So you wanna be a rock ’n’ roll star? Well listen now to what I say. Just get a haptic device, wave your arms around and make music — you won’t even have to take some time to learn how to play.

It’s true — the next generation of portable music-making gadgets will let people use body movements and intuitive gestures to create professional-sounding songs quickly and easily. Is this progress or sacrilege? Can it be used for good? And can you hate this while still digging the Theremin in Good Vibrations? These are just some of the questions Eric Alper and I tackle in today’s episode of Sonic Reducers. Listen in as we talk about these new gizmos, launch our own plans to cash in on the trend, and watch Eric have an old-man snit about kids these days. Sonic Reducers. One topic. Two music nerds. Five minutes. Everything you need to know.
