How does a saxophonist become a modular synth head? How does a serial collaborator put out his first solo album? And how does anyone get roped into doing a see-all video like the amazing Surfacing (https://vimeo.com/346031783) film? We learn the answer to these questions - and many more- in this episode with the amazing Ben Carey. From his solo mod…
 
Whether you are talking the Broken20 label, TVO music releases, the Further_in virtual festival or installations under his own name, you would have to admit that Ruaridh Law is dedicated. He's a self-described 'finisher', but also has a head full of ideas, so he's in constant motion. With Further_in in full swing, upcoming releases for the label an…
 
In a way, Jesse Stiles has a career I can really envy. Studying with Pauline Oliveros, traveling India while sitting in on music school classes, working with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and teaching at Carnegie Mellon. Huh - sounds pretty great, eh? Combine that with an active performing and recording schedule, work on sound art installation…
 
There are lots of conferences that come along - and move along - without making a dent on anyone's attention. Thorsten Sideboard's Algorithmic Art Assembly is *not* one of those; it's first outing, last year, was one of the buzziest conferences I'd heard about. Now with the pandemic, conferences are a little out-of-bounds, but talking with Thorsten…
 
I'm not sure where you go to learn about music industry activities, but I'll bet that CDM (Create Digital Music) - https://cdm.link/ - is one of those places. Run by Peter Kirn, CDM provides long-form narratives on music creation, tools and projects. It's well-managed, and is part of my daily reading routine - and possibly yours, too. So with its c…
 
As I mention at the beginning of the podcast, I feel like I've know Laura Escudé for most of the time that I've spend in the MI industry. She was there in the early days of my NAMM days as one of the demo masters in the Ableton booth. Later, I started seeing her working on live shows around the world, speaking to Laura's professional bona fides. Ev…
 
There are a few record labels that capture my attention and keep it. One of these is Important Records - not because I'm a get-every-release fanboy, but rather because, when I find myself in a great record store, I'll often find myself picking up Imprec releases. There's just something about the artists, the design and the clear quality that speaks…
 
When one of the listeners suggested Omri Cohen for an interview, I had to do a little research. And 'a little' is key - one quick search on YouTube made it clear that this was someone I'd want to talk to. And once we started chatting, we got on a roll - Omri is a great cat, and is so open to sharing, that we got on like brothers. Whether it's talki…
 
I'm on the receiving end of a lot of interesting PR blasts, including those from Mute Records. I received a note about A Quiet Corner In Time, a collaboration between sound artist Simon Fisher Turner and ceramicist Edmund de Waal. This was a curious enough project 'statement' that I had to check it out - and I was charmed. It's a beautiful work wit…
 
Philippe Petit is a whirlwind! He's produced a ton of recordings - and many of them are collaborations, some of them with surprising collaborators (Lydia Lunch and Cosey Fanni Tutti, for example). I describe him as 'fearless' in his approach to music creation: he's willing to use whatever tool is at hand, and dive in 110%. Lately, his main tool has…
 
I got to know Andrea Mazzariello fairly soon after I moved to Northfield Minnesota. I saw him perform his one-man performance project at a local theater, and hung around after to talk. Things led to other things, and we started talking about Max, playing drone bits in his basement and more. This podcast was prodded into action by a release party fo…
 
Robert Rich is one of my favorite musicians in the world, and I'm always happy for the opportunity to have a chat with him. With his current efforts - working with Paul Schreiber of Synthesis Technology - in developing on a new effects platform, it seemed like a chance to talk to my friend about something that is somewhat different. In this case, w…
 
I'm very happy to offer this interview. Matt Black has been at the front lines of a lot of efforts: early cut-up based dance tracks as Coldcut (if you don't know it, you've *got* to check out Doctorin' The House...), some ground-breaking software development to support their live shows (both audio and visuals) and the development of Ninja Jamm and …
 
In this final 'episode' of interviews curated by Seth Cluett, we get to meet Zosha Di Castri - a composer that seems to enjoy it all! Whether it is working with orchestra, string ensemble or small groups - or dance, or installation or architectural performance - Zosha seems to have a voice for it. She seamlessly mixes notated performance with impro…
 
When Seth Cluett first introduced me to Angelica Negrón, I was also introduced to a few videos, including a documentary produced by Bric TV (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VFGvqdMVnA) that was super-revealing. It showed Angelica gathering vegetables for use as a sensor-based instrument, as well as playing with a collection of toys she'd collected…
 
Doing this interview - one of the series of interviews curated by Seth Cluett - was pretty challenging. Typically, when I speak with someone, their artistry is fairly easily identified: they are performers, composers, makers or something discrete. Lainie Fefferman is definitely not discrete: she's simultaneously fulfilling all of these in order to …
 
This is the first in a series of podcasts curated by Seth Cluett. I hope you enjoy it! Yvette Janine Jackson has taken a new approach to composition: by combining her experiences in theater, in tape-based studios and at Columbia, she's created her own personal genre - Radio Opera - that combines music, spoken word and field recording into a compell…
 
I seem to have known about Sarah Belle Reid for ages - I think I often happen to be in places where she's playing, so it seems like she's been around for a while. I was surprised, therefore, when I heard that her recent release - Underneath and Sonder - was her first recorded release! Listening to it is a treat: there's a constant melding of proces…
 
I'm always curious about the direction a guitarist is going to take instrument building - especially when extensive electronics will be involved. Sometimes it is an attempt to lock into existing gear (MIDI Guitar), while other times it is seeks to meld comfortable technique with new technology. The Smomid, created by Nick Demopoulos, it all about t…
 
I first ran across Joe Caputo's work during some random YouTubing, where his "Voltage Control Lab" was a real eye-opener - especially for a few under-supported modules like the Ornaments and Crime. Shortly thereafter, I ran into him at the NAMM show, where I got a VCL button from him - and the rest of the history is in the podcast... Joe has pivote…
 
A few weeks ago, I got a ping from a listener to check out Jon Sonnenberg's work. A sprinkle of information here and there led me to some really interesting work. Dashing off an email got me wired in, and here's the result! I realized that I'd first run across Jon in the I Dream Of Wires documentary, where he got to show off some of his studio gear…
 
There are a few modules that have been quietly creeping into discussions - and modular rigs - over the last few months. One manufacturer that keeps coming up is Schlappi Engineering - and especially the Angle Grinder module. I'm not sure how you make a quadrature oscillator sexy - but Eric Schlappi seems to have done it! In this chat, we go over Er…
 
You know how there are some people that just make you feel better for having had a talk, email or forum exchange with them? Dan Derks is one of those people. He has such a great way of viewing the world - and of sharing it with others. He also is energy-filled, carrying on multiple simultaneous projects - and all of them are fantastic. In our chat,…
 
There is something kind of fascinating about clock systems. They are the beat of our systems - regardless of artform. They need to be unwavering, but also need to be responsive to our changes. The product that Ed Guild creates - The Missing Link - is a hardware clocking device with a different: it can attach to, and interact with, an Ableton Link t…
 
There are many ways to create a body of work. You can crunch away at tracks, canvases or blocks of marble, building more and more until you have the body of work that you can share as your work. Or, alternatively, you can create a system, fine-tune it, and use it to create an array of work that is representative of your ideas - and the expression o…
 
Scott Morgan's Loscil music project has been in my ears for a while. He's one of the people that folks have always had in their 'favorites' list - and would recommend to me quite often. With a ton of releases going back to the early 2000's, his body of work really stands the test of time. And the music sounds so good... In our discussion, we talk a…
 
Kenneth Kirschner's music first got on my radar in a New Music Minnesota email, which pointed to a fabulous video (https://youtu.be/I9P2Whq_-uc). In this video discussion, Kenneth talked about his process - and his feelings about recorded work as its own 'thing'. I found it fascinating, and reached out - and this chat is the result! If you want to …
 
Rhys Fulber's CV is pretty amazing: from his work with Front Line Assembly, Delirium, Intermix (these all with Bill Leeb), production and programming work with everyone from Fear Factory to Josh Groban, and solo recordings and performances - he's got a full platter. His most recent release - Ostalgia - is an almost perfect synthesis of old-school E…
 
Become a Patron! Andrew Baschyn is a bit of a legend here in Minneapolis. With 30 years of music-making behind him, and a set of both new and re-releases about to hit, he's been super active. So I was very pleased to get to visit his studio, have a chat, and get to know a little bit more about the man behind Baschyn Musik. What's interesting is the…
 
I got a random email from a listener saying "Hey, I started digging through some old video and digitizing it - you might be interested!" So I checked it out, and I was (interested). It probably helped that the first video I checked out featured a young-as-a-pup Seth Cluett, but the range of performers and artists in these videos is astounding. All …
 
Dan Derks opens doors. When I asked Dan about someone that I should interview for the show, he immediately said "Oh, you've got to talk to Andrew C. S." - someone he knows from the Chicago scene, and an active person on the Lines community. So I did a little searching, some Bandcamp listening, web reading and such - and I was entranced. Reached out…
 
It was ages ago that I first talked with Meara O'Reilly. She was looking for help with a project, and put her in contact with some friends of mine that were in the Bay Area. This led to a series of great collabs, and gave me the opportunity to see her grow in her work. And this work is pretty stunning - if you take a look at her site (https://meara…
 
Become a Patron! I really enjoy talking with Nina Young. Her excitement for her work - and music/art in general - is ever-present, and her approach to composition is something that will resonate with a lot of us. Her background is unique, combining a love of engineering and science with a deep passion for music, the result is a deep and satisfying …
 
I've run into Kyle Swisher in a lot of different ways. He was discussed on Tim Held's Podular Modcast, and it caused me to check out his work as Dark Sparkler. He also had a discussion with me about recording a spot for the 50th episode of Tim's podcast. And then he started (along with Robert Standefer) the Source of Uncertainty podcast, which is t…
 
Ashley Bellouin's Ballads album is a revelation. On one hand, you could call it a drone release, but it's not quite that. You could call it electronic, or acoustic, or just plain alien and you'd be right, but not quite. It's the best of long-form music: subtly shifting, a dance with the collaborators and instruments, and a curiosity for the ear. As…
 
I met a lot of great people at Cycling '74's 2019 Expo. Perhaps the most memorable is this week's guest: Andrej Kobal. He wasn't really on my radar before that (despite getting a ping from some co-workers about his application), but I ran into him early during the "Science Fair" (demo) portion of the Expo. His corner of the room was constantly fill…
 
I think I've seen the handle VICMOD bouncing around the internet forever. I've also been listening to the music of Cray for a while, too. But only recently did I actually put 2 and 2 together to realize that this was the same person! I've always like the Cray music for its breadth and honesty - it really sounded like a person's inner voice, rather …
 
Named after the famous Philip K. Dick novel, Scanner Darkly is one of the most dedicated coders in the monome community. He got his start creating the Orca firmware for the monome modular devices, but really caught his stride working on updates to the Teletype - a coding module that features an exposed scripting environment. By adding a lot of new …
 
If you spend much time around the Ableton video stash (https://www.ableton.com/en/blog/categories/videos/, you will have seen Ralf Kleinermanns' work. He is the head of documentaries at Ableton, and he creates some of the most inspirational and motivating artists videos I've ever seen. While it might seem like its a simple matter of finding the rig…
 
I got a ping from a couple of people about reaching out to Thor Magnusson - and I did a little research. I really liked what I saw: a recent author (of Sonic Writing: Technologies of Material), an avid live coder and dedicate researcher, so I figured he was in my wheelhouse. Then I bought the book and read some of it, and I caught his Ars Electroni…
 
Bruce Dawson came on my radar recently for a really interesting project: he is one of the two instructors for the Kadenze course on creating audio applications using the JUCE framework. He got that opportunity by being a C++ developer with one of my favorite sound and plug-in developers, Output. So I reached out, he was into it, and here's the podc…
 
Every time I talk to someone from Berklee, I'm blown away by their enthusiasm, focus and breadth of experience. This week's guest, Loudon Stearns, is no exception. From rock operas to online classes, Loudon has his fingers into just about every piece of the musical pie. I was very happy to meet him at the recent Cycling '74 Expo, and to have a chan…
 
Christopher Reid Martin is at the center of a lot of artistic worlds. Through his involvement with Coaxial Arts (http://coaxialarts.org/), he is deeply tied into the experimental art world in LA. He's also been recording with a variety of groups over the years, and has also been working with Max (and is currently working at Cycling '74). I wanted t…
 
How do you describe a person that was apparently born to be an engineer, but also born to be an educator - and born to be a musician, too? I don't know either, so I'll just point at Chris Meyer and say "That guy!" Chris Meyer is currently putting together some of the strongest instructional information on modular synths in the business; his "Learni…
 
Sometimes I'm just blown away by the people I get to meet. Sometimes it's because of their stories. Sometimes it's because of their raw talent. And sometimes it is about the body of work that they've created. But on rare occasions, I run into somebody with all of the above - and it is awe-inspiring. Michael Wall is an educator at The University of …
 
Talk about lucking out. My friend Tim Place has been on me for a while about interviewing someone whose work is important to him - Stephan Moore. I was intrigued, but also distracted, and so I never seemed to get it together to reach out to him. Then, at the recent C74 Expo, Tim introduced me to him. We had a quick chat, set up an interview plan, a…
 
Not long ago I taught a class at a local college that was about the history and practice of electronic music. As part of that, I wanted to find good articles about various artists that could inspire as well as inform. I was surprised how often I ran across a single name - Geeta Dayal - behind the best articles. When I asked some friends for names o…
 
I've known Stefan Brunner for some time - going back to some of the early Cycling '74 company meetings (I somehow remember him laying out a figure-8 bike path in an alleyway in SF...), but I've never really cornered him on his artistic work. This last February, we found ourselves in a restaurant, and I poked him to explain a little more about his a…
 
Fans of VCV Rack and Voltage Modular will be all over the name VULT, but it's also making its name known for both hardware modular gear as well as nifty DSP trickery. Created by Leonardo Laguna Ruiz, Vult produces some of the best virtual modules I've tried, and is branching out into hardware modules and even DSP programming languages. And, of cour…
 
I first knew Doug Lynner's work as the editor/publisher of Synapse Magazine, an electronic music magazine before most people even knew that was a thing. Doug laid the groundwork for magazine-as-history in our cultural world, and took the opportunity to leverage his position and location (L.A.) to get a lot of great interviews over the magazines sho…
