Episode #36: How to Make a 3620 Podcast


Reflecting on our own practice

Welcome to the fourth season of 3620 podcast. This week is the first with our brand new host Debora Lui, who’s taking over from Kevin Gotkin for the semester. Kevin is still actively involved in the podcast as a producer and advisor.

Today’s podcast was produced by Deb, and focuses on the actual processes of producing an audio piece for the show. Different contributors were asked to reflect on their previous work, and also to think about advice they’ve give to other potential podcasters.

An important thing to keep in mind when listening to these reflections is that we at 3620 are interested not only in producing polished, final presentations of our research or ideas, but also in media production as something that can be constitutive or generative of future work. In other words, thinking through our processes of production are as important to us as producing them pieces themselves.

    I enjoyed this podcat, Debora. The notion of production and process
    as part of the generative or constitutive process of creation
    appeals to me. I make music using software and self-created or
    liberally-licensed sound samples. The particular sound sample may be varied
    in a set of pieces, or may be, as in one EP, a single 8-second
    sample path sampled into a synthesizer and sequenced into divergent melodies.
    The “story” of the creation becomes interwoven with the
    “story” of the end result, a melange without the clearly-defined borders
    of “process” and “product”. This, to me, is the direct experience of
    art or podcasting–not the final product, but the endless “making of”
    experience for creator, and the wisps of that experience for the
    audience. This “process theology” makes the building blocks as interesting
    as the final “song” itself. The key is not just “how did the podcast come out?”, but maybe
    also “how has the podcast changed me?”.

    Thanks for a good show, and for including a little of my music in the podcast.

    best, Robert (gurdonark)
