Elisapie: A Communication
Elisapie Isaac: Well, when I write for example in my language, I’m automatically addressing to the North…even more specifically my own little village where I was brought up. I feel like I want to say things and express in a way that will trigger something…emotional, questioning our lives, and (every) woman speaking her mind.
EI: I think that Inuit people are…(ready to be) part of the world, ready for change but still keep their culture (and) mix it with new ideas. I think that there is a lot of hope.
EI: I really believe that communication and radio was really a place for me to express my inner creativity, and I love that medium. And it has helped me to be a little more aware, especially when I have to be doing interviews and have a larger vision of my work than just the artiste point of view…
EI: Quitare accoustique, my iphone to record ideas, slowly trying to play piano.
FJF: -What is a piece of music you really like that you think will surprise readers?
EI: I don’t know, I tend to like everything…gospel music!
FJF: Now this is a question I have posed and discussed with may other musicians lately: hearing music in your head, so to speak. I have met some artists who tell me they can’t hear songs exactly in their memory, whereas I feel it is near impossible to never have a song running through my mind, all instrumentation included. What is your take on this?
EI: I have a very short term music memory, I make room for other sounds very fast, especially in the creative mode.
EI: I have to try to focus on my music and my sound…I may have a vibe follow me but not necessarily a song.
EI: Hopefully next year, working on new songs and new album should be out late 2012!
