Episode 3: ROBOT, TEACH US TO GROOVE - with Efraín Rozas [replay]

We have a new bonus episode coming up later this month, but until then check out some past episodes you may have missed. ROBOT, TEACH US TO GROOVE was first published in March 2019. This episode features Efraín Rozas,  Peruvian-born, Brooklyn-based  performer/composer and robotics/software  developer interested in new  paradigms of cognitive technologies and  mythologies. He leads the  psychedelic salsa group La Mecánica Popular, fusing groove-based Latin music with electronic and experimental  explorations. Rozas' Myth and  Prosthesis series utilizes software programming and robotics to produce sound installations and music, deploying Latin American influences and  modern technology to uproot Western concepts and mind/body duality. We discuss all these projects and more, including the role of NYC in the history of Salsa, and the future of electronic Latinx music to come. Sound  Propositions the podcast has the same mission statement as the written  Sound Propositions features: to share in depth discussions with  artists whose work we love, to delve into the details  of their creative  practice.
