1. Cru cru, what first got you into music?

Chris Wirsig: That’s a tough question. I always liked to listen to music from an early age on, and when I started piano lessons as a little kid, I soon tried out doing my own thing (not necessarily something you’d want to listen to…). I somehow always had that urge to write and produce music.

Will Carpenter: I’ve always been drawn to music from a very young age. My mom tells a story about leaving me alone for a couple minutes in a room playing with my blocks with a Vivaldi concerto playing and coming back in to find me humming along ‘flawlessly’ – but she’s probably biased. I started with violin lessons at an early age, followed by piano, but I liked learning by ear and wound up finding the bass and guitar, discovering all sorts of music from The Beatles to Nirvana to Metallica to Pink Floyd and the rest has all just been a journey!

2. What would you do if you had a time machine?Chris Wirsig: Probably go back in time to see some concerts from iconic artists and composers. And I’m also really interested on what mankind will be in 100 or 200 years.

Will Carpenter: Freak the hell out, hah! But yeah, I’m with Chris, I’d probably explore the past to experience some iconic individuals and moments in time – and then I’d probably get the space time continuum in a LOT of trouble by getting curious about the future.

3. What’s your favorite album of all time?Chris Wirsig: Hard to say, there are too many. But some that are on the favorite list are Nine Inch Nails’ “Pretty Hate Machine,” Pet Shop Boys’ “Behaviour” and “Introspective,” Queen’s “Innuendo,” Tangerine Dream’s “Stratosfear,” Laibach’s “NATO,” and currently new to the list is Filter’s new album “The Algorithm.” But there are so many more…

Will Carpenter: Wow that is an impossible question. Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side Of The Moon” is definitely on that list, “Nevermind” by Nirvana, “October Rust” by Type O Negative and “Purple” by Stone Temple Pilots to name a few… but I’ll say I am an album purist – I believe an album should tell a story, and the minute I hear a ‘filler’ song I’m just kinda disappointed in the experience as a whole.

4. Will you tell us something embarassing about you?Will Carpenter: My own album “Ages” also would make the ‘favorite album’ list… I’m always a little mortified to admit that.

Chris Wirsig: That’s totally understandable – what would be the point of releasing music if you don’t really like your own stuff. I have a ton of other embarrassing things, but that would be too much for this interview ;)

5. What are you doing to ensure you continue to grow and develop as an artist?Chris Wirsig: I’m keeping curious about new music (and old music I haven’t heard yet), production and writing techniques. I love to mix genres and styles so it stays interesting.

Will Carpenter: With such a wide range of influences I think that kinda happens pretty naturally, but I also think that continuing to explore different collaborations (such as the one Chris and I created together) is a really amazing way to pull yourself outside any ‘box’ you’re existing in creatively.

6. Are you a music fan?Chris Wirsig: Oh yes, and throughout all different genres.

Will Carpenter: Of course – and also very eclectic as far as genre ranges.

7. Do you have any hobbies or interests outside of music?Chris Wirsig: I like to read – from non-fiction to fiction, and also old and new comic books. And go hiking with our dogs.

Will Carpenter: I love to cook – I used to work in restaurants so I’m pretty particular about my cooking and it’s become more of a joy than a chore these days now that I’m not doing it as my job. I also love to hike, travel, I dabble (usually badly) in golf and I have a six month old daughter and a two year old goldendoodle named Georgie.

8. What’s movie do you love the most?Chris Wirsig: Again, there are several. But in the top ten are definitely “LA Story,” “Hereditary” and “Life Of Brian.”

Will Carpenter: Another impossible question for me.  I will say that I think “True Romance” might have been Tarantino’s best, although that might be an unpopular opinion.  I grew up on the original Star Wars trilogy and always loved how George Lucas mixed mythological and theological concepts into what was largely perceived as ‘science fiction’.  I guess I tend to gravitate towards thought provoking and layered plots.  I also LOVE Monty Python.

9. Who came first? The Pigeon or the egg?Chris Wirsig: The old conundrum…  my head explodes just thinking about it ;)

Will Carpenter: Hah! What Chris said… :-)

10.  Do you agree with the Pigeon?

Chris Wirsig: Oh, of course – always.

Will Carpenter: Without a doubt.
