I chat with Bobby Owsinski about life and music (Podcast)
My guest this week is producer/ engineer Gareth Jones, who’s a pioneer in the use of cutting edge digital equipment, sampling technology, and synthesizers.
Gareth produced five albums for techno innovators Depeche Mode and six albums for synth-pop superstars Erasure, and many more.
As the mixer of John Foxx’s seminal album Metamatic, he realized that an artist could truly define his sound with electronics. Then, as the co-producer of many of Depeche Mode’s greatest works, he helped to create experimental music with global chart appeal.
Trained at the BBC, Gareth got his start recording the best of London 1980’s new wave and industrial artists before he moved to Berlin to work at the legendary Hansa Studios.
During the interview we talked about taking advantage of unforeseen opportunities, his love of modular synthesis, life on the bleeding edge of technology, the appeal Logic Pro, and much more.
