Soft Focus: Ian Svenonius interviews indie rock stars (Will Oldham, Chan Marshall, Henry Rollins, etc.)
" On the VBS original series Soft Focus, Ian Svenonius interviews musicians whom we revere and admire. For our premiere episode, we’re pleased to present a conversation between Ian and Will Oldham, a.k.a. Bonnie Prince Billy. Coming up this season are visitations from Ian Mackaye, Chan Marshall (a.k.a. Cat Power), Henry Rollins, Genesis P. Orridge, Andrew WK, and more.
Soft Focus is shot on location at the venerable Guggenheim Museum in New York City.Ian Svenonius is not only a lyricist and performer of unparalleled depth and intensity (in bands such as the Nation of Ulysses, Cupid Car Club, Make-Up, and Weird War), but also a secret custodian of rock lore and a theorizer of cultural connections that the rest of us, blind in comparison, tend to miss. For supporting evidence, see his recently released book The Psychic Soviet. He lives, like many of America’s national treasures, in Washington DC."
