Five Questions with Jason Kyle Knight

Mr. Knight is better known to most of the internet as The Emotron. I first met him a few years ago when he played in my attic back in Syracuse. Since then I’ve watched Emotron go from a spastic, upbeat strip tease to something very dark and unsettling, with a lot of stops in between. But a real dedication to DIY was always at the core of it all, so it feels fitting to get Kyle’s perspective on our five questions.
