Short Biography - Asy9 // Eve Alacu
In 1997 she joined the band Zeightguist. It was in this band that she wrote the song “Dear Mother” which would eventually become an Asy9 track. Unfortunately, Zeightguist was doomed to a very short existence. Now Eve had to find a different outlet for her musical desires. Realizing she wasn’t getting very far with the bands she had worked with she set out to establish a solo career. In the year 2000 she went to work on the “Fury” CD. It was during this time that she created the name for her current project – Asy9.
“I didn’t want to stick with general alternative on ‘Fury’. I had originally planned ‘Fury’ to be a 3 CD set because I had so much material I had wanted to work on, but ended up getting cut off short due to the ‘Drunk On Dreams Of Shadows and Darkness’ CD. So, in the end, ‘Fury’ was just one CD of hardcore electronica and dance instrumentals.”
She teamed up with producer Brian Copeland at Aromatone Recording Studios in Tulsa, Oklahoma to work on a new track she titled “Hypoxtian”.
“I swore to myself during the making of ‘Hypoxtian’ that I wasn’t going to work on anymore music for quite some time. I was really frustrated with myself, simply because I couldn’t catch onto the feel of working inside of a recording studio very well. I wasn’t doing my best, but at the same time, I knew I couldn’t help it.”
After finishing “Hypoxtian” Brian posted it to the Soundclick.com website and the song rocketed to number fourteen in the industrial/electronica charts where it stayed for thirteen weeks. After seeing how well the song did on the website, and being prodded by Brian and her best friend, she went on to do a full album. She decided to produce the rest of the album entirely by herself but still used the facilities provided at Aromatone Studios.
“For over a year, I was left in a recording studio by myself trying to figure out what button did what, which knob tweaked what, which program worked with which plug-in, which in was out, which out was in, what was balanced, what wasn’t balanced, why that light blinked, why that light didn’t blink, and on and on and on. In one year, I think I sucked up about three years worth of audio engineering school thanks to Brian (and I think I sucked up about seven billion pots of coffee on my own that year as well).”
In the end “Drunk On Dreams Of Shadows and Darkness” was the result.
“Because people pushed me and told me I could do it. Because people helped me out along the way and taught me things. Because of everyone’s support, I was able to piece together an album that I am truly happy with. I hope everyone else will like it as well.”
