Hecate: rachael kozak/ interview by black dog bone

when I watched that NOTES ON BREAK-CORE documentary it was so exciting. that sound is so brutal, its like punk, electronic, hip hop, tribal, heavy metal, it like noise music. its all there. were you a part of it?


There was nothing tribal in the Break-core scene. If anything there was a current of Occultism due to my label being one of the forefront of the scene at the time, and I always dealt in the Black Arts.

Before "break-core" or dark breaks etc.... Many of the most well known producers came from other backgrounds in music.


It is important to know that break-core as it stands, was always just a beat structure.... As it it was distorted, fast and heavy, you could add anything to it you liked. It was a structural template that was ever shifting but always loud. As soon as it became a commodity due to other outside influences and producers, I had to laugh as I never gave the "genre" much thought as a whole.


with all that screaming and howling and drums, it has this primitive feel. its like electronic tribal music.

Yes....and No. Actually if you listen to my labels productions, I would say they have really good sound quality... layered, multidimensional, well crafted even if totally distorted and broken up etc... The way Break-core devolved was in terms of production, ideas and serious presentation. A few producers were responsible for turning the whole thing inside out for monetary and egotistical aims which is how it reached a very quick end. Maybe it was a CIA infiltrator ahaaa...

I still love torn up hard beats, prefer them to overhearing business deals.


I am disturbed by a number of things. If it wasn’t for my multitude of creative outputs, I would have not have come to the place of answering this interview.


you started in Detroit? are you living in Finland now. how was your childhood spent? were you happy, were mischievous?


I started in Detroit, if what it says on my birth certificate is not forged by the Church..... It took me many years to travel to Europe which is a shame as my father was born in Austria. My mother never had any interest in the land my father had nor his country.

I had lived in so many countries and since I enjoy this interview I will try to name them.

USA (East, West and Midwest) - Germany - Austria - Switzerland - Norway- Finland- UK
My childhood was spent either shying away from my family fighting by reading books in our laundry closet upstairs to hanging in my brothers basement bedroom covered in Iron Maiden and Dio posters ... (no wonder I don't like to hear them now :) I was in many classes...from 3 types of dance classes, to gymnastics, speed reading, drawing. piano, and soccer (football) - I played billiards with my older brother in our later house, and we would tell my mother repeatedly that she should kill herself while we were all in the kitchen. Unfortunately, she still has not... One time she told us she was about to and we were so happy... total bonding.

if it wasn't for bands having the energy to keep going and sometimes pushing their own limits. this life would not be worth living. I appreciate what it takes for both large and small bands to produce, practice, play, records and tour. Many bystanders do not realize how much energy goes into bands releases, no matter what you think of how they sound. Sometimes I just listen to things, things I probably couldn't be drawn to and think. "Hm... Well, they thought it was good enough to put it out, and play it live, so if that’s there what would they change, or would they just totally disown what they did? In most cases people stand by what they play. We haven't reached a point where people are forced into performing under martial law.

are their any other artist that you really respect? that you really like? Yes of course, if it wasn't for bands having the energy to keep going and sometimes pushing their own limits. this life would not be worth living.

My faves for listening are Laibach, Der Blutharsch and the Infinite Hand of the Leading Path, SPK, diverse soundtracks and conspiracy trash on youtube.

and some of the art you make is brutal, real bloody, they have a violent feel, very disturbing. a lot of them look like self-portraits are they? As far as my painting, printing and sculpture... I usually focus on the female form. Some turn into self portraits, some are mirrored as I would want to experience or be as a woman. I am woman. I have no gender deficiency or feel a fault in how I was born.


Womanhood is disturbing. especially when we cannot even be women due to the intrusion of others who cant even respect women as they are... and I am talking of most trans/pc advocates who start placing even more roles on women as there were before.

I started a record label in 1998 for "only women making electronics" which lasted for 5 years.... Yeah I put out 5 12"s on the label but I still remained disturbed by women after that.

I find the rapture and settings of violence to be of some comfort, a fan of true crime and docus, I have studied/researched many offenses to the human body/spirit for my music. Sadomasochism is always a topic as are the darker sides of the Esoteric. your sound is a desperate sound. full of anger and sorrow. at times the sound is dark. real brutal. a lot of feeling and a lot of emotion. where does that dark sound that angry, brutal sound come from?

Childhood Abuse. Drug Addiction. Violence. Bruises. Homelessness. Thieves. Rape. Dark corners. Torture. Blood. Humiliation. Tumult. what made you go in that direction. I mean what made you do that kind of music.

As far as my music goes... It is all reflected in my passions and experience ... and loves. I take influence from the darkest corners and only hope to resonate that. I have no interest in saving the world, especially through music or my art. I actually only serve as some some of reporter or looking glass on the worst points of humanity that exist.

I was geared towards fine arts when I moved to NY in 94 ... that’s how I supported my scholarships to fine schools before I became totally disinterested in the whole "Art World" .... I couldn't fathom spending years with a load of pretenders wasting their families money, just to make contacts for galleries when I graduate. At that point I would rather beat Rabbis in a basement for 500 dollars.... which I did happily. As far as my music goes... It is all reflected in my passions and experience ... and loves.
