Sticky Jazz Interview Philippe Cohen / Outsider

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Acclaimed electronic musician, producer, and composer Philippe Cohen
Solal and Mike Lindsay, the Mercury Prize-winning co-founder, composer,
and producer of UK acid folk band Tunng, have united for a remarkable
new album inspired by the life and work of visionary American
writer/artist Henry Darger. 

This accidental discovery of the "American Vincent Van Gough" Henry Darger had a vision for the love and protection of children, that has remained almost unknown, but through his art and poetry will be seen as an inspiration for centuries. 

The tribute album is music created to the poems of Darger, and visuals from his paintings. Darger's work is as deep, and powerfull as a Homerian Epic poem, just as long, and full of as much beauty, philosophy, and stories. 

This interview is central around the mind and inspiration of a "Mad Genius" unknown artist, who had inscribed on his potters field headstone "Protector of Children". Never has there been another work around that topic in music. 

I am releasing this today April 12th Henry Darger's brithday. 

Prepare to be moved.
