Art + Music + Technology Podcast Interview with Bert Schiettecatte of Percussa AudioCubes

Bert-art-music-technology

Check out this interview with Bert Schiettecatte of Percussa AudioCubes - http://artmusictech.libsyn.com/podcasat-066-bert-schiettecatte.

One of the bits of hardware that keep showing up around me are the Percussa Audio Cubes. I would keep on running into Percussa's owner, Bert Schiettecatte, at trade shows, would run into users in different places, and even found out that my friends (see Mark Mosher...) are seriously into them. So when Mark opened the door for me to chat with Bert, I rushed in!

Bert's story is a somewhat common one - a guy with a vision of a product that works hard to make it happen. But when you start talking about all the different things that he had to learn - and master - for this implementation to succeed, it seems like an impossible task. So how does one person make the impossible happen? That's what we talk about.

I hope you enjoy this one - it is very revealing, but also points to one of the most innovative products out there. Enjoy the podcast, and check out the cubes!

Some of My AudioCube Work

In a related note, I’m still using the hell out of AudioCubes in my controllerism rig and with the 9  Box interactive social musical instrument. As was mentioned in this interview, I’m also expanding my use to create virtual patch cables for U-HE ACE (videos coming soon), and using the wireless AudioCubes to play pieces in Concrete Mixer performances.

Art + Music + Technology Podcast 056: Brian Funk (AfroDJMac)

Photo Nov 30, 3 18 01 PM

Darwin Grosse's latest podcat is up - this time with my Brian Funk (aka AfroDJMac). Listen here http://artmusictech.libsyn.com/podcast-056-brian-funk-afrodjmac.

Brian is known for his prolific work to create amazing racks for Ableton Live. I collaborated with Brian on  the Ableton Rack #40: Zebra Attack and Ableton Rack #40: Zebra Attack II so I was super excited to introduce him to Darwin Grosse so we could all get a behind-the-scenses look into Brian's work. 

My friend Mark Mosher doesn't get adamant too often, but when he does, I have to listen. He was adamant about getting into his friend AfroDJMac, and the work that he's been doing on Ableton Live packs. I jumped into my research (i.e., I took things for a quick drive then started digging deeper), and was really impressed with the work. Reached out to see if he'd be up for a quickie chat, and he jumped on the opportunity.

So you get this - my Thanksgiving gift to you. Great talk with a really insightful programmer, sound designer, songwriter and Ableton Certified Trainer.

I always like when someone opens a door for me to explore. Brian's ideas about vocal music (especially mixed with electronic music concepts) are really unique, and the way that he mixes music and teaching is also very interesting. Listen to his work here, and enjoy the discussion!


Art + Music + Technology Podcast 047: Brian Crabtree on the Past, Present and Future of Monome.org

Darwin Grosse’s latest podcast is an interview with Brian Crabtree with http://www.monome.org. Listen here.

I've told the story before - I first met Brian Crabtree when he was working in LA, and he showed me a button/light combo that was a "<shrug>" for me. Little did I suspect that the concept would end up being at the heart of the music industry of the future, and that I would be the proud owner of several devices that use exactly that technology.

In this chat, Brian and I talk about the past, present and future of monome.org, including the continued development of the grid and the new modular devices they are creating. We also talk about his recent music releases, his design philosophy and how he feels about the state of grids in music technology. A very involved conversation that was also quite revealing.

The bumper music for this episode was actually composed (in about five minutes) using a Monome 128, a White Whale module, my portable modular and an Eventide Space. Not exactly a Super Demo, but it does tell you that this combo (Monome/White Whale) has already wedged its way into my rig...

Enjoy!

Great New Music Industry Podcast - On the Hit with Deane Ogden

OTH_400px

Film composer, session drummer, and recording artist Deane Ogden has launched a cool new internet radio show/podcast called On the Hit which features candid one-on-one interviews with “players who make the music you know best”. Episode 3 just went live which is an interview with the legendary session bassist Leland Sklar and is simply fantastic!

I also want to mention this new show is the latest in a long line of projects (such as the informative and inspiring Scorecast Online) where Deane has taken time to give back to the community.  So I encourage you to support this show by subscribing, taking a moment to leave a comment on iTunes, and of course by spreading the word about OTH.

Below is an overview of the show including links to get you started.

ON THE HIT with DEANE OGDEN (OTH) is an internet podcast featuring Deane’s one-on-one candid conversations with the most intriguing personalities in rock, pop, R&B, jazz and country music — the artists, musicians and moguls who’ve created music history as we know it today.

OTH airs each Tuesday on iTunes, Stitcher Radio and Liberated Syndication. The premiere episode of OTH was launched on March 12, 2014 and featured Wrecking Crew keyboardist Don Randi and son of Wrecking Crew guitarist Tommy Tedesco, Denny Tedesco. That episode was recorded in Los Angeles with subsequent first-season episodes recorded in Portland, London, San Francisco, Nashville, Austin, Los Angeles and Tokyo.

ON THE HIT with DEANE OGDEN was born out of Deane’s work in Los Angeles, New York and Nashville as a session drummer, percussionist and programmer. He began interviewing colleagues he was recording with and later expanded to include musicians who’d influenced his own work as well as engineers and producers who have helped shaped modern music and sound.

Deane has also composed and produced some amazing music which you can find on his web site http://www.deaneogden.com/.

Last Friday was such a great day! I not only released my album Fear Cannot Save Us, but Darwin Grosse stopped by to interview me for his podcast Art + Music + Technology. I’m such a huge fan of the podcast so it was an incredible honor to be interviewed.

Checkout the episode here http://artmusictech.libsyn.com/podcast-023-mark-mosher where I offer behind-the-scenes details on the creation of the album.

See all the episodes so far here http://artmusictech.libsyn.com/. You can also Subscribe to Darwin’s podcast  in iTunes.

A quick update on the album. While Bandcamp is a great place to get the album (best value + you get a 10 page digital booklet), I’ve also made it available on iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby. It’s also on most other services – just search for “Mark Mosher”.

If your enjoying the album and want to recommend it to your friends, I’ve setup an easy to remember URL which points to bandcamp – www.FearCannotSaveUs.com.

Thanks again to all those who bought the album so far!

One of my personal favs so far was Podcast 13 with Paul Schreiber.

Paul Schreiber has seen it all, from building his own Heathkit gear, to designing automotive stereo systems, to designing cell phones to creating modular synthesizer systems. I was, of course, mostly interested in the latter, but I was also interested in how modular systems were informed by his earlier experiences. In this interview, Paul shares how he learned electronics, how he designed the MOTM modular system, and also shares his advice for anyone interested in digging into it themselves.

This is the first in a series of interviews informed by the forum citizens over at muffwiggler.com. Don't let the name freak you out; I'm sure it started out as some sort of inside joke, but it really is the main meeting place for all things modular.

Some great mind expanding stuff in these podcasts so tune in and subscribe :^)
