If people don't know what you and your music are about where have they been!?,how would you describe yourself?

sessions in a lot of the best clubs in Madrid. At the beginning of 1992

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

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?

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
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.

>Working in that I like to do (Designing computer graphics) and living my normal life with my couple.
And that's how you came up with the name of the band? How did you come up with the name Asseptic Room?

the name Asseptic Room came. The conclusion is that my fantastic and
ideal world was totally dead of evilness, tyranny, power, diseases,

combine it and formed Asseptic Room.

What new music inspires you when you are writing? Tell me about
lyrical compositions what you can tell about the done work? How does
your music creation process work? How do you create a song?
> 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
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
>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
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

radio ore internet ore clubs? who was the DJ that played your song?

here in Madrid. But I have to say that the first time that I hearted it
I felt so great just seeing people dancing by swing of "From Hell"

I'll be working harder in this live project so more people can enjoy it.
