If you are involved in electronic/digital media creation, you've surely run across Julien Bayle. He is a performer, installation artist, programmer, writer and is heavily involved in almost every facet of media arts. He is also a public figure that spends a lot of time investigating systems - and sharing what he's found with the community. I find Julien fascinating, because he seems to be incredibly productive, and seems to finish more work than most people can even conceive of starting. In this conversation, we talk about his background, how he became comfortable with the many technologies that he uses, and how he is able to accomplish so much.
As I suggest in the intro, this podcast was a bit of a scramble; both technical and scheduling issues pushed this right to the brink. But this conversation is a great way to peer into the mind of a self-described "obsessive", and understand how Julien decides on which work to pursue as well as which decisions he's decided to make. Great stuff. To learn more about Julien's work, please check out julienbayle.net, where you can read his blog and follow him through some of his tech-exploits.
The bumper music was again created using Max Million's sample library, this time Discrete Energy II. Cool stuff, and really handy when you've got to pop together something quickly...
