Keyboard - Oct - 2012 - Gotye
With "Somebody that I Used to Know" hitting number one on dozens of charts worldwide and selling over six million copies in the U.S. alone, Gotye has become the sort of international superstar one rarely sees in pop music anymore. Behind this are serious hands-on production chops, which can be heard all over his stellar album Making Mirrors. He gives up sonic secrets---and talks about man-eating Lowrey organs---in this rare Keyboard interview.
Then, after a seven-year hiatus, Garbage returns with a new album. Butch Vig and Duke Erikson talk about the ways in which sound design and songwriting blur together in their creative process.
Miles Robertson tells us what's involved in playing keyboards and directing the band for Grammy-sweeping anti-diva Adele.
