From Improvised Outside:

The first post of this new blog dedicated to improvised and avant-garde music is the interview I realized with the one and only Mr. Vijay Iyer. He needs no introduction any more, I’d just say that he’s one of the most prominent musicians, pianists, composers and bandleaders of the generation born in the 1970s. The encounter took place in Paris on November 13th, 2012. The night before I had attended his first set at the Duc des Lombards club where he performed with his trio mostly pieces from Historicity (2009) and Accelerando (2012), along with some new material.
