They say that great things happen in the universe by chance. It was about that incident when I discovered the music of Korien Daniel Csernie via Google +. I don’t really interact with a lot of people there because my main source of communication is facebook. But when it happens the interaction always proves to be meaningful and fruitful.
We started talking about music and life. The latter took most of our time. I did ask him during the course of our conversation if he has a tune he would like me to hear. After all, when I go online it is always to do research and hear new tunes. He gave me the astonishing Self-Realization(see video below). This surprised be because he is in a metalcore band. This is electronic symphony. He can compose complicated tunes on a spot. This man is a walking musical gold mine! I was also chuffed when he said he composed a tune for me. The tune is called Stand Firm as a Rock which I attached here, down at the end of this interview.
I said hey, I am going to conduct and interview with you. What do you think? He agreed but he said it would take time because English is not his first language but he studied German and got bored with it. Right now, he is trying to absorb everything and go with the flow. And yes, create music.
1. What’s the history behind the formation of Healinfect?
Originally, the band was called Forthright Scream. This formation was broken after three years. Then the Healinfect was created by Alex, Bence and me. Later, Balázs joined to us.
2. Why did you choose the band name Healinfect?
Actually, It was Alex’s idea. We wanted a name that has no meaning in itself, but it sounds good and has something to say. Healing and infection. Both are true of all music. Ability to infect and heal at the same time
3. How many of you are in the band and what instruments each one performs?
There are four members as of the moment. We need a bass guitarist and a solo guitarist. Apart from this, we are recording songs in the studio. Alex Mihályfi-Tóth is the drummer and our designer.
Bence Molnár plays on the keyboard and he is more of a “studio man” Balázs Bíró is the guitarist.
I am the singer and the composer. But we can all play instruments that are used by the band.
4. How do you describe the music of Healinfect?
T hat’s good question. Our core of style is Metalcore with hard and complex guitar themes, tuneful refrains, screams and vocals, but we like lots of styles, so we will play other kinds of music too.
5. Where can listeners go to listen to your music in the internet?(website:facebook,youtube channel,soundcloud etc)
We have the official site: www.healinfect.com, we are on facebook, youtube, twitter, and G+.
The recordings are still ongoing, they are not downloadable audio yet. But I have a solo project that you can to listen on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/user/KorienFS/videos
6. What is the sequence when you start writing music?
It’s spontaneous. It has no sequence. It just comes. When I have the urge to create, I just go with it. It is something that comes out like it’s a natural body function like shedding tears or sweat. Sometimes I put my own feelings into music, sometimes it is to fill that space or emptiness inside.
7. How’s the general music scene in Hungary?
Unspeakable. Sometimes I feel like people do not need music. Too many bands there. Talented and untalented, all the same. Unsupported. And I am not even talking about the underground styles.
8. What are the bands/musicians that influenced you.
There are so many. I cannot list them all, but will mention a few in Rock/Metal.
All That Remains, As I Lay Dying, Caliban, Demon Hunter, Threat Signal, Trivium, War of Ages, Desturbed, Hammerfall, Sonata Arctica, Sick Puppies, Three Days Grace, Two steps from hell, etc… but many others too are mixed.
9. What are the top 10 albums you are listening to these days.
I have 4 GB music in my phone. It’s mixed, soundtracks, electronic music, rock, metal..
I listen to them, and I change but Baxter, I can recommend this music, and you will like it.
Hey that’s a beautiful tune! Ok. Where can people buy and download your music?
You can download it from youtube. But I will make a compilation when there are many.
So follow me on Facebook, Youtube and G+
