I mention it during the intro, during the interview and during the outro - I'm a fanboy of the work of Olivier Gillet. As the designer/developer behind Palm App "Bhajis Loops" and "Microbe" (as Chocopoolp) and the Mutable Instruments modules (with Braids as one of my alltime favorite modules), Olivier is on the front lines of music technology creativity. If you haven't yet heard of his work, I'm glad to be introducing you to him.
In this interview, we talk about Chocopoolp's creation, how this morphed into Mutable instruments, and how a DSP-trained student became a leader in the mostly-analog world of modular synthesizers. We also learn a little about how he works, and where he is taking Mutable for the future. The conversation flys around a bit, but Olivier keeps me on track...
