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.
