Getting banned on YouTube? - [10 Years Psy'Aviah ~ #musicvideos for our tracks from the very beginning. The first one we decided put on YouTube though was one that got#banned…: “Moments” featuring the talented #poet and spoken word artist , watch it at [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTir_SFms78 ]. Banning us quickly went over though, but in the meanwhile national media jumped on it, such as atv Antwerpse Televisie [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzE8BFdNj1U ],#GVA, #HLN, etc.. PS; We have a new track with Suzi Q 90% ready – it will appear on a future album of ours!
Experimentation is on our DNA! - [10 Years Psy'Aviah ~#experimentation is at the heart of our philosophy.. If I had to give one example, besides musical examples, it would be the#UrbanSharing-project we launched 2 years ago.. Simply put: “Take a brown envelope, or brown box, decorate it with words/colors/etc.. Embed a ‘gift’ (in this case ‘t was one of our cds) Place it in the middle of the city, and see what happens”.. Through the help of #fans and enthousiasts we managed to get those packaged not only in belgium, but also Netherlands, United States, Mexico, Sweden, Norway, United Kingdom, Germany, etc.. It was a nice experiment & adventure for us and for those who participated, and ofcourse for those who found or were staring at one – deciding to pick it up or not. We recieved e-mails & reactions from “lucky finders”, explaining what went through them, explaining how they found it, and eventually why they picked it up. Always ending with “thx for this gift”, because it’s rarely you get something trylu for free ofcourse… Over the course of the #experiment we interviewed some people, among of themPatrick Janssens (then mayor of antwerp), but also Ikrame Kastit, Vanessa Sue Smith, Bert Gabriels, Carlos Dyckmans, street interviews, and many more people.. Here’s a video playlist on youtube with all our videos bundled on the subject [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBs2fmGl3yk&list=PL06913B888D2B7E11&shuffle=681 ].
Bad luck? Try taking the best out of a situation gone wrong - [10 Years Psy'Aviah ~ #Iduna in Drachten(Netherlands), with Schwarzblut and NG-Pro, we had to replace our then lead singer and lead guitarists.. Luckily though we could count on Geert de Wilde of IC 434 for vocals, Ben Van de Cruys on guitars and Lis Van den Akker of Misery for female vocals.. Out of both collaborations grew a track/remix/cover version later on: “Tired”, but then performed by then now defunct Misery [ listen athttps://soundcloud.com/psyaviah/tired-misery-rendition?in=psyaviah%2Fsets%2Ffull-length-previews-from-2 ] and “Anger Mangement”, but then performed by IC 434 [ listen athttp://grooveshark.com/#!/search/song?q=Psy'Aviah+Anger+Management+(IC+434+Re-take) ]! So, it’s how you percieve bad planning & bad luck ;) – I thought it turned out just fine!
