A solo episode from Paul. These are the notes I used... the audio is balanced differently. Insight by Bernard Lonergan and 20/20 hindsight. What else (besides the coronavirus and similar epidemics) are we not preparing for? Can we? We can't know all the unknowns, and it is somewhere between difficult and impossible to quantify the risks even for th…

Scott Lawlor reached out to me to start a conversation, and after hearing his story, I was anxious to get his story on the podcast.

When I first got clued into the A-Mint system, I was very curious: I've not been 'entranced' by AI and ML systems for music, and I tend to be kind of skeptical. But some of the video and audio examples I heard of Alex Braga's A-Mint were quite surprising - especially in their realtime use with other performers. This is something that caught my atte…

I love it when I get suggestions from my listeners for something to research. Hearing about "acreil" - and tracking this down to Scott Nordlund - was a lot of fun, mainly because the starting point was on Bandcamp, and his music is so good. I'd learned that he was deep into working with Pure Data, and he had a great collection of releases, so I was…

I try not to reveal my super-fandom very often, but Robin Rimbaud (aka Skanner) maps to a critical time in my life.

I've been a fan ever since, and was blown away to get to talk with him…

I'm always encouraged when I hear about academics that are battle tested in industry in some way.

He…

Whether you are talking the Broken20 label, TVO music releases, the Further_in virtual festival or installations under his own name, you would have to admit that Ruaridh Law is dedicated.

There are lots of conferences that come along - and move along - without making a dent on anyone's attention. Thorsten Sideboard's Algorithmic Art Assembly is *not* one of those; it's first outing, last year, was one of the buzziest conferences I'd heard about. Now with the pandemic, conferences are a little out-of-bounds, but talking with Thorsten…
