Daro Behroozi and Joel Kovel interview the great pianist and theoretician Connie Crothers, who shares her connections between music, energy, consciousness, and struggles against capitalism and for a better world. The question at hand, among many others: does changes in music precede changes in consciousness, and from there, changes in social relations (revolution)? Tune in to find out.

From her website:
CONNIE CROTHERS, pianist, has lived her musical life as performer, recording artist and teacher releasing the feeling — her source — into the music which realizes her range of expression, her virtuosity based in her love of the instrument and her desire to discover everything she can hear and imagine through spontaneous improvisation.”
