System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian recently revealed that he is planning to release his new EP “Elasticity” on March 19 and now it looks like he already has more new material in the works. Among his plans, are another new EP, two albums of cinematic/instrumental music, and more.
Tankian told Kerrang! the following:
“All I can tell you is that I have some material ready from last year because lockdown was a musician’s studio dream, in a way. You can get in and work because you don’t need to travel or anything else. I was able to create and finish a lot of music as well.”
“I was able to finish this EP, I’ve created another EP of a different genre of rock, more electronic and mellow and beautiful. That type of music. I’ve got two records of cinematic music, instrumental music of stuff that I’ve had that I created for the sake of it, and a 24-minute modern piano concerto that I’ll be releasing this year.”
He also added
“I know I’m scheduled to do some film scores, and they’re accompanying genres and flavors that I enjoy, because each film is different, each director wants a different thing. I’ll end up with a record — a soundtrack — of music that I’ve never done before that I could completely create: that’s an artist’s wet dream, right? Whatever comes to me from the universe in terms of the type of music, I have no idea…”
