Over at a Jazz Noise, you can read my answers to Dave Foxall’s 7 Questions such as my take on collaboration or what I seek in collaborators; what and who I’ve been listening to; what I’ve got planned; my take on the late-capitalist bootleg economy; and about my non-musical influences. Plus you can hear an exclusive track from Sirene 1009!

The piece was accompanied by an excerpt from my interview with Miguel Copón: I’m not sure at all where this is leading, but […]

Prepared Guitar: 13 Questions

For Miguel Copón, Prepared Guitar is a “metaphor about metamorphosis” and a “place to support independent artists”. Prepared Guitar recently published my response to Copón’s 13 Questions, so you can now read, among other things, about my first guitar, my musical roots (as contradictory as they may be), and what I’m currently working on: A […]

Crucible Sound: interview with Han-earl Park

Over at Crucible Sound, Anthony Levin-Decanini interviews Han-earl Park about idiom, identity, collaborators, teaching and a-ha moments: Idiom, tradition, identity, history (personal or collective) are things that I value.

Human-Machine Improvisations (Cork, 2010) on RTÉ: Morning Ireland

Ten Questions from the Cork Independent

From the local free tabloid, the Cork Independent. My first (last?) fluff piece… How many members of the (semi-fictional) trans-national tribe of latter-day improvising musicians can say they’ve done a fluff piece, huh? (Not counting the blindfold tests.) Braxton? Crispell? Parker? Ha! I don’t think so…. The newspaper piece was by Graham Lynch, with a […]
