Popular Dutch group, Spectral Display, stopped by for a chat; what a treat!
Colby: What Do You Enjoy Most About Being A Musician?
Spectral Display: Being able to create my own world through music and words is magnificent. This can be or either film, dance or pop music.
Colby: Which Track Of Yours Means The Most To You?
Spectral Display: A fan just recently wrote to me that my signature song ‘It Takes A Muscle Too Fall In Love’ made his last 5 years bearable. Which he thanked me for. This makes releasing every song worthwhile.
Colby: The First-Ever Gig You Played, Can You Remember It? How Was It?
Spectral Display: Ha, I was 18 years old, just released my first single and played in the Milkyway [Melkweg] in Amsterdam. There were like 60 people. And it thrilled me to be in front of an audience and improvise on the spot.
Colby: What Do You Think Is The Key To Success As A Musician?
Spectral Display: Coming from the 80s with less technical possibilities I have been forced to make simple but effective choices in how `I could let my music sound as strong as possible. My first hit song ‘It Takes A Muscle Too Fall In Love’ was produced on a 4 Track Tape deck. The sound and vocal were different from what was heard before.
Colby: If You Wasn’t A Musician, What Job Would You Be Doing?
Spectral Display: I would have been a painter or graphic designer. I find a lot of joy in creating covers, promos & video clips for my music.
