Pitchfork: When we did the show with you and Peter Sotos and Yellow Tears in 2011, I didn’t see anyone on their cell phones.
Margaret Chardiet: That’s how it should be. Something is happening and people are actually experiencing it, letting it affect them, contemplating it afterwards, and letting it sink in— instead of forming their opinion immediately based on what other people will think of their opinion or whether it will make a good post on social media.
Pitchfork: There’s something powerful about being able to forget things.
Margaret Chardiet: Yes, because then the stuff that stands out— the things you do remember— holds weight, and the other things kind of float off into the distance.
Kind of ironic reposting this, I know. But there’s too much real talk here to simply pass up. Read the full interview with Pharmakon over at Pitchfork.
