I found the link to this GREAT interview on beepsnort.
It was posted there by Joe (our Joseph Benzola, I guess).
It's very, very interesting!
Thanks Joe Very Happy
This is what he says to present it:

This is a great interview which I have read many, many times. It was given in 1997 and Teo touches upon many of the topics and concepts that are touched upon here. Plus, he also talks about Miles, Ellington, Varese Stockhausen, the state of electronic music,these kids of today and various other sundry items:

yes... that is the one.

Nice one. perhaps a bit too much into techno/trance. She is missing most of what is going on by focusing on this.. but the movie is OK. Do you want to borrow it??

You can also see the same tendencies in that interview. She is trying to push him into another franwork, and he is resisting it and instead chattering away about his own stuff in his own way. The interview was great because this resistance from the interviewer really makes the guy talk about his own visions.

Some aspects of the interview kind of explains why I like analog / modular synths and stuff. Well, I share many of his ideas and I can relate to how he looks at his tools.

The same site where you found the Macero interview has a lot of other great interviews too.

Check out the Holger Czukay interview about CAN. They did "Soon Over Babaluma" on two tracks. HAHAHA! Excellent! That one is one of my ultimate favorites.

The laura Lee documentary, Modulations, is quite good. But she ends up with techno/trance and she is really missing out on a lot. She uses a lot of interviews of guys like Robert Moog and connects all this with techno.
I have nothing against techno and trance, but she kind of rewrites history too much. There are several major trends she misses. On particular is how art music/avant garde inspires the early UK industrial music movement and interconnects with the rebirth of ambient and electronic ensemble music. And as far as I can remember she also really forgets a lot of american music and I don´t think she even mentions Mother Mallard´s.

On the other hand, she does mention Can and Holger Czukay etc.
This means she has read the Cope book I guess. Very Happy

I actually met Stockhausen at the end of the fifties. Somehow he had invented electronic music. What I heard was so.... that I thought of flushing toilets in outer space. I was somehow effected. I really couldn't stop laughing because it was so new to me. One person in the audience said to him 'Hey, you do these weird sounds just to give us a shock and out of this shock you want to make a lot of money.' He said 'I can promise you that I do this only for musical reasons. I have just married a rich woman- I don't need the money.' I thought 'This man is right of you. You must get in contact with him.' The heckler caught up with him after the show and said 'Now we can talk frankly to each other. Was that true?' So Stockhausen said to his wife 'Hey Doris, come here. He doesn't believe I'm married to a rich woman.' I thought 'you must look for a rich woman too.' Then I studied with him. I really went out to look for a rich woman. So where do you find that? In Switzerland. There were these private schools for daughters of rich families and I tried to become a teacher around Lake Geneva. It happened that they took me on. I found a very rich girl there and I was paid so high that I forgot about the rest! With this money, I saved a little bit and that was the beginning of Can. I wanted to make for one year holidays. So I thought 'Let's see what's going on in the world otherwise.' That's how Can was established. With this money, I bought a tape recorder and with this tape recorder, we made our first album.

How come I had never thought about it Question Shocked

Seems like it!

I know quite a few musicans who are married to women who make most of the money.

But to go searching for a rich wife! Sounds like a plot for a Walt Disney movie from the '60's! Razz
