||Interview series. Question collection thread
| br>I had an idea:
Let’s interview the makers of video synthesizers.
The questions can be asked by everyone here.
So reply with more questions!
We collect them in this thread and when there are enough questions, I will make a interview Thread.
Possible people to interview: (I’ll PM/mail them to ask if they are ok with this)
Phil Baljeu (Castle modules)
Jonas Bers (CHA/V)
Jason Grlicky (from Lumen)
Eli (from Mystic Circuits)
How did you start with video synthesis / video art?
What was your first video equipment?
What is your (electronics) background? Where did you learn to do this?
How do you come to a module design? Can you describe your process? - from idea to product.
Where does your inspiration come from? (people / art / movies)
what is a work of video art you feel anyone working in the field should see?
what is your favorite media format?
1 piece of gear you believe you would keep forever?
note: this is also posted on the LZX community forum.
I'll collect all replies and will do the interview threads on both forums. br> br>
| br>hey nice stuff! am slowly working on a 'zine and would love to publish some of these... if you're up for it br> br>
| br>I was hoping for other people to add some questions. But I will do this anyway, it will just take some more effort to get all question right.
I'd be up for it! br> br>

| br>Being a newbie, I don't really have much to add in the way of questions. But I am looking to reading the interviews! br> br>
| br>hi fetid eye
you could add Daniel Sandin to the list
also the people behind big pauper and tachyons+ and Dave Jones
and maybe you could add some of the more well known exponents of the art:
for example br> br>
| br>Good ideas!
do you have questions for the list too? br> br>
| br>I'd ask about:
a guided tour of their rig (possibly studio/lab/performance) obviously a snapshot, but interesting all the same
their favourite piece of their own work
anyone that they think should be looked out for - ie recommend people they like who maybe others don't know about br> br>
