Interview Exchange For Indie Musicians And Their Fans Launches
Posted by: "soundsmusic"
Uncensored Interview officially announced its launch. The site is the first of its kind,
dedicated to giving independent musicians and their fans a voice
through an interactive interface. Via streaming video, Uncensored
Interview showcases interviews with indie bands across all genres.
Videos on Uncensored Interview are classified into several channels,
delivering content based on the user's preference; whether by genre or
by area of interest. Interviews take place in locations where the
artist feels most comfortable - a favorite bar, rehearsal space or
even a toilet seat. From here, artists speak in an unrestricted
environment, enabling their fans to get a voyeuristic glimpse into
their worlds. Uncensored Interview doesn't string together pieces of
the interview to create an enhanced image of the artists; but instead
provides raw, truthful moments as they happen.
"The truth is, indie music fans just don't have outlets like TV and
radio to access the indie musician world," said Marisa Bangash,
founder of Uncensored Interview. "Today, the internet is the place for
art, ideas and intimacy to be exchanged. Uncensored Interview is the
site for indie artists, fans and music aficionados to experience,
learn, express, unite, and debate."
Uncensored Interview provides a needed channel for bands to reach to
fans, express their feelings and share themselves beyond their music.
It is a forum where theplatonicband/fan relationship which thrives in
the indie music world is respected and allowed to grow.
Uncensored Interview recognizes that passive is out when it comes to
online behavior and encourages users to "talk back" to the bands and
share their views via video. The interviews captured highlight the
indie artist's opinions and ideas. Then a grassroots, non-linear video
conversation becomes the name of the game. The uncensored interviews
produced for the site and user-generated content known as "v-sponses"
create a forum for the two parties to interact on topics ranging from
global warming to sex with fans to the state of the music industry.
"With the major labels failing, airwaves filled with disposable music
and cookie cutter artists being pushed as the next big thing - fans
need a way to cut through the clutter," said Bangash. "Uncensored
Interview is a reference point for people to find the diamonds in the
Artists interviewed also talk about what they know best and why they
are recognized - their music. More than just commentary on their own
albums, bands converse about everything that affects their lives as
musicians, including touring, influences, the music industry, media
and challenges they face. Some of the content also serves as advice
for aspiring musicians.
Uncensored Interview's videos encompass broader social issues as well
since artists develop their work based on their experiences as
individuals. To capture what compels each artist and share it with
fans introduces a new way for the two parties to connect.
The Interview Process: Step by Step
Starts with a simple thought shared by the indie artists captured
and published by Uncensored Interview producers.
Videos featuring the indie artist are published online and are ready
Socially aware individuals, indie artists, fans, music aficionados
and the bands themselves interact by uploading their own videos in
response (the v-sponses) to the original band videos or to other
The end result - video conversations that are interactive,
intellectual, meaningful, ever-changing and uncensored.
