SONIC TALK 109 - LIVE.
Another live show this week - thanks to all those who took the time to join us in the chatroom while all did our thing - and doing their things this week are PJ Tracy (Emmy winning no less) composer from Minneapolis, Mark Tinley - sound artist extraordinaire and deep thinker - check out his Creative Catalyst podcast on iTunes, Dave Spiers from GForce Software just back from more hearing balance tests for his Labyrinthitis and finally Noneric from Musotalk.de who's busy making more great content in the German language for music producers. Dave tells us the latest installment from the weird world of hearing and balance tests and we ponder a positive word beginning with X, which takes us to Xanadu, Mark's theta wave podcast gets a mention, then we're on to the world's thinnest speakers, made of carbon nanotubes, Ray Kurzweil wonders if machines can have souls - discuss, then we're on to a topic sent in from Kayle Clements about replacing band members, the nifty Optogate triggers a discussion on must have gadgets and gizmos. And finally - Oliver Davis from the Circuit Symphony sent us in a demo of work in progress to play us out. Remember... Join Us Live!

We just tried to name foods beginning with each letter of the alphabet and got stuck at "I" and that's without water in our ears.

I remember reading in Rolling Stone about Coldplay... They started out using their friend Will Champion, who wasn't really a drummer, and when they started achieving some success they were pressured to get a real drummer.

So they canned Will, auditioned a new drummer, and six months later canned him and took Will back...

The quote I remember from Chris Martin is "It's easier for someone to learn drums than for someone to learn not to be an a$$h@!e".
