A Big Ears Artists’ Connection to David Bowie

“He comes with huge amounts of equipment… He creates these aural landscapes. He uses them in a rock context with all that ambient sound, and he’s bending his tremolo arm and all that. It’s just crazy, completely crazy sound.” That’s longtime David Bowie producer Tony Visconti talking about guitarist/sound artist David Torn, who performs three times at Big Ears 2019. Read more about Torn’s contributions to The Next Day, one of three Bowie albums on which Torn played, in Rolling Stone.
