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…
 
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…
 
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…
 
On this episode, Third Of Never's Jon Dawson talks to Martin Kennedy of All India Radio and recording artist/Jam Records founder Jeremy Morris.The music featured during the Martin Kennedy segment is from the new All India Radio album, "The Eternal". During the second part of the show, music from Jeremy's albums "Dulcimer Dance", "The Gift", "New Da…
 
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…
 
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 …
 
Dean Hurley talks to Third Of Never's Jon Dawson about his new album "Philosophy of Beyond", creating sound design for "Twin Peaks: The Return", and running David Lynch's recording studio.Hurley also sheds light on Angelo Badalamenti's participation in "The Return", why he left Los Angeles, and the path that led him there.From Sacred Bones Records:…
 
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…
 
Marco Petracca owns many names, but my favorite is HHNOI - his artist name for his work with composition using modular synths. Marco has made some careful choices about how he approaches musical development, how he chooses his tools and how he separates his recording work from his live performance. The result is a satisfying combination of well-cra…
 
I've known Wes Milholen for a while - I first met him as he was working on some of his first replacement faceplates. He was part of the Denver/Boulder modular scene, and we spent time at meetups and performances. I always found his crisp and clean designs to my liking, and found him to be a thoughtful developer and talented performer. He's gone on …
 
Let's face it - we didn't get into sound design in order to hang out with a bunch of strangers. We tend to be an insular community, and can barely look beyond our shoes to interact with one another. But the Internet can change all of that, right? Well, maybe - but social media interaction isn't necessarily any easier for meeting people than house p…
 
I've been a fan of Modularfield's recordings ever since I first ran into them. Featuring well-known releases by Ann Annie and HHNOI, the label has a strong identity - but it doesn't overwhelm the artists. Thus, you have variety, but a unified approach, and the whole works out quite well. With a new release by An On Bast, I realized it was time to c…
 
Dan Goldstein has been living his dream for 20 years. He started off with Sonic Foundry - back in the golden days - creating the future of audio software from scratch. He went on to be a main developer of Mixcraft, and has recently been involved in the release of Cherry Audio's Voltage Modular synth software. It's a powerhouse, and you can tell tha…
 
It's pretty hard to avoid gear lust when you see 1010 Music's work in action. Originally launched as the Bitbox, the touchscreen, high-function module has spawned a number of implementations, including the Synthbox, Fxbox, Toolbox and - most recently - the standalone Blockbox. I've been in awe of this system since it was first released, and I'm gla…
 
There are voices in our lives that are always welcome. One of those, for me, is Marc Weidenbaum. Marc has a long history of writing about things that I (and, I'm guessing, we) care about, and has been one of those people that consistently opens doors of musical understanding for me. As the editor and chief bottle-washer of https://disquiet.com/, he…
 
I'm a sucker for a great book, and especially a great series. I also like knowing about books that will help people become better Max programmers. That combination comes into play with Maurizio Giri and Alessandro Cipriani's "Electronic Music and Sound Design" a (so far) two book series that explores Max/MSP programming through electronic music tec…
 
Talk about wired in! Cassie Tarakajian is keyed into a lot of my favorite projects, from the Miraweb project, to p5.js, to the Node for Max project that was part of Max 8 - tons of favorites there. But a key part of this is that it is all focused on the intersection of the web and artwork - a place this isn't always comfortable. In our chat, we tal…
 
If you know synths and movie scoring, you know Michael Lehmann Boddicker's work. He's one of those people that I've always followed - his work is impeccable, and always on-point. He's involved in a new conference - Synthplex - and I took the time to have a quick chat with him about it. This conference seems like a combination of Superbooth, AES, TE…
