5 questions with Gryphon O'Shea

5 questions with Gryphon O'Shea

A guilty pleasure you can't seem to quit?

A GUILTY pleasure huh? I have lots of those.... A little more than I would like to admit :p Probably throwing parties that completely destroy my house though. I really try to maintain a nice immaculate living space/work place, but I cant seem to kick the habit of having a few friends over who each invite a few friends over who end up totally raging it at my house, having pants-off-dance-offs, and totally making this place uninhabitable as soon as I thought that I had cleaned it up perfectly after the last... "episode."

5 questions with Gryphon O'Shea-2

A song that makes your heart skip a beat?
I have a few of these, for different reasons: 

Nine Inch Nails - 'Just Like You Imagined', because this song sums up everything that I enjoy about the music making process. I always get lost in the way that Trent Reznor produced this song, and I am in awe of everything that was put into its musical creation, while it has the perfect balance of electronic, industrial, and instrumental ingredients.

 
  

Imogen Heap - 'Hide & Seek', because it brings me back to my first year at Burning Man, which was probably the most drastically changing experience of my life. I can feel the wind in my hair, and everything I love about the Playa every time I hear this song. I shared some unforgettable moments with some incredible friends that are summed up by the melody and lyrics of this song.
 

Sloppy Jane - 'Pieces'..... This one hits me where it hurts. I will never be able to think about this song without it hurting every part of my body. It reminds me of a hole that will always be in my heart, and reminds me to stay on the path of my light, and never to stray down the path of the darkness that I know is inside of me. 

If the world were coming to an end and you were allowed one last kiss, who would be lucky enough to land on your lips?

My girlfriend Charlotte Free. And I am already lucky enough to kiss her every day. I am a massive cheeseball, sorry.

Which item of clothing in your closet gets most wear and why?

Honestly, I wear the same pair of jeans almost every single day... I think I only have about 3 pairs of casual clothes. And an array of shirts with different modular synthesizers on them...


What never fails to make you smile?

My music studio!!! I get lost every time I start playing around in it.. I will have friends over and they'll ask me to play something and I will literally get so into it that I cannot hear the people in the room when they are asking me questions, and three hours will have gone by before I realize that people have been trying to drag me away from my keys for the past two hours... It's a little bit out of hand. I sit around and program sounds all day, and when I am not doing that, I'm usually watching youtube demos of different synthesizers and filters... I totally lust after audio gear. 

Thanks Gryphon!
