#137 What’s in Your IPod?

Editor’s Note: IPods were still somewhat of a thing when this was taped.  We swear.

We know composers spend a lot of time alone wrestling with their sonic muse but, when they’re not composing what are they listening to? What music is currently inspiring them? How does it influence their own music? We’ll ask established and emerging composers alike to tell us what’s in their iPod, and why.
