About this podcast
Composers Ben Fuhrman and Nate Bliton get together each month to talk about the latest in electronic music. Digital, analog, fixed media, interactive, they've got it all. They interview composers, performers, coders, hackers, programmers, and scholars. They'll even show you some of their own work. And don't forget the two-minute challenge, in which one of them explains a particular technical aspect of electronic music in just 120 seconds.
