We Care Because You Do: Moon Fear Moon

“You can understand my music in all sorts of dimensions and angles and languages, since I don’t have vocals on my tracks.  The possibilities of what emotions may arise while listening to my music are endless, and it is really up to the listener to make it what he or she wants it to be.  I like to give space for imagination, I’d rather open you up with my music to whatever you want to open yourself up to than to tell you what to feel or think.  I could never agree with that aspect of music … putting boundaries on a listener.”

-excerpt from “Interview with Moon Fear Moon”, 2003

During the same interview session we had with Malek, he mentioned one name we hadn’t heard in some time: Moon Fear Moon.  Another pioneer in the world of IDM and Electronica here, Moon Fear Moon (aka John Sobrepena) was an integral piece in the burgeoning scene during the late 1990s and early 2000s.  Above is an interview conducted by Vinci Roxas back in 2003, as MFM tells us more about his interests, influences, and memorable gigs.  We’d love to get a word with you again John, anytime you’re free.
