SONIC TALK 105 - LIVE.
This week our streaming woes appear to be over with the introduction of the Stickam service, everything appeared to go smoothly which makes for a much better experience for all concerned. So as well as the many listeners who joined us in the chatroom at Sonicstate.com/live, I was also joined by Rich Hilton from Chic and long time studio geezer with Nile Rodgers, Dave Spiers fresh from the final release of the M-Tron Pro, GForce Software's latest instrument, PJ Tracy composer, player, studio guy from Minneapolis, and Mark Tinley - sound artist, engineer and top notch programmer.
After hellos and discussion of various ailments we move on to the current economic climate and what that might mean for music, as well as plucking a few artists from the charts in the last two Uk recessions, then we're on to Dr Pepper and Chinese Democracy - thats the new album/single from Axel Rose, the mesmerizing Daito Manabe's MAX/MSP twitch patch video is up next, followed by the forthcoming Vemia Auction - a great place to find all things electronic and vintage, Nick kicks off the movie soundtrack topic with a burst of John Carpenter's Assault On Precinct 13, after which the team tell us of their own favourites, then we finish with Asiohead's MIDI file spotting and also some advice on how to Get Stuff Done.
