SONIC TALK 110 - LIVE.
Welcome to Sonic TALK LIVE 111 - this week out chat room swells as we get on a roll of uninterrupted streaming service and we are joined by none other than John Bowen a synthesizer design luminary who's over in Germany working on final tweaks for his much anticipated Solaris synthesizer.
Over the wires this week comes Rich Hilton the man from Chic and Nile Rodger's Crib studios where he works on various studio projects, also beaming in from stateside is EMMY winning composer PJ Tracy, Mark Tinley - just back from his public speaking initiation ceremony with the Toastmasters, and Dave Spiers who's freezing his nuts off like the rest of us in the UK, while he masterminds the GForce Software empire.
We start with an homage to Oliver Postgate - the UK children's TV show creator who passed away this week, then we're on the Stylophone both real and iStylophone versions, then we're on to Christmas themes and No1 singles both UK and US - or rather lack of, then we preview the brilliant Sonic TALK remix from The Circuit Symphony which shows off the excellent VariPhrase technology of the Roland V-Synth GT - great work mate! Then we satisfy the curiosity of Kayle Clements who wants to know how we got together and how we got into our musical gigs. We finish with the perennial topic of messy workspaces or not. Caution, those of you with an obsessive need to tidy up may find this topic distressing...
The playout is provided by The Circuit Symphony's excellent remix of last weeks show.
