A return is imminent

Technology and the ArtsHi there. Just a quick note to say that John LeMasney and I have discussed bringing Technology and the Arts back with an entirely new format. This time, we’re going to give viewers/listeners an inside look at the creative process (well, at least ours) and invite them to follow along in a series of videos/podcasts as we discuss, plan and execute the creation of an artistic project. I’m pretty sure we’re going to start off by collaborating on the creation of a song. We’re looking to get started with this new series the week of September 14, 2015.

Stay tuned,
Brian Kelley
