From artists to managers, agents and promoters, these are the people who make it happen, pushing our community forward.
For the past, pretty much entire existence of this show, the guests featured are either names you know, or are the people behind names you know. This is generally out of coincidence and availability of my guests, but as you know, creativity and music are not limited to only these circumstances. I'm always looking at people who inspire me in some way, whether with my own music, business, or just life in general, and I use many different outlets. One such tool is Instagram. While this isn't particularly a shocker, there are so many great and relatively unknown artists uploading their work via this app it's impossible to keep track of them all. One such artist and page I've been following for some time is that of Blankfor.ms, a master of tape recorders and ambient music. One day, I decided enough was enough and asked him to come on the show, to which he said yes, and here we are.
By the way, at the beginning of the episode, I mention him remixing a big rapper. Turns out it was an Instagram only rework of Chance the Rapper, which you can check out below.
In this episode of In Conversation, we discuss how Blankfor.ms came to be, how social media can actually be a very positive experience, and most importantly, his new album 'Works for Tape and Piano', which is out tomorrow via Puremagnetik. So, sit back, relax, and start searching Craigslist for some tape recorders, this is In Conversation with Blankfor.ms.
Grab your copy of the album Works for Tape and Piano here. It's worth every penny.
