‘Seeded’ interview now podcast

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

You can now hear my interview on bfm‘s Seeded as a podcast, here:

Cartoonist Dylan Horrocks on a peculiar trip through his listening habits, which have informed his own work like Hicksville and Café Underground, and even crept in when he was working on Batman.
He recounts how he managed to introduce a character based on Bjork into a Neil Gaiman spin-off book Hunter; how his passion for “beard music” contrasts with his father’s passion for extreme noise metal; and how creating worlds on paper requires a soundtrack.

Sadly, much of the music is edited out of the podcast for copyright reasons (sigh). So feel free to pause the podcast at the relevant points and insert the music, with the help of these links (thank you, internets!):

  • The Velvet Underground: Pale Blue Eyes
  • Arvo Part: Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten
  • Bjork: Cocoon
  • Low: When I Go Deaf
  • Gillian Welch & David Rawlings: Pocahontas (a cover of the Neil Young song). This song, sadly, is hard to find. Videos of it have been removed from YouTube, and as far as I can tell, it’s only available on a live concert DVD.
  • Bonnie Prince Billy: After I Made Love to You
  • Enjoy!

    (note: as always some errors crept into the interview. For example, I didn’t draw Batgirl and Batman – I wrote them, of course. But few people outside the comics industry get that distinction, so I’m kinda used to it).

    Dylan and Ant

    …on Monday 21 June, I’m talking with Ant Sang (and our effervescent host Mike Loder) at Writers on Mondays, at the Auckland Art Gallery at 12 noon. It’s in the Art Lounge (which is in the New gallery). Details here.

    If we’re really lucky, Ant might even tell us about his work in progress, a new graphic novel due out next year!

    (note: photo of Ant above is from Adrian Kinnaird’s excellent NZ comics blog, From Earth’s End)

    Thanks!

    I want to give a big (belated) thanks to the person who sent me two books from my Amazon wish list. Very much appreciated – and if you’re reading this, send me an email to confirm your mailing address. I’d like to send you a little something in return.

    Thanks again!
