This year during South By Southwest Interactive, Paste and Sennheiser teamed up to present an array of interviews each day, live from the Blackheart on Rainey Street.

From actors to game developers to musicians and more, each interview was an engaging encounter that highlighted just how much creative energy was present in Austin that week. Sennheiser stepped up the experience with their wireless headphones, allowing those in attendance to listen in on the interviews even as they milled around on the patio in the Texas sunshine.

In the latest interview, Fred Armisen sits down with Paste editor-in-chief Josh Jackson to talk about his career transition from music to comedy, the success of Portlandia and how music relates to television. Armisen even takes a few questions from our live audience. Watch the interview in the player below.
