New year, new episode, new focus.
@marcus_fischer has been a staple figure in modern ambient and experimental music for the better part of the last decade. Characterized by his masterful use of tape loops, his works also build space and emotion through layers of baritone guitar and modular synths. His solo debut, 'Monocoastal', was released on 12k in 2010 to international acclaim. Over the course of his career, he has partnered with several artists: Matt Jones, Ted Laderas/The OO-Ray, Simon Scott, Devin Underwood. His collaborations with Taylor Deupree (most recently 'Twine') are masterclasses in shared voice and restraint.
Special thanks is much deserved by @jasonw22, @abalone, @myecholalia, @madeofoak, @Rodrigo, @polyoptics, @rbxbx and @tehn. Your contributions helped pay for SC hosting costs and allowed me to purchase a new microphone! My end sounds a hell of a lot better in this episode, all because of your generosity and kindness. Also, Marcus: thank you so much for giving of your time and spirit. Editing this was such a sincere pleasure. Best of luck in Captiva!
For those interested in helping expand the podcast, I've launched a Patreon(!). Monthly contributions start at $1 to get advance access to new episodes, $3 to receive a digest of research to supplement each episode, and $8 gets you all that plus a cassette tape of each new episode (US only for now). The podcast will continue regardless, but I'd love to move to monthly distribution, publish translatable transcripts in a semi-annual SOUND + PROCESS Review, and produce a video episode!
edit (just because it's been inquired about): for anyone looking to contribute on a one-time basis, this can be done through Paypal at https://paypal.me/soundandprocess
tldr; I hope you enjoy the conversation!
