    ... to my interviewer. The "sample lecture" given earlier in the day was on the the destruction form in (some) 20th century music, and included an extract from John Oswald's Plexure, as well as a quote from Zorn. The interview was quite relaxed, so asking if he was familiar with you guys seemed pretty natural.

    He wasn't familiar with KD, so I explained their connection w/ tzadik, and how they were an important group in shifting my interest (in large) from pretty standard rock to a lot of other stuff. I was ridiculously lucky to be interviewed by this guy (it turned out that we both play tabla, are interested in historically informed performance and modality) - hopefully I've got the place.

    1 out of about 20 lecturers, who chose the subject specifically to provoke the "that's not music, but meaningless noise!" crew. The music department doesnt have a particular emphasis on experimental music.
