Pierre Bastien

This week, we're This week, we have the privilege of interviewing Pierre Bastien (who will be performing at Mutek on May 31 in Montreal).  In addition to the interview, the show will feature an overview of his music.  Pierre Bastien is probably best known for his hand-made music machines, including robots composed of Meccano parts, which play instruments.  This should be an interesting hour of music...
