Two Years of Musoscribe: Steven Wilson

To celebrate the two-year anniversary of this blog, I’m taking the opportunity to look back over some of the more than five hundred blog entries I’ve posted. I’ve conducted interviews, written essays and reviewed new albums, reissues and DVDs. I’ve written a great deal about Steven Wilson and his myriad projects, and I’ve been fortunate enough to interview him multiple times.

  • Here’s a review of the DVD Insurgentes, a sort of career-spanning video essay/meditation from Wilson.
  • One of Wilson’s longest-running projects is no-man; here’s a review of their Mixtaped DVD.
  • Another important SW project is Blackfield. The duo – fronted by Wilson and Israeli pop star Aviv Geffen released Live in NYC on DVD and CD.
  • In 2011 Blackfield released their third (and best) studio album Welcome to My DNA.
  • Wilson has been working on some fascinating remix/reissues of the King Crimson catalog; I discussed that with him in this interview.
  • Porcupine Tree does not allow audience recordings of their concerts. I asked Wilson to explain why, and his reply was interesting.
  • Porcupine Tree’s second official concert DVD Anesthetize documents their Fear of a Blank Planet tour.
  • Other Porcupine Tree material remains out of print; I discussed that topic with Wilson in this 2010 interview.
  • My first conversation (in-person!) with Wilson was during the PT Fear of a Blank Planet tour. Here’s that story.
  • I spoke with Wilson most recently during the tour to promote Porcupine Tree’s The Incident. Here’s that feature.
