Folk creature

For me, innovation does not consist in composing European and academic music with inserted “folk” references.  It consists in appropriating academic or technical devices and subordinating them to my purposes as a “folk creature.”  An outstanding prototype of this approach was Bo Diddley’s use of the electric devices of pop music to project the Afro-American sound.
Henry Flynt - 1980



Road soundtrack


ROAD SOUNDTRACK - A audio trip across the United States.
"Over the next two months I will be crossing the United States from East to West and South to North to compose "Road Soundtrack",  a road movie without the movie.
Material for my composition will be collected from concerts, field recordings, and spontaneous collaborations with several American musicians."
