This evening, we listened to an excerpt of an interview conducted at WKCR's studios this afternoon with Carly Ptak and Twig Harper, the core duo who make up the current incarnation of Nautical Almanac. Nautical Almanac, a legendary noise outfit founded in 1994 by Harper in Michigan, relocated with the move of Ptak and Harper to Baltimore almost 10 years ago, becoming an integral part of the music scene in Baltimore's flourishing arts community.
Ptak and Harper speak about their work in Nautical Almanac and the artistic and philosophic approach and attitude towards music and art. They also speak about their time in Baltimore running Tarantula Hill, their home-turned-performance-and-recording space. They also discuss their label Heresee Records and the meaning of issuing concrete releases of recorded audio. In addition to their artistic output, Carly and Twig discuss their work in hypnosis and instrument and machine invention, respectively. For more information about Carly and Twig, check out http://www.heresee.com/, the website where all information about their label and music and personal projects can be found.
