Every fan of all realms of electronic music has experienced it. Someone you’re talking tunes with slams the whole scene, serving up the slight, “Anyone can do that. They just push buttons. I like real instruments.” Ladies and Gentleman of the Audiophilic Jury, let me share with you a piece of footage, created by Edison and his crew, that I consider Sound evidence in defense of the creative bastion we know to be electronic music:
After ages of ogling his astoundingly fresh videos, I reached out to Edison, the up and coming SF based begetter of Monome beats. I received a shout back from a refreshingly grounded individual, brimming with creative essence. He was so kind as to share a few moments of time with me for his interview.
I caught up with Edison one night after he shared a vegetarian mock-Thanksgiving meal with his wife and friends. In addition to chatting him up about his craft, I learned Edison to be an advocate of avocados, compulsive cyclist, and prolific painter. He also has a long and complicated relationship with music that has allowed him to become the masterful producer he is.
