The latest episode of the Art + Music + Technology podcast is an interview with Dan Snazelle of Eurorack manufacturer Snazzy FX.
Here’s what host Darwin Grosse has to say about the interview:
I first met Dan (virtually) regarding my ArdCore Arduino-based module (www.20objects.com/ardcore) – a master’s project for DU that helped me graduate. Dan was into it, built it from the breadboard up, then asked me if he could develop a commercial version.
I gave him the thumbs-up, and the Euro ArdCore was born. But from that contact, I started looking into his effects and chaotic modules – you can check them out at snazzyfx.com – and sort of fell in love with the whole concept.
Dan talks about his background and his conceptual basis for his work. But there is also an interesting subtext: his concern about creating complex modules in a world that tends to preference instant gratification. It’s an interesting area of discussion, and worth considering as the modular market continues to grow in size and importance.
