Episode 17: Aaron Jay Myers

November 16, 2017

The Original Gravity Podcast explores modern music, modern beer, and the people behind these arts. In this episode, hosts Keith Kirchoff and Greg Carlson chat with composer Aaron Jay Myers about his work, his history with punk rock and improvisation, his drive to be a composer, and the almost spiritual impact music has on him. We listen to three of Aaron's works, including music from his old punk band Mad Max, his current band Zyzzyx, and a recent duet for two violins: For The World Is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky. Greg then determines exactly what beer would pair with Aaron's work.
