“In the album’s artwork, there’s an
illustration of a person that is two people combined into one. Was that
an allusion to Plato’s Symposium?
Everything is an
allusion to Plato’s symposium if you want it to be. I’m glad that you
think that, but if you want the actual answer, I’d have to ask Angelbert Metoyer ,
the artist who did the work. But it’s funny, because in the last
interviews he was asked to speak but he said, “I don’t want to talk”, so
I would say in some ways it’s yes, but it’s also an allusion to all
that is two sided and double fisted. And to the Songkeeper, which is
what all of that work comes from, a collection he’s been working of for
the past 7 to 9 years. The Songkeeper, which is who Niggy Tardust is, is
what he’s been working on in the paint world and what I’ve been working
on in the poetry and musical world. We’ve only known each other for
about seven months, but as soon as we met we realized we were working on
the same project. Niggy Tardust isn’t just a collaboration between me
and Trent Reznor; it’s also with artists like Angelbert Metoyer and
like Melody Ehsani , who makes jewelry and clothing. And yes, we do reference all aspects of history and philosophy in our work, so yes.

one the Montreaux Jazz Festival.
