On this sponsored episode of the podcast, Ben, Cassidy, and Ryan chat with composer and the live coder Alexandra Cardenas. They chat about how she went from studying music to coding it, the tools and software that let her feel like she’s making music directly with her brain, and the comma that silenced her show for nine tense minutes.
