>Nice. We are in Madrid waiting for the release of the CD Visceralofobia.
 
Carlos.R what noise do you make in Asseptic Room?
> Under my consideration, Asseptic Room make a sound, is like a mix of Hell electro, noise, and industrial repetitive sequences and disturbing samples.
 
How's the start of 2011 been for you thus far?

Other incoming projects?
>For the moment, "DREAD DIVISION" is a future project. But now, I´m working between a lot of things in a video clip with a song of the new album.
 
If people don't know what you and your music are about where have they been!?,how would you describe yourself?
> I started like a professional Dj in 1986 with EBM old School sessions in a lot of the best clubs in Madrid. At the beginning of 1992 my personal walking in music started next to Akai Keyboard and Atari, this bring to life a little album with 4 tracks called "Initial Command".
At latest 90's I met Marcos Calvo and  "Dioxyde"proyect and his first album was borned "Torschlusspanik" with the in conditional support of Johan Van Roy (Suicide Commando).In 2004 I left that project to start my own by The name Asseptic Room. My first album "Morbid Visions" cames out in 2006 under Dsbp Records.  And this year 2011 I'm back with Visceralofobia under Advoxya Records.
 
If you could play a show anywhere in the world where would it be?
>I would like to have concerts again in Holland, Belgium, Germany and another places in the world where people likes me and my music like I did in my time with Dioxyde.
 
What is your music background?  Who are you and your band members? Tell your story
>With my music I want to make the people feel the agony, despair, hates and phobias that are living inside me because of the injustices, doubts and emotions around me. Asseptic Room at the beginning is  a solitary project and sometimes counts with the admirable collaboration of a great friend of mine (A.Y) from Barcelona, who collaborates with me in some of the tracks and in band Lives shows. He prefers to be anonymous right now and I respect his decision.
 
What do you do when you're not partaking in band activities?
> I'm a 3D and graphic design teacher. I make a lot of graphics and with them I like to make fictions Landscapes. This is another creative art that lives inside me since I was younger.
 
Back to your roots, how did you first come to music?
>Everything begins a lot of years ago when I started to be interest in a particular dark sound of a mitic bands. Font Line Assembly, Click Click, Pankow, Skinny Puppy, The Klinik, X Marks the Pedwalk, Scarecrow, and the first albums of Suicide Commando, Stin Scatzor, and my favorite band Infact. All of them was my inspiration and my help to take out all of my toughs and dark feelings.
 
Tell me about this labels DSBP, Noise Terror Productions, Advoxya Records?
>The most positive of them is how they helped me to make the dreams that I had so long ago true. Thanks to Johan.V.R we get in  Dying Culture with Dioxyde, later because of Noise Terror Productions, Marcos Calvo will take out the second part of Dioxyde.
When I left Dioxyde, Tommy.T (DSBP) gives me the chance of take out the album of Asseptic Room (Morbid Visions). Only my heart know show grateful I am for the unconditional support in this project. Now Dimitry (Advoxya Records) is offering me a new opportunity of release a new work with Asseptic Room and very thankful for that. There is a promising future.
 
 
When did you form Asseptic Room? What inspired you to make music together?
>Asseptic Room was taking form since a few years, even when I was inside Dioxyde project. My head just needed to create music that was inside me and all of it was becoming true with time. A dark sound, with infinite sequencies and evil melodys, noise and samples are the mix that are Asseptic Room. A.Y and me met a few years ago in Barcelona, and through years a big friendship and complicity has been made at the time that we work together. He is a great complement of Asseptic Room music, and he gives force and makes it richer.

> The lyrical compositions of the album Visceralofobia are more elaborated and I gave them more importance that in my latest works. I wanted to prepare a lot of Spanish songs for this album.
 
 
How did you sell your CD's/Audio Files? (Consignment? Live sales? My space, iTunes,Distributor?) Since the music industry is more open now to purely electronic music has this made things easier for you?
>I suppose that the CD is going to be selling  in specialty stores and also by the label. I´m going to sell copies in my web and other kind of merchandise. Although right now every body  make music by software, I really enjoy to play with the hardware and maximize all of the possibilities of them. There a lot of way to walk by me and Keyboard "Novation".
 
So what are their main influences as a band at the moment?
>I´m not influenced by and any band actually. I like to get carry away by the compositions, although sometimes my work is unconsciously influenced by all kind of bands and music that I was been listening my haul life as a Dj. But I have to say that I have some musical preferences by bands like Infact o Suicide Commando (at the beginning).
 
Do you see the Internet as a benefit for bands like Asseptic Room? Does the growing possibility of someone downloading your material, rather than buying it, worry you?
>Internet has two faces, in one everybody loose and that´s why our music is running without control and all of this makes that the labels sinks because of the lower benefits that they reach.  Most of all the smallest labels. The other face of the internet is that maybe allow us to share our music with the haul world by webs. Specialized in bands and discussion forums. Right now the music of a small band like A.R can reach anywhere in the  world and that´s a very  great attractive that we don´t have to forget.
 
How do you see the future of download / Copyright in area of goth- Electro / Industrial music ? What are the best ways to develop it in your mind?
>The uncontrolled downloads by internet are going to undermine the artist gradually and a lot of the works are going to be reduced because of the illegal downloads. We need to find a balance between.
 
What about all the big festivals? Summer Darkness in the netherlands? Mera Luna in Germany Familientreffen in Germany and Wave Gothic Treffen in Germany and many more?
>I'd never been, is a big dream for me and I hope can be in one of then soon. I think that this  festivals helps to know the old and new bands. The environment should be great.
 
What is the key to making music from Asseptic Room and what inspires you to keep growing as a musician?
>Assseptic Room music comes from the depths of my being. If I hadn't feelings, dreams, phobias, concerns; Asseptic Room it can be exist. I'm inspired by everything around me, the injustice, wars, nuclear accidents, and slaughter of animals, mental illness, and a lot of things that haunt us.I like to take my time in creations. Is hard to find a sound, melody or even the sequence that simplicy what is inside me. Also the support of the fans is determinant when I'm creating hell sequences.
 
If there was one thing you want people to know about your band what would that be?
>Asseptic  Room is not a dark dancing band as those that exist today. My project is going to show a different style depending the moment and the mood in what is materialized. I want to thank to all of my fans, family and friends for the unconditional support that never stops to give me.
 
Please let us know about your upcoming plans, some new releases you like to confirm here
