Dan Trueman is one of those people whose list of accomplishments will blow you away. He's an accomplished fiddler, specializing in the Hardanger fiddle. He's the inventor of the laptop orchestra, having started it out of his teaching position at Princeton. He developed a number of new Max objects, as well as developing the PeRColate object set, which opened the door for using Perry Cook's physical models in the Max environment. And he's written and performed a ton of music in a ton of different situations.
So, how do you get to be That Guy? Turns out, it's all about having a passion for playing, coding and composing - all simultaneously. In this chat, Dan talks about how he manages the process of working in several contexts without feeling like he is required to 'blend' them. The result is an amazing body of work.
