I recorded this in February of 2012 in new york. Jason Crane asked some great questions about my album and about my compositional processes.
Drummer Aaron Staebell’s new CD is Bending and Breaking (2011). In this interview, Staebell talks about smashing different sounds and styles together to see what works; how a visit from John Hollenbeck caused him to finally perform his own compositions in public; why it’s important for him that his compositions have stories behind them; and why he likes living and working in Rochester, NY.
The full interview is playable above, but check out the original post here:
I also did a little recap of my experience, which was pretty funny I think, and posted it on youtube to help Jason with his pledge drive. Check that out here:
