The Time Elliott Sharp Was Arrested

Elliott Sharp, pantar, and violinoid. From The Morning News.As if you needed more proof that the valuable lessons of the ’60s were forgotton, Elliott Sharp has a story about being falsely arrested in 1971:

It’s all too reminiscent of the stories coming out of today’s protests.

But that’s just one facet of a great interview The Morning News did with Sharp back in 2005. Patrick Ambrose did his research well, covering Sharp’s studies with a disdainful Morton Feldman, the emergence of the downtown scene, and Sharp’s early work with Carbon, computer processing, and homemade instruments. It’s well worth the time.
