Artist Interviews Anti/Beyond

"When I find myself in train stations and airports, it seems like a little window into the rest of my life. In my day to day life, I'm kind of just going along, but when I'm in a train station waiting for a train, I feel like my life opens up. That feeling is what I was trying to capture in the album."

Local artist Andy Masters aka Anti/Beyond stopped by the CHIRP studios to discuss his self-titled album, the role of transportation in his work, and sexual ambiguity with CHIRP Features Director Amelia Hruby.

You can see Anti/Beyond at this month's CHIRP Night at the Whistler on Wednesday, June 28th! Details here.
