Podcast #15 – J Marinelli | booking shows and touring
For episode 15 I talk about my Manasota Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/882086168/manasota-lp-vinyl then guest Jay Marinelli stopped by to talk about being a one man band, our UFO sighting, how to get over playing a crappy show, tour booking and playing in Europe.

Podcast #14 - There is no podcast #14

Well, there was supposed to be an episode 14 but the guests cancelled. So why didn't I just call the next guest 14? Well I had a folder already setup for #14 so when creating my next podcast I saw the #14 folder and naturally starting calling everything #15, even in the podcast itself. So by the time I realized what I had done is was already too late unless I wanted to rerecord everything, which I didn't. So there is no podcast #14 :P

Podcast #13 - David Elsener | Computer Nostalgia




David Elsener, a gentleman and the creator of the experimental video and audio project, Fornax Void, stopped by via Skype by way of Lucerne Switzerland! We had an amazing talk about the internet’s never ending nostalgia craze, vintage computers, VHS recording, 3D modeling and animation in blender, using vintage software in modern times, and David’s unheard chiptune LP made entirely on commodore 64s (that I’m trying to get him to release on Anthill Recordings)

Podcast #12 Will Scecina | being a working musician and the meaning of life



Episode #12 - Will Scecina | Being a working musician and the meaning of life

My old friend Will Scecina stopped by on Skype and we had an amazing chat about being a professional "working musician" and the things that it takes to make a living playing music in today's world. This is what Will does. He plays corporate gigs, weddings, entertainment gigs, covers and nearly all other types of live gigs that generate income.

We also talk about the public's value, or lack of value towards music in general, and how somebody who understands the details of an art form will most likely value it more than those that do not.

We also touched on homelessness, poverty, economics, animal rights and how to get started in becoming a professional musician. Will was a great guest and we had a great talk. Will's website http://www.willscecinamusic.com/

Candstandya – Ocean http://anthillrecordings.com/2015/01/08/candstandya-slow-motions/

 We had a great talk about his documentary, what Vaporwave is, how the younger millennials are exposed to far more media than all generations of the past, how intellectual property is a dying concept. We also speculated about what media and the internet will be like in the future, performing live, effort or lack of effort in music, is Vaporwave music or art, or both, or neither? is it stealing?what makes certain types of Vaporwave unsettling, and how the internet is making younger generations far more global reaching than those that came before them.
