“Lost And Sound is a podcast series bringing the stories of people who make exciting innovative music from across the world to your ears.”
When did music first come into your life? Who was there and how did you feel? Where did that moment or period of time lead to?
These are some of the questions answered by guests of the Lost And Sound podcast, hosted by Paul Hanford. The podcast features a far-flung list of guests yet hones in on innovation and creative process. Listeners will discover personal conversations with well and lesser-known artists from various genres of music, all of whom speak to their individual influences and creativity.
In this episode of MetaPod, Paul talks about the evolution of the Lost And Sound podcast and its backdrop, the city of Berlin. Paul also explains his interest in the human, rather than technical, aspects of music and how those feed the identity of people and places.
We also learn about when music first came into Paul’s life. Did we mention that Paul might be the only DJ that moved to Berlin to stop being a DJ?
