Sorry about the missing podcast last week - I was working up in Portland, and was a little network challenged. Now I'm snuggled at home in the middle of a mid-spring snow storm, and am remembering the Pacific Northwest quite fondly.
This week we talk to Ben Bracken. I wanted to talk to Ben for a number of reasons: he's a graduate of Mills' MFA program (which has an incredible history in the electronic music sphere), he has done almost every type of art and music imaginable, and he is an active collaborator. Currently, he is working with Ashley Bellouin on installations and performances that feature handmade instruments, and the work is quite compelling.
So I take the chance to quiz Ben on his Mills experience, how he manages working in so many environment, and how he is able to manage collaboration. A great and informative talk, and one that is sure to teach you something!
