FRANX on his new EP
by Jade Wood
Franco Schoeman, bassist for the much-loved South African band, Isochronous, is on a one-man mission. He takes all that he has learned over the years and decorates his music resume with a solo venture – FRANX. Today a 5-track EP found its way into existence, and the man who manufactured it, will tell you about it below. Ladies and gents… we give you FRANX:
Embracing the challenge of composing and performing absolutely alone, after working in bands for so many years, has spawned an immensely interesting sound. Franx, is my childhood nickname and so it reminds me of my inner child. This compilation of 5 compositions is titled From Form. The title refers to the form I had taken during my academic studies and band co-operations. The MMus is now finished and the Franx (solo act) has taken priority in my heart. Each of the songs were created from an idea conceived during studies or rehearsals (in other projects).
Elated by the freedom of playing the bass guitar and singing, exposed 100%, is why the title implies that the form is no longer being taken. There is nothing else to provide foliage around the instrument and voice which created the music. All sounds are provided by the two elements and the simplicity is palpable.
