The A Cappella Twinterview Project

by Florian Städtler, Vocal Blog

The interviews is a standard format for journalists and bloggers. If done well, an interview can give the reader an interesting perspective on the personality, life and works of the interviewee. However, very often interviews become a series of standard questions like “Where did this all start?”, “What makes you different from other vocal groups?” or “What are your future plans?” It’s not the fault of the artist if this kind of conversation is less interesting as the most simple article on the members and the history of the group.

So how about a new approach to the art of the interview? This first attempt to create something surprising and exciting is rather simple: The Twin Interview.

  • Rule No. 1: Choose two vocal groups that are either somehow very similar or very different
  • Rule No. 2: Send them the same 7 questions
  • Rule No. 3: Allow no more than 100 words for each answer
  • Rule No. 4: Present the answers in unusual ways and inspiring combinations
  • Rule No. 5: Edit the original post using comments on Vocal Blog, Facebook and Twitter

And here are the candidates – which I haven’t actually asked, please let me know who else you want in that new kind of Q&A via the comment section of this blog, or wherever you can find Vocal Blog on the web:

This will be fun. Let’s do it – looking forward to your suggestions!

By the way, I haven’t asked any of the above mentioned if they wanted to be part of the experiment. So thanks for spreading the news and posting your personal wishlist. Who can resist the pleading of a real fan?

My name is Florian Städtler, when I founded Vocal Blog in July 2009, I had NO IDEA where this would lead me to. Today the writing, the dialogue and the fantastic contributions make me a happy little blogger. If you want to join the blog party, join the Facebook group, fanpage and my Twitter account. Not to forget Acappellazone’s YouTube channel, which – with about 600 a cappella videos -  is slowly, but surely becoming a vocal music afficionado’s favourite place to hang out.
