Atticus Oldman’s A.I (Automated Interview) is a series of predetermined questions designed to provide Steampunk Creatives with a starting point to tell their own stories!
Name: Commander Bob
Approx Location: Paris
Creative Occupation: Victor Sierra’s leader.
What are you working on at the moment?
Victor Sierra’s fourth album.
How did you get started on your creative journey?
What are the next steps on that journey?
Where do you hope the journey will take you?
To complete the necessary number of songs for Victor Sierra’s next album. We’d like to release it before being back to Steampunk World’s Fair 2018.
How did you first get into Steampunk and how has that influenced your work?
When Big Machine joined Victor Sierra, he told us about Steampunk. We had never heard of it before. So we googled it and everything seemed so familiar to us… The dystopia, the “uchronical” visions, the outfits ands contraptions, the mix of genres… The encounter of romance and technology. Victor Sierra has been a steampunk band from the beginning without us being actually aware. But I would like to mention that Dieselpunk does attract me, as well. That’s how we came to create the Airship Hydrogen Queen -of which I’m the Commander! It’s yesterday’s tomorrow.
What do you think the future of Steampunk is?
Steampunk is the place where no one ever dies. Then its future could be eternal? Time is such a relative matter.
What question should you be asked and what is your answer?
Q:When do you come back to perform in the UK?
A: The soonest the better! And as often as possible please.
