SONIC TALK 083 I've just got back from Belgium where I had a short break, visiting the delights of Brugge and the rather unusually titled Plopsaland, a sort of gnome-styled theme park, where the kids had a real blast - I can recommend it.
I digress.... this week I'm joined by Noneric from Musotalk.de - the finest German language video podcast site, Dave Spiers of GForce Software, makers of fine software musical instruments, the reclusive Mark Tinley who's recently come out of hiding to work on Sean Wright's latest album, and Rich Hilton currently working on his chops for a gala performance with Chic, Slash, Patty Labelle and Micky Dolenz in New York.
After discussing the merits of Ostend we move on to the bizarre Beamz laser musical system, then talk boxes get some love - we missed them out last week due to time constraints, then a brief sojourn into music technology spotted at the fair (or carnival if you're US based), Garageband.com get some attention after last weeks Talking Heads topic, Mark's tinitus eq theory, a brief musical interlude from Marc JX8P and a JMJ acapella, then we're homeward bound with 25 top tips for musicians.
