Elliott Sharp Interview

From Ten Thousand Hours:

Multi-instrumentalist and composer Elliott Sharp discusses recent projects that represent the latest developments in the disparate threads that run through his decades-long career, from solo performance to avant-techno to lush film scores. Sharp is most known in the United States as an innovative maverick guitarist, though as a composer he has been experimenting for decades with graphic notation and unusual improvisational structures, often taking inspiration from Benoît Mandelbrot’sbook on fractal geometry, as well as flexagons and other mathematical or geometrical constructs. Excerpts from recent releases illustrate some of his theories, including the CDs Octal 2, Abstraction Distraction, and The Spectropia Suite, Sharp’s soundtrack for Toni Dove‘s interactive multimedia project titled Spectropia.
