Rebecca Goldberg wrote TROIS CENT TROIS as an aural memoir with reflections of a late summer road trip through France in 2021. In TCT, Rebecca sonically guides us through the thrill of a new adventure and the risks involved in a time of overall uncertainty.
We have had the pleasure of interviewing her and this has been the result.
Hello! Where can we find you right now? How did you start your day?
Hello! I started my day with a walk outside and making some breakfast and coffee. I’m working from home preparing for my debut live set at Movement Festival in Detroit coming up in a couple of weeks.
When did the idea of starting a project like yours begin to form? Has it always been something you wanted to do?
The point of life for me is new experiences and to live life to the fullest. An example of this was my two-week tour across France last fall, which looking back, was the foundation and inspiration for this project.
How would you define the sound of your latest work?
Acid. Techno. Detroit. Contemporary.
What artists are you interested in these days?
I am obsessed with the band Khruangbin. I got the chance to see their live show last fall and was a loyal fan by the end of the show! I love the duo Boy Harsher and it’s been wonderful to see them grow over the last few years. =
How do you manage to combine such disparate genres? How do you manage to give them unity and harmony? What do they have in common for you?
How would you define your sound?
By not defining it at all? Ha. Obviously I have a usual set of instruments I use, so one could say that there I might have a signature sound simply by nature of the tools that I use. However, I have produced various styles and projects from live experimental performances and film scores to acid techno records and collaborations without categorization. I aim to challenge myself by trying new processes and pushing boundaries with each new project I work on.
Can you tell us something about your current or future projects?
Aside from the TROIS CENT TROIS EP, Jon Dixon and I have collaborated on a single called, «Our Morning,» coming out in early June via digital and flexi disc. I also have a field recording project coming soon with the BBC New Radiophonic Workshop that has been about a year in the making.
