In 2010, I did a short Q&A in 2010 for one of my favorite shows, Some Assembly Required, a podcast devoted to recycled sound, plunderphonics, and sampling. Another interview – collaged with many fellow sound artists – appears in the long-awaited Sound Generation, an ebook published by Autonomedia.

Jimmy Bennington, a remarkable drummer and composer, conducted a thorough interview for Northwest Jazz Profile in 2007.

Although the text of my conversation with Kalvos and Damian appeared in a 2010 issue of eContact!, it’s actually a transcription of a 2001 interview. We talked about then-recent pieces such as cocaine and Three Camels for Orchestra.

In 1999, I answered a few questions for an absolutely inspiring issue of monk mink pink punk, which featured artist interviews and writing about Ana-Maria Avram, Eric Cordier, Iancu Dumitrescu, Francisco López, Giancarlo Toniutti, and others. My first interview spanned two issues of Dead Angel in the mid-1990s.
