 PJ Tracy - Composer, pianist
 Rich Hilton from camp Chic where he mans the controls for Nile Rodgers' private studio. 

PJ joins us in the studio this week - he's over here on business and came down to Bath for the day - yay!

Shout out to Brent - if you watched the video stream, he was the guy who was behind me er, resting!

We first took a look at the DSP Project - Mike Hillier takes us through his Pro Tools live drums session. Imogen Heap's second track is out - Propeller Seeds. We then take a look at PrismSound2.0 and discuss alternatives to keyboard layouts. Weird distraction is provided by the Showa Hanaka Dental Robot. We then listen to the sound of fireworks and talk about composition with found sounds and sound design in general with a look at the Chrome Speed Film - with sound design from Joseph Fraioli.

Thanks to Rich Hilton for the show title.
