Composer, producer and music supervisor Doug DeAngelis is my guest on the podcast today.
Doug hit paydirt early in his career when he recorded the Nine Inch Nails hit “Head Like A Hole.” In 1989, he embarked on a world tour with the Detroit Techno crossover dance artist Inner City, but after that he moved on to studio work in New York City, where he amassed over 300 album and remix credits, including 31 #1 Billboard Chart singles. Doug’s album credits include New Order, Michael Jackson, Queen Latifa, Chaka Khan, Love and Rockets, Alicia Keys, and No Doubt, among others.
Doug’s career then shifted to Los Angeles where his music was embraced by Hollywood producer Michael Mann as the scorer for his CBS crime drama series Robbery Homicide Division. His music has since appeared in over 100 television shows including CSI, Bones, CSI Miami, and ER, as well as dozens of reality and late night television programs.
Doug is also the Conference Chair and Co-Founder of A3E, The Advanced Audio & Applications Exchange, a leading industry resource dedicated to the future of new music technologies. He’s also involved in an interesting interactive music app called Stylus,
In the interview we talked about the early days synthesizer programming, becoming a mixer in New York City, composing for television, his newly developed Stylus app, and much more.
On the intro I’ll take a look at the latest numbers on music sales from the RIAA, and take an overview at the new USB 3.2 computer ports (and a look at all the other USB ports too).
