It [Big Ears Festival] all seems to be pretty cohesive, with some older legendary experimental musicians and composers and somewhat newer musicians pushing the envelope. It’s different than your typical concert or music festival... I hope something will transpire while I’m there if there’s time and a place.
I feel like a lot of the years ... it was all very maximal, like how many notes can I put into this thing. Now I’m trying to simplify all that and think about things in a different way.
