25. Kaydean pop quiz
I didn’t know too much about Kaydean when this posted and I still don’t.  I do know that he is a producer and has worked in the music industry as such for many, many years.  I also know he’s worked with both Janet and Robyn in the past.  That’s all I need to know.  Ha!

Seriously, though, as an artist, I think he’s exploring interesting territory and not doing what you would expect.  At the time of this pop quiz interview, he was promoting his just released concept double EP, Emerge/Submerge.  You can tell from the songs included with the pop quiz that his brand of ambient electro is richly layered and that, with this particular project, he was exploring the two sides of his musical spectrum and how they met in the middle.

His pop quiz interview, posted on Friday,  June 10, 2011, and takes the Year 3 Number 25 spot.  It was the first pop quiz of June 2011.  The second posted on Friday, June 24, 2011 and featured Elephant Sky.

See the original post here — Kaydean pop quiz interview.  It includes his songs, “Tranquility” and “Daywalker” and 3 Doors Down’s video for “Let Me Be Myself.”

This, That, or the Other
1. Underground OR Mainstream?  🙂 Underground
2. Maintain Artistic Integrity and Vision OR Make a lot of Money? (OR Both)??? You can’t take the money with you when you go, but Integrity will last forever.
3. Studio OR Stage? I love both, but I’m excited by the fear of the stage. 🙂
4. Spirituality OR Hedonism? Why not Spiritual Hedonism?  I believe in that.
5. Make Love, Have Sex, OR %$*!? LOL.  Everyone knows FUCK is my favorite word. 🙂

Fill in the Blank
6. Music is my church.
7. I’m musically inspired by the love of many things.
8. If I could have made any music video it would have been “Let Me Be Myself” by 3 Doors Down.
9. If I was a super hero I’d be Batman…Definitely.
10. Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll should change to Fuck, Fuck, and Fucking Party.

Short Answer
11. I make music because:  It’s the loudest voice I have.
12. I want my fans to:  Learn to listen to music, again.  I mean really learn to listen and love it.  There’s more there than just a beat.
13. Wild Card!  If music is my world then the people are notes and I imprison all of you with bars.  How’s that for random?
14. If I could only share one thing about myself it would be:  Don’t I share enough??
15. I want my musical legacy to be:  To teach people how to love music, again.  We’ve lost that.  And, there is still so much creativity to fall in love with.  I want to be a part of a movement that reintroduces music with substance, not just the flat 2 dimensional substitute that’s gets airplay now – but an actual movement.  I want to be a fan again…a new breed of fanaticism…Not consumers procured by effective marketing, but fans cultivated out of love and admiration for the art and its message.
