I’m Caspar, my role is being in charge of killing it a 100 % of all the time on a substantial amount of synthesizers.
We’re in Copenhagen. The music scene is pretty diverse, anything from techno to punk rock finds a decent audience here.
Out of a desire to talk movies, watch Tim Heidecker and eat burgers on a regular basis with each other. Making epic albums is a great pastime between these events.
We wanted to call ourselves Placenta Wire, Carnal Wee Pit or Racial New Pet, but settled on Palace Winter as a more harmless and less offensive anagram.
Finishing the Football World Cup. Should be doable. Also doing a lot of instrumental music on modular synthesizers. But actually mainly taxes and handling the financial stress that comes with the pursuit of happiness.
We each bring in little doodles, but we basically just meet up in my studio and start jamming on guitar and piano and drum machines. Eventually something that we like will come up, and then we repeat it and build on it. We always only record on iphones until we have a complete song. Then the production part starts, but the song comes first. Influences come from all over, but to be honest we mostly talk movies or what Bill Hader or Fred Armisen or Tim Heidecker is up to. I tend to watch a lot of Jeff Goldblum talkshow appearances and force them on Carl too.
Instrumental music. Mostly my own stuff. But also Abul Mogard, Jan Johansson, Keith Jarrett, Brad Mehldau, Lennie Tristano. And Jon Hopkins is great.
I wanted a drumkit for my 6th birthday and got a small synthesizer instead.
Carl plays electric and acoustic guitars. I play synthesizers and pianos, and our live-drummer JB plays the drums on the new album. Also, if you hear a tambourhine or shaker, that’s me.
I really want to get back to finishing watching a bunch of Hitchcock movies, which was something I started doing a while back. Oh yeah, and we’re going on a tour of Europe/UK in October.
I look at the big internet and the small internet, watch movies and talkshows, especially with my favourites Norm MacDonald or Martin Short. Listen to podcasts with artists trying to explain the inexplicable.
Favourite food is probably the burger, for which Copenhagen is a pretty good place. #1 is Gasoline Grill, #2 Tommi’s, #3 is..hmm.. tough one, Taxa, I think. Look ‘em up if you’re in Copenhagen. Favourite hangout is tough, probably my studio, I hardly ever go out. I like going there especially if I have nothing specific to work on.
