Interview With Colin Stetson

Source: PopMatters.

Stetson’s voice remains particularly difficult to replicate in either world of rock music or film scoring because it remains restless, unbeholden to anything other than what comes from his mind, his lungs, his hands. Because he remains a seeker in the storied tradition of jazz and classical composers who can/couldn’t settle for anything but the boldest and bravest next move. A performer who has long existed outside the lines of conformity, Stetson doesn’t disappoint as a subject of conversation as he speaks with PopMatters from his Vermont home as he discusses the particulars of the Color Out of Space music or the larger view of his approach to the form.
