Thomas Dolby on Science Friday

Thomas Dolby is a technological pioneer. Dolby developed the speaker system in over 3,000,000,000 cell phones, along with these famous ringtones:

In an interview with Ira Flatow, from NPR's Science Friday, Dolby had this to say:

"I see toys and devices as a means to an end, really. It's all about the music at the end of the day...There are geeks who care a lot about how music is made, but at the end of the day when you hear a great piece of music or a lovely melody or a lovely voice, it communicates with you on an emotional level and it transcends the technology that was used to create it."

Listen to the interview here.

Keep writing,


PS - By the way, I attended an extremely informative luncheon at NSAI yesterday. There are some exciting things coming in the form of new legislation that will allow more songwriters to get publishing deals. Stay tuned...
