  • IsComputerOn - Portable Interview.
    about Starsongs how different was the whole process from songwriting to recording and publishing it compared to that of the other albums by Portable Chance Well the biggest difference was the way we recorded and produced it It was extremely grass roots with very little money Our 1 st two albums were recorded and produced at real studios with producers and engineers and assistants and lobbies Hell Little Record Player track 5 of Starsongs was completely recorded at our rehearsal studio in Van Nuys Most of the vocals and guitars and bass were recorded in a friend s garage studio Much more organic blood sweat and tears sort of thing ICO Neat Are you satisfied with the results with pulling this all off Chance Definitely I mean I am and have always been somewhat of a perfectionist So I can always sing such and such better or maybe we could have used a different sound there or there etc But that being said I am very happy and proud ICO Simply cause basically all of you spent more time on this album do you feel more affection towards this album as well Chance That s hard to say really Every song is like a kid to me and I find affection merited in even the ones that don t make it very far So I m always going to have faves and songs that could have been better ICO I personally am totally crazy about Mind Over Matter and DaaT digs Day After Yesterday Which track from Starsongs is your favorite and why Do they have any kind of special meaning to you Chance Day After Yesterday has the most special meaning for me ICO How s that Chance Well first off it was the way in which it came to be I was watching Finding Forrester with my acoustic guitar on my lap Sean Connery s character spoke of this way of writing where you sit up at your typewriter and starting typing I was riveted by the notion and wanted to try it His idea was write first fix later So I had just detuned my low E to a D and was playing open D chords I heard something I liked and just went to my computer and started typing At first it had a story vibe but since I m more of a lyricist began to take on a meter and rhyme of something poetic like I e mailed it to myself at work ICO Cool Chance The very next morning Monday morning I wrote the lyrics or fixed them in one fell swoop I started coming up with melodies to a certain point quickly thereafter And then in the pit of my stomach I just had to record it that day I borrowed some mics from a friend rushed to rehearsal studio after work and recorded it all myself My head was spinning reeling from excitement I couldn t remember the last time I was so happy with a song It just made me happy I was literally jumping around because I just felt that so many little things were firing in unison at once It just felt great That is the reason I write music For that feeling right there ICO So it actually is more or less a solo song Chance Yes ICO How did the others like it Chance They actually loved it It s just so different and the demo came out so nice we never really wanted to touch it ICO Great You re not the only one of the band doing solo and side projects are you I know of Sebastian who also makes dance and alternative music and Brian is invited to do drumming for other bands Do you think making music by yourself as well is important Chance I never really thought of it that way I just write Sometimes I guess it s nice to have outlets And regarding the guys Seb s electronic stuff is very important to him and serves as a great outlet Plus his electronic stuff is great ICO I heard some of his work it s twisted but very enjoyable at times Your lyrics in general all seem pretty deep What thoughts are there behind the lyrics you write Chance I don t feel I go out of my way to write intentionally deep lyrics What I think I do though is intentionally not write words I find trite I set a pretty high standard and sometimes they come across as deep I guess the intent or hope is that they appeal universally but that s not always going to happen and I fully understand that going in I don t know that I have specific subject parameters so I guess it s situational to what I m feeling thinking observing etc ICO So what you re saying is you want people to relate the lyrics to themselves so that to me the lyrics might have an entirely different meaning than they initially did to you Chance Actually many times I enjoy that feature of the written language the art of interpretation I enjoy leaving it just vague enough so that it can have different meanings It doesn t always happen like that but it happens alot Cassiopeia is a perfect example of a vague song You would have no idea unless I told you ICO Ha you remember I came up with this explanation about gorillas or something to the lyrics of King Of The Mountain Chance Yea that was awesome LOL ICO I thought I was more or less on the right track apparently not Chance The beautiful thing is I think that one is more self eplanatory than most but you really interpreted it oh shall we say differently ICO Hmmm that s pretty embarassing then Well that s where my train of thoughts went anyhow Does the title Starsongs represent anything Chance I don t really remember

    settings structures so that the drivers have access to them during boot before the kernel can access the hard disk and d jump into the kernel and give control to it Right now I ve done the OpenFirmware bindings for the boot loader That means you can put it on any OpenFirmware machine like the Pegasos or say a G4 Mac and it ll work It now understands Intel Amiga and Apple partitioning systems and can read from BFS little endian big endian and AmigaFFS disks It provides a Posix like environment You have printf puts open close malloc etc That made the userland bindings for it easy to do Right now it will scan all partitions and will print out the root directory and volume name of every supported disk AmigaFFS is needed because that s one file system I can read write access on the Pegasos So I don t need to copy over whole partitions or something but can just replace one file But you can also print out your UAE ADF s using it ADF s being the floppy disk images you use to play old Amiga games in UAE I used one of the install
