    Joseph Branciforte: Sound + Process # 19

    Joseph Branciforte: Sound + Process # 19

    Joseph Branciforte is a multi-instrumentalist, recording and mixing engineer, composer, sound artist, and programmer based out of New York City. This episode was edited by Joseph himself, which has allowed me to approach it primarily as a listener. And I've been must struck by Joseph's balance between conviction and query.

    Though much is covered in this half hour, Joseph's reflections inspired so many questions for me. What happens when you shake the dust of the day-to-day a little? When you inject a new choice into the established theme? What happens when we dive in head and heart first?

    Carl Testa + Warm Human: Sound + Process # 17 (live)

    Carl Testa + Warm Human: Sound + Process # 17 (live)

    On a snowy Chicago afternoon, Carl Testa and Meredith Johnston (Warm Human) joined me for a live discussion about improvising with electronics to explore and expand the bounds of their classical instruments (Carl: string bass, Meredith: voice). It was a joy to learn how software interactions helps each produce distinct and compelling results.

    After the conversation, we were treated to performances from each artist. Carl performed solo bass with his custom live processing environment, Sway, before Meredith capped off the afternoon with a sneak peak of her developing cowboy series.

    Many thanks to the Crowd Theater, whose chicken wings are nonpareil.

    Izzy Barreiro (Stud1nt): Sound + Process # 16

    Izzy Barreiro is an accomplished DJ, producer, composer, synthesist and teacher. They perform as @stud1nt and are part of the deeply necessary collectives Discwoman and KUNQ. They have taught classes everywhere from Moogfest to Ableton Loop. They are also the director of production at Whimsical Raps, a Brooklyn-based musical instrument company.

    In this episode, Izzy explores some wonderful ideas about the importance of community built on shared experiences, how vulnerability develops an artist, and how their own approach to music-making tools has changed over the years.

    Izzy's work is a bold exploration of genre, approach and self -- you can hear more of it at:

    Meredith Johnston (warm human): Sound + Process # 15

    Meredith Johnston (warm human): Sound + Process # 15

    Over the years, I’ve been lucky to watch Meredith Johnston perform in a variety of contexts — improvisational comedy across Chicago, film (2018's Pet Names), and most recently music under the moniker Warm Human — and every project is anchored in emotional exploration.

    Her upcoming album, Ghastly, tells deeply personal stories through a melange of synths, vocal processing, and brilliant pop arrangements. As a producer, composer, and lyricist, Meredith infuses feeling into each bit of the album’s DNA. She tells her side of the story with a balance of ferocity and compassion that is, at times, both uniquely funny and absolutely heartbreaking. Ghastly will, no pun intended, haunt you well after its last track.

    Throughout this conversation, Meredith unpacks some complex topics — her insecurities while performing live, navigating her ownership as a storyteller over shared experiences, and her struggles with different forms of addiction.
