Sax and Violence on TV (S2, E9)

Forrest Covington, Jr.

FORREST COVINGTON, JR. won the 1982 BMI Student Composer Award for his composition, “Chthonic Mass.” He’s a composer, teacher, audio archivist, and all-around deep thinker who once built a Gamelan Orchestra out of junk.

On today’s episode, Forrest and I talk about the possibilities of Jungian archetypes in music; the difference between ridiculous and useful contraints; and the power of being simple, but not simple-minded.
