Interviewer asks about the tattoo on Jared's back and what an Orbis Epsilon is.

Jared: "It's not so much a logo. They are really designs that are called from a book called The Argus Apocraphex which has a lot of symbols and signs and icons. And yeah I have a recent addition on my back. My nineteenth tattoo of which only eight are visible."

JL: "A lot of people ask us how we came up with our name."
MW: "We've been doing some research on the internet and came across a thesis that was written by a former Harvard professor. He comments on the exponential growth of technology and the way it relates to us as humans. And in it he's basically stating that we literally are 30 seconds from Mars."
JL: "It really represented the sound of our music in a unique way."

On taiko drums:

"There is a vast variety of taiko drums that are used in Japan. Some have been based on drums imported from other cultures, and some have been developed natively. Some have tacked heads, others have head that are laced to the body. There are ornate taiko used in gagaku (imperial court music) and rustic drums for folk music. In short, there is a rich and diverse tradition of percussion in Japan. (...)

"Taiko" in general is often used to mean the relatively modern art of Japanese drum performances (kumi-daiko), but the word actually refers to the taiko drums themselves. Literally, taiko means "big/fat drum," although there are many shapes and sizes of taiko. (...)


There are many kinds of Taiko drums in Japan, but they can be broadly divided into two catagories: Taiko with a nailed head (
byou-daiko), and Taiko with heads stretched over a hoop and tensioned with ropes (shime-daiko).

Byou-daiko (also called byou uchi-daiko) have bodies that are traditionally carved from a single log, and heads that are stretched onto the taiko and tacked in place. This style of taiko cannot be tuned after the head is stretched. The nagado-daiko (long bodied taiko) is the most representative style of byou-daiko. It seems very likely that this style of taiko has its roots in Chinese or Korean antecedents. (...)

On the origins of taiko drumming:

"Once, at a time more distant than human memory, the storm god Susanowo-no-Mikoto left his home on the seas and began to ravage the land. His wild rages so upset his sister Ameterasu Ohmikami (the sun goddess) that she fled to a cave and, rolling a boulder over its entrance, vowed never to show herself again.

The world fell into darkness and devils sprang from their hiding places to roam freely across the earth in its endless night. Knowing that all life was doomed without Ameterasu Ohmikami, the gods of heaven and earth gathered at the cave's mouth. They reasoned. They begged. They threatened. At last, they tried to force the rock from the cave's entrance but Ameterasu Ohmikami would not budge from her refuge. All creation seemed doomed.

Until, Ame-no-Uzume-no-Mikoto, a small goddess with a face creased by age and laughter, made her way into the midst of the other gods and declared that she would coax Ameterasu from the cave. The mightier gods looked at the old woman and sneered. Ame-no-Uzume-no-Mikoto smiled back at them, poured out a huge sake barrel, jumped on its head, and began a wild dance.

The loud, hard, frenetic pounding of her feet made a sound unlike any ever heard before. The rhythm was so lively, so infectious that soon the other gods, caught in Ame-no-Uzume-no-Mikoto's revelry, began to dance and sing as well. Music filled the earth and the celebration became so raucous that Ameterasu Ohmikami peeked out from her cave and, seeing the joyful faces, brought her light to the earth again. Thus, Ameterasu Ohmikami's light returned to earth, Susanowo-no-Mikoto was banished, and taiko music was born."

Notes:

From the comments on Instagram (instagram.com/p/McMHrEAPtF/):
- rojabliss: "Zildjian!"
- capricornchick: "From Sabian to Zildijian..."
- the_checher: "Doesn't shannon use sabian cymbals? Those are Zildjian :D"

"The Avedis Zildjian Company (play /ˈzɪlən/[1]) is a cymbal manufacturer founded in Istanbul by Armenian Avedis Zildjian in the 17th century during the Ottoman Empire. At nearly 400 years old, Zildjian is one of the oldest companies in the world. It also sells drum-related accessories, such as drum sticks and cymbal bags.
On December 20, 2010, it was announced that Avedis Zildjian Company had merged with 
Vic Firth, Inc.[2] According to the announcement, both companies will continue to run autonomously.[2]"
"The first Zildjian cymbals were created in 1623 by Avedis Zildjian, an alchemist who was looking for a way to turn base metal into gold; he created an alloy combining tincopper, and silver into a sheet of metal that could make musical sounds without shattering. Avedis was given the name of Zildjian (Zilciyân) by the Sultan Osman II[3] (from the Turkish word zil – cymbal, dji – maker-seller, ian – a common suffix used in Armenian last names which means 'son of') and began an industry in 1623, the details of whose main product remained secret for generations. It became family tradition that only the company's heirs would know the manufacturing process."
