INTERVIEW WITH GUILLERMO CORONEL
(The guy behind EBM Lovers Magazine)
By Joel From "Cyberpunk Argentina"
- Firstly, Could you introduce yourself? And then could you tell me about your life and your work and all the Webzines when you have participated?
Well my life… I’m just a common argentine boy… my name is Guillermo Coronel as you can see, I’m 26 years old and I working in training job in my university when I´m attending the social communication and social work program. National University of La Matanza gives me the possibility to work as training in a part time job, to have the necessary time to study .so hard to get to degree in a nearby future.
I love music; music is my passion from my childhood. My dreams is sing my own song and I wish to so my own music, but it takes a lot of time… at least I’m studying to be a singer a is nice music school one hour by week in Buenos Aires City and I have a guitar, a keyboard and a some music software, well i try to make some noises but nothing seriously, in this moment music for me is like a therapy. Music makes me fly and transport me to another dimension; I mean music is my gateway to the pradise.
I have other hobbies, too, such as theatre (In fact I’m attending a workshop of creativity in theatre);reading, for example philosophy, literature and I love cine but music is the best for me.
Well I’m interest in the reality, not only I put my attention in arts. I’m aware to reality of my country so, in this year I´ve joined in a political sector of Argentina called ·”Pro” because I think these ideas are the change to this area need. Latin-Americans politicians are a shamed me, but I see a leader in Mauricio Macri, I mean I trust him… Any I see a positive future to my country despite of the current government and their madness.
And obviously as a volunteer I decided to spread the genre of music which I love. My computer and my internet home connection allows me write and express my opinion. Even I´ve worked in local web sites, when I started to write my first reviews, and I have collaborated in important international web magazines, in nowadays I’m happily writer volunteer in a site of Belgium.
Time to talk about my site: EBM LOVERS MAGAZINE is a solo project, made all for me when the main idea is spread EBM, Synth wave music, because there’s no many sites about these kind of music in Argentina, and in Spanish.
Fortunately the musician in the world help me with my work, I have several interviews with a start of Synthpop.EBM and Futurepop musicians in the international scene. I’m so proud of it and to the fact to I work every day without intention to get any profit, I mean I work free to a cause, to a musical cause, and I’m so glad for I´ve got a nice feedback with the readers and in the last time some people said me to trust in my work as a journalist, so is so important for my career.
For this work in the sites and the repercussion, in my work some month ago I started my research about the music, the Synth music. I want to publish a book with all the material that I picked up in all this time.
And I hate the Beatles, and I don’t like soccer. Hahaahha.
- How do you see the scene in the world and in your country?
- How do you see the future of EBM Lovers Magazine?
And lastly, as I always say, my site couldn’t be the best site in the world, but there I poured much love and passion, two of most important things of the human existence.
