Art + Music + Technology

John Keston came onto my radar in sort of a random way - he sent me a link to some of his music, and I kind of fell in love with it. It was sound designerly, but also musically deep. Then I started digging into his work, and it touched on a lot of my interests.

So wouldn't you know that, when I interviewed him, I find out that our paths were constructed in similar ways. Musc, tech, art - it boils together to become an interesting - and personal - mix. In John's case, this was programming, music and gigging, expansion into visual arts and finding a way to bring it all together. Some of his concepts on scores and improvisation are incredibly insightful, and I really appreciated him sharing his background and perspectives.

Some of the links to his work are useful for getting in deeper:

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
