I enjoy having an opportunity to interview my friends - just because the 'interview' process is actually different from a friendly chat, and I end up learning things that I never knew from 'just talking'. Richard has been a friend forever - probably since we were sitting on crates at the NYC AES show, waiting for the forklift drivers (and we waited forever because we weren't willing to bribe anyone...).
Richard is an amazing fount of knowledge, from classical music pedagogy to DSP programming technique - and all of the things he knows are driven from personal interest. He pursues his interests with vigor, and that's what made me want to have this discussion.
From his time at IRCAM, through his time at Cycling '74 and now with his work at Hanyang University, Richard brings depth and honor to the rugged sport of serious music. I hope you enjoy this talk, and please check out his work at http://www.richarddudas.com/ (My favorite piece is Prelude No. 2 for Clarinet and Computer, FWIW).
