: Val Emmich lyrics
WHO ARE YOU?
Val Matthew Emmich. Who are you?
I'M YOU. YOU'RE CURRENTLY INTERVIEWING YOURSELF.
Oh. Neat. Go on then.
YOU'VE PUT OUT 5 ALBUMS. WHAT ARE THEY?
The Fifteen Minute Relationship (2001), Slow Down Kid (2003), Slow Down Kid (2004), Sunlight Searchparty (2006) and Songs Volume 1: Woodstock (2007)
WHY DO YOU HAVE ONE LISTED TWICE?
Oh. Because they're basically the same album with a couple different songs, different producers, recorded and mixed at different studios, and released by different labels.
Tell me about it.
YOU'VE SHOT A LOT OF VIDEOS. WHAT'S YOUR TAKE ON VIDEOS & THEIR IMPORTANCE?
I don't think they're important at all but they can be fun. Coming up with a visual representation of a song can be a tricky thing. There is risk of possibly over-simplifying the meaning of a song and perhaps ruining the ambiguity that makes it work for some people. I feel mystery is a very important part of music. But I also love film and the emotion that can be communicated through that medium and so making videos for me is toying around with that aspect...channeling a different type of emotion.
SPEAKING OF FILM, YOU'VE ALSO MADE ONE OF THOSE. CORRECT?
Yes. Well, I didn't make it but I was a part of making it. My 2006 album Sunlight Searchparty came packaged with a DVD containing the film It's Only Your Life: The Making Of Sunlight Searchparty. It was an hour long documentary directed by Matt Schuman showing the recording process and showing us discussing the inspiration behind making the album.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO MAKE A FILM?
Well I've always wanted to make one and I've always enjoyed watching them. I love seeing my favorite bands in the studio even if it is a bit voyeuristic and chips away at that mystery I spoke of earlier. Nevertheles
