Call in to speak with the host
Wednesday, Feb 5, 6pm EST: Mitchell's guest this evening is well-known musician Don Slepian, Electronic Keyboardist, combines unique skills in music and electronics with a lifetime of improvised keyboard music performance. Working in Renaissance, Baroque, and Romantic genres, he performs original classically-styled music on computer instruments of his own design.
Born into a scientific family, Slepian showed both musical and technical talent early in life. In 1968, he programmed computers and built electronic music circuitry, sculpting sound with classic electronic music studio tape techniques. In 1972, he was a tester on the early internet as a member of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
Don has been presented by WNYC’s “New Sounds” show in New York’s Lincoln Center, by the French Ministry of Culture at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, by the Karen Baptist Church for performances in the refugee camps at the border of Burma and Thailand, and has toured in Hong Kong and Singapore, among other venues, around the world.
He currently webcasts from his studio in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. He is President of Local 577, American Federation of Musicians and Music Minister at All Souls Christian Center of East Stroudsburg, PA.
Mitchell and Don first met and got friendly in the mid-1980's when they were both part of a spiritual community (Synchronicity Foundation) using music and language to create coherence between the two hemispheres of the brain, clear the subconscious mind of old, bad habits and open the way for novel thought and development.
