SONIC TALK 085 It's a hot day here and I'm being subjected to more building noise - which means I cant open the windows to cool down - darn! However, I'm joined this week by Rich Hilton, Nile Rodgers' studio main man and Chic keyboardist, as he considers heading for his porch for the duration, as does Mark Tinley - long time Duran Duran man and sound artist - but is thwarted by the bright sunlight - (he can't read the screen). Meanwhile indoors, Dave Spiers - GForce Software dude, develops his studio tan and Pro Sound News Europe's Editor Dave Robinson lives the high life up in the swanky penthouse meeting room at CMP towers overlooking the Thames. Our topics this week range from a quick plug for the WNYC Radio Lab podcasts, intelligence and rhythmic accuracy proves drummers are clever (or does it?), in-ear monitor systems, Lipps Inc. Funkytown, and the largest UK music chain goes down. Finishing up we talk of the Moog guitar, which turns out to be real after all. Somehow from there we get to Toyah Wilcox and dislexia - who says we go off topic? Remember...
