Do you have one or two favorite tracks in which you were involved that you could detail how they came together?

GAJOOB Interviews Sooterkin Flesh


Interviews

Your bio begins with, "Sooterkin Flesh originated in the various bedrooms and garages of Troy Norfolk's adolescent nomadic existence in 1985..." Tell us about your nomadic existence at that time. How did it contribute to your recording?

Thanks, Frank. Chime in when you can, Drew. I am interested in how you pulled everyone together and how RPM works (how did that help you work?). Incidentally, I started an Internet collaboration collective back in May 2000 called Tapegerm http://tapegerm.com which continues, so I'm naturally interested in how collaboration projects such as this come together and evolve and how they develop their own unique dynamic. Feel free to expound upon that or anything else you believe is pertinent.

In Tapegerm, there were many discussions about how to exchange files. We primarily worked with loops rather than full tracks. The music was essentially experimental or electronic. First the sources were emailed to me and I hosted them on homemademusic.com as an open project there, then 4 or 5 people got really interested in taking it further and we formed a group and worked out various drop methods and eventually taught everyone FTP.

How did that technical exchange process develop with Packet In? How did you discuss songwriting ideas in developing your songs? Did that process evolve as well? What obstacles did Internet collaborating present to you?

There's certainly a lot of information there, along with letters about your thoughts around the time you were forming the project. Anyone interested in digging into how that developed should really go there and read all about it.

But I was hoping you could summarize for GAJOOB readers and also provide a little background. How did the members initially come together, etc.?

I'm gathering, following links from archive.org and other places and making some (possibly incorrect) assumptions, that you're the lyricist for the Packet In project and maybe the webmaster. Are you also found on songfight.org?

Thanks, Dick. I suggest leaving your music on archive.org and embedding it on your website from there. The Internet Archive is a great place to keep things as a lasting record.

Like many of your collaborations (your list of collaborators is a veritable homemade music underground who's who) I think you and Jeff strike a unique improvisational spark throughout this album. I'd like to see more people get zzaj'd, my friend. There's lots of pure musical magic in your archive and it's all freely available on archive.org.

One last question. We know what you're up to of late, continued publication of Improvijazzation Nation at http://rotcodzzaj.com/ along with a new service to help bands with their Internet engagement http://musicians-virtual-assistant.com/ and a new autobiography that looks very interesting. And, knowing you, there's probably much more.

Any news from Jeff Olson lately?
