I couldn't believe it. I got an email message from Todd Reynolds that he was coming to Denver and wanted to get together. I asked him if he'd be up for a podcast-chat, and he agreed enthusiastically. I met up with him and a friend for breakfast, then we retired to the work space at DU to have a chat. I've been wanting to corner him on some of his processes - as well as his background - and came away having completely enjoyed the morning.
I don't want to give away too much, but if you don't already know Todd's work, you should spend a little time tracking it down. It bridges the gaps between classical, experimental and electronic music, and is as influenced by world music as by Shostakovich. Todd is one of the best musicians I've ever seen play, and I consider it an honor to know him as a friend. I hope you enjoy this talk as much as I enjoyed having it!
