Cosmo made a mix at midnight
Not all twins have telepathic powers. At least Cosmo and Patrick, of Sydney duo Cosmos Midnight don’t. They do however, synchronise in making sweet music on their computers. They think it’s pretty boring how they make music, but listening to it is most certainly not boring. We had a chat and they told me that all they really want to do is to relax and for someone to organise a gig with their best mates.
I read that your name was born because Cosmo, you made a remix at midnight one time, and so it just stuck. Is that all there is to that story?
Yup, you pretty much nailed it right there.
Do you work during the waking hours too? Double lives with day jobs?
Fortunately not, we mostly just bum around and go to uni for four hours a week. It's pretty ideal for writing music.
You’re twins; do you have any weird telepathic powers?
We've been asked this one so much. We kinda do, but no more than anyone who knows someone really well.
Can you tell me about your creative process? How does making music on computers work?
There are a lot of weird perceptions people have about writing music on computers. If your musically trained it comes a lot easier. But if you're a bit washy with all the theory you're usually just clicking a mouse for hours on end. There's nothing fun in watching someone make a tune.
Do you have an ultimate goal you’d like to kick as Cosmo’s Midnight?
Co-writing and producing beats for singers and bands. Complete creative freedom.
You’ve been playing some sweet festivals this summer which is pretty cool. If you could share the stage with anyone, who would it be and why?
It might sound cheesy but we really want to have a show with just our mates Waveracer, Basenji and Polographia, make it happen someone.
What else do you have planned for 2014?
Making fresh tunes, remixes and hopefully writing some beats for cool people. Touring and relaxing.
Thank you and Goodnight ...
