As far as my future plans with the so-called rock-and-roll scene are concerned, I will leave them to the stream that could possibly be made by the inertia of the new album. I don’t think of staging anything, I have no plans, and why should I have them if I have God with me?!
From a slight time distance, how did Goran Trajkoski see the concert in Frosina cinema, at MKC Skopje, held in the middle of December last year? How much is this meticulously and carefully prepared event a reflection of a search inside oneself? A need to throw a strong ray of light in the past, bite hard into the reality, and finally draw the contours of the future creative trajectory.
TRAJKOSKI: The performance in Frosina cinema was the first promotional presentation of my music from the new album in front of a live audience. This was the first thing that I had in mind as I was preparing it. The album has 9 pieces and a hidden one. I wanted to present them directly from a small distance before the audience, meeting the unwritten limit of 90 minutes of music, and I wanted to underline the performance with my bibliography from previous music works that I had with PADOT NA VIZANTIJA, MIZAR and ANASTASIA. My past work does not have to imperatively suggest the future trajectory, but it will by all means contribute to the identification of what I carry as new music material.
After such an explosive appearance in the public, what are your future moves? Will you go back to the loneliness in which you create theatre music? Or maybe now you prefer to ride on this raw emotion, on the energetic riffs… on the sounds and poetics that we know from the time of PADOT NA VIZANTIJA, MIZAR… Will your theatre music also be conditioned by this awareness?
TRAJKOSKI: My theatre music will be conditioned by the themes that we work on as theatre team: first of all with Projkovski and other colleagues. As far as my future plans with the so-called rock-and-roll scene are concerned, I will leave them to the stream that could possibly be made by the inertia of the new album. I don’t think of staging anything, I have no plans, and why should I have them if I have God with me?!
SECKO (MUGER FUGER):
For me, Gotra is an excellent example of a man and musician.
As people, as musicians… we function perfectly, when we start to work. Regardless of the fact that he and I are a bit different in some views. Whenever I thought of giving him a piece to work on I get something different than what I had in mind… At moments I become suspicious, and I need to listen to the recording some five-six times to realize that we have made a really good piece. This happened with “Novo Lisiče” and “Awakening of Spring”… With all pieces that we have put together. And I have already learnt not to understand a recording that he gives me at first, but a bit later.
I am not burdened by what has happened in the past, if it succeeded or if what I work on how will succeed. I leave it to the others to judge. And probably that’s where the success comes from. Because what comes out of us is honest. This part of our work, and if you want the past credit leaves for both of us some space for the future.
I hope that this cooperation will last as long as we exist. I am here to be for Gotra until the end of his life. Both as a man and as a musician.
