Thanks for sharing that. His new album is nice. Obviously a bit of Buchla on it and he's not afraid of a noticeable noise floor.

That is fascinating! I think it says a lot when artists are so open and humble about their production techniques. Audio interview here as well https://bandcamp.com/?show=346

Haha, I love how casually he refers to the $25k mixer in his live setup. Nicely taped up, too.

That's easy an worth of 200k all together...but what did he said is the name of the mixer?

Sounds like a sympathic dude lost in his world to me!

And yet he says in the longer interview posted above that the Yamaha CS Reface is one of his top picks!

And that's his live mixer right? His studio mixer is a $40k API 1608.

Yeah. Excessive, but he makes some tasteful choices. More importantly, I appreciate that he tries to introduce challenging elements into his live set. I’ve just played live in a club for the first time in years and am thinking about this a lot. It’s key to hit a balance between refinement and spontaneity.

I'm not sure if it's excessive. At least that wasn't my point.
