In February, I traveled to icy Connecticut to join Carl Franklin and Richard Campbell at Pwop Studios where I was a guest on their podcast .Net Rocks! During the course of the interview, the guys and I discussed the development of music technology, and a variety of stories from my time in the field.
We started at the beginning, I told stories about growing up in Boston, what influenced me to get into music, my first drum kit, and becoming one of the most sought-after MIDI Consultants in the music industry.
The guys and I dug into what it was like being a musician in Boston, how I met and developed a relationship with the band Aerosmith, and how it was those relationships--along with a lot of hard work--that led to the large residential A/V projects I design today. The guys got a kick out of a story about a phone call I received in a Miami diner that led to me building a home studio for none-other than Ozzy Osbourne.
Finally, we discussed my time working with DTS Sound Systems to bring a theater-like experience into people’s homes. Diving deeper into my home theater experience, we looked back at my time working with companies like Steve Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, and I expressed how proud I was to be part of revolutionizing the home theater industry.
