-like conversations with other musicians in which we speculated on the current situation and possible scenarios. We are planning a lot more like this.

- What you would think the single biggest change is going to be in the world of music in Budapest once this crisis ends?

- For a long time, nothing will be the same for sure. There are a lot of gigs left that everyone wants to make up for - because, without them, every band would be ruined. However, if everyone wants to make up for missed shows at the same time, there will be a disappointment. For a positive outcome to a blow to music life, a huge cohesiveness will be needed, and everyone will have to consider the other’s interests as well. I am confident that we can turn this to our advantage to bring us together even better.

- Is there any “Lockdown” piece of music produced recently that you can share with the readers?

- An entire record is being made just behind the scenes! 🙂

- Is there any way for music lovers to support your work, and how?

- This is a difficult question, and we are thinking about it a lot right now. Everyone’s living conditions have changed, so we don’t feel right to ask anyone for money. However, the complete cessation of music life is a huge problem for any band. If fans order a couple of T-shirts from the band's webshop though, they can help a lot. We haven’t tried community funding sites yet, as we have reserves for now.


AWS

AWS is a five-piece band from the Hungarian capital Budapest, playing modern metal. The core members of AWS started on their musical journey as teenagers in 2006. With fourteen years of intense touring in Hungary and abroad, four LPs, and numerous music videos, they grew to be one of the most sought-after live bands of the Hungarian metal scene. Currently they are working on their new upcoming album, out in autumn 2020.

Lockdown Music Stories: Veronika Harcsa Interview

These lines, coming from the German government in March 2020, confirm my thoughts about the role of artists, especially now.

Jazz singer Veronika Harcsa

Veronika Harcsa

Veronika Harcsa interview

- How can musicians in Budapest now help society? How can bands, with their creative courage, point to a better future?

- 'Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable' - that's a quote by Cesar A. Cruz, the Mexican poet. Nobody is comfortable today, we are all disturbed, and we all have anxiety. Music is a marvelous tool to soothe our minds, therefore musicians have a responsibility in times like these. Even though most artists are currently facing a series of event cancellations, it's uplifting to see the multitude of home recordings and live music streams aiming to cheer up the lockdown crowd. It gives me a strong feeling of solidarity, collaboration, and hope.

- Do you get any extra inspiration from such a historic situation? Do you feel more motivated now? Does isolation change much in artistic work?

- I would love to say that this unique situation inspires me, but so far it hasn't really been the case. On a conscious level I know that this is a great opportunity to dig deep into songwriting, but the daily cancellation of concerts and studio sessions, as well as not knowing the date when things will get back on track is a very demotivating cocktail. Due to the lockdown I cannot meet my colleagues, and jazz is a genre where tight rhythm is fundamental, so online rehearsing is not an option, technology is simply not there yet since there's a slight audio delay on every online meeting platform. But I hate to sound so desperate, I did find things to work on, and I do learn to appreciate the circumstances that once seemed self-evident.

Veronika Harcsa and Balint Gyemant

- How do you intend to (re)connect with your audience in these circumstances? What new tools and platforms you would think are going to help to achieve this?

- I believe that stories are what interest people, and we are sharing a very strong story now, affecting every one of us. I see the lockdown as a chance to connect with my audience through our shared story, and if this creates a stronger community, they will open up more to my music later on. Three weeks ago I took the positive quarantine challenge, meaning that I have to post daily about the positive aspects of living in lockdown. It's often music or art-related, but I also share whatever comes to mind to keep my spirits high, the energy I get from doing sports, the beauties of spring, or eventually the joy of raising my wild sourdough. I share more of my daily life than I normally would, not because I intend to become a celebrity, but because I believe that this connection is what we all need now. Then it will transform itself into a musical connection.

Veronika Harcsa Budapest

Veronika Harcsa

- What you would think the single biggest change is going to be in the world of music in Budapest once this crisis ends?

- There will be less mobility, fewer bands from abroad. It might even do good to the local scene in the long run, for those who survive the crisis.

- Is there any “Lockdown” piece of music produced recently that you can share with the readers?

- My poet friend János Lackfi called me the other day to say that he had re-written Leonard Cohen's classic into a Quarantine-Hallelujah, asking me to sing it. In the recording I sit on our living room floor, as my hobby guitarist husband accompanies me. The song became very popular, reaching several hundred thousand people in a few days: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=238705737284328

- Is there any way for music lovers to support your work, and how?

- If they listen to my songs and subscribe to my channels, that's strong support. They can leave a comment, that's always encouraging. If they come to our concert once things get back to normal, that will be the real connection.

Lockdown Music Stories: VENI

VENI Veronika Szász, István Bata interview

“Our democratic society needs its unique and diverse cultural and media landscape in this historical situation, which was unimaginable until recently,” said German culture minister Monika Grütters. “The creative courage of creative people can help to overcome the crisis. We should seize every opportunity to create good things for the future. That is why the following applies: artists are not only indispensable but also vital, especially now”.

These lines, coming from the German government in March 2020, confirm my thoughts about the role of artists, especially now. This is why I was asking Veronika Szász and István Bata from VENI a few questions about the current situation. I was curious about how they are doing, what they are thinking, under lockdown?

VENI Veronika Szász

VENI

- How can musicians in Budapest now help society? How can bands, with their creative courage, point to a better future?

- Veronika Szász: It is up to the artists to be creative and to create works that invite others to interact. Throughout history, many creative artists have worked all their lives without being appreciated by the audience. Many died poor and lonely, without any fame. Yet they did what they had to do because the real artist always wants to create. This is still the same, even though we have many doubts and fears.

- Do you get any extra inspiration from such a historic situation? Do you guys feel more motivated now? Does isolation change much in artistic work?

- Veronika Szász: I grew up in a poor and humble family, never travelled much, went to a restaurant, did wellness, etc. My everyday life was spent with creation, in which I lived out my unrealistic desires. So for me, this is like what I have practiced for 31 years. What's interesting is that now other people are being forced into my lifestyle too, so maybe they will have a greater hunger for art. Not only do hard times create new and more open recipients, but maybe a lot of people do start now to draw, sing, or play their dusty flute. And this is something that will make the world more beautiful.

- István Bata: Creative work is usually a lonely activity, and this situation now may even be beneficial in that one is less distracted during a creative process. In the life of our band, creative background work has always been time-consuming, and there is more time now. Instead of continuous spinning, calm attention and thoroughness took over. Of course, this should not necessarily accompany a pandemic, so the smartest thing to do now is focusing on what long-forgotten truths teach us.

VENI Veronika Szász

VENI

- How do you intend to (re)connect with your audience in these circumstances? What new tools and platforms you would think are going to help to achieve this?

- Veronika Szász: Fortunately, our audience follows us, listens to what we have to say, and does not shy away from giving us feedback. It might as well happen that there will be new followers too, for which we would be very grateful. But the magic of live contact and live music cannot be replaced in any way. What's more, our music comes to life when performing live, to interpret our songs in an improvisational way in interaction with the audience, when both of us have a distinct strength in pure, virtuoso and suggestive live play.

- István Bata: When thinking of performing arts, it is an important thing to experience performances in the present. Although these can now be done virtually in an alternative way, the digital space is not in any way a substitute for a personal presence. It lacks the power of the occasional nature of a performance. Therefore, I think that in this inward-looking period, everyone should put their sensitivity to the world on a new base, so the concert experience can be re-evaluated, among many other things.

VENI Veronika Szász István Bata

VENI Veronika Szász

VENI

- What you would think the single biggest change is going to be in the world of music in Budapest once this crisis ends?

- István Bata:  If the economy suffers from global emergency stoppages (which, let's face it, there is a good chance for), then there will also be fewer financial resources for art. If this happens, it will affect the livelihoods of musicians and other artists as well, but prosperity has never favoured creativity. So instead of having bread, we might get inspiration as a result of the difficulty of recovering. Creativity is always most needed where a situation needs to be resolved.

- Is there any “Lockdown” piece of music produced recently that you can share with the readers?

- Veronika Szász: We have been in quarantine for a couple of weeks only, and certainly, we have new music since, but it takes longer for us to polish songs before we play them. Neither the current situation can discourage us from producing the quality that people have come to expect from us. However, there is a way we can give, which we think is very important, so we keep making recordings that we can share with our audience.

- Is there any way for music lovers to support your work, and how?

- István Bata: The main income of bands is the honour of concert performance, followed by the sale of recordings, most of which nowadays also take place after the concerts. Because these are now impossible, people can only support performers by buying their music on Spotify and other platforms, watching their videos on Youtube, and giving feedback on social platforms. One important thing we keep trying to keep in mind is that an artist should be represented in the cyberspace by his or her works, not by the private life of an individual who has been captured at home.

VENI Veronika Szász

Veronika Szász, author, singer, fine artist and István Bata multi-instrumentalist musician started working together in spring 2016. The album, under the title Unfold, was released in the winter of 2018, by Gábor Deutsch (Anorganik). The songs premiered in the spring of 2019 at the Knight's Hall of St. Stephen's Basilica in Budapest. This is a conceptually composed, mostly 75-minute long improvisational program of electronic music. The material is a conversation of vocals and instrumental play in an artificial music sphere.

Budapest Art Factory

BUDAPEST ART FACTORY

- How can artists in Budapest now help society? How can artists, with their creative courage, point to a better future?

- Márta: I bet if someone buys a painting from me, I will transfer the full purchase price to the Hannabi team, who are producing masks at the moment.
- Florek: Artists are normal people like anybody else, so, first of all, they should follow general recommendations from experts. Those artists with interesting content can possibly attract people in the online world. And they can regularly feed their followers with good new works or entertainment.

- Do you get any extra inspiration from such a historic situation? Do you guys feel more motivated now? Does isolation change much in artistic work?

- Márta: All the hustle and bustle have stopped, so the studio is quieter. Most of our artists stay now at home. Only three of us go to work, although we have nine studios. The phone does not ring, there is no need to organise anything. Pretty much everything has been postponed. This gives me more time to paint, but I can't tell you how long it takes for me to enjoy it. But I have a great fear of the economic crisis that could seal the coming years, our lives. I look forward to the miracle that will alleviate that fear.
- Florek: My choice of topics is not affected by the current situation. Somehow I spend the same time and energy for my art production as before, and even more. Of course, as an urban Plein air painter my choice of locations will become more and more limited.

Budapest Art Factory

BUDAPEST ART FACTORY

- How do you intend to (re)connect with your audience in these circumstances? What new tools and platforms you would think are going to help to achieve this?

- Márta: We try to be a regular presence on Instagram, Facebook, look back over the past few years, and show life in the studio.
- Florek: Luckily, I have been using social media (Instagram, Facebook, my website) for some time now. So the only task is to keep the level of activity up. We don't need new platforms, hopefully, this crisis will be over soon.

- What you would think the single biggest change is going to be in the art world in Budapest once this crisis ends?

- Márta: Huge crisis, hungry artists, Armageddon. It all depends on how long the current situation is. I'd rather be pessimist now.
- Florek: I do not expect any big change once things have gone back to normal.

Budapest Art Factory

BUDAPEST ART FACTORY

- Is there any “Lockdown” piece of art produced recently that you can share with the readers?

- Márta: Of course, there is new work and readers can see them below in my bio.
- Florek: Yes, I painted some parked trucks near our studios (see below in my bio) because the situation pushed me to explore my immediate surroundings more. Normally, I would not see the beauty in such simple things around me.

- Is there any way for art lovers to support your work, and how?

- Márta: We have two publishing studios in Budapest Art Factory, so we are waiting for two enthusiastic artist colleges to join the Art Factory team. Until the end of this crisis, we are offering half-price studios. It would save our situation. At 600 m2 there is a good distance from everyone, making it a safe place to be.
- Florek: Have you ever dreamt about owning a Ford Mustang? Forget about it. A good art piece on your wall can bring you the same joy, plus it is a good investment.

Márta Kucsora (1979, Szeged) completed her studies at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts and then at Montclair State University in the USA. Her works have been featured in both domestic and international exhibitions. These include Blue: Matter, Mood and Melancholy at the 21 Century Museum in America, Time for Painting at the National Gallery, and Traditional Techniques at the Kunsthalle. Her works are represented by Kálmán Makláry Fine Arts and have been exhibited at renowned art fairs. For example, at Art Paris, Masterpiece London, and BRAFA in Brussels. Márta Kucsora's abstract techniques are related to the works of modern artists of the 20th century, who themselves pushed the boundaries of traditional painting. These include Simon Hantai, Helen Frankenthaler, Judit Reigl, and Francois Fiedler.

Juraj Florek is 100% urban Plein-air painter, his idealism motivates him to reinterpret Plein-air painting and adapt it to the current post-industrial landscape. He is not shy away from the difficult environment, the selection of locations of dysfunctional “Stalker environments” of industrial architecture, or the seemingly unobtrusive corners of the present-day city. He is a painter seeking their unadorned truth. At the same time his painting represents the honest „celebration of everyday life". This explores the author's social environment and his joy of life in the city.
