Making Waves: Debashis Sinha and Robert Fantinatto (Audio)
In this episode on AI and Modular Synths, we explore techniques - both new and old - used to produce sounds and images for two livestream performances taking place on October 17 and 24, 2020. In the first half Darren Copeland interviews Debashis Sinha, a Bengali Canadian composer and media artist about applying Artificial Intelligence to Veda scriptures to produce the sounds and images in his performance. In the second half, David Breckenridge interviews filmmaker and musician Robert Fantinatto, the creator of I Dream of Wires, a documentary film on the modular synth renaissance. In the interview Fantinatto relates his own journey with modular synths and more recently his interest in a digital variation on the technique of liquid light that he has developed with his son Aidan Fantinatto.
