INTERVIEW: SoundLava Interview With “PT from Psychedelic band BeOmega on their new album Kalki- Return of the Birdman“
BeOmega is the creation of frontman PT, known for his scientific concepts on sound and light. Based in UK, one of the many unique things about BeOmega is that they play in crop circles around Avebury every year. “Kalki- Return of the Birdman” is BeOmega’s second album and introduces eleven songs that explode with heavy psychedelic guitar and a powerful prophetic message. BeOmega originally began as a three piece but now incorporate a large group of interchangeable players. BeOmega is only a small offshoot of PT’s massive musical repertoire. His sound experiments are featured on different channels where he also explores vintage amplifiers and sound responses from nature.
Q. Is there a special meaning behind the name BeOmega and where are you from?
A. BeOmega basically means “Be ready for the Omega times, which means the culmination time. It means be ready for that, because that’s what’s happening right now.”
Not from earth.
Q. What is the title album track Return of the Birdman about?
A. The lyrics are quite self apparent. People can just listen to the song and listen to the lyrics. They are not hidden cryptic lyrics or anything like that. It’s apparent, it’s not a hidden meaning song.
Q. What got you into music and how long have you been doing it?
A. It’s just people hear sounds, they get into sound. Everybody hears sounds from a very early age.
Q. Can you tell us about your new album? What’s the story behind it?
A. The album is the story. There’s no story behind it. The album has a story and one can follow it. People can refer back to the first album. The new album is the follow up to that. The first is album is a warning and the second album is what is going to happen. It’s basically a statement of the present.
Q. How would you describe your approach to music and this album?
A. Albums are just like some messages to sounds, sounds which communicate that message. Sounds help highlight the message.
Q. Who are your biggest musical influences?
A. Anything, whatever I’ve heard from the time I was small. Everything is an influence. You’re hearing millions of things since when you were small. And there are some things which are not of this world, which are nothing to do with this world or the auditory things of this world.
Q. What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?
A. Don’t be one, that’s all. There’s no time for any of that. My advice to musicians is they should work on themselves first.
Q. If you have one message to give to your fans, what would it be?
A. The album itself is the message. It’s a very clear message. It’s nothing cryptic.
Q. What’s next for you? Are there any upcoming projects?
A. There’s always lots of things coming up on You Tube and Bandcamp. We’re always putting out new sounds. There’s Game of Tones Channel which features a lot of vintage gear and Lotus Ocean Channel which features a lot of Plays in nature, so some sounds are always happening. It’s not just the albums.
