:: INTERVIEW TO THE BLACK NOODLE PROJECT

PRESENT YOURSELVES OUR READERS...

Jeremie: Hi. We are The Black Noodle Project. We are coming from France and we try to play an emotional and melancholic flying music which, that's what we hope, makes you travel.

WHO ARE THE BLACK NOODLE PROJECT AS BAND MEMBERS?
Nowadays, we are 5 people in the band. Anthony Létévé, bass guitar. Matthieu Jaubert, Keyboards. Franck Girault, who is now playing drums after Arnaud Rousset left the band. Sebastien Bourdeix, acoustic guitars. And I, Jérémie Grima, singer and guitars, who founded The Black Noodle Project.

WHEN DID YOU HAVE FOUNDED THE BAND?
The Black Noodle Project is a 3 years old project. It begun with me alone for almost 2 years and became a real band when some good musicans joined me in this project. So there are two periods: a solo one and now, a band one.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THE VERY FIRST BEGINNING OF BAND...
As I said, I was alone and I was composing many titles with no real idea about where I was going. I was fed up with bands and all the problems we can meet when you're creating one. But some people begun to be interested in my work. Musea and I got in touch and they proposed me to distribute an album. So I created the band in order to have real musicians playing on it and in order to play gigs, which is of course impossible when you're alone.

WHAT'S ABOUT YOUR PREVIOUS RECORDING-EFFORTS?
I recorded a demo which was called "Dark Smiles...". It was a kind of patchwork of my favourite compositions in 2003. The style was influenced by metal music but you can find some titles we recorded again for "And Life Goes On..." on it. It's out of sale nowadays but you can listen to some tracks on our website www.theblacknoodleproject.com.

WHAT'S ABOUT YOUR FOLLOWING?
We are talking very seriously about a second album. We have many ideas and we already have a new song we're playing during our shows. The musicians and I are now a real team and I'm very proud to work with them. The sound of the band changed a little bit with the new guys but only in a good way. The spirit of it is so good that the next album will be a real team project. I'm off with my solo period, now. And I'm sure there will be a very good progression on our next effort.

THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTS IN YOUR HISTORY?
All the important facts were some meetings with people who decided me to go on working. Bertrand, from B-Smile Records, Laurent from a French label called Thundering Records, and Bernard from Musea for examples. They both increased my motivation to create a real band.

A QUICK INTRODUCING AT 'AND LIFE GOES ON...'?
"And Life Goes On... " was and is still again a great adventure. We tried to put in this album what we would like to hear if we would buy a new one. We did no compromises and we did it in total independency. We just tried to offer a peaceful travel in a melancholic music country. We did this album with our hearts and our sincerity.

SATISFIED TO HAVE SIGNED WITH MUSEA/BRENNUS?
Yes, Musea is handled by real passionate people. Everyone there is believing and living for their passion in music. They helped us very much for the album promotion and its diffusion. I don't think we could have done it without their help.

WHAT'S ABOUT THE PRODUCTION OF ALBUM?
The production has been handled by B-Smile Records. A French new Label founded by Betrand Pinsac and I. We recorded "And Life Goes On..." during the summer of 2004. We didn't have very much money so we had to work very hard to find some cheap but good solutions, like recording only during nights. Some French partners helped us and I must tell that I'm quite proud of the result. Of course, we can't compare it with a big major production but we did all that could be done by ourselves. And even if we will try to have better sound and conditions next time, I have absolutely no regrets.

ANY PARTICULAR CONCEPT CONCERNING THE ALBUM?
The only concept was to be honest with ourselves. Even if I would be dreaming about recording a real concept album, with recurrent themes and a real story, I think the band is too young for that. We will do it later, when we will be a little bit more experienced and if the god of music make us live until then. I have too much respect for concept albums like Pink Floyd's The Wall or the Who's Tommy to pretend to be able to do one now.

WHAT'S THE MOOD OF IT?
The mood of "And Life Goes On..." is melancholic without being too sad. It's not a cry at all. It would rather be a tear caressing your hear with peace.

I FEEL A STRONG PINK FLOYD BACKGROUND?
Every musician in the band listen to many different kind of music. I really enjoy working with open minded people. But it's a fact, everyone loves Pink Floyd very much. I literally grown with this band my parents loved. "Wish you were Here" is the first rock album I have ever heard. I guess it gave me my musical identity, even if we ever try not to make our music look like some band or another and try to do what we feel.

THE MOST SALIENT ASPECTS OF YOUR NEW ALBUM?
I'm very proud when people tell me that you are discovering different sounds and emotions every time you listen to "And Life Goes On..." . I love so much the albums you just can listen for years, always discovering it again and again. We drove our music in this way and I'm sure that if you like it, you will like it even much better when you will have listened to it many times.

WHAT'S ABOUT THE FEEDBACK?
We are very happy for the feedback is very good yet. We had many reviews in many countries and everyone seems to be agree with saying it's good. It gives us even more motivation to do even better with our second one.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR SOUND?
The most important thing in music, according to me : emotions. I think sometimes that when we're playing or recording songs, we create a link from a heart to another. True emotions are the most precious present you can give to people, especially when their core is a peace and harmony desire.

TOURING PLANS?
We are often doing some shows in France especially but we definitely want to go in foreign countries as soon as we will be able to do it.

YOUR LIFE'S PHILOSOPHY?
It's a huge question but my father always told me that you shall better fail something rather than regretting not having tried it. I totally agree with it and I would complete this with my own point of view: if you're trying something, always keep fighting until you become proud of it, especially if you bring peace with it.

THE FUTURE OF THE BAND?
We have some shows until june. We will have a two months break after that and will work on our next album from September. I hope we will be able to begin the recording in January 2006. We will also certainly have a French tour in November. But if possible, we will also try to come in Europe to promote The Black Noodle Project.

ANY LAST REMARKS?
Thanks to the Italian people for having read this interview. My grandmother was Italian. I think she would have been proud if she had knew that a piece of our music came back in her lands. See you.
