The Final Podcast

Hi! Darwin Grosse here…

For the last 9 years of my life, I have been involved in a long-form project that has redefined my life: The Art + Music + Technology podcast. It moved me away from the slap-dash network discussions about the differences between Roland models and toward discussions about how musicians became the artists they are, who their influences were, and how hard they work to achieve the results that they get. I decided not to limit the breadth of interviewees, sometimes choosing to talk to (mostly, but not always) musical artists, but to also sprinkle in a strong dose of academics (and their exploration into sound and MIDI), instrument builders (learning about the translation of ideas into physical constructs) and even ‘agitators’ – the people that spurred the industry forward with standards expansions like the original MIDI and recently-added MPE specs. Through all of this, I tried to be more of a listener than a questioner; because I thought I’d get more out of the discussion that way. And it worked! By giving people free space to talk at a technical level they were comfortable with, the interviews ended up with a real conversational tone that became ‘The Sound of AMT.’

While I wish this could continue, I’m afraid it no longer can. Two years ago, I was diagnosed with kidney cancer, and began treatments and procedures that have left me greatly fatigued. Initially, I was able to move forward because of exceptional tools provided by Libsyn, Rev.Com, Patreon and others. I had to trim back production by about half, but that didn’t seem to bother the listeners. But early last week, it became clear to me that my health complications will prevent me from dedicating the time and concentration to AMT that I strive to achieve. As a result, I will be discontinuing the podcast production permanently. Interviews, transcriptions, and related files will remain where they are, and Libsyn will continue to maintain the audio files for me . I’ve sincerely enjoyed interacting with the many interviewees and the listeners. I would still love to hear from each and every one of you, and you can contact me at the same email addresses:




Thank you, and let’s talk soon!
