2013-05-16 - Hunger (UK) - Sir Tom Baker interview (excerpt)

http://www.hungertv.com/feature/the-interview-sir-tom-baker/

(...)

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON AT THE MOMENT?
I’ve been working on an order for Depeche Mode which is quite punk in style actually. We wove a whole bolt of tartan, absolutely stunning rock ‘n’ roll tartan with silver and electric blue through it. The order was 22 pieces, we did jackets, waistcoats and trousers. Some of the jackets are frayed and some of the trousers are skin head length which look great because Martin Gore has these big Rick Owens Doc Martens.

The 56 greatest songwriters of all time
Who have you voted the greatest pop/rock tunesmiths ever?

22: Martin Gore
Depeche Mode's main songwriting force helped define the sound of ‘80s synth-pop and new wave with big hitters such as Personal Jesus and Enjoy The Silence. Since then, he and the band have gone on to sell more than 100 million albums and singles and - rarest of all for an '80s act - retain critical acclaim.
Enjoy The Silence? No thank you.

2014-06-02 - Musicriot (UK) - Phil Burdett interview

http://musicriot.co.uk/featured/phil-burdett-part-two/

Question: How did you react when punk came along?

Phil Burdett: Loved it; I actually loved it and weirdly I wanted it to do what it wanted to do because up to that point my heroes were not punk at all and the very antithesis of punk. I wanted it, because I would have been about seventeen then, leaving school, and just starting to think about playing music in pubs and got a band together; well, actually, I got a duet together with Martin Gore (yes, that Martin Gore) and we were trying to write songs. He liked, I don’t know who he liked, I think it was Simon and Garfunkel at the time and he did like Sparks and David Bowie. I liked David Bowie but I wasn’t sure, I didn’t trust him which now, I think, was probably wrong, but I didn’t get the idea that superficial and chameleon-like was his theme. At the time I thought ‘I don’t believe he really means this’ and at that time it had to mean it and that meant a lot to me and I was probably wrong and Gore was probably way ahead of me on that. So we wrote songs which I tried to make melodic and soulful and he wanted to make strange and weird. I taught him how to play guitar and he was a better guitar player than he is, well, what he’s ended up as. We were writing some interesting songs at the time and we went out as this strange band and the punk happened, halfway through this band.

(…)

When the post-punk thing happened, I used to like some of the bands that became known as Krautrock, Can, Neu and the newer ones as well, Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft and Einsturzende Neubauten who were pure noise and distortion and the English versions of that like Cabaret Voltaire; I loved all of that. I thought there’s a synth thing going on and Martin got into it, so he buggered off and did Depeche Mode. Suddenly it turned into this really twee pop with no substance. I don’t hate pop music but I thought, with everything he knew, and the stuff he liked, I thought he would have gone towards Throbbing Gristle rather than this thing that happened, which seemed like it was going to be over in five minutes. For all I know he’s now a multi-millionaire and I’m sitting in a pub in Leigh.

2015-02-03 - Sony (US) - Martin Gore in upcoming Notes For Notes documentary

http://blog.sony.com/press/sony-pxw-x180-is-note-perfect-for-music-benefit-concert-film-and-documentary/
http://www.depeche-mode.com/2015/02/04/martin-gore-in-upcoming-notes-for-notes-documentary/



[Martin Gore is one of the many artists to be featured in an upcoming documentary for Notes For Notes, a charity foundation dedicated to giving youth the space and equipment to record and explore music. Since Notes For Notes also has two studios in Santa Barbara, Martin Gore has been involved in this foundation for at least 6 years. He is a member of their advisory board and has been a DJ at three of their annual 'Holiday Soundcheck" events.

In an interview with Notes For Notes about the camera that is being used for this project, it is revealed that interviews have been shot "with noted artists about their personal music –life moments for a documentary called “This is Eleven.”" With the initial phase of production on the documentary complete, Notes for Notes is gearing up to shoot more footage and is exploring using a crowdfunding campaign to help fund the remainder of the production. The team there says, the finished piece is sure to amaze and all that can be said at this point is that “it goes to 11!”  To learn more about Notes for Notes and the upcoming documentary please visit notesfornotes.org.]

2015-04-17 - SBMS: The Diamond (US) - SBMS Performing Arts Studio

http://sbms.org/94newsletter/2014/Diamond_Fall_2014.pdf



In 2010, when SBMS moved into our new home here at the Jefferson campus, I heard that a room was being reserved specifically for music and performing arts. This news was a windfall of excitement. As a teacher and musician, I couldn’t wait to get other dreamers involved to help me begin a journey towards creating one of the finest music/recording studios that any of our local schools have ever seen. And that’s exactly what we’ve done!
Now, as we look to the future, I must first go with some gratitude. From the beginning, 8th grade parent Mike McCrory has been the driving force, construction foreman and friend to this project. Without his “can-do” spirit, his expert problem solving skills and enthusiasm, we would not be here today. Thanks Mike! And to Will Fredricks a huge thank you for putting on the finishing touches and getting our dream ready for the 2014-15 school year.
As for design, SBMS is ever so fortunate to have the renowned expertise of 9th grade parent Harry Rabin to draw from. Designer and builder of multiple world-class recording studios, Harry laid the plans for us and continues to help us fine tune the details. Mille grazie Harry!
Our Fine Arts teacher, Suzanne Prince, inspired students to “cover” our walls with their beautiful renditions of some of their favorite album covers. As a living project, I hope to see these walls eventually form a mosaic covering the walls from top to bottom.
As a young musician in the 1980s, I never dreamed I would have the chance to collaborate with Martin Gore on a project such as designing a world-class recording studio for Middle School kids! Thank you, Martin, for your kind and generous support in taking us to the next level and beyond!
William Butler Yeats said, “Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.” I am so excited to begin the next chapter of the SBMS musical journey with colleagues and friends like Zach Wallace, Glen Phillips, Ken Urbina, Lige Allan-Blitz and others as we get our fires stoked by the endlessly creative music students of SBMS.
-With deep gratitude, Marco Andrade

2016-01-12 - Martin Gore on Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/MartinGore/posts/993357864043863

David Bowie - Where does one start? Is it too obvious to state that he was the most influential artist for people of our generation and younger? Ziggy Stardust was the first album I owned and his ability to innovate meant that I was waiting patiently for the release of Blackstar just a few days ago.
I have heard Bowie blasting from Mr. Gahan’s dressing room way too many times to begin to count. Heroes was the first song that we ever played as the original Depeche Mode. We were all much more than casual fans.
He is the only artist who compelled us to rush to a record store on day one of a release back in the days of vinyl and beyond. His music is what grabbed us but he was so much more than just a musician.
To follow Bowie, to be one of his fans, was to be led on a magical, winding journey. He constantly pushed boundaries and introduced us to styles and genres we were unaware of or didn’t exist before he invented them.
He was a star - the star of stars. For us, he was the greatest legend. A legend who never rested on his laurels but continued to experiment up until his death.
We, along with the rest of the world, mourn the loss of our greatest talent. This will be a hard one to recover from.

2016-04-19 - Jean-Michel Jarre in a video Q&A on Facebook:

[Thanks to Facebook page DMode Radio for breaking this story.]

https://www.facebook.com/jeanmicheljarre/videos/10154145630474096/

At 09:38 minutes in, Jean-Michel says:

"After working with Vince Clarke, we said to Vince it could be interesting to ask Martin [Gore] to collaborate on a remix on Automatic, but he was agreeing about the principle... He lacked the principle, but he was just starting the new Depeche Mode album - the next Depeche Mode album. So I hope it will be for the future to... I would love to collaborate with Martin Gore, he's a great artist. But you know, after a while you have to stop working with different people, because it could never end. One of the music critiques of my friend told me that I had just invented the concept of the never-ending album, but I had to stop Electronica 2 and I will see later, but now, this kind of collaboration, and also with other people, will maybe hopefully be in the future."

2016-07-21 - Waves.com (US) - “Music Is a Beautiful Curse”

“Music Is a Beautiful Curse”: Martin Gore by Alan Branch

Alan Branch
Producer / Engineer / Writer / Musician
Nine Inch Nails, Sinéad O’Connor, Depeche Mode, Blur

Celebrating Martin Gore’s 55th birthday, Depeche Mode producer Alan Branch talks about Gore’s “mix of technology, original soundscapes and traditional blues.”
He is one of popular music’s leading figures for the last four decades, and July 23, 2016 is his 55th birthday. As songwriter, producer, guitarist, keyboard player and singer in Depeche Mode and on his solo projects, Martin Gore has entertained and influenced millions through his unique touch that is always both sophisticated and emotionally direct. To celebrate Gore’s many contributions to music and sound, we’ve asked producer, mixer and engineer Alan Branch to share some of his personal and professional impressions of Gore.
“I don’t think there are many people in the music industry who haven’t been influenced or touched in some way by Martin’s songwriting over the last few decades,” says Branch. “He writes from the heart and has that twisted, melancholic life-examining way of touching something that resonates inside. As for arrangements and production, he’s up there with the best. Simply put, he’s what I would call a proper record producer: he has the experience and knowledge of what works. If there’s such a thing as a Depeche Mode ‘sound,’ I’d say it’s the mix of technology, original soundscapes and traditional blues.
“I remember working on ‘Barrel of a Gun,’ which was exciting. We were working out of an SSL studio in north London, and we would use all kinds of outboard gear, often trying to push things to the limit by experimenting with patches, routing and gear abuse in a weird and wonderful way.
“When we were working with Paul Freegard – a good friend of Martin's and an amazing producer who really understood the Depeche Mode sound – Paul was saying that Martin is the most focused individual he’d ever worked with. I remember Martin starting every day with a run or a workout, just to kick-start the session. He's always pushing the envelope with every new project, which keeps you on your toes. He hates mediocrity and is totally dedicated to his craft.
“One of my favorite lines from Martin is ‘music is a beautiful curse.’ Happy birthday, Martin, and thanks for being such a pioneer.”
