The Seltzer Salon #6: Zeena Parkins

Sometimes an interview or an artist doesn’t really need an introduction. Zeena Parkins is one of those artists. For decades, she has been exploring new aural terrain and creating her own unique frameworks for composition and improvisation. The scope of her work is vast, and its impact deeply felt. Last month, Chaikin Records released a boxed set of her incredible LACE project. Using something so familiar, Parkins recontextualized this fabric as a graphic score, creating a sonic code where pre-conceived ideas get turned on their head and possibilities emerge in endless threads.

LACE is available now via Chaikin Records.


The Seltzer Salon is hosted by Brad Rose and produced by Foxy Digitalis. Episodes are not on a regular schedule, but are available via Foxy Digitalis or wherever your listen to podcasts.
