I first got to know the Vasulkas through their association with David Stout and Cory Metcalf (of Noisefold), and during one of their visits to University of Denver. I was charmed by them immediately (as so many are...), and we've hung out many times over the subsequent years. They often probe other people about their backgrounds and interests, but often are shy about talking about their own.
During a workshopping visit to Seattle, the Woody and Steina were visiting the Cornish College of the Arts, and we got a chance to get caught up. They were willing to be interviewed for the podcast, so we went forward. But, alas, the damned Tascam recorder didn't work correctly, so the only audio capture that I got was fro the backup laptop. So I'm sorry about the audio quality...
This was a long interview, so - based on listener request - I broke it up into two pieces: the 'early years' (Europe through New York City) and the 'later years' (Buffalo to Santa Fe). This is part one; part two will drop in a few days. In the meantime, enjoy the podcast, and do some digging - learning about the Vasulka's history is well worth it!
