As well as these ready-to-go pieces, the musician adds of future projects on the horizon: "I know I’m scheduled to do some film scores, and they’re accompanying genres and flavours 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…"
It's no surprise that Serj has such wildly different works coming. In this week's Kerrang! Cover Story, he explains how music should not be defined, using a pretty tasty metaphor to detail his views.
"Each genre has its own potency: rock is the music of revolution, rock is the music of protest and change," he says. "Classical music has the subtleties of so much emotion that can touch upon the rebellious nature of rock in one point, then be so vulnerable and beautiful in another way that rock can’t touch. Jazz has so many implications and capabilities, from sexy vibes to crazy progressive elements.
"Genres of music are like different types of food; you can’t just eat pizza all day."
