We first featured Terence Hannum of Locrian last year during his “Veils” exhibit. This time around he’s playing solo material at the Black Cat, opening for avant/experimental musician Richard Youngs on Tuesday, Septmeber 10. Since our 2012 interview, Hannum has released a handful of cassettes, including a newspaper/cassette series (that I had the honor of releasing myself), a book, and a proper full-length that just came out last month. We discussed that along with classic proggers Yes, how he bridges the gap between music/art and awesome, earlier Deicide.
Brightest Young Things: I want to dive right into the new LP. Tell me how this came about and what you want to get out of recording a proper full length.
