Artists discuss the 13 records that shaped their lives

On their most recent album Rob and Sean have given us over four hours of music, which is very generous of them. Its always interesting listening to how their sound has slowly developed over the years. They are very secretive about their processes, but I would imagine their music is created entirely on the computer using some unique software platform, possibly created inside MAX or Kyma, or Reaktor. These are sound creation platforms where you can create your own complete environment, covering sound sources, effects, composition, mixing and everything you can imagine. You can design your own world and create anything imaginable, but interestingly they all have their own ‘sound’, meaning that the software itself imparts something of itself onto your music. Regardless of how they do it, they have an amazing ear for creating baffling and inspiring music
