Trumpet player / composer / bandleader Adam O'Farrill on belonging to a rich musical legacy (he is the grandson of Chico O'Farrill and son of Arturo O'Farrill), how video games, literature and most of all the films of Paul Thomas Anderson and scored of Ryuichi Sakamoto have informed his work, what he learned from working with Rudresh Mahanthappa and Mary Halvorson, the hazy lines around labels and categories, the importance of making space for other musicians to support one another, how he strives to remove "the external" from his playing, and his latest release with Adam O'Farrill's Stranger Days Visions Of Your Other.
