Jazz Alum Creates Music of the Future
May 16, 2013 287 0 admin Jazz
Earl Scioneaux lives, musically, in what most would consider two separate worlds. As a recording engineer for Preservation Hall, he works with a trad-jazz ensemble whose sound, in its essence, is more than a hundred years old (and that, the Hall’s many recent identity-stretching collaborations notwithstanding, is usually so analog it’s not even amplified.) On his own time, the pianist and software developer is the electro artist and producer the Madd Wikkid, twiddling knobs and pressing buttons to make music out of ones and zeroes.
