Nico Turner: "Open Spaces Are Always Good for Creating"

Multi-instrumentalist Nico Turner sees herself as less a singer/songwriter and more a creator of soundscapes. When she was the central figure in Los Angeles' Voices Voices, Turner led that outfit in all sorts of ambient and unconventional directions. Since going solo, Turner most high-profile gig has been as a member of Cat Power. And now she finds herself opening for Chan Marshall on a tour that features both artists performing without a band.

While driving through New Mexico and in anticipation of Wednesday's show at Trees, Turner was kind enough to talk with DC9 about how audiences are embracing her music and how she just might move to Texas.
