From DreamDoll to Danny Elfman
Also this week:
Print star Danny Elfman told us of his Coachella performance that, “It was the most really terrifying thing I’ve ever done in my life, because I put it together as a concept in 2019 as this mosh of stuff that had no business being on the same stage at the same time. The promoter had been trying to get me there for a decade and I finally went, and when I saw the screens, I got really excited by the potential. Because I like visuals. I put together this concept and working on it in 2019, I was like, ‘I don’t know if this works at all,’ and then it all canceled. I was like, ‘I guess I don’t have to worry about it.’ Then two years later, I hear, ‘Coachella’s back,’ but we don’t know if we’re involved. It’s all different acts, and different headliners. I said, ‘Well I don’t have to worry about it, maybe it’s just as well. Then suddenly we get the call ‘We’re on!’ And I go, ‘Shit!’ I’m right back to where I was three years earlier.”
In “Not Another DJ,” AYYBO said, “There’s so many artists that have been carving their own sound and adding diversity which makes this scene so exciting. It’s like a never ending cycle of evolution that is flourishing with new directions and sub-genres. Electronic music in California is so malleable where you can find all kinds of music and artists that come from all around the world. That’s why I love living here, it’s abundant with creativity that sees no boundaries.”
