Folk creature



For me, innovation does not consist in composing European and academic music with inserted “folk” references.  It consists in appropriating academic or technical devices and subordinating them to my purposes as a “folk creature.”  An outstanding prototype of this approach was Bo Diddley’s use of the electric devices of pop music to project the Afro-American sound.
