An interview with Don Preston, who just turned 74.
On how his love for dissonance came to be:
“When I was a kid, I saw Fantasia. Like 25 times. My favorite part was the dinosaurs, and behind them was Stravinsky’s ‘Rite of Spring.’ It was one of the most dissonant pieces Stravinsky ever wrote. And it’s probably what led to me thinking like that. It was one of the most powerful things in my life.”
