About me

Location Victoria, Australia
Introduction I'm Ian Parsons ... and, like most people who love music, music has taken me to many wild, weird and wonderful places. It started with Rolf Harris when I was 6 and from there I ventured into the world of classical music, and from there into all kinds of amazing places. I've seen some amazing landmarks: Wagner, Mahler, Messiaen, Stockhausen, Xenakis, Varèse, Björk, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles, the Doors, Janis Joplin, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Kluster, Neu!, Melt Banana, Lightning Bolt, John Zorn, Einstürzende Neubauten, Merzbow. They've all done, and do, amazing things with music. But my most passionate interest of all is the new and experimental side of music - getting into the mindset, and the sound world, of those who take music in new directions, who try new things and break old boundaries. The universe is a very big place, and there's music to be discovered, and created, in every little bit of it.
