Calmando Qual worldwide support interview 2014

 [Japanese version below]

Calmando Qual worldwide support interview 2014
Made possible by TOO WILD/Starwave Records worldwide fans

Calmando Qual, thank you very much for this interview

01: Please introduce Till-san to us. We know almost nothing about him.
Hibiki:
He is a good guy and he understands the music of Calmando Qual. That makes him a very good support member.
Tak: I already knew him before he joined Calmando Qual, he is my old friend and I like him much as bassist. His main band is “LAB. THE BASEMENT”.
Maya: He is someone who supports various bands, and his thoughts are nice. He did study the band performance and management. However, it’s said by GIAN a character from Doraemon!!!

02: What has changed since Kenka-san left the band?
Hibiki:
Our sound direction didn’t really change much, it’s not something which is either good or bad. We simply continue to make good work.
Tak: If you look at our music direction, it formed into a more pursue keenly dark rock. That energy shape became bigger when Till-san joined us.
Maya:  There are many merits (positive) with same members for a long period, but I think we have a tension in the good sense getting Till-san as a member. But, I’m up against a difficulty because everyone’s interest focus on me.”Yeow”! (laugh)

03: What means visual kei to you. Or don’t you call yourself visual kei?
Hibiki:
It’s either fine. It’s up to the listener to judge about it. For myself I only keep to express Calmando Qual.
Tak: Well, it’s not a genre of music. Visual Kei was born in Japan, at that time the implications was different, also we don’t categorize ourselves.
Maya: I never thought about it. What is Calmando Qual? Maybe Nekura-kei?!

04.Not long ago you released the PV DVD “Vision in the darkness”. But, Why is the Anti Flag PV not included on the Vision in the Darkness DVD?
Hibiki:
Because it’s not a PV, so it’s not because that it could be a potentially country misleading. *
Tak: The remove was the intention of… oh, it’s was the convenience of the editing. (laugh)
Maya: It also was original a secret track also because it was a live PV.

NOTE*Anti-Flag, video remembers you of (WII, NAZI”) it’s very look alike. 

05: Why did you decide to release a best album?
Hibiki:
Because we hadn’t one yet (laugh)
Tak: because of the big member change.* Also because I and Hibiki are together for a milestone, 13 years already.
Maya:  Just lots of reasons.

NOTE *The leaving of SIO, Kiri, TASC and Kenka, also the time break of MAYA.

06: How did you decide the tracklist of the best album?
Hibiki:
I have choose the songs which introduce Calmando Qual more clearly.
Tak: It was selected by member and staff discussion.
Maya: By the guidance of God…

07: Is there something we need to know about the best album?
Hibiki:
If you listen to our best album it brings you back in time. I will be glad if you will buy it. The best album will introduce you deeply to Calmando Qual in the way of reverse.
Tak: It’s not a best album at all. Calmando Qual best isn’t only those 26 songs, [FREAKS] can’t be completed without coming to our concert.
Maya: It gives a feeling of a history album. In fact, Paradox and Yugami are remixed recordings. If you listen to these songs you will hear the chance of the band, which is very interesting.

08: Calmando Qual has been around for 13 years now. Congratulations! Looking back, is there anything you would do differently? Are your proud of what you’ve accomplished so far?
Hibiki:
To have made continue music without quitting, to have continued without leaving.
Tak: All the works which has been created with all members for such long time already, the oversea tours, the support of everyone.
Maya: Because of the support of all FREAKS and everyone It’s a pride that I’m able to continue, to create and play music for this band. Thank you very much

09: What’s your favorite Calmando Qual song?
Hibiki:
CRY
Tak: I really like a lot of songs, but it’s fun to play “Nukegara” and “monochrome”.
Maya: when you talk about playing songs, in the past I liked the fast 8 beat songs but recently it feels good to play a 16 beat song.

10: Are there any songs which you would like to re-record? if yes, why that song?
Hibiki:
I don’t have any! I want to create new songs.
Tak: I really would like to recreate Killer Fiction with the current line-up.
Maya: NegaxNegaxNega, Nukegara…

11: what is the process for making new songs?
Hibiki:
To gain inspiration to create something which is unique, not similar to others and which doesn’t lose his feeling.
Tak: To have the inspiration and Jam sessions
Maya: To create a humming melody which came inside your mind and to introduce that to the band.

12: Tak-san, your blue comet guitar.

Tak: The buddy stay with for life.
Maya: I’ve heard he made his blue comet guitar from a machined cut wood in the nearby park… just joking(laugh)

13: What can we expect in the near future?
Hibiki:
Please expect an expression of the darkness that continues changing.
Tak: I want to release a new album in 2015.
Maya: I think it’s our new release. I wanna disgorge the pre-existing my inner thoughts acquired through my life.

14: Please say something to your reader.
Hibiki:
Please love us (laugh)
Tak: In 2015 I want to use the power which has been acquired this year to create an evolved creation. Yoroshiku!
Maya: Always thank you very much for your support. I really hope that you (can) enjoy the music of Calmando Qual! Please keep supporting us. iyaao!  イヤァオ!

 


Japanese version of the interview:

日本語版
Calmando Qual皆さん、このインタビューを有難う御座いま

01: 私たちにティルさんを紹介してください。我々は彼について何も知りません。
Hibiki:
とてもいい奴で音楽的な部分もCalmando Qualを分かってくれていて良いサポートをしてくれています。
Tak:俺は彼とはCalmando Qual結成前からの付き合いで、凄く古い友人で好きなベーシストでした。今はLAB. THE BASEMENTというバンドをメインに活動しています。
MAYA:いろいろなバンドでサポートしていて 自分の考えをしっかり持っている人ですね。演奏面、バンドの運営面でも勉強させてもらっています。でも ドラえもんのキャラクターでいうとジャイアン!!

02: Kenkaさんがバンドを去ってから何が変わったのですか?
Hibiki:
音や方向性はそれほど変わりませんが、どちらが良いとか悪いというものは無いですね。我々は良い作品を作り続けるだけです。
Tak:音楽的なところで言えば、より鋭くダークロックを追求する形になりましたね。その姿勢はティルの参加に寄る所も大きいです。
MAYA:長いこと同じメンバーでやってきてよい点はいっぱいありましたが ティルの参加でバンド内によい緊張感が生まれたと思います。しかし、いじられる対象が俺に集中して困っています。ぎゃーっ!笑

03: あなたからすると、V系は何を意味しますか。それとも、あなたはV系と呼びませんか?
Hibiki:
特にどちらでも良いです。それは評論家やオーディエンスが判断すれば良いかな 自分達はCalmando Qualを表現し続けるだけです。
Tak: まぁ、音楽のジャンルでは無いですよね。日本でビジュアル系というものが生まれた頃とはまるで意味合いも違うと思うし自分達をカテゴライズするつもりはありません。
MAYA: あまり考えたことはないなあ。クヴァールはなんだ?ネクラ系かな!?

04.少し前までは、あなたは、PVのDVD「暗闇の中でビジョン」をリリース。 でも、なぜ「Anti Flag 」PVが「Vision in the Darkness 」DVDに含まれていませんか?
Hibiki:
それは単純に撮影をしていないのと、国によって誤解を招く事になりかねないからです。
Tak: 意図して抜いたというよりは……まぁ、編集上の都合でもあります(笑)
MAYA: もともとシークレットトラック扱いで収録されていたのとライブ映像のPVなので。

05: どうして、ベストアルバムをリリースすることを決定したのですか?
Hibiki:
出してないから 笑
Tak: 大きなメンバーチェンジもあり、自分がヒビキと出会って13年目という活動の節目として出すことになりました。
MAYA: いろいろあるんです。

06: どのようにしてベストアルバムのトラックリストを決めたのですか?
Hibiki:
Calmando Qualをより分かりやすく伝えられる曲を選びました。
Tak: メンバー、スタッフでディスカッションして選曲しました。
MAYA: 神のお導きで…

07: 私たちはベストアルバムについて知っておくべきことはありますか?
Hibiki:
ベストアルバムを聴いて気に入った時代の作品を購入してもらえたら嬉しいです。
逆にベストアルバムからCalmando Qualを深く知ってもらいたいね。
Tak: 決してベストアルバムではありません。
Calmando Qualのベストはこの26曲だけでは無いし、ライブに参加せずして「Freaks」が完成する事はありません。
MAYA: ヒストリーアルバムという感じですね。実はPARADOXと歪はミックスしなおして収録してあります。こうして並べて聞いてみるとバンドの変化がわかって面白い。

08: Calmando Qualはこれで13年になりました。おめでとう御座います!振り返ると、変わったことは何かありますか? これまでで、あなたの達成した誇りに思っていることはなにですか。
Hibiki:
音楽を作り続ける事を止めず、残し続けてきた事です。
Tak:ここまで長く同じ志でメンバーと共に作り上げた全ての作品、海外ツアー、そして応援してくれている皆様です。
MAYA:フリークスの皆様にずっと応援していただけて 音楽を続けてこれたことが誇りですね。 ありがとうございます。

09: お気に入りのCQ曲は何ですか?
Hibiki:
クライ。
Tak: 沢山ありますが演奏していて楽しいのは「抜け殻」「モノクローム」とか。
MAYA: 曲というか 演奏していて 以前は早い8ビートが好きでしたが 最近は16ビートものが気持ちよいですね。

10: 再録音をしたいと思う曲はありますか? もしある場合、それはどの曲ですか?
Hibiki: 特に無いかな!新しいものを作りたいです。
Tak:「Killer Fiction」を今のメンバーで再構築してみたい。
MAYA: ネガ、抜け殻、とか。

11: 新しい曲を作るためのプロセスは何ですか?
Hibiki:
色を無くさず、誰かに似ず、唯一無二を作り出す事。
Tak:インスピレーションとジャムセッション
MAYA:思いついたら鼻歌録音からのデモ打ち込み。そしてバンドにもっていきアレンジ。

12: Takさん、あなたの青い彗星ギターについて。
Tak:
一生を共にする相棒です。
MAYA:近所の公園の木を削りだして作ったとか 作らなかったとか…うそ笑

13: 我々は近い将来に何を期待できますか?
Hibiki:
変わり続ける闇の表現を期待して下さい。
Tak:2015年にはまたニューアルバムを出したい。
MAYA:新作ですかね。日々生きてきて吸収してきたもの 以前から心の奥にあるものを ガンガン吐き出したいと思います。

14: 読者に何か一言お願いします。
Hibiki:
愛を下さい 笑
Tak:2015年は今年に身につけた力をバンドとして更に進化させたものを創造していきたいと思います。宜しく!!
MAYA:いつも応援ありがとうございます。クヴァールの音楽で楽しんでいただけることを祈っています。これからも応援よろしくお願い致します。イヤァオ!

Calmando Qual Cure Magazine vol.12 interview English Translation.

NOTE: This wasn’t yet in translation check, Dee Lee is to busy at the moment with writing new 2Bullet songs! So corrections are welcome! Questions are welcome too! (ps. I also wonder when he gonna send me Cure vol. 8 & 20… lol busy busy busy!)

 

  • Calmando Qual Cure Magazine vol.12 2004 interview English Translation.

They fascinate you by watching them.
by giving a overwhelming view of the world.
Calmando Qual which plays with a melody nostalgic feeling with an extreme live performance.
Their new drummer Maya joined a half year ago.
The release of their 2nd max-single “MORAL POLLUTION” is definite!
And they will tour this summer through the whole country!

 

  • CURE: Do you like summer?
    Tak: I hate it. Sunburn is my enemy! If I go outside I need a sunscreen for protection.

 

  • CURE: So, how do you always spent your time in this season?
    Tak:
    When I was little, I did go to the swimming pool against my will. I do like the sea, but I don’t like go to the swimming pool…
    TASC: I don’t like it too, I really hate the smell of the chlorine! It burns inside your nose!
    Kenka: My memory is that I ran around the schoolyard while skipping swimming class. (wry smile)
    Tak: Same for me. I did hide my swimsuit on a place where my mother couldn’t find it. And in the student years I simply said, I forgot my swimsuit. I also was a truant.
    KENKA: And now we are adults, and it’s possible to drink with our friends all the time. Drinking in this season is tasteful. Beer is the best!

 

  • CURE Do you all go drink together?
    TASC: We normally split up into people who go drinking and who won’t. But sometimes we go drinking all together. I’m not such heavy drinker.  I always go drinking with Hibiki and Kenka, its fun but I also envy them.
    TAK: When I watch them, it really looks like they drink a lot. (laugh)*¹
    TASC: I’m drunk in a jiffy.
    Hibiki: I’m weak against sunlight in the summer. So I’m going out mostly at night. At home I spend my time to listen to music. I buy music when a jacket looks cool, or if someone recommended me a CD. But I don’t listen to “pop*²” music
    MAYA: When we tour around I always take a CD with me with various music. Hibiki always skips the POP songs. Same as the “interodon”*³ show! That’s how it is(laugh)
    Hibiki: It’s not that I don’t listen to J-POP because I’m an adult. I don’t like it since the elementary school.
  1. Tak doesn’t drink any alcohol.
  2. Hibiki doesn’t like the top 100 music. So no popular music at all.
  3. Interodon is an old TV music intro quiz show.

 

  • CURE:     Then what kind of music do you like?
    Hibiki:     I’m affected by artist such like the SEX PISTOLS.
    Tak:         I grew up with pop songs, so to listen music with him is learning about different kind of music.

 

  • CURE:     Speaking about summer, it’s ghost experience time! Did you ever had a scary experience?
    Hibiki:     Isn’t it Tasc who has has the strongest sense to feel it?
    TASC:     There is strong sense of my parents. They are messing in my room with such as putting light on or making a wrapping sound. It really can be scary if you are not aware of it. (laugh)
    Hibiki:     Recently there is a heavy feeling on my shoulder…

 

  • CURE So it’s like that (laugh)
    Hibiki: isn’t?
    Tak: Such kind of things never happened to me. Even the haunted houses in amusement parks are alright.

 

  • CURE: Do you believe in ghosts?
    Tak: I don’t believe in UFO’s or ghosts.
    Kenka: I love UFO’s so I believe in it.  I had a psychic experience when I was paralyzed during sleeping.
    Tak: Maybe that was just a fatigue.
    ALL: (laugh)
    Kenka: I like the rare animal exploit program which is aired on the TV. It’s impossible to find the animal but they keep desperately searching. Always at the end [The animal isn’t found, but we won’t give up searching] it was the narration of the end. I always thought, just give up! But I continued to watch the show. (laugh)
    Maya: For me it’s a foresight dream to feel spirits.
    Kenka: Somehow it turned into a cult story.  
    Hibiki: Didn’t I saw in my dream that we would play at Tokyo dome?
    TASC: That would be a good thing.
    ALL: LAUGH
    MAYA: It’s not really something, but this is something which I saw when I woke up suddenly. I love to watch F-1.  so for example the accidental death of Ayrton Senna.I was a sleep peacefully but I woke up suddenly and then Ayrton Senna occurred in front of me. Then I checked out the newspaper etc and his death was all around the news…
    Hibiki:  Such power!
    Maya: not really, it’s not really nice.
    KENKA: It’s not MAYA’s dream?!
    Maya: The easiest way to understand is random playing. I can understand what will be played next when I guess what is next, it will be played for real in 80%. *¹
    Tak: Well can’t you use the ability, To put a CD inside and that it will sell?
    Tasc: I will make Maya dream!
    All: Lol
  1. Yes Maya turned into another topic. a bit vague I know. =_=

 

  • CURE: It seems that a really great drummer did join the band.
    Hibiki: Maya joined a half year ago and the time flied.
    Tak: I did meet Maya last year in November. I met him in a session band. At that time we were looking for a drummer so I asked him to join. 
    Maya: Well actually he only said “there is no drummer”.  He spoke enthusiastically about the music and before I knew it I joined a rehearsal. 
    Kenka: I’ve foreseen this.
    ALL: Lol
    Maya: But the decide factor was that I played the SE of the [A Clockwork Orange] movie. It’s my favorite tune.
    Hibiki: Inside our music is also a portion of theater style. But it’s not easy to notice.
    Maya: That’s why I fitted in smoothly.
    Kenka: The joining way didn’t make much sense.(lol)
  • CURE: Well, let’s talk about your 2nd single “MORAL POLUTION”
    Hibiki: It will be national released at 8/11.
    Tak: At the release day there will be an in-store event in NOIZ shop in Shinjuku.
    TASC: I don’t speak much in MC’s, but since this is a long-awaited moment, I will try to give my best this time. (lol)
    Kenka: The title of the CD is English and means immortal. But the tracklist will be secret.

 

  • CURE: So could you give an hint about the content of the songs?
    Kenka: When Hibiki and Tak joins together a song good pop will be created.
    Hibiki:  The first song is a memorable one, which was made in the past. I wonder if there are many who were waiting for this song to be released? 
    Tak: We changed our sound and changed our identity.
    TASC: There is also a nice evil rough part with an exciting atmosphere.  Is it the spirit of the music who gives that feeling? The previous work was refined, because the melody of the consciousness image was summarized. However it feels like that the band has changed in a good way.
    Hibiki: After you listened to it, it will give you a pleasant feeling.

 

  • CURE: And Finally your  ambition to the readers.
    Hibiki: On this national tour I want to continue to elaborate our live vision more. That it seems that you are watching a movie.  Also I want to give a satisfaction such as the feeling of [I GOT THE MONEY! I GOT THE JOB!]  (lol) I’ll ask everyone who think “I might want to go” to come to our gig, everyone please check it out.

Calmando Qual
DSC_0092
The Japanese answer to BAUHAUS an NIN?
In July/August Calmando Qual will go on tour in Europe. Drummer SHIO is their new member. We asked all members some questions alone…

A few questions to vocalist Hibiki:
calmando3

So Calmando Qual will release a new CD this Summer?
– The upcoming album will be stylistically unbound. I think our music has grew powerfully.

What’s the difference between German and Japanese concerts?
– I think Japanese people are way more shy so that’s why I was not so outrageous on stage.
But I have checked out how German musicians are on stage, so I guess that I will be this time in summer way more outrageous on the strage than last time.

You don’t play an instrument, how do you stand your place in Calmando Qual?
– Of course with my voice. Also I try to be exuberant on stage to transfer my lyrics via my voice and body message.

About what are you singing in your songs “March Of The Apes” and “Hedonism”?
– In March of the Apes I sing about all the shit around me. Tasc wrote the chorus of Hedonism but I don’t even understand what’s it about…?

Your movements on the stage are not common, who or what was your inspiration for it?
– B-Horror-Movies, Robert DeNiro, Gary Oldman, Bruce Campbell, dogs, cats, insects and of course music.

If you was a woman what should have been your name?
Hibiki it’s a nice name. (Hibiki means; echo ) as noice and as voice. I also love the sound of how it’s been spoken out.

If there would be a comic about Calmando Qual. Would you like it?
– I would like to be represented as a conceivable evil person. There is no living creature who is more evil than a human being. I’m looking forward to the comic.

A few questions to guitarist Tak
calmando2

You are playing in more bands. Is it no problem for your inspiration?
– It’s difficult for my daily life. But it’s a lot of fun for me, because of this I can grow a lot.

The bands who you are playing in sound different than the sound of Calmando Qual. How do you get in the right vipe if you are playing in the other bands?
– Every band fits perfect to me, every band belongs to my style.

You are a big fan of Bauhaus. Do you also got the inspiration and style from the guitarist of Bauhaus?
– Bauhaus was a big influence for me.

A lot of German girls thought you were obviously highly attractive. How do you deal with it?
– Thank you very much! lol

How many guitars do you have and do they have a name?
– I own 4 guitars, but no of them have a name.

When did you start playing guitar and which song you mastered first?
– I did start playing guitar in Junior High School, One of Hides song was the first one which I could play.

Tell us something about your guitar style.
– Lot’s of guitarist love to play very fast. I love it more to create a “collage of noise” and to put way more feeling inside the solo’s.

A few questions to Bass Kenka

Did you get a new bass guitar?
– It’s a Gibson Thunderbird Studio 5 sting version.
This model has been released in Japan not long ago.
The sound has a beautiful average warm tone. The normal Thunderbird is not bad too, but you can’t compare it with my new bass. The tune let sound my play different but I really love it!

Drums or computer?
– Absolutely drums! With a drummer I can get inside the music way better and it’s way more  pleasant on the stage.

Why did you decide to play bass guitar and not normal guitar?
-I like the bass, he has a cool sound and the sound can be like melodious as rhythmically. I really like the optics of a bass a lot.

Are there songs from other bands which you like? from the point of a bassist?
-Every song, lol. Well I actually really do love melodious songs.

The way you present yourself on the stage, some people call it “demonic” or as “creepy”. What do you think about that?
– That’s the exact how it should been felt. If I’m not on the stage people don’t noise me at all, also I’m not creepy at all. They say that there is a big gab between me on the stage and backstage. So that’s why I wish it. So I’m evil? Peferfect, Thank you!

Who is the best lover? the bassist, the drummer, the guitarist, the – keyboarder or the vocalist?
In this band? I don’t know! I believe we are all repulsive, heh!

Woman wear a lot of different clothes, guys love some of those a lot, particularly: Lingerie, pants, dress, which one do you love the most?
– I don’t care, as so long it fits the woman. But lingerie you can’t really call that clothes isn’t? Of course I do like it too, but a woman never should show to much from herself.

A few questions to Tasc (keyboard)
calmando4

Lately a lot of bands have a keyboarder in their band.
– I think a band without a keyboarder sounds like the daily rock band. With a keyboard the sounds will be more electronically and more new and that’s what I like.

Because there is a new drummer, you don’t need to program that much anymore. Is it more easy for you now? Or is something missing now?
– My work isn’t more easy now. The work way didn’t really change to create a piece. So I don’t miss anything.

Which keyboards do you own? And which onces do you really like?
– I have 5 keyboards. Every keyboard has their own specialty, that why I can’t really say which one I like. I always need to sample lots of sounds to use on stage so that I only need one keyboard on stage. Actually I would like to bring all of them on the stage.

Did you ever take piano lessons?
– No, no lessons at all. My little sister has a piano in our parents home. She plays piano. I was always interested to create new tones. Playing was never important to me, to create new tones with the synthesizer that was important.

Famous piano players/organists/composers from Europe are Mozart and Bach. Can you play something of them?
– I know both but I can’t play anything from their works.

Which band was your biggest inspiration?
– Nine Inch Nails

What’s the biggest difference between a guitarist and a keyboardist. IF you look at the compose work.
– I think keyboards work more systematics. since I can play guitar and keyboard I’m able to create very raw song structures. Some songs which I have composed are completely free from keys.
