The penultimate Blank Forms anthology presents new interviews with musicians Theo Parrish, Amelia Cuni, Akio Suzuki and more

At the centerpiece of this anthology is a career-spanning 20-hour conversation conducted over four days between producer, DJ and Detroit house music legend Theo Parrish and veteran music journalist Mike Rubin. They go deep on Parrish's childhood in Chicago's South Side, sculptural training and collaborations with Moody Mann, Rick Wilhite and Omar S, and explore how the social movements of 2020 have reshaped his practice and dance music at large. This volume also includes an illustrated discussion between Dhrupad singer Amelia Cuni and sound artist/tuning theorist Marcus Pal, covering Cuni's years studying voice and dance in India, her interpretations of John Cage, and collaborations with the likes of La Monte Young and Catherine Christer Hennix--accompanied by deeply researched essays from Cuni on Hindustani classical music. Finally, the collection features reminiscences from composer and performer Akio Suzuki on Fluxus pioneer and Taj Mahal Travelers founder Takehisa Kosugi, with newly translated writing from Kosugi.
