Madeon Reddit AMA
Garagebasswobble: Do you think you could explain a little more about what some other themes and inspirations went into this album?
impyreane: i wanted to ask about heavy with hoping !! that song really really stuck out to me and im fully in love with it. how did that song come together and how was working with audra mae?
feastandexist: Three questions for ya: 3 years ago you tweeted this. What was ‘THAT song’? What made you decide this was going to be an ‘artist’ album instead of a ‘producer’ album? How involved was Porter Robinson in the feedback process? Did he contribute to any of the songs in some way?
Circa923: GF is brilliant, thanks for the tunes 🙂 One of my initial observations was how much the album feels “live” already, and almost like it’s a rock album from the future based on some of the instrumentation and production choices. Was there a focus you can share with us on your vision for the instrumentation and production?
somecat225: Hello!! How long ago did you start planning the visuals for GFL, and how did you choose them?
OfficialJeremyXY: What was the song that took you the longest to write? Who were the kids in the choir you recorded? Was there a daft punk influence on the song Miracle?
Miles5x5: Are there any artists that you’ve worked with over time that you’ve enjoyed the most? What’s your favorite collab song?
