Episode 2: DANCING ON THE HYPHEN - with Phillip Johnston

Sound Propositions the podcast has the same mission  statement as the written Sound Propositions features: to share in depth  discussions with artists whose work we love, to delve into the details  of their creative practice. This episode features saxophonist and  composer Phillip Johnston, known for his work with genre-bending jazz  ensemble The Microscopic Septet, the Beefheart tribute Fast 'N Bulbous,  and as the composer of silent film scores. Johnston moved to Australia  over a decade ago, but NYC still feels like his home turf. We were both  back in town last November for Thanksgiving, and we met to discuss  memory, music, media, the (not-so-silent) history of silent film, and his  long-association with the various music scenes of NYC. Special thanks to Phillip, Joyce, Steve, and Smalls. Read more, including a tracklist, at www.acloserlisten.com
