An Audio Podcast about Visual Programming?

This all began as a joke within the “Material Team” – since we do a visual programming language, we should have an audio podcast! We could do virtual patching with phrases like “You really need to connect the second outlet of the umenu, because that’ll give you what you really want for the midiout object.” Yuck, yuck, yuck.

But, just for fun, I decided to give it a try anyway. You know what? It turns out it is really fascinating. The reasons is that you don’t talk programming; rather, you talk about inspiration, creativity, hard work, personal backgrounds and future visions. In fact, behind every stack of code is a very interesting person, and chatting with them for a podcast turns out to be very interesting.

I’ve put up the first three episodes (since that’s what is required to begin the iTunes process), and will be doing one new podcast each week until I exhaust myself. If you are interested in being interviewed, or if you know someone that should be interviewed, drop me a line and let me know.

The web page that libsyn maintains for the podcast is here: The ArtMusicTech Podcast

I’m already on board for more.

I sit and do web development and graphic design all day. I have to distract myself with youtube tutorials about max and audio engineering so this will help out.

Awesome, thanks Darwin! I feel honored to have been asked to participate – chatting about my record label and band background, and all my Max sequencer projects and vintage analog hardware hacking was lots of fun!

I’m really psyched to listen to the other ones, and all the future ones you’ve got in store!

I’m glad you are enjoying them. I already have several more recorded; as soon as I can get them to Feedburner and iTunes it’ll be easier to subscribe (I guess…). Expect a new one to be posted each weekend, and expect the unexpected!

I’ve actually looked for max/msp podcasts for more education so if this “patching without seeing” works then I’m a subscriber. Will check out what you got when time permits!

I am really enjoying these, more please!

One group I highly recommend interviewing is the folks at CNMAT.

I took their summer course and it really opened up my mind about Max.
