We Need No Swords podcast 23: Petridisch vocaloid session


When I heard Petridisch’s amazing Classical Vocaloid cassette earlier this year, I was blown away by its mysterious retro-futurist vibrations. I couldn’t quite figure out how he was getting those dreamy, neo-anime sounds – was it synth, sampler, vocoder, or something else?

So I asked him to come on the show and talk us through his unique style of music-making. He also put together an exclusive mix of vocaloid and synth jams, which plays out in the second half of the programme. Thanks man!

But before that, there’s a short mix of recent experimental releases to get you in the mood. Enjoy!
