PAMM Third Thursdays: Poplife Social: Q+A with Hieroglyphic Being

Hieroglyphic Being

Rhythm Foundation is taking over for an electronic edition of PAMM’s Poplife Social on Thursday, October 19, featuring Chicago-based artist Hieroglyphic Being. The experimental electronic sound composer will blend his eclectic influences of deep house, Afrofuturism, avant-jazz, EBM, and international soundscapes for a night of electric artistry on the terrace. Be sure to check out Hieroglyphic Being’s latest release, “The Language of Strings Vol 5,” before the show here.

We caught up with the producer and chatted about his inspirations, creative process, and what Miami can expect from his show at PAMM.

PAMM: What inspires you at this moment or in this period of your career/life?
Hieroglyphic Being: To be of service to humankind and heal and elevate society through my creative endeavors.

What tends to be your starting point when it comes to creating a song?
Life experiences or influences from other creatives.

Has your creative process changed a lot over the years?
Yes. It changes from growing older and being more knowledgeable about the world around us.

What have you been listening to lately?
A lot of jazz, industrial music, and fusion.

You’ll be taking over our terrace overlooking Biscayne Bay. Can you spill some details on what you have cooking up for your set at PAMM’s Poplife Social?
Well, I guess I will perform live my own music that I have created over the years that’s been released on Soul Jazz Records and Ninja Tune, and then play other artist’s music that I am into at the moment.

What can fans expect from Hieroglyphic Being in the near future?
Well at the moment, releasing music by other artists locally from Chicago and keeping my learning center viable and functional for others to come learn and grow at Chicago Phonic.
