Geary Interviews Gary
Besides having the honor of bringing the 9 Box to the Mountain Oasis 2013 Festival this year, the biggest highlight for me was getting to see Geary Yelton’s interview with Gary Numan for Electronic Musician. Geary was my host during the festival so that made the interview even that much cooler :^)
The interview took place in the 500 seat Diana Wortham Theater which was totally packed. Geary had great questions and Gary was super open, funny, and direct with his answer which was really interesting and refreshing. It’s a must see video if you’re an electronic musician IMHO as Gary offers some really great insight on the industry and being an artist in general.
My favorite part of the interview was Numan's take on hardware vs software vs analog vs digital (question starts at 43:19) "It's all about making noises. Who gives a shit about whether its analog, digital, software… if the noise at the end of it is a cool noise, that's the only thing that matters."
Electronic Musician posted the entire video on their youtube channel – http://youtu.be/0KJOY3UoY08.
