Learning Outside The Classroom: Electronic Artist Michna

Adrian Michna learned the trombone as a child, which led to experiments with electronic sounds (for example, gently squeezing a friend's cat to generate a squeak) and now to an established career as a DJ and electronic musician. Here, he shares his perspective on what makes a good song, how college transformed his musical style, and advice for young musicians. Have a listen!

Michna live at work during a 2013 tour in which he built a portable music set-up that fit into two custom suitcases. Using two tiny projectors shooting into mirrors and reflecting onto the weather balloons, he placed a strobe underneath his DJ table that was triggered with his foot, while projecting footage of each city that he had shot earlier that day onto the balloons.
