Welcome to this epically long podcast! (Suprise, suprise). We are joined by Tina Guo who is an amazing cellist with a very unconventional career. We are also rejoined by Michael Bard, composer/mixer at StudioBard.

Topic Include:

What everyone saw at NAB and how cool it was, Mike confirms there is still audio at NAB, the true end of the tape medium, first reactions to Final Cut X and what it might mean for the prosumer video and audio industries, why Scott thinks laptops don’t mix with lions, a little more iPad talk, Tina’s background as a cellist, the state of music education and classical instruments, the importance of emotion in music, and why the panel can’t ever talk about anything. I told you its a long one! But be sure to check out our Facebook page. Thanks for listening!
