"How I Built This" for Interesting Music
Jun 28, 2017 by symbolcity

Fantastic podcast that has taken me inside music I love and music I didn't even know existed. It's hard enough for any artist to be articulate about their creative process, so I am stoked to hear tightly edited descriptions of where the music came from and how all the pieces were put together. And all because the producer, Hrishikesh Hirway, has the musical chops and credibility necessary to get musicians to talk to him and let him take them into the weeds of their own process. Then he has the passion and commitment to craft 10-12 minutes of illumination. It's inspiring to hear how often a small, passing, sometimes forgotten clip of something grows into a dynamite song.
