On the intersection between digital and analog sound – with musician Nat Fowler

For Nat Fowler, aka Novo Line, creating his latest album “Dyad” was a sort of experiment, or game: could he produce tracks that work at both 33rpm and 45rpm?

Besides encouraging people to buy vinyl, Fowler’s approach as an artist plays with the intersection between digital and analog sound, from his choice to use ‘archaic’ computer algorithms when sketching out ideas, to working exclusively with older production equipment. Marlene Melchior reports.
