I've been wanted to do a podcast focus on software modular video synthesis; doing that made one person's name stick in my head: Kevin Kripper. Kevin is the developer behind the Vsynth package for Max, which provides a mind-melting set of objects/modules that are perfect for all kinds of bizarre visual work. But it comes from a musician-ly place, so it feels very comfortable to anyone with a modular synth (or music tech) background. Hugely interesting.
In our chat, we not only talk about Vsynth and his development, but also a little bit about his corner of the world. Kevin is based out of Buenos Aires, and it is interesting to hear how many of the things he encounters are different - and some are the same - as things we all run into. Galleries, festivals, grants and commissions, gear costs, art communities, we cover all of them (at least a little).
You can check out Kevin's work at his YouTube video page (https://www.youtube.com/user/kevinkatet/videos), or via his Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/vsynth74). I'm a big fan (as you'll be able to tell in the 'cast), and I hope you'll give Vsynth a try.
