Having been involved in projects The Acid and Howling, plus released plenty of singles, it's slightly surprising RY X is only just released his debut album, Dawn. Here's five questions with the Australian singer-songwriter.
WHO would play you in the film of your life? My life is barely seeding in some ways, so I think I would need some more time to create a world that someone else could play on screen with a sense of lineage and depth. For right now, my heart goes into making more moments worthy of the tale someone might tell.
WHAT are you currently working on? So much! I just finished a series of shows in NYC as part of Tribeca film festival with an installation based art film on anti nuclear ideas. I am making the world around this RY X album... the videos, the live shows and experiences, the palette of it all. It really is a lot of work to continue the threads, and have it relate across sonics, aesthetics, experiences etc. I am about to begin tours across Europe and the US, plus I'll be making more music with The Acid and Howling too.
WHY do you do that thing you do? Following the heart is a ever growing process. It evolves, changes, and continues to inspire new makings and paths to run. Once that road has been opened both internally and externally in terms of sharing your work with others, it becomes hard to do anything else.
WHERE do you see yourself in ten years? In balance of creating art with being connected to the sea and the land around me. Playing special shows around the world with the intent of those being really sacred events, whilst creating the space to really be present and surf and be with the ones I love sharing some magic experiences, something thats been hard to balance thus far!
WHEN will there be a harvest for the world? I think the world is ripe and blossoming all the time. And perhaps better than a singular harvest is the idea of us growing and helping it bear fruits of all beauty for us to share in a more sustainable way.
