See Hear Podcast Episode 98 - Interview with Skizz Cyzyk about "Sound Mechanic"


When you were a kid, did your parents ever ask you to do your Wiggler practice? How about getting to your room and playing your Vibrowheels? Surely there were repercussions if you didn't practice your Melocipede????

Welcome to episode 98 of See Hear Podcast.

Neil Feather is a creator of musical instruments (such as the ones listed above), and a firm believer in playing experimental music. He doesn't play with the existing 12-tone system predominant in Western music. Film maker and friend of the show Skizz Cyzyk has created a documentary about Neil showing his creative process in building his instruments, how he uses them, the connection between science, engineering and art, and how he collaborates with other musicians. This is no dry history doc with talking heads describing how Neil “changed their lives”. This is about what Neil has actually done and what he further wants to achieve, and is absorbing.

Bernie and I were joined by Mike White of The Projection Booth (and a gazillion other shows) to talk with Skizz about Neil and his creative process. We learned lots, and we hope you will too.

Skizz is currently doing individual screenings of the film, so keep your eyes posted, but here's the trailer: https://vimeo.com/520019005
