Q

Any Classical music/ composers influences?


Miracles of Modern Science responded on 04/18/2012
A

Debussy and Bartók were heavy influences on a few string figures on the album. Today we were talking about Beethoven op. 31 no. 3 in relation to the structure of a new song we're writing. But usually it's more subtle. We listen to everything we can get our hands on, and it all influences us whether consciously or not.

Q

You guys were awesome yesterday at the Drunken Unicorn! I'm looking forward to your next tour!

My question would now have to be... What do each of you enjoy most about life?


Miracles of Modern Science responded on 03/29/2012
A

Geoff: Flowers!

Josh: Eating vanilla heath bar crunch ice cream while watching a well scripted TV show (because TV is better than movies these days).

Tyler: Doing life with close friends who have a passion for growth and a relentless joy for experience and activity.

Kieran: Hammocks, mostly.

Evan: Animals of all sorts.


Q

Maybe TMI, but my boyfriend and I lost our virginities to your EP at 15 years old. Now, four years later, we're still together and finally seeing you play this Tuesday night. Thanks for being great.

Details!!

Just so you're warned, tonight's show's going to be a little weird: we're playing 2 songs as part of a mostly classical program. But please come say hello afterward – maybe we can hook you up (no pun intended) with tickets to our next one.

Q

any chance of me getting some mandolin tabs? would be great to learn some songs for mandolin that were not bluegrass etc.
Thanks MOMS!

I've got most of them tabbed out on my computer at home – I'll see about posting some when we're back from tour.

Q

Which artists most inspired your music?


Miracles of Modern Science responded on 03/19/2012
A

We each have our own quirky tastes in music, so our influences come from all over. Some favorites we share, though: Bowie, Talking Heads, Tears for Fears, the Third Eye Blind self-titled, late Talk Talk, Ennio Morricone.

Q

Do you think you guys will have any sort of merch soon!


Miracles of Modern Science responded on 03/19/2012
A

We do sell t-shirts and headbands (http://on.fb.me/FSoEXF) at our shows. We're getting some new designs and should have it for sale on our website pretty soon. Anything in particular you'd like to see?
