Modular Diary – 081

Thinking about the wide variety of elements that go into making a person: Alessio Santini talking with Darwin Grosse (on the Art + Music + Technology podcast) about how the discovery of Max changed the arc of his musical life – how he for many years put away his guitar as he focussed on his activities as a software developer, only to pick the guitar again, but with a very different perspective. That also got me thinking back to Robert Henke’s observations on the tension between finding it necessary to invest in learning how to build (program) things, and getting round to actually making art with them.
