Teorema Interview


1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
Teorema is a metal and rock music project, we try to incorporate doom, sludge and noise rock sounds, nowadays we are generating new sounds at live presentations like free improvisation and incidental noise.

2.So far you have released one album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?
It´s very raw, harsh and atmospheric, we recorded it  in a few sessions, we liked to bring a very real stuff, who represents what we are, we think we achieve to show all the stuff we had in mind before working on this production.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
There are few lyrics, but the subjects are inspired by existentialism, pessimism,  anarchism, religious criticism and post-apocalyptic sci-fi.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Teorema'?
We take it primarily from a movie of the italian writer and director Pier Paolo Pasolini, it haves a very inspiring plot based in existentialism and some deep and philosophical subjects.

5.Currently there are only 2 members in the band, are you planning on expanding the line up in the future or do you chose to remain a duo?
We would like to remain as a duo, but we are planning to incorporate some new sounds, maybe loops or some prerecorded ambient noises, we are working on it.

6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
I think that our best shows are those that we played this last year, since a line up change, Leo "Mariguanoto" is an amazing drummer and also he brings a very weird show, including some "happening" or "artistic performance" near to contemporary art, our show nowadays is very cathartic, we take the freedom to do any stuff we want, like making free imporvisation, noises or dancing all over the stage, its very funny to us and the people who see us live.

7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
We are planning to play at two mexican cities this year, we hope that next year we could make a mexican tour or probably an Europe or U.S. tour, our release at Via Nocturna could bring us new possibilities to bring shows a other cities or countries.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your album by fans of underground music?
It has been awesome. Since we have uploaded digital songs, Teorema appeared at different webzines, podcast, compilations and press magazines all over Europe, US, and Latin America, we had great feedback about our music, we are very pleased about that, with the Via Nocturna release we hope more rock/metal fans can hear about us.

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
We see us growing musically, trying with new stuff, not only with extreme metal, we could incorporate and fusion with other genres, with new rhythms and chord progressions, we would like to play live at many places as we can, and keep on doing weird things alive, keeping our cathartic ritual.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listenin to nowadays?
Mainly extreme metal, some classic bands like Venom, Hell Hammer, Celtic Frost and Bathory, as well some "Sabbath riffs", we like to listen some sludge or doom metal bands like Corrupted, Earth, Melvins, Eyehategod and Iron Monkey, we listen a lot of industrial rock/metal, crust punk, seventies progressive rock, mainly "zheul music" or RIO like Magma and Univers Zero, some jazz stuff, ambient music, noise rock and folk music from Latin America, Europe and Indian music. There is a universe of music to listen and we are open for new stuff to incorporate as a influence to our sound.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?
Many old and weird movies like Begotten from Elias Merhige, visual arts and painters like Egon Schiele, Emil Nolde, H.R. Giger, George Grozs, and philosophy authors like Heidegger, Nietzsche, Michel Foucault and Baruch de Spinoza.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
We have to thank all people that support us, it feels great to read great feedbacks of our music, we play music mainly as a therapy against this sick world in which we live... Music for us is a great ritual and celebration of life. We are full of joy and grateful, because in spite we had no great expectations, many people all over the world are interested our stuff. It´s great for us!
