I ended up releasing a version that was taken from old mixes What does your typical writing process look like? I stopped using it out of respect for Sylvia Plath’s memory, but once music gets past the internet and onto computers there is no possibility of a rebrand, really. I don’t know when or how I’m going to release [those] yet, but hopefully something new will materialize sooner or later. There will also be a vinyl reissue of Melanchole in the near future, so there’s something to keep an eye peeled for.

Do you remember when you realized that album gained a following on the internet?
What would you say is the biggest challenge you’ve had to overcome as a musician? Maybe I would say shortwave radio. What does your typical writing process look like? Why is it that Salvia Palth was only a single-album project? I wrote this album pretty much entirely for those out-of-town friends, and soon after moved for my last year of high school. It’s a tangled mess of multiple independent distribution systems, all [of which are] antiquated and designed for a world that is not globalized in the sense that it is now.
The album is essentially a solo album, with my good friend Ike Zwanikken playing drums on a few tracks, so in my view there is little to differentiate it from the rest of my discography except a few key points: Unknown October 29, salcia 9: I stopped using it out of respect for Sylvia Plath’s memory, but once music gets past the internet and onto computers there is no possibility of a rebrand, really.
I try to stay out of all that or do what I can myself. I don’t have any hate paltg this, but as someone who has lived in New Zealand pwlth entire life, the idea palrh pretty amusing. By the time I had started writing this album my year had reduced to around six people, and I only really had one or two close friends out of town. There will also be palht vinyl reissue of Melanchole in the near future, so there’s something to keep an eye peeled for.
Especially in non-Western countries, this seems to be an issue.
Sitting Down With Daniel Johann (Formerly Known as Salvia Palth)
I had just started to use a new [recording] program and did not understand a path thing about mixing music, salcia the mix is raw and prominently features digital distortion in a way that would be both difficult and foolish to recreate. I have generally kept to the idea that a song is only good to listen to if it is fun for me to play, which generally means dividing the songs into distinct segments.
Functionality comes second in my opinion, with musical texture being the true driving force behind recorded music. What advice do you have for new musicians?
This is essentially what the album is about to me. I just listen paalth whatever I can get my hands on. If you could collaborate or tour with any artist who would you chose?
When I say paltj their way to the top” I guess I’m joking for my own sake a little, because this is a perfectly acceptable way to become a popular independent musician. How did you react to your “success”?
The best part is having no one in your business, and the worst part is how the entire musical landscape is full of hacks who paid their way to the top. What meaning do those songs have in comparison to your other works?
My advice would be to be less trusting and to take control of digital distribution very early [on]. The only way it seems you can make money in independent music savia days while still staying truly independent is by chance. It costs very little to get your music on Spotify and Apple Music these days independently. Do you have any upcoming projects you are working on? Interview by James Straub.
Sitting Down With Daniel Johann (Formerly Known as Salvia Palth) | Lithium Magazine
I have no idea. I grew up in a completely isolated area called Golden Bay at the top of the South Island of New Zealand and went to an area school with pupils for twelve out of thirteen years of my education. How do you think the system can better accommodate independent artists who have less connections and money?
What’s the best and worst part of being an independent artist? So finally being able to live salvix a degree of certainty that I paltb provide all the things I needed for myself was a big signifier that people were paying attention. I’ve got probably over a hundred [unreleased] tracks from the past four years.
