When my wonderfully resourceful and innovative colleagues Noa Even and Kyle Hutchins contacted me about taking part in their new interview series, Talking Free Music, I had no idea the process would be so much fun. Not every interview is!
They guided me into places I haven’t been in years: Johnny’s Balloon speech from 9th grade, my parent’s threats about the swamp, being female in the historically male occupied electro acoustic improvisation scene, my daily practice routines.
Talking Free Music is an interview series featuring today’s active practitioners of free improvisation. Our hope is to dig deep into their practices, philosophies, and personal stories to gain a greater understanding of their contribution to the current free music scene and today’s culture at-large.
