Q&A With Me

Earlier last week I asked everyone to post any questions they have for me, and I promised to answer as much as I can. So I made the video below with all the answers for you guys.

A Couple of Questions I Missed

Ken, my friend from Inhale The Heavy; I apologize. Apparently I missed the question you posted on my blog, due to the high level of spam comments I get on the blog (very frustrating). But I will answer your question right here right now.

Hey Shant, It’s Ken from Inhale the Heavy. I’m a huge fan of your work and a your band Semantic Saturation. I was wondering if there will be a follow up to the debut, ‘Solipsistic’, and are you currently working on any other projects.?
Thanks,
Ken {- -}\m/

There will definitely be a follow up, with the same musicians? perhaps not. I’m not yet working on any new material, cause we currently have plans a to make a music video for one of the tracks from Solipsistic (can’t say which one yet). I will start writing new material after the video release, and hopefully get these brilliant musicians I have in mind to feature on my next work.

Sylvain Rodrigue asked on Facebook: I have a good idea, but what is the meaning of Semantic’s album cover?

Sylvain, sorry couldn’t include the answer in the video.
Well the cover pretty much represents Solipsism, the girl is in a delusional city, where everything looks real from her point of view, but from our point of view we can see all the people working on making the city and her surroundings as real and believable as it can be. The artist Saad Fanari who designed all the artwork on the Digipak has paid attention to every little detail to complete the story and make it comprehensible, so I will not reveal everything and spoil the fun for you. (Hint: The unfolded artwork is continuous)

And below are my Axe-FX settings for the lead guitar I used on Solipsistic, I named it Crunchy Lead:
