I've know Hans Tammen for quite a while, but almost all of the 'knowing' related to hiw work at Harvestworks in New York. I was surprised, for some reason, when an interview with him was released (and publicized on Facebook) on the Prepared Guitar blog, and I learned a lot about him in just 13 questions.
So I asked about the podcast, and he said "Yes", and here you go!
I really like the way he talks about his work - it's as if he is on a constant search for wonderment and surprise, and I found it really inspiring to hear about the lengths he go to in order to keep himself on the edge of his seat. I also liked hearing about the trials involved in managing *two* large scale ensembles as conductor and composer.
