A big interview I did with David Toop, one of my favorite writers, at Rhizome, in which we talk about sound, painting, and silence for about 3,000 words. (The full interview I did was about 8,000 words; it took me a long time to cut it down. I’ll have to post the whole thing at some point–it was a really fascinating conversation.)

I’ve just returned from a whirlwind two weeks of travel on the West Coast. I flew to Seattle and spoke at the EMP Pop Conference; then I went to Los Angeles for a few days to speak at CalArts, before winding my way up the coast to San Francisco, where I used to live. I’ve been gone from home long enough to catch a cold, get better, and then catch a cold again. Sleep, on a proper bed, seems to be a good cure. After a surreal overnight flight last night, I collapsed into bed with my leather jacket still on, Phill Niblock drones playing on my laptop.

    I’m very much looking forward to Toop’s book, since he’s one of my favorite writers as well. And I’m very curious to read the LP version of the interview. I wrote my Masters thesis on Reinhardt’s “black” paintings some years ago, so I found Toop’s discussion of Reinhardt and monochromatic painting (and all the aesthetic slippage & paradoxes they present) really intriguing.
