Continuing the discussion from A section for "sound and process"?:
After spending a few weeks considering what @raytracer had posted, I realized that I also wanted to know how the producing members of our community use the gear that’s brought us together. Globally, this got me thinking about my time with lines and how I could best contribute to our weird and wonderful hub.
With that, I’m excited to share the inaugural episode of SOUND + PROCESS – a podcast made for and about the monome community, to help deconstruct the ways that folks make music on these grids, modules, and apps.
I chose to begin with @glia for a lot of reasons, not least of which is the impact his excellent muqarnas has had on me. He is also an exemplary demystifier and a longstanding community leader.
Over the hour, @glia and I discuss a pretty wide range of topics: the impact the Persian language had on the album, his on-again off-again love affair with the grid, improvising with Aleph and other electronics, creativity in prefab culture, and the depths to which instrumental artists encode themselves in their music.
Previously unreleased material from the MQ sessions at the end of the hour.
Any and all feedback is appreciated. This is a podcast for us, for this thing that feels like home. I hope it helps address a need. At the very least, I hope it improves the discussion among new and established members alike.
