Eve Maret – The ‘Monday Is OK’ Mix

5 Minute Read
Eve Album Cover 2023 New Noise MEDIUM

Nashville-based experimental electronic artist, Eve Maret, released”New Day” earlier this year via Curious Music.

Resonating hope amidst a shifting world, Maret’s creative ethos intertwines contradictions within the human experience, a theme reflected across the album, weaving the organic and the synthetic, blurring genres, and harnessing the chaos we all feel to try and create some inner peace. Maret’s expansive tapestry blends mediums, from video art to dance, with her sonic influences traversing centuries-old ways of music making.


With a trail of lauded releases – including contributing to 2021’s Moebius Strips, an audio installation and companion album honouring the work of electronic music pioneer Dieter Moebius – Eve Maret’s avant-garde struck a chord with these ears.

We invited Eva to record a mixtape for ways of coping with Mondays… even Bank Holiday ones!

Listen below:

Who are you:
Eve Maret

Where are you:
Nashville, Tennessee

What are you:
Musician, composer, producer, workshop facilitator, gardener, spiritual being

Tell us about the Monday mixtape you’ve put together for us:
I made a mix of tracks that showcase my favorite, most ingenious vocal takes and vocal production – at times completely unhinged and animalistic, other times melodious and robotic – each of these tracks have inspired my process in some way.

If it were to be drawn what would it look like?
A psychedelic, maximalist drawing of a bowl of fruit salad.

If it were a food what would it be?
Fruit salad.

What would be the ideal setting to listen to the mix?
A late-night drive with friends on a humid summer night.

What should we be wearing?
Whatever makes you feel happy. I hate dress codes.

Where was it recorded?
It was recorded from my living room couch.

Are you on the same wavelength as the boomtown rats or do you actually like Mondays?
I’m an idealist and currently not working for the man, so I love Mondays. I have a sticker on my laptop that says, “You don’t hate Mondays, you hate capitalism.” That pretty much sums it up for me.

Who got you hooked on electronic music?
My friend Rennie showed me Kraftwerk when I was in high school, and that was a big moment for me.

Who would you say are your biggest influences and what are you hoping to achieve with your music?
Pauline Anna Strom. Laurie Spiegel. Laurie Anderson. Kraftwerk. NEU! Manuel Gottsching. Debussy. I hope that through music I can discover the truth about who I am – it’s about shedding any old ideas or preconceived notions to heal myself and reveal my true essence. I hope that my music inspires others to feel joy and find healing too.

What were your original aspirations as musicians and how do you think you’re shaping up?
When I first started playing music, I never imagined I would perform in front of a crowd, let alone have a career. I’d say I’m doing pretty good!

Some self-help questions for a Monday:



Am I excited to dive into the challenges that I have lined up for the week?
Bring it on.

Am I looking forward to engaging with the people I am meeting or working with?

Am I going to my dream job?

Am I being compensated fairly for the value I bring to my job?
Good question…

Do I feel energised, rested, and confident?
Yes, yes, and yes 🙂

If you were trapped on a desert island with one other person, who would you choose? How long would it be before you eat them?
I’d bring my partner David with me. I could never eat a human!! I’d definitely perish before resorting to cannibalism.

Your doctor says you need more exercise….what do you take up for exercise?
More skateboarding

If you could travel in time…where in time would you go? Why?
I’d travel to 1969 so I could go to a bunch of incredible concerts.

What was the first electronic record you heard and how did it make you feel?
Computer World by Kraftwerk. I felt total bliss.

How does your brain work when making music?
How does it work when you aren’t? I try to turn off my brain as much as possible when I’m making music. My brain is very active at all other times. I make music to get a break from my thoughts.

What were the first and last records you bought? The first record I bought was Nevermind by Nirvana. The last record I bought was Notes on Listening by Suki Sou.

What are you obsessed with at the moment?
Programming a light show in Ableton. My cat Shrimpy.

What’s your answer to everything?
Be true to yourself and be kind.
