I started with Jazz(-Rock), then turned my back on it, went close to techno, and started to integrate voice, literature, and spoken word.

Starting off as just Lump, he later had to change his name to Lump200, so he could identify as a different entity, although the name changed the core of the art hasn’t flinched, staying unique.

What is your stage name
Is there a story behind your stage name?
Yes, the project started as Lump only, but there was confusion as there was another Lump. Fabric (London) wanted to book me but they asked the other Lump. So I decided to tune my stage name. I like the idea that it sounds like kitchen gear. Could be a blender, couldn’t it?
Where do you find inspiration?
Almost anywhere: inside and outside myself, humans, their skills and thoughts, animals, plants, literature, music, of course, food, conversations, situations and constellations in general, art etc.
What was the role of music in the early years of your life?
To be honest: I loved marching music as a child. I started to play the recorder, clarinet was following, then guitar, saxophone, vocals, piano. My talent was fostered by some ambitious music and art teachers.
Are you from a musical or artistic family?
What was the first concert that you ever went to and who did you see perform?
I think it was Al Jarreau..
Describe your creative process.
I usually start with sessions. Recording some instruments, preparing them, processing them, with guests or without. Often a production starts chaotic, I build up, overload, throw out, and overload again before I start reducing, deciding what is really the core. I love concepts, too, and I love to break them.
Did your style evolve since the beginning of your career?
Oh yes, I am very zigzag. I started with Jazz(-Rock), then turned my back on it, went close to techno, and started to integrate voice, literature, and spoken word. A continuum is probably a pointed phrasing.
Who do you see as your main competitor?
Oh, music is not that much about competition to me. I am a friend of co-existence.
What are your interests outside of music?
How people live together, and how they organize themselves. Participation, human interaction and respect. Swimming.
If it wasn’t a music career, what would you be doing?
Some other basic thing. Cooking, for example.
Why did you choose this as the title of this project?
The title of the coming album is Isles of You. With a partner for code I am developing an integrative social audio app that fosters co-creation, crowd-composing and -texting and so on. I wish to open things up, to let you in, and you, and you and you..
What are your plans for the coming months?
I will finish the album, promote it, continue developing the web-app, adapt tracks for the app, start projects on it, and if there will be time left, I will think about live shows.
