Femi Flaming, better known by his artist persona of Sadnoise, is an architecture student at RISD with a focus on acoustics and programming sound. For the past 5 years, he’s been making experimental electronic music, starting mostly by making house and overtime evolving into designing his own sounds as opposed to using samples. 

If you missed it, Sadnoise recently graced the Blast Radio airwaves as part of our Summer Series. On the broadcast he played music from his previous and upcoming release, as well as some songs that have heavily influenced the music he is interested in creating recently. He talked about gear, the importance of modular synthesis in his production workflow, and its relation to the idea of data birds.
