Anorkia interviewed by Louise Claxton
It was fun for me doing an interview again after all these years and discussing Anorkia, which is a project that’s very deeply ingrained in my heart. Dirk and I will do our best to begin a new chapter in Anorkia’s life at a future time. Anyone who reads these words, please know that you are loved, and I hope you create a beautiful day.

A Long Journey Over Broken Borders: from the Chicago Tapes to the Digital West
There were a few years there–the late 60’s and early 70’s–when underground FM radio thrived in Chicago. FM was new then, not yet corporate, and it offered, on weak frequencies, some very eclectic and adventurous broadcasting. I’d stay up late at night and record from the radio—musicians I’d never heard, but who fascinated me: Sibelius, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Skip James, Ornette Coleman, Doc Boggs. The tapes had no genre boundaries or even taste parameters, really–half the time I didn’t even know if I exactly liked the stuff I was recording. I didn’t yet have enough musical context to fully appreciate it. But I craved the soundscapes the tapes created. Avant garde and folk musics seemed much the same to me. It was all musical texture—fresh and new, especially the stuff that was old.
Making music makes my moment
Each time I go to create music, I am awed by the sense of motion and majesty that pulses through me. This is not bragging, it’s just the truth.
Music performed in a Magical Path
There is a form of magic in life that allows us to flow kindly, and that magic is born from the nature of our thoughts.
