Unsound 2013: Pete Swanson Q&A

November 2013

Pete Swanson discusses how his experiences in a virtual reality hallucination simulator changed his appreciation of his own live performances.

Jennifer Lucy Allan talked to Pete Swanson at Unsound 2013, with the noise musician taking as a starting point his experiences in a virtual-reality, schizophrenic hallucination simulator, and the realisation that overstimulation connects with own musical work. He discusses interruption, limitation and flaw in his music, his studies and work in mental health, and more.
