Dan Derks opens doors. When I asked Dan about someone that I should interview for the show, he immediately said "Oh, you've got to talk to Andrew C. S." - someone he knows from the Chicago scene, and an active person on the Lines community. So I did a little searching, some Bandcamp listening, web reading and such - and I was entranced. Reached out, got a positive response, interview bagged!
This was a great chat because Andrew we open to talk about his process, and his vision for working with computers, monome grids and cheap hardware interfaces. By combining music creation, field recording, visual art creation and other work, he's developed a body of work that belies the fact that he's just kicking things off. I ended up spending a lot of time listening to his music, and it's actually stimulated me into exploring some new ways of making work.
You need to check out this podcast! You should also check out some of his online contect, which you can find at http://andrewcs.info/, https://andrewcs.bandcamp.com/music and https://github.com/AndrewShike. See if you don't find something interesting in that stack!
