Interview for MegaPodcast.RU (July 2021)

1
Lena is asked how difficult it is to compose a new song, she explains that, a song is a reflection of the artist's emotional state of mind and tells the creative process through which she originated the songs on the album This is who I am. when he lived in Los Angeles, with the band members. Lena describes it as a spontaneous process: they would gather in the recording room, play different instruments and then, when it came time to create the lyrics, they wondered what theme they wanted to cover in the song, what story they wanted to tell and so on, to such a Artistic creative process was also attended by ex-husband Sash and Lena describes it as the stage she likes most when creating an album. . If, on the other hand, a song is proposed to Lena as a proposal, she listens carefully from start to finish.
2
Lena very rarely listens to her songs again if not to create an arrangement or when obviously she sings them during concerts, on the contrary her son often asks her to let him listen to the songs of her album and this is how she happens to listen to them again but this still does not. irritates at all .. Lena listens to old songs, or those broadcast on the radio, sometimes she listens to classical or jazz music and some singers of the new generation.
3
The speaker asks Lena who wrote the songs on the Mono album. Lena reiterates that she doesn't have much inspiration when it comes to writing songs in Russian rather than English, some songs have been proposed to her, others instead have been written by some Ukrainian authors who have collaborated: for Lena it was very important to be able to meet again. in each song so that she could convey the message. She lena you say you have great esteem for the creativity of Ukrainian authors and their way of writing lyrics; several authors, mostly Ukrainian, participated.
4
Is it important to have a musical education and to know how to write your own lyrics or can you sing songs whose lyrics are written by others?
According to Lena it depends on the will of the artist himself; choosing whether or not to sing only the songs written by others, whether to participate or not, if he is able to sing them, following a musical training is also a choice of the artist himself, in Lena's opinion it is a subjective but still advantageous decision .
5
Was academic (musical) knowledge imparted in the Neposedy school? Lena says that academic-level knowledge was not imparted in this regard; she studied fortepiano but never studied singing for example, while the Neposedy band that performed at events and chorused the artists had to have good singing skills and a good ear and was considered a professional ensemble. Solfeggio was the subject in which Lena excelled although she was not her favorite of hers but she wrote the voice dictation very well without any difficulty as she believes she has good hearing. The subject she hated the most was music literature, she jokingly says that if she asked her some questions on the subject she would remember absolutely nothing. As a child, Lena found that subject that spoke of the history of music and the composers who made history very boring. On the contrary, she loves Russian literature very much, a work that she really likes is War and Peace by Tolstoy which she reread at the age of 35, a literary work that if she understood and loved as an adult she certainly could not have loved it. and understand it as a child as it is a complex book. They are novels that shape her person and her literary tastes, but according to her, Lena, they can be appreciated only when she is able to understand their profound meaning.
6
Speaking of new generation music, Lena mentions MiyaGi And Andy Panda, she doesn't usually listen to this duo but she recognizes that they are a very listened to band. According to Lena, she herself tends to prefer songs from the past precisely because they belong to her generation, to what she is used to listening to.
7
In the composition of a musical text, Lena does not like to follow the rule that there must be a sequence in which stanzas and choruses alternate according to a linear sequence, instead she likes to follow her own personal order enriched by the sound of the arrangement and instruments. music especially in concert.
8
When she is asked if she ever listens to the old songs she sang in the band Tatu, Lena gladly tells that she sings them with fans at every concert and that they are also heard on spotify and Apple music.
9
The speaker mentions a very famous Dutch radio and says he was surprised when All The things she said was broadcast in the "gold" category. Lena says she is not at all surprised as their songs have been broadcast on radios all over the world, what struck the speaker was hearing a Russian song, dated as All the things she said on a very famous foreign radio. , exactly one year ago. He asks Lena which is the most unlikely country where she has heard their songs, a month she and Yulia played about 30 concerts so they were constantly traveling from one country to another.
10
What projects does Lena have besides music? In addition to musical projects, her priority is little Sasha, who has just turned 7 years old to whom Lena dedicates all her time when she is not working, she claims laughing that being a mother is the most difficult profession that you can do.
11
Profit: according to Lena, an artist who does his job well and has an audience that listens to him with interest, this, from a financial point of view, is certainly also a source of income.
The sale of the records of the past (before digital) perhaps made things better from this point of view; concerts perhaps give a greater source of income than streaming music. Lena begs the viewers not to download the "pirate music" but to buy it on the appropriate platforms (apple music for example)
10
Will apps like spotify permanently replace radios?
According to Lena it is not said: for example, people today still attend the theater, the radio can still be appreciated as you have the opportunity to listen to (learn about) the musical novelties proposed by the radio station that maybe we do not have in the playlist at least. that we do not search for them ourselves through the search engine. However, the radio can have some disadvantages, for example the personal factor: Lena mentions that some radio stations refused to broadcast Ya Soshla S uma claiming that it did not fit their format and musical preferences (based on their listeners) as well as many channels refused to broadcast the video, except MTV thanks to a person who liked it and that was the "springboard to success" where Lena and Yulia also saw their video clip broadcast on TV for the first time.
11
Does the fact that an artist's songs are played on the radio can lead him to fame more easily? Lena replies: partly yes but it is not on what the success of a successful musical career is based (she also mentions the predominant role of youtube in transmitting songs).

Thank you for the transcription!! I watched the interview before reading it and I'm glad to find out I understood more or less everything.

I always get all nostalgic when any of them mention about YSSU being aired on the radio and on MTV for the first time
