A-ha! Is that Magne F? - Entrevista del Reino Unido

Muy pronto la traducción en español.

A-ha! Is that Magne F?

By John Earls - "Time's been kind to A-ha. Nobody gives a rat's ass about Morten's cheekbones any more."

With all three of A-ha releasing solo albums around the same time, they're all playing individual sets at London Royal Albert Hall on May 24.

"With our last solo albums, it looked like we were in competition," says keyboardist Magne F. "We're properly co-ordinating everything at last."

Magne's album began as songs he wrote for the band.

"Morten wanted to do a solo record," Magne explains. "And I don't like songs sitting around for too long. It's hard to recreate that initial excitement if you come back to them six months later.

"Some musician friends kept coming over to my place, and I slowly realised it was because they liked the songs, not just for my fabulous coffee."

The album, A Dot Of Black In The Blue Of Your Bliss, features Guy Berryman of Coldplay as its bassist.

"From day one, Coldplay have said cool things about A-ha," says Magne, 45.

"I'm closest to Guy, because he's interested in art too. He'll come to Norway to hang out and share ideas on our respective art. We're always on the lookout for doing little projects together, either musically or in art."

Although the album was initially free online, a luxury version was packaged with a painting by Magne.

"The paintings form one big artwork," he explains. "The idea is that music should be free, but if you want a cool object to go with it, pay for that.

"I'm cool that the record isn't going to get as much notice as A-ha. I've had so much success with A-ha, I could hardly claim to be under-represented."

As well as designing an official stamp in Norway in 2001, Magne's art also led him to design the sculpture for the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony when Al Gore won the honour last year.

"I was asked before they knew who'd won," says Magne. "I was glad Al won, as climate change is an easy subject.

"I didn't want the message to be coded in the work. For something so vital, I wanted everyone to get the message."

With A-ha having survived since the mid '80s, Magne can afford to laugh at the critics' early derision of the band.

"A-ha were always cool - you critics were the uncool ones," he chuckles.

"We were super-embarrassed at our status, even if Morten's cheekbones were pretty sexy. It's great that bands like Coldplay were secretly paying attention to the music and have made us fashionable after all these years."

Magne en A-Magasinet

En la edición del 9 de mayo, hicieron un pequeño reportaje a Magne!!!

Nota original AQUÍ




El primero de mayo de 1969, Magne Furuholmen de 6 años, pierde a su padre en un accidente aéreo.

En una abierta entrevista con A-Magasinet, el músico y artista nos cuenta de que siempre pensó que había una fuerte conección entre la muerte de su padre y su propio trabajo.

"Creo que un quiebre emocional como este, puede llegar a ser muy bueno para tu creatividad. Es uno de los más grandes regalos que puedas tener en la vida, de esos que a primera vista aparentan ser desastres. Regalos vestidos de desastres" dice Furuholmen y continúa:

"Sé lo peligroso que es decir este tipo de cosas, pero mi intención en decirlo, es para darle a los jóvenes que han tenido una experiencia similar a la mía, un sentimiento de que, no importa cuán dramática y seria sean las cosas, tal vez hay algo realmente esperando por tí al final, siempre que sepas como llegar a él. El regalo que mi padre me dió, fue la libertad de no tener que vivir en su sombra".

El no es el único artista creativo quien ha sufrido la pérdida de una madre o un padre cuando niño. Ambos padres Madonna, John Lennon, Paul McCartney y Bono, han perdido a uno de ellos a corta edad. El hecho de que todos ellos han llegado a ser individualmente creativos, tal vez es más que una coincidencia.

Nuevo Mensaje de Magnef




Jueves 8 de enero de 2008

how can you miss me if i never go away

lyrics first, then the music
well, it seemed like an, uh.. idea at the time
there will be more info about the upcoming album, don't worry... fret!

in the immortal words of spinal tap, i will be looking for a more 'selective audience' this time. in fact, i have half-decided not to release this as an album at all (and not by popular demand either!). well, at least not 'release' in the traditional sense...more like 'setting free'. we'll see. my goodness, is that the time - a few booktips then off to bedski..
below are my favourite lines from 'dandy in the underworld', by sebastian horsley (although I am pretty sure he has attempted to spell his name starting with a w art some point) not high literature, sure - and probably a book i would not have bought, if judged by the cover (which he clearly states every book should be), but a gift from a discerning reader is a rare enough thing these days (thanks, hon), and an entertaining autobiography from a self-declared wannabe even rarer...

and anyways, post the gushing of saltywater from reading 'the road' by cormac mccarthy, a solid dose of snide commentary, and full on unashamedly british self-irony & deprecation coupled with the our sebastian's strategy of putting himself in the worst possible light (only the smart ones knows this trick) was just the ticket.

now, i re-read every book i read immediately (obsessive, sure), scavenging the pages for morsels of interesting grammatism and linguistic idiosyncracies marked down the first time, but this one begs to be quoted in full, in fact gags for it. in fact it is not literature, it is pages filled with quotes. my absolute favourite being the 'celebrity' quote, of course..how true(sic). so, in order of appearance, and for the purpose of your entertainment:

I simply cannot live within the income my of praise. from the very start I wanted to be the bride at every wedding, the corpse at every funeral and the baby at every christening

an appetite for sadness that no amount of misfortune could satisfy

style is when they run you out of town and you make it look as if you're leading the parade

if you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there

worry is interest paid on trouble before it falls due

a family is a group of individuals united by blood and divided by money

confusion is always the most honest response

the nice thing about being a celebrity is that when you bore people rigid they assume it's their fault

vanity is where the extremes of insecurity and arrogance meet. it is for the hugely self confident who have low self-esteem

ownership had robbed it of all worth

i drank when alone for the same reason as every other lone drinker: to get rid of myself, to send myself away

fantasy is the proper riposte to the miseries of life

so empty of content, so content with his emptiness

my mind was like a darkroom in which negatives were developed

i had given up everything and taken up nothing instead

unhappiness lies in the gap between our talents and our expectations

the opposite of talking for me wasn't listening. it was waiting

i could not live by words alone – despite the fact that often i had to eat them –

if you give up smoking, drinking and drugs, you don't actually live longer, it just seems longer

the best healers are the wounded

i always stay away from natural foods. at my age i need all the preservatives i can get

the old are preserved in the young, waiting, like hatchlings to come out and peck

contentment consists not in great wealth but in few wants


what else...
a.s. byatt; possesion, audrey niffenegger; the time-traveler's wife
more cormac mccarthy, reread all the john fante books...oops, time to zzzznooze

Magne nos desea un feliz 2008!


outside the pale there is colour...

inside the old something new is waiting to burst out

a new year, for the same old us
like the russians say: it will be worse than last year, but surely better than the next

yet hope springs eternal

the nitrous oxide is in place
the baby has revolved into launch position;
soon, soon

time to get to work now
gather round, my friendlies...
