Episode 9, Brian Labycz

Brian Labycz is a Chicago native.  He began playing the viola as a child, which led him on a path that has taken him from the city's hardcore clubs to koto studies in Japan, back to Chicago where he has been developing his own unique voice in the world of electronic music and modular synthesis.  While I was in Chicago this past March, over a couple mugs of Cafe Bustelo, Brian and I sat down at his house to discuss his personal history, his label, Peira and sustainability in musical communities.  A good talk.
