Eat a Bag of Mix: Travis Doom

Friday, October 18th, 2013

Eat a Bag of Mix is the name of a feature here on life is noise where we get a DJ, musician, producer, industry figure or just someone with good taste in fucked-up and weird music to give us a mix of music that has influenced them, or tunes that are currently rocking their world.

This week, we’re eating a bag of mix with Travis Doom, self-described as follows:

Sometimes the inescapable becomes so inescapable you change everything around it until the inescapable becomes the escape. So it goes with the nom de plume/alter-ego for me. I often tell people I work in entertainment. It is what I try to do. I am a musician, a DJ, an event producer, party promoter, a life drawing model, a music-for-fashion producer, an alternative.

People call me all sorts of things… Mostly I love to share creativity that describes the conditions of my spirit. Adore the Genii. We’re all screaming out for those we can effortlessly orbit near. We’re stronger together. Every piece in this mixtape has gripped me in it’s own way, and I hope they get to you too.

I will continue the doomed path with… my current industrial/noise/spokenword project which aims : to physicality and liveliness to electronic music (read: punk, no fucking laptops) : to the centre sliver of the accessibility/meaningful/ego/noise-atonal venn diagram… and some music for other people, maybe a band, and a few special parties slated for the rest of this year.

So hopefully our systems merge/integrate. And what is escapable now? I am Travis Doom and I won’t write my biography in third-person. Go eat a bag of mix. xx
