Make: television is honored to welcome the sounds of Keston and Westdal to Make: Day. Their approach involves improvising the arrangements and musical content by combining traditional and nontraditional methods. John Keston is one half of the band and the founder of Audio Cookbook, an awesome resource for sound designers, artists, and anyone who loves to play with sound. We asked John to say more about Keston and Westdal.

Keston and Westdal have been producing and performing since 2000. With help from drummer Joshua Herbst, they roused six thousand music lovers at the Montreal Jazz Festival in July, 2004. As well as performing in prominent venues around the US and Canada, the duo has released three full-length albums, been reviewed in magazines including Signal to Noise, URB, Keyboard, The Book LA, and Minnesota Monthly. They have also been reviewed on dozens of music sites like ScissorKick.com, ProperlyChilled.com, and CalmScape.com.

You may remember John Keston’s experiments with sound editing using Photoshop.
