Everyone can be an artist and that’s ok. In fact it’s great. I’ve had no money and I’ve had a lot of money and it made no true difference in my personal happiness.

“The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities.

This is the question addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era.” – presspauseplay.com

I once performed at an early “rave” in Washington DC with Moby. Before fame he used to DJ a small bar near Suny Purchase (my alma mater).

“Motherboard heads deep into the bowels of Moby’s Manhattan apartment-studio, where he unveils his prized assemblage of rarified gadgets, bizarre synthesizers, and outré drum devices.” – Motherboard.tv
