An Interview with Wilfred

Updated: Aug 6, 2022



I have been joined by Wilfred who have answered some questions about his music journey so you can find out more about him!


Welcome to Totally Music, would you like to introduce yourself?

Hello, I am “Wilfred”, I make electronic music in my shed.


How did you get into music?

Originally I played in a few bands with friends and we rocked some pubs and jammed a lot, improvising being a big component of the type of music we made. A little bit before all the lockdowns I got really into electronic music. Electronic textures and sounds always intrigued me though, I loved making weird noises with my guitar pedals, and I studied music production in college so i think over time these two interests combined and i just really enjoyed playing around with production and sound design.


What has been your favourite musical memory

This is a hard question.

Definitely a good memory I have is making an album with my friend Johnny. It was for a college project and we had a great time fluting about in the recording studio trying mic techniques and playing on each others tracks, doing over dubs and what not. I have an awful habit of deleting project files that I get frustrated with though, which happens frequently!


Aside from that I think general discovery of music is always exciting. Be that with new music discoveries, or discovering new ways to write stuff. Discovering Brian Eno was a fairly huge step in my musical discovery over the last few years, so that's a fond one too.


You have a new EP coming out in August, what can we expect from it?

Hhhhhmmmm….

I suppose it’s a continuation of my last EP, “Hello, Friend”. Sonically it is electronic music that would be suited for a set of headphones and a dark room as opposed to dancefloor oriented electronic music. Discovery is a common production theme for me so i like to create all the sounds myself, or as much as I can anyway, so there's some weird harsh sounds to be heard contrasted with some nice sounding synths and what not. I used a guitar on one of the tracks which was fun, I haven't recorded with guitars since the “Lava Lamps” EP, but the guitar is very textural sounding as opposed to riffing out some licks.


What’s your dream venue and why?

Oh man, I would take anywhere!


If you could collaborate with anyone, who would it be and why?

Either John Frusciante, or Thom Yorke. Both have kickass solo albums that experiment with synthesisers and mangled beats in unbelievable ways. Thom Yorke’s “Anima” and Frusciante's “A Sphere in the Heart of Silence” were both HUGE influences on my music.


What do you find to be one of the biggest challenges?

Sometimes finding time to be creative can be a challenge with work schedules. At the end of a long day it can be hard to sit down and get stuck into something but it has to be done!

Also just trying to get an audience can be a challenge, social media plays a big role in that now and social media is not my strongest skill.


What is one thing you’ve learnt that has helped you with your music career?

If it sounds good then it is good.


What’s next for you?

I would like to play some gigs! First I must make a live-set and secure some gigs, I’m constantly getting frustrated at my live-set… so I need to master that.
