This is episode nine of Pattern Studies Radio. This week I spoke with Joe Westerlund AKA Grandma Sparrow about his work with tape and concrete sound, the many stages of the Grandma Sparrow project - a psychedelic pseudo-children’s music band for adults - and his forthcoming Mojave Interlude project, a 10-years-in-the-making concrete audio film.
