Music Production Podcast

Jul 5, 2020

Los Angeles's Joseph Holiday makes dark, moody, end-of-the-world modular music as Snakes of Russia. He masterfully weaves together his modular rig with samples and real world instrumentation. 

Joseph shares his music making process for his own music and the music he makes for film. We discuss how imposing limitations can build opportunities to be creative. It was a great talk that left me feeling inspired and excited to make music!
