Listen to Brian Clevinger (Inventor of Absynth) Interview on Art + Music + Technology Podcast

Art-music-technology-brian-clevinger

I've been using Absynth since version 1. It IS my desert island synth. This being the case I was super excited that Darwin Grosse interviewed Absynth's creator Brian Clevinger for this week's podcast Art + Music + Technology Podcast!

Listen to episode #131 here – http://artmusictech.libsyn.com/podcast-131-brian-clevinger-absynth or on iTunes (where you can subscribe to the podcast).

Absynth is one of my favorite software synthesizers. It is everything you'd want in a modular system, but is packages like a standard instrument – helping smooth the way for quick-and-efficient patch development. But the level of modulation and pure sound design goodness is unparalleled – and this thing is 15 years old!

It's a sign of great work when something lasts, and 15 years is forever in software terms. What makes Absynth so great? A combination of excellent design, fantastic sound and the fortitude to keep improving it the whole time.

Several people have pointed to Brian as a potential interview; I finally reached out to him and found him more than willing. Then we started talking, and it turned out to be one of the great chats that I've had. Brian is a cool guy, and was willing to be introspective about his work and perspectives. I felt like I made a new friend during our discussion – and you get to hear it happen.

Check out Brian's sound work at his Soundcloud page. And if you aren't using Absynth, you need to check it out at its Native Instruments product page. Enjoy!
