SnowGlobe: 21 questions with Archnemesis

Posted in Local Culture | December 17, 2012 | By Tahoe South

SnowGlobe Music Festival is returning to Tahoe South for its second year and it’s not too late to join in on the fun. Three day passes and single day tickets are still on sale.

THE 21 DAYS of SNOWGLOBE: Counting down to all things involving the fest, including insider tips, band interviews, event coverage and more! Day six of the 21 Days of SnowGlobe brings you:

21 QUESTIONS WITH CURT HEINY of ARCHNEMESIS

Archnemesis is the self-described “musical brainchild” of Justin Aubuchon and Curt Heiny. Taking their cues and samples from a variety of sources, including early 20s blues, jazz and 70s soul, Archnemesis is rebranding the feel and sound of electronic music into something organic, new and totally unexpected. Aubuchon, classically trained in piano, and Heiny, trained in cello and bass, met in Charleston, SC and combined their musical backgrounds with a love of electronic music to form the duo that they are today. The boys believe that music should be readily available and their two EPS and new album Every Man for Himself are available for free download at their website. Big thanks to Heiny, who took the time out of his day to answer 21 Questions for the 21 Days of SnowGlobe.

What’s your greatest accomplishment of 2012?

John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, Dr. Dre, Biggie, Paul Simon, Pink Floyd, and on and on and on…

Camp Bisco Late Night this year – 10,000 people raging!

Most mortifying moment onstage?

When a power strip literally exploded under our table and knocked the whole PA in the theatre out.

Food you can’t live without:

Pizza, salads, anything from The Kickin’ Chicken or Papa’s and beer!

Vodka/tonic or chardonnay. Depends on the mood.

Fill in the black: iTunes music is easily accessible and fun to listen to.

Intelligence, motivation, creativity, self-confidence, humor, the ability to be a smart ass.

Invisibility.

Act that you are most looking forward to seeing at SnowGlobe?

There are too many amazing acts and too many of them are friends to single out just one but I’m sure Wiz, Chromeo, Madeon, Break Science and a bunch of others are going to kill it! We’re also looking forward to seeing all our crazy fans! They’re the greatest fans anyone could ask for! We love them!

Forward Always. Curt.
