A Thread about the Why We Bleep Podcast

Post by stromcat » Wed Apr 11, 2018 3:53 pm

Hi Folks!

I haven't shouted out this project here yet and really should - hopefully you don't mind me sharing this here as there's naturally quite a Eurorack focus.

In short, I started a podcast to interview electronic musicians and equipment manufacturers, and talk about their process, the things they make and how, and why they do that, their backgrounds and just generally probe interesting discussion as it relates to electronic music (and music making in general) themes.

There are three episodes now, quite a few hours to digest if you haven't seen or heard it.

Here's da site:
https://www.whywebleep.com/

It's both on Apple Podcasts here:
https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/why ... 1338201154
But it should automatically appear in your favourite podcast app (I hope)...please have a butchers for it.

But it's also on YouTube! I'm filming these as we talk. Here's all the episodes so far.

Episode 1 - Tom Whitwell, Music Thing:

Episode 2 - Justin Owen, Abstract Data:

Episode 3 - Talking Live Modulars with Ebcidic (formerly VCOADSR)
[video][/video]

Cheeky Companion Video Going Over Ebcidic's Live System
[video][/video]

Episode 4 - Transistor Sounds Labs!
[video][/video]

Episode 5 - Mutable Instruments
[video][/video]

Episode 6 - Scanner
[video][/video]

Episode 7 - Tom Furse, The Horrors
[video][/video]

Anyway, I will add them to this thread as new ones come out every month, I hope that's OK!!

Much wub,
stromcat aka mylar melodies aka 'british chris elliott' x :sb:

PS. Suggestions for local-ish female/non-binary musicians in electronic music would be gratefully received!

Been enjoying this series!

Way to use that angelic voice of yours for the good of human/synth kind, and not turning it toward some villainous campaign of mass hypnosis :cthulhu:

This is a great podcast. I really enjoy it and think it works just fine without video too, which is a great thing in my opinion. Ride a bike/bus/car/boat/raft and listen to happy chaps talking about modular stuff is perfect!

Hope you’ll do this for a long long time.

They are great! I've watched all of them and then, since I have a lot of long drives, given them a second listen while in the car.

All the podcasts to date have been excellent, interesting chat....it's always good to hear other perspectives and it's good to have a mix of musicians and makers.

I guess Superbooth would be a very good opportunity to capture some more international interviewees if you can swing it ;)

I've watched them already, excellent job :yay:

My favorite so far was the Ebcidic. I'd love to hear more about musicians using modulars live - you do too right?

They’ve all been excellent so far. Maybe a little long, but there’s been some great content.

It's a great podcast Chris, keep going; I listened to all three on a long bus journey a few days ago, very engaging and informative. Your video on the 0-Coast has gone a long way towards persuading the wallet to open for one.

Thanks everyone!

markthom - Just don't think there'll be time sadly! I think this is an excellent excuse to have another trip to Berlin at some point to catch a few folks.

I've liked these podcasts so far. Your interview style is spot on for the topic--conversational but direct and probing enough to provoke some fairly deep thoughts. Great choice of guests too. Looking forward to Episode 004!

Excellent excuse indeed.

A trip through the Chunnel to see Olivier at some point would be great too! :)

I really enjoyed this one :tu:
And I agreed with all of it! Including the parts that may have been referring to some oddly named forum/s :wink:

That was excellent. Just the right blend of nerding out on technicals and social commentary. I was a bit sad to hear that Eurorack is a side gig for them, I would love to see more modules from them.

Not sure about local-ish musicians? You mean UK right? Anyway I was kind of alluding to on the youtube comments area was that MoogFest has done a great job finding female/non-binary musicians to perform for the festival. Check out the Lineup and find some awesome musicians then come to the states for some podcasts!

There was even one female performer who got upset at Moogfest because they lumped her into the whole female/non-binary scene and she ended up cancelling the performance... The reason was is that they didn't talk to her about it first I think... Well, here is the article:

https://pitchfork.com/news/caroline-pol ... ouncement/

She says that Gender is not a genre! Like you said on the end of your podcast Stromcat, " lets not make it weird... but we are making it weird by talking about it".....(paraphrasing) It's like a weird paradox at this point in time, eh?... But hey, I'm trying to not make it weird. I really am. I'm a bloke and I'm seeing more female performers than male performers at MoogFest! It's awesome!

The patch you've created in your brain is more challenging to modify than the patch you have on your modular.
