SONIC TALK 135 - LIVE.
A sultry day in the UK just before it chicks it down for the weekend of Glastonbury as is customary, still in the dry with me are Noneric from MusoTalk.de, Emmy winning PJ Tracy before a full day in the studio in Minneapolis, Mark Tinley sound artist and blogger from his new basement studio and Dave Spiers - from the secret HQ of GForce Software, makers of fine software synthesizers. This week we first take a moment to remember the work of Andy Hughes of the Orb, who recently passed away at only 44. Then on to happier thoughts with the news that Imogen Heap has finished her latest album and doesn't care who knows it - which spurs a conversation on the feeling of finishing a project, then we lament the decline of the charts, with The UK Official Charts Company unable to figure out how to include the free downloads into the mix - we have some ideas. Nick shares his first impressions of using MOTU's Volta, then we ponder the launch of a new Virtual Teaboy online studio assistant after which we enjoy Johnny Harris's excellent interview with Ralph Huttener from legendary Kraftwerk. Finishing up with the smartphone dilemma. This week, Nick tries out the Røde Broadcaster mic - which does sound really rather good.
