Episode details

Tosh and Kimley discuss Tony Conrad “Writings” with special guest Andrew Lampert who co-edited the book with Constance DeJong. Conrad is primarily known for his work as a musician/composer, an experimental filmmaker and artist. He was a hugely influential key figure in the early minimalist music scene in New York in the 1960s. Wanting to explore other modes of creativity he then pushed up against the confines of the film-going experience with films like “The Flicker” and “Yellow Movies.” Always curious, always questioning, Conrad never ceased to be doing something new and unexpected. His “Writings” give us just one more wonderful chance to go down the rabbit hole with him. Theme music: "Behind Our Efforts, Let There Be Found Our Efforts" by LG17
