Seattle composer, interdisciplinary artist, and farmer Nat Evans released Time Being in August of 2019, but it’s hard not to feel like it was written for our present cultural moment. Thankfully, we got Evans into the studio to talk about the piece just before the stay-at-home order was instituted.

In this interview, we talk with him about the 13th century text and Zen master who inspired Time Being, and about his current project which is an homage to his own Zen teacher who passed away last year.
