q and also a :: Alexander Turnquist
Alexander Turnquist (who is playing Trans-Pecos this Thursday night) has these answers to out questions in the next q and also a.
q: What is the last song you (really) heard?
a: some M.I.A. song on the radio while I was making breakfast.
q: What is your most common reaction to hearing your own music?
a: It depends on the setting. I’ve always found it cool to hear my own music on the radio, but it can be a strange thing for me if it’s playing in a public place. I have a different connection to it than a first time listener. And I hear things I think could be better.
q: What is your favorite artist/band to see live?
a: Tough to just pick one. I think the best live show I’ve seen relatively recently was My Bloody Valentine
q: What is your favorite venue (in NYC, if applicable)?
a: Carnegie Hall.
q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?
a: Contemporary skateboard films.
q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?
a: There are a couple, I have a piano project with Loren Dent in the works. A collaboration with Liam Singer and Scott Solter. And a psych/improv band called Slow Collins. A reference to how great Phil Collins 45s sound at 33rpms….
