McKay, What Do Red Beats Sound Like? on MISSION:MUSIC Podcast

In Mission:Music’s 14th episode, the guys talk to McKay who, among many other projects, has helped produce for Great Highway. The four get into what it’s like for McKay to produce and help musicians record remotely, how the iPad is revolutionizing sound design, and finding visual artists for music videos. In between, we get to hear some of McKay’s production talents with other musicians as well as his solo work.

Mission:Music is hosted by Stefan Aronsen of Balanced Breakfast, Jason Hunter of Great Highway, and Cory Zechmann of Silence Nogood.

 BIO

McKay Garner is a relentless explorer of sound and music. To help shape his personal perspective of music, McKay has hacked existing instruments and musical interfaces to make new ways to create or control sound through countless trips to the hardware store. His live shows often include warping traditional ways of playing drums, keyboard, and wind instruments, as well as using his own custom-built hardware or software instruments and controllers to create or manipulate notes, effects, and more. Some audience favorites are the drumbot, The Wheel, and this year will surely be the Sousafauxn! McKay studied music at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and plays several instruments. He spent many years playing drums for other artists and is a veteran recording and mixing engineer, producer, composer, and sound designer. McKay often combines field recordings, found sounds, and his own personal acoustic recordings with synthesizers, samplers, live and programmed beats, and processed sounds to make pieces of music or sound collages that keep ears and emotions engaged. His live and recorded music can contain both planned and randomly generated musical events in varying degrees.
