Interview with GC Project

Hi! Tell me about your band and what kind of previous experience do you have as musicians?
Hi everyone. GC Project is my solo project, founded in 2014. The idea was make music that includes many genres, principally progressive, but also rock, fusion, metal, blues. In my previous experiences I played many kind of music and my background goes from jazz to blues, from pop to rock to metal; so, my intention Is not to create music with a single language, but write songs with different kinds of attitude and styles.

Why did you pick your band name? How did you form? Why did you decide to play the genre or genres you do?
The band name is simply the initials of my name.
Like before, my formation is the result of a various music background; I started to play on songs of Queen, Roxette and Metallica. After I discovered ELP, Genesis, Led Zeppelin, Dream Theater, Pantera, but also Alan Parson, Chick Corea, Miles Davis and many others bands and artists. So, my curiosity brought me to study this different styles of music. I didn’t decide the genres, it’s been all spontaneous.

What can you tell us about your latest record?
Two of a Kind is a concept about the human contradictions, the balanced chaos that rules the universe, the dualism between instinct and reason, love and peacefulness, egoism and madness, the will of change own life and the fear for the changes. The cover represents a genius and a magician (8th song), referred to the instinct and reason, the greatest dualism and contradiction of human race.

What the kind of album feedbacks are you waiting for?
I just hope people like it. That’s all!

Are you gonna to make some world tour in the future? Do you think this is available for everybody option to tour around the globe? What do you think band have to do to get such opportunity?
Yes, we are on work in order to make a tour in Europe. A tour around the globe wold be fantastic, but it costs a lot, maybe one day we’ll can do it, who knows…

Do you believe in heavy music scene without money?
If you wanna record an album, you have to pay, if you wanna release and promote it, you will have some expenses, the same if you wanna go on tour. I don’t think it’s possible make something without money.

What do you think about online music sharing? Do you ever give your music away for free? Why?
I prefer physical albums, I don’t like mp3s. I love to listen to music with a real audio system, not on phone or iPad; I like read the lyrics, watch the cover. However, times change and we have to accept it, so we know that we must promote music also via digital platforms, youtube, etc.
I never give my music away for free. If you call a plumber for a job, you will pay him for that; music, and more generally art, have to be payed, like others kind of job!

Who are your musical influences? Have you ever think your band could be so famous as your favorites?
The influences are so many: ELP, Planet X, Fates Warning, Dream Theater, Rush, Toto and many others.
I’d like, but I don’t think it’s possible for us to be famous like these bands… who knows… XD

Do you have a formal music education? Do you think it’s a Kind of important thing?
I started to play classic guitar at 7 years old, so I started to study classic music. For me it’s been very important that kind of musical education. I think music is also discipline, not playing just to make it. This kind of approach brought me to study very hard through the years.

How do you balance your music with other obligations – mate, children, job?
I don’t have children, so that’s not a problem. For the rest, I work 8 hours a day and I dedicate my time to music and my girlfriend. She is very patient and she loves what I do.

How do you handle mistakes during a performance? Or you can assure there are no any mistakes during your gigs? Do you get nervous before a performance or a competition?
I make little mistakes during the performances; I study many times in order to reduce the risks, but mistakes happen. If you study, you can manage them with easiness.
Before a performance I’m not nervous, I am always very excited.

What’s next? Thank you!
The next is third album, new musical experiences, new stuff to do.
Thank you very much guys!
