This episode is brought to you by the zZyzx Society, whose new self-titled album will be released on March 20th on ZSR Records.
Talk about great stories! From creating modular systems in Utah, to building a shoebox EVI, to playing on the Apocalypse Now score - to a long history as a session player and soloist, Nyle Steiner has always melded musicianship with technical acumen. I was really excited to get introduced to Nyle by Peter Grenader, and jumped at the opportunity for the chat.
We start off talking about his background, but Nyle also is more than willing to share his stories - often in a laid-back way that completely belies the extraordinary level of work (and luck) that he embraced. From hardware developments, to gutting out an introduction into the digitial, to becoming as well known as a player - Nyle has a history of nailing the right thing at the right time.
Enjoy this discussion with one of the true pioneers of electronic music!
