I met James many years ago during the many years I tended bar in Pittsburgh. During the creation of this site I sent out a call on Facebook about needing some musical assistance and he answered the call. A musician and composer, James is crafting something for your ears in the next couple months... a theme song if you will. He also had a LOT of good advice about sound editing and recording for me that we discussed at my place on a very snowy Pittsburgh afternoon. Soon, we started chatting about Pennsylvania liquor laws and I was compelled to turn on the mic. What is captured here is a really thoughtful and just fucking cool discussion about art. Warning! I am just getting over a cold in this interview.
Check out James in the ELCO Orchestra on the Facebook at www.facebook.com/elco.orchestra.
