Scanner Interview Stream

In his February update to his scannerdot.com website, Scanner (aka Robin Rimbaud) directs readers to a streaming interview he did in Amsterdam for the 3voor12.vpro.nl site (page here; click on the little animated widget of film in the center of the screen). The eight-minute video includes some performance footage (note the iPod that’s part of his setup), and he discusses a variety of subjects, including his difficulty making funky music, the power of repetition, the persistence of his Scanner modus operandi, his upcoming plans for field recording compositions in Vietnam and Australia, and the threat of homogenization of music due to standardized software. “I think the most important thing,” he says, “is to find a voice … whether you’re making your own music, [or] whether you’re curating … by DJing.”
