Tech Talk: Inside Joshua Eustis / Telefon Tel Aviv’s Sound Lab

Telefon Tel Aviv, on, Videostill

We take a look at Joshua Eustis’ tech techniques.

Telefon Tel Aviv has one of the most intense sound palettes in electronic music: atmospheric, emotive, swirling and intricate, all at the same time. It’s striking, then, that surviving member Joshua Eustis, who also records as Sons Of Magdalene and Second Woman, has such a deceptively simple set-up. He works from Ableton Live, via a seven year old laptop, with Max MSP as a further tool. It’s a sound lab built to be mobile. 

For this episode of Tech Talk, Telekom Electronic Beats TV spoke to him about his sonic imagination and the equipment and techniques he uses to realize it.
