FAX talks.

FAX reaches full circle with his follow up to Zig Zag. His new album, Circles, will be released in early 2012 by Alexandre Navarro’s SEM Label in France. Macario interviewed FAX about his forthcoming release and his journey in the last ten years as an electronic musician.

Macario: In retrospect, in your ten years as FAX, Zig Zag (2010) and Circles (2012), we find more melody, melancholy and more feeling, like in the title track of your new album. Can we say that this new album closes some cycles and opens new ones inside your music or is it mere inspiration?

FAX: In some aspects, yes, it marks the end of my first ten years of making music as a solo artist. It has been a road of many experiences and learning through music that has been very gratifying. Obviously the inspiration goes hand in hand with the constant musical exploration I have discovered, in my own way and step by step. I think that this is a record full of inspiration, passion and there is a lot of me in there. Yes, my musicality has increased with each record and until this moment with Circles, which is something that I did not force. It has been a natural gateway, even though I always think that I make tracks and not songs.

What does Circles reflect?, as a person and as an artist.

It’s reflects the end and the start of many aspects in my life, it’s a personal celebration and a gift to the people who are close to me. It’s also a very important moment in my carrer as an artist and as an independent musician, being that this is my ninth studio album and to be honest, I can’t stop (laughs), music is everything to me.

There is always very interesting guitar work in your music and in your live presentations you always carry and play this instrument. Why is the the guitar so important to FAX?

It’s the first instrument I learned to play, it’s my first love (laughs). It’s the instrument that ruled my life when I was living with my parents and the first instrument I learned to extract music from by ear, copying riffs from The Cure and The Cocteau Twins. When I started composing as FAX I stupidly ignored it until my third album. It was the piece that was missing to feel that I was doing something of my own and that could set me apart from a sea of laptop producers. And it’s that difference in timbre and sound that has occupied a starring role in the albums I have recorded through the years. The guitar is not the catalyst of my creative process when I sit down to make music but it’s the core of every song, it’s the element that enhances the story I’m telling, it’s what closes the gap.

After being part of a couple of rock bands before FAX, you are now collaborating with Letters From Readers. Have you ever thought of playing as FAX with a live band?

Since Primario, my music has been thought with a band in mind for live presentations. Every track of that album, Yo Recuerdo and Zig Zag have that feeling of a live band, at least inside my head. Unfortunately, it has never come to fruition or I did not find the time to play the songs with the appropriate persons. Letters From Readers helps me look back and remember the work I did with the rock bands I started, working as a team, the rehearsals, etc. I have a very good time doing this and it’s something that I had missed. Working with talented people is something positive, being that I learn more and all of that input ends up somehow in FAX.

Finally, after ten years of producing, gigs in different international festivals, being published in Germany and in the USA and being one of the founders of Static Discos you have become a reference in Mexican electronic music. And now the Sem Label, from France, is going to publish your forthcoming album, Circles. Do you have the same liberty or spirit when creating music? or is there a certain commitment to focus on a certain sound?

Not at all. Ever since Alexandre Navarro, the label director of Sem (friend and fan of everything we have done in Static Discos) and his team (Sasa and Markus) surprisingly approached me in early 2011, the door was open without conditions and with full respect for my style. And I say “surprisingly” because SEM is basically an ambient and sound exploration label, which somehow felt imposing at the beginning. I don’t feel strange to ambient music, but Alexandre told me I could do whatever I wanted and that calmed my nerves, the result of that is Circles. We are finalizing it as we speak, the mastering is done and the artwork is being finished alongside a couple of videos. I am sure it will be a great release. I could not be more grateful and excited.

Macario‘s debut EP for Static Discos is now available as a free download in our website.

FAX shares with us Reflections, one of the tracks of Circles, from his forthcoming album in March of 2012 on the SEM Label.
