Outsight Radio Interview:  Ken Field is a saxophonist, flautist, percussionist, and composer. Since 1988 he has been a member of the internationally acclaimed electrified modern music ensemble Birdsongs of the Mesozoic, with whom he has recorded eight CDs. In this 14 January 2007 interview he also discusses working with David Greenberger, Oral Moses, and the group he leads; the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble. RSE is a New Orleans-inspired improvisational brass band. In discussing Field's solo work we find the otherworldly sounds he recorded in Roswell, NM did not have extraterrestrial inspiration.

Outsight Radio Interview:  Ken Field (Birdsongs of the Mesozoic, Sesame Street) leaves behind his Apollonian cerebral music to revel in the funkiness of a New Orleans brass band. Ken Field's Revolutionary Snake Ensemble is a New Orleans brass band that plays Sun Ra ("Calling All Demons"), James Brown ("Soul Power") as well as Scofield ("Some Nerve") besides its own Big Easy- inspired originals. It is interesting because this masterful sax man with a talent for the edgy and progressive avant-garde music here subsumes his particular side to incarnate a Mardi Gras mood with rhythm music. Throughout there is a strong second-line style in the tradition of Rebirth Brass Band and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band. This is a party band with a great horn section. The all-star Boston band includes members of Either/Orchestra, Hot Tamale Brass Band, Binary System, Clem Snide and more. In this interview Field discusses RSE and other projects.

Outsight Radio Interview:  Ken Field Multi-instrumentalist and composer Ken Field on his saxophone quartet Dig Big and other numerous avant-jazz and soundtrack side projects outside of Birdsongs of the Mesozoic. Since the late '80s, Field has plied his trade in the experimental ensemble Birdsongs of the Mesozoic. He appears on a few of their releases and has toured extensively with the group. His solo discography beings with Subterranea (O.O.Discs), which exhibits multi-tracked saxophone improvisations. Field recorded this project largely in a Roswell, NM, underground chamber. He performed for President Bill Clinton, appears on Peter Wolf's Longline (Reprise, 1996), and has been a composer-in-residence on both sides of the Atlantic. Ken Field composes music for animation, film, and video. His music is heard regularly on the Sesame Street television show. HBO, The Movie Channel, and PBS have used his soundtrack compositions. Field performs and records with the Bad Art Ensemble, the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, Willie Loco Alexander, and leads the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble, a horn and percussion festival band.
