Music Tectonics

Mar 25, 2021

Make music with the actual sounds from retro 8-bit games, or sample FM radio to add local flavor to your beats. Swedish design and technology company Teenage Engineering packs off-the-wall features like these into portable, powerful gear for music making and listening that looks and feels  good. In this episode, Co-founder /VP David Möllerstedt explores Teenage Engineering’s origin story and the inspiration behind the playful things they make: tiny, inexpensive Pocket Operators, the candy-like, highly functional OP-1 synthesizer, wild collaborations with Cheap Monday, IKEA, and Baidu, and more. Dig into the design philosophy that makes Teenage Engineering’s products attractive, innovative, and functional. What makes Stockholm such a creative hub for music gear and software? Which up and coming innovations are getting David excited for the future of music making? Listen for a chance to talk back and win one of host Dmitri Vietze’s favorite books!
