Hollywood music editor, interface designer, sound entrepreneur Alex Levy joins us to discuss the evolution of creative technologies and how our interfaces affect us.
Alex and his team of entrepreneur sound-creatives at Epilogue Media are pioneering new and blurry ways of incorporating music and sound into immersive entertainment experiences, notably with live-to-picture orchestra performances of films like Star Trek and Back to the Future, and recently with the immersive blackout sound experience at the Tactile Dome at San Francisco’s Exploratorium.
