To know myself and be able to create, to live and understand the currents that life throws at you.

Your idea of misery ::
white picket fences and deskjobs. not being able to feel fresh automn winds. avoiding nostalgia and melodrama.

If not yourself, who would you be ::
a dream.

Where would you like to live ::
I've always been drawn to either immense metropoles like tokyo where there seems to be a real value to individuality, or places like norway or finland; there's something attractive in their lifestyle, can't put the finger on it ;)

Your favourite colour and flower ::
i'm a graphic designer so i can't really have a favorite color, but these days, mostly browns and pale blues, or bright blues and purples.
Flowers i just love flowers, i guess i can't say i don't love camomiles hehe ( camomillemusic shameless plug ) but orchids and cherry blossoms and lotus and simple flowers like lilas ( english ? ) or margerites.

Your favourite prose authors ::
Jorge Luis Borgez, Alessandro barricho,

Your favourite poets ::
i've been raised on french and american rap music, so i must say that's where i get all my poetry from.

Your favourite heroes in fiction ::
i'm a huuuge comic book fan, but to single out a true hero i can't really pinpoint. I mean it might be cliché but Superman is all i ever wanted to be ;)

Your favourite painters and composers ::
Mark Rothko, his landscapes are so dynamic and real and at the same time there's an impenetrable distance to them.

on a professional standpoint, Todd McFarlane started years ago to draw a character and now those simple drawings became a huge multi media empire.
Somehow it tells me that i can do whatever i want if i have enough drive.
And in a place where there are no heroes ( quebec, Canada ), we all look towards our hockey team, the montreal Canadiens. The sport has a much more socio-political meaning here than anything in the past 100 years.

What character(s) in history do you most dislike ::
George Washington, the entire Bourbon family across time, the christian church and their popes, alexander the great.

Your pet aversion ::

The reform which you most estimate ::
I'm not a very political person, but here in quebec, we're in dire need of an educational reform, our people are underqualified and overeducated.

How I would like to die ::
Falling from someplace real high to have enough time to feel like i'm flying.

What is your present state of mind ::
Nostalgic, melodramatic, as usual :) and lazy beyond anything the human race as ever seen hehe.

ALEX CORTEX



Your favourite virtue ::
see next question.

Your favourite qualities in a man or woman::
sincerity, loyalty, humor, authenticity, straightforwardness, discipline, reliability, dedication.

Your favourite occupation ::
any occupation i myself chose to do.

Your idea of happiness ::
being healthy, being sheltered.

Your idea of misery ::
severe illness, chronic pains, being exposed to war, homelessness.

If not yourself, who would you be ::
someone else?

Where would you like to live ::
i like quiet places, in or close to nature.

Your favourite colour and flower ::
i like all colors of nature. flowers i like in general, but where they grow, rather than in a vase.

Your favourite prose authors ::
faulkner, unamuno. but then there is an endless list of authors i appreciate very much for maybe just one or a few books (dramatists and graphic novelists included). in general i'd say, i'm working myself through the "classics", from the middle-ages to the end of the 20th century, rather than reading recent publications.

Your favourite poets ::
always changing. pedro salinas is a definite favorite. at the moment i read wallace stevens, william carlos williams, robert frost and sylvia plath. but then it's the same here as with prose authors: there are many more interesting ones. often i like just a couple of their poems.

Your favourite heroes or heroines in fiction ::
going more for the anti-hero. complex and contradictory characters with a dark side seem to be the more interesting ones, especially on revision.

Your favourite painters and composers ::
painters: bonnard, bosch, cezanne, gauguin, kandinsky, klee, klimt, monet, renoir, van gogh, vuillard. and again, there are many more interesting ones. i go for a special atmosphere i can't really put into words.

composers: impossible to name just a few. there are hundreds of names and i discover new ones to me all the time... and again, often it's just one work, one song, or one album by one artist that appeals to me, but which completely changed my way of listening to or making music.

movie directors aren't asked for? in my opinion they combine properties of prose authors, poets, painters and composers. movie is an extremely important medium for me. lynch, kubrick, fellini, tati, tarkovsky, billy wilder, ingmar bergman, ...

Your favourite heroes or heroines in real life ::
couldn't really tell. i don't look much at others, rather try to be me.

What character(s) in history do you most dislike ::
there are the obvious ones i have no sympathy for. but then history is full of misguided individuals, so why use precious energy to start dropping those names.

Your favourite food and drink ::
i like fresh and healthy food. i prefer fruits and vegetables. i enjoy cooking, as it can be as creative as making music. as for drinks: water, fresh juices, yerba mate, espresso, and a tasty regional beer once in a while.

Your favourite names ::
a name is a mere shell.

Your pet aversion ::
i don't have any pets.

The reform which you most estimate ::
the individual in a life-long reform toward the better.

The gift of the nature which I would like to have ::
to be artistically more versatile, bold, and direct.

How I would like to die ::
aware, concentrated, happy

What is your present state of mind ::
"life is a state of mind" ('chauncey gardiner')

For what fault have you most toleration ::
for those which are no result of inconsiderateness.

Your favourite motto ::
i don't have a motto. i really can't put my life into just one phrase.

"I currently live in Glasgow, at the moment figuring
out life, music and relationships. It's interesting
for sure. I have been making experimental music on
whatever equipment was available to me since the late
eighties and Dissolved is an on going outlet for that
music, releasing to the net since 1999. Just now I
crave a pet salamander and a digital SLR and I enjoy
seeking out unheard musical treasure on the net, most
of it far better than published output."
