    Podcast 333: Roger Neill

    Podcast 333: Roger Neill

    Roger Neill is living a pretty charmed life. Working on film, TV and game music, he is able to dive deep into music of all styles, and create extended storytelling by working with directors of films like Valley Girl, 20th Century Women and TV work like JJ Villard's Fairy Tales. All of this requires the depth of knowledge that comes from getting an advanced degree in music, but also an emotional connection that comes from playing guitar in teenage rock bands.

    Podcast 332: Scott Nordlund (acreil)

    Podcast 332: Scott Nordlund (acreil)

    I love it when I get suggestions from my listeners for something to research. Hearing about "acreil" - and tracking this down to Scott Nordlund - was a lot of fun, mainly because the starting point was on Bandcamp, and his music is so good. I'd learned that he was deep into working with Pure Data, and he had a great collection of releases, so I was all in!

    Podcast 331: Robin Rimbaud (Scanner)

    I try not to reveal my super-fandom very often, but Robin Rimbaud (aka Skanner) maps to a critical time in my life. Back when he was putting out the early Scanner stuff, my ears were opening to more adventurous electronic work, and his efforts slammed directly into my interests. I've been a fan ever since, and was blown away to get to talk with him.

    Podcast 330: Stephan Schmitt

    Talk about a career! Stephan Schmitt started his journey into audio development by making noisy object as a kid, then got into electrical engineering to work on large format consoles (which is where he took on software...), then co-founded Native Instruments, creating Generator/Reaktor. After years with NI (including the development of Spark, Skanner and Kontour), he set off to work on his ultimate project: a keyboard player's dream synth, called the Nonlinear Labs C15.

    Podcast 329: Doug Bielmeier

    I'm always encouraged when I hear about academics that are battle tested in industry in some way. Doug Bielmeier, a professor at Northeastern University, has that - Doctorate in Education, but also time in a DC-area hip hop studio, and time banging out track in Nashville, Doug has the background that brings weight to his music industry teaching - and his personal music-making practice.

Lots of interesting conversation

Love the range of artists that the host, Darwin talks to. It helps that he seems to be knowledgeable about a wide range of topics having to do with art, music, and technology. My one request would be to not spend as much time going over people's personal story. I think it's more interesting when the conversation is about the opinions/beliefs people have.
