The latest episode of the Art + Music + Technology podcast features Pete Dowling and Matt Jackson of Surreal Machines.
Here’s what podcast host Darwin Grosse has to say about the Interview:
Pete and Matt have just released a new Max for Live-based Live pack. I hit them up for an explanation of the concept, a discussion about what it is like to collaborate on this kind of project, and how one might ever be satisfied with ones work. This is a revealing interview that provides insight on code-based collaborations.
If you haven’t gotten a chance to test drive the Dubmachines Live pack, you should give it a try. The two devices are cool to work with, and have a very unique sound (and vibe) to them.

We contacted Stenzel to find out more about the soundtrack and how it came to be. Continue reading
