Ericast 240 - Art vs. Technology

Click here to listen to this week's episode!

This week it was my privilege to have "interviewed" musician Michael Monroe... but "interviewed" is set off on quotation marks here because the method of interviewing wasn't exactly traditional.  And I think there are some fun opportunities that come from this idea.

The question at hand?

“Do you consider yourself a musician who sees technology as a means to the end of creating your art, or a technologist who embraces technology as a ‘medium’ that’s integral to (or perhaps even more fundamental than) your music?”

To learn more about Michael and his music, visit  and check out his YouTube channel (MichaelMonroeMinn).  In particular, I'd recommend his MIDI looping demo from a Mayo Clinic concert several years ago.

Questions?  Ideas?  Comments?  (Concerns, even?)  We'd love to hear from you!  Call and leave a message at 206-339-3742 (a.k.a. 206-339-ERIC) or send an email to me (eric) at

Ericast 238 - Head Above Water

Click here to listen to this week's episode!

So, so much going on the past couple months.  What do you want to hear about?  Call 206-339-3742 (a.k.a. 206-339-ERIC) like Matt, Dan and Steve have done in response to the last episode, and give me a topic.  Maybe Chloe's ear surgery, painting and lighting the kitchen, planting seeds, my new nike battery, iPad revamping and photo retreival, the new monitor excitement, my Quality Matters class, or coordinating the TurningPoint vendor luncheon.  Or my one-man road-trip to Mason City, Iowa to see Frank Warren's one-man-show about PostSecret.  They're all fair game!

Or, suggest something else!  Incoming Tweets, Facebook messages and emails are accepted as well... but we love voicemail most of all.
