We Have a Technical #15: Down the Rabbit Hole
On this episode of We Have a Technical, Bruce and Alex chat with Jason Amm of Solvent about his work as a producer and soundtrack composer on the modular synthesizer documentary I Dream of Wires. The doc has been getting some major attention since its announcement a few years back, and with the recent release of the soundtrack of original music, we thought it a good time to catch up with Jason about his experiences with the film, and how it changed his own creative process.
