Charlemagne Palestine - extended interview

American artist/musician Charlemagne Palestine, a New York native, was an integral part of the contemporary music scene starting in the Sixties, composing music, creating kinetic light sculptures, sound and movement pieces, records, videos, sculptures, abstract expressionistic visual scores, teaching at Cal Arts and performing on the piano with his stuffed animals. Since the mid Nineties he has lived in Brussels with his Belgian wife Aude Stoclet. We spoke with him in his enormous studio in Evere which he calls Charleworld and in which he keeps "all my objects and divinities and elements and instruments etc".
