Sevish and Jacob Barton interview Stephen Weigel about his new absurdist postmodern EDM album, one that pushes the envelope with regards to how complexity is perceived and how tuning systems are defined and used. Topics include speaking vs. writing, xenrhythm, the Bandcamp scene, imaginary divisions of the octave, dog vs. cat people, workflow, exploring new constraints on parameters, support, and how to piss off the right people.
