    Remembering the trumpeter/theorist/ethnomusicologist/visionary
    As a way to honor one of the most extraordinary musicians, we assembled interviews of a group of musicians/collaborators that Hassell worked with from the start to the end of his career, an essay about his Fourth World concept, an early essay from
    Hassell himself about Fourth World and some related links to interviews we did with him.

    The Velvet's forgotten avatar by Mike Jinji Sunya Wood
    "Angus MacLise, in his art, music, and spiritual life, sought the universal, the essence, the primal. Often his music was no more elaborate than the Woodpecker’s sound, using drone, percussion, chant, spontaneous guitars, or guests in his lessons. His
    lessons were probably meant more for himself and his friends than for a wider audience. While some of his music could be heard on bootlegs and soundtracks during his short life, most of his music was recorded on tapes, made inside and outside of wherever
    he was living. He joined in loose informal jams with a very early Velvet Underground."

    We also have a Spotify playlist with most of the artists above here: <https://open.spotify.com/playlist/5TnVJS3L3iI2OSPoFnGcHf?si=e9cc19f291a94b68>

    We're always looking for good writers and/or ideas so let us know if you have anything to share.

    See you online,
