During Will's efforts to get an oral history of the Willamsburg art scene, everyone urged him to interview Bruce Pearson, a key figure in the community, but every time Will ran into him Pearson would recommend other people to interview first! Now we've got him on the record. His colorful text-based bas-reliefs crafted out of high density foam have graced the cover of Art In America and the walls of the Ronald Feldman gallery for years. He also asked to make this interview a bit of an experiment. While the two talked, La légende d'Eer of Yannis Xenakis was playing simultaneously (though they could not hear it). Bruce talks about his early punk days in California, his lifelong dedication to the music scene, and even a project with our own David Weinstein, producing a heterodyne effect in a Brooklyn grain silo using Jim Jones's maniacal laughter.
