KamranV is dedicated to new technology for music. From his work at Interscope New Media, through his work on the Phonocut vinyl lathe, Kamran is pushing envelopes at every turn. One of his on-groing projects is the QUARK plug-in system, which provides and easy-to-assemble toolkit for quad encoding and decoding of tracks. The stuff is ‘cooked’ enoug…
 
For my audience, Anthony Rolando probably needs no introduction. As the product designer at Make Noise Music, his work is found in almost every modular system you’ll run across. From his earliest designs (such as the Maths) to his latest (like the Morphagene), he’s helping to define the future of modular systems. Recently, Make Noise has come out w…
 
Phelan Kane is a force of nature – when he recently signed up for the Max Certified Trainer program, I got a chance to see him in teacher-action, and also got a sense of his writing and presentation styles. Wow! Adept at everything from cogent DSP explanations to crazy Max DSP external development, he blew me away with all of the stuff that he coul…
 
Yay! It finally came together! I’ve been working on getting James McCartney for a while, and it happened! And the chat was as good as I hoped – we got to completely geek out on music/audio programming discussions, he introduced me into a class of new instruments, we talked about the past and the future… It’s what makes this podcast so awesome to pr…
 
Joshua Hodge is someone that is dedicated – dedicated to helping people learn to do what they love. Oh, and to get a job, too! His project – The Audio Programmer (theaudioprogrammer.com) is a central location for learning about how to become an audio programmer, and it combines his passion for music with his love of programming, and teaching. In ou…
 
If you listen to any of the music that I do, you have seen the name of this week’s guest: Taylor Deupree. He is a mastering engineer extraordinaire, but he is also an amazing artist and collaborator, as well as running the 12k label. But for all of this work, Taylor is amazingly laid back, and our discussion was fantastically chilled. During our ta…
 
I doubt that I have to introduce Andrew Huang. His online entries are a strong contender for “YouTube Channel Most Responsible For Music-Making Coolness” (https://www.youtube.com/andrewhuang), and he simultaneously does tutorials, gear demos and production technique tricks/tips. This is one of the few people that I’ve interviewed that all of my kid…
 
Dr. Cecilia Suhr is an amazing individual: academic, performer, installation artist, painter, recording musician – she’s found herself in the midst of so many artforms. When one of my listeners pointed her work out to me, I was fascinated by the breadth of the work – but also the focus on interactivity, and the ‘honoring of the audience’. Whether i…
 
Tlacael Esparza was introduced to me by my friend Dave Hill Jr. – he pointed to Esparza’s Sensory Percussion as an example of the new electronic music instrument industry. This system (which you can check out at https://sunhou.se/) uses a sensitive microphone, combined with bleeding-edge machine learning software, to map a drumhead into multiple pl…
 
Rachel Palmer is originally from my neck of the woods – the Minneapolis area. But she’s now in Cologne, expanding her visuals-for-music practice, and – germane to this interview – promoting her new music release: Antecedent, on Modularfield Records (https://modularfield.io/rachel-palmer-antecedent). It was just released on November 27th, but I had …
 
I was first drawn into the music. The album “Pineapple”, by Grand River, has been part of my playlist for a while, and has embedded itself into my subconscious. The concept behind the One Instrument label jumped out at me, and I was intrigued by everything that I heard. When I reached out about the label, I was blown away to know that I’d be talkin…
 
One of the most enduring record series from the late 90’s and early 00’s is Pole’s 1/2/3 combo. These albums turned people’s heads when they were released, and remain often-mentioned favorites of the introspective ambient/glitch world. Stefan Betke – aka Pole – has just released a new album, Fading (http://mute.com/mute/has-announced-the-brand-new-…
 
In this second of two interview sessions, we talk with Ned Lagin about the compositional process behind his work (including echoes of Renaissance music), his Seastones collaborators, the ups and downs of the Seastones release(s) and his subsequent technical career. Ned Lagin is legendary. As a former performer with the Grateful Dead, he toured with…
 
Ned Lagin is legendary. As a former performer with the Grateful Dead, he toured with a crazy rig that featured both standard keyboards as well as an E-mu modular controlled by a computer system. During the early 70’s (http://spiritcats.com/nedbase.html). Yeah. He also produced an amazing work, called Seastones, that is a ground-breaking electronic …
 
Jean-Baptiste Thiebaut is someone I have had the chance to work with at Cycling, and has been on an amazing journey. JB’s background is quite amazing, combining a background in computer science with advanced research in computer-aided composition. He then entered the MI industry – working at Novation/Focusrite in product development, then directing…
 
As one of the founding members of the band Can, Irmin Schmidt left a permanent mark on the world of music. Since Can’s breakup, Irmin has left his mark on film music, having been credited as composer on more than 40 films and TV shows. Recently, he has released two albums on Mute Records featuring solo prepared piano work, with “Nocturne: Live at t…
 
I'd heard about the artist Strategy from Portland friends in the past, and always appreciated the subtle complexity that threaded throughout his work. When Joshua Clayton opened the door to speak with Paul Dickow - Strategy - I was excited to take the chance. As I prepared for the talk, I was surprised by the number of projects that Paul was involv…
