Tartar Lamb is coming to my town on the 18th and I got the local paper to write up a small article on Toby. There is a short interview.. Weekender: What is it about your impressionistic take on music that makes you think others will be able to relate to it? Driver: There are melodic ideas. The piece is so abstract it may take a while for the listener to realize what's going on. It's sometimes atonal but sometimes very tonal. It kind of goes in and out. I'm hesitant to say there's a greater purpose. I didn't have an agenda when writing these songs. Weekender: I read that your solo project is an extension of Kayo Dot, and more specifically, mellower and more experimental? Driver: It's not an extension, it's separate. ...For the solo stuff, I did a record of more large-scale experimental solo music last year, but Tartar Lamb was put together to play a specific piece I wrote, a 45-minute low-key violin and guitar composition with other musicians doing improv. Weekender: Describe your personal evolution. What brought you to this type of music? Driver: I've always been interested in more difficult stuff to listen to ... and was just interested in a different kind of expression of a musical idea. I also did it to teach myself about compositional techniques. Weekender: What can people expect at Tartar Lamb's live performance? Driver: I think people should expect a fine-arts type of event. If someone's not interested in that, this isn't the show to come to.
