About Trevor Dunn:
Trevor Roy Dunn is an American composer, bass guitarist and double bassist.
It wasn't until after private lessons and learning bass lines that I even noticed bass in the music I was listening to at that age. My ears were blown wide open.
I think it was more personal, but I certainly tried to adapt certain concepts of Surrealism.
There's a reason I moved to NYC, and if I listed all the musicians on my list you'd grow weary.
It's too hard for me to comment on the sorry state of our culture.
I've experienced as much fame as I ever want to.
But I also like to be in control, like anyone else. I try to achieve a balance.
Bungle is definitely a priority right now.
Being in several, disparate bands is what I thrive on.
The bungle tour is a bit up in the air due to the fact this at we are getting screwed by our overseas label.
Different people bring out different aspects of ones personality.
NYC is chaotic. And I am attracted to chaos.
I need to broaden my horizons.
I never understood why the metal heads in my school hated the punks.
Pop culture is not about depth. It's about marketing, supply and demand, consumerism.
Mullets are still going strong in the south and places like St Louis or the Carolinas.
Well, I've never been to Japan so I couldn't say. I do know that we have a bit of a following there however.
I don't really know why I chose bass except that it was different than guitar.
Harry Patch didn't get enough recognition. Jerry Garcia got too much.
Now I am obsessed with collecting Platypus paraphernalia.
If I can introduce someone to something new, as is constantly happening to me, then I am elated.
