This is an interview with Jeff Snyder (of Synderphonics), the creator of the Manta instrument interface, and a performer in several New York groups. Jeff shares his history with us, from a young Minnesotan learning about Elliot Sharp and John Zorn through his tenure at Columbia under Brad Garton and Douglas Reppeto. And, through all of this, he seemed bound and determined to create instruments that would allow him to move past the typical bracketing of the classical musical world.
This was an interesting and inspiring conversation, and one that's got me thinking about how I create the tools that I use. I hope it is equally inspiring to you. Enjoy!
