Austria’s Radian is a trio featuring Martin Brandlmayr, Stefan Nemeth, and John Norman, all of which have been known for their playing in a variety of arrangements (bands, duos, solos), with music often improvisational in nature. Radian, however, is a cold-calculated authentic band, with emphasis on the actual songs rather than free-form improvisation. Their third album, last year’s Juxtaposition is their second for Thrill Jockey and the group have finally made their rounds of live dates. The Eye was fortunate to capture them in a very special setting, the Goethe Institut in Boston, and are thankful for the great interview with these talented musicians.

He also has a gift for constructing new instruments out of unusual materials, creating pieces never before imagined.
