The folks over at The Juke got Chrome Canyon to edit the Halloween Theme, published along with an interview.
The Juke: You just got signed to Stones Throw, presume you’re putting mostly gold bullion in those trick-or-treat buckets?
Morgan Z of Chrome Canyon: Ha! I wish. I couldn’t imagine a better label to have been interested in me. Stones Throw is an absolute dream – but it doesn’t matter who you sign with these days, you’re not going to have instant gold bullion. I’m not hurting though. I’ve got a great studio and that’s about all you can ask for when you’re a nerd like me.
What’s the scariest thing that’s ever happened to you?
When I was little, my dad took me rock climbing up in the canyon behind our house. There was a cliff that we started climbing (I was probably 5 or 6). When we got almost up to the top there was a rock wall that we still had to go up, and below it was about a 150 foot drop – which when you’re 5 might as well be a mile. I lost it, it was terrifying. My dad had to carry me the rest of the way on his back like a monkey… haha! I don’t think I’ve ever felt so panicky! We made it though…
What’s the most ghoulish key to write a song in?
Eb Minor is ghoulish for sure. And the tritone from Eb is A which makes for a pretty creepy set of changes. Throw in some diminished scales and you’re on your way!
