Brian Chippendale is a visual artist, drummer and singer in Lightning Bolt and Black Pus, and a founding member of the seminal work-live-performance venue Fort Thunder. Brian talks about creating immersive and expansive worlds in his work; handmade masks; playing drums; improvisation as an important tool; and capturing energy, multiplying it and blowing it back out. This episode was recorded in front of a live studio audience as part of On Air Fest, at the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, NY. This is part 1 of a 2-part episode.
To commemorate this episode, a limited set of collaborative prints by Brian Chippendale and Joseph Hart are available for preview and purchase in the SHOP.
