from stanford university may be the 1st to call you dr. composition congratulations and you've moved sort of permanently it's about then so what's the attraction of. all of course i was drawn to the bathroom is a community here but also there seems to really be a public appetite for critical music and culture oh ok very true now on your latest album protests. there are other musicians you're sort of office but you use other musicians but you have enlisted the help of an ai machine that is fascinated me and that you create is called spoke. why did you want to do this well so i've been a laptop musician for about 10 years now and so working with machine learning really felt like kind of the next step and so i started processing my own voice digitally trying to find a way to make a laptop perform it. it's more embodied and so i always dreamed of having
