Q040: How do you find Igor Stravinsky, who you mentioned in your Listening Room #25?
A040: I first heard Stravinsky when I was a baby because my mother only played classical music to me. The first time I listened to him properly myself was when I was fifteen, probably. I heard the Rite of Spring on the radio by chance, and it was so close to King Crimsons Larks tongues in aspic pt.2. I also remember hearing that Frank Zappa was a huge fan of Stravinsky, and that made a lot of sense to me. For me Stravinsky is like a really cool piece of rock music. When I was a kid I loved the rawness of the attitude towards his music that you can hear on the In Rehearsal album.
