Korn guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer recently revealed plans to collaborate on a new musical venture with fashion designer and musician Michèle Lamy.
In an interview with DizzyShaffer and Lamy (a member of LAVASCAR) recently talked about meeting and their upcoming plans to record music together.
The two met where every good story begins – the Beverly Hills hotel parking lot. Shaffer was “really starstruck” by Lamy. At a loss for words, the only thing he could think of saying to her was “LAVASCAR!”
Their meeting was written in the stars – that, or manifested by Shaffer’s wife. While listening to LAVASCAR together, his wife said, “I can see you and her playing something… I’m just going to put it out into the universe.”
“I thought we should do something together because I felt this instant synergy and frequency,” Shaffer said. “These frequencies, they come together and when the sound frequencies are tuned to certain different pitches, they form these patterns. Very seamless unique patterns. And I feel like that’s kind of what happened with us. Our frequencies sort of align. They’re going to form something, something creative and unique and in the form of music.”
Lamy replied, “Yes, and in my head I had the idea that it could be electronic. And it will be organic. When I listen to what you’ve already done, I hear that it’s not one thing. That’s all. It’s very melodic and very sexy. It’s something you can listen to anywhere.
It’s not yet known when the new project will debut, but if the respect these musicians display for each other is any indication, their interwoven creative influences are going to be prominent.
