Interview with Mattie Barbier

Along the way I really got into this CD I bought at the Bent Crayon when I was living in Cleveland by the Mt. Vernon Arts Lab entitled One Minute Blasts Rising to Three and then Diminishing which I knew absolutely nothing about (and still don’t to be honest) because I liked the cover. It’s just one quite slow moving 20’ minute track and I’d not really heard anything like it at the time, but it was really freeing because it was the first time I found a record that did something like that. It really gave me permission to start to find a way to make things that are driven by slow changes in texture.
