My guest today is Rikkert Achtereekte, customer director of sales and electronic musician. Rikkert works for the IT engineering company Schuberg Philis, which focuses on mission-critical processes. And Rikkert is a composer and performer of electronic music and gets together with some friends for a bi-monthly improvisation session on modular synthesizers.
Rikkert shares insights about his company that builds solutions for business problems, for example, with a collaborative approach they call ‘system in the room’. And they are pretty successful in what they are doing; they now got the Giarte XLA award for the 16th time. And he shares with us his modular strategies and a workshop lab setting where he uses modular synthesizers to let people collaborate better and be more creative.
And precisely, that way of thinking – giving output and receiving input in a connected system of elements – is the essence of the Music Thinking Framework, with all the cues connected.
So if you are at home or in the office while you hear this, you might want to download the framework first and then listen to this episode about modular strategies. But if you listen to it while driving a car or walking in nature, relax and enjoy the conversation with many life sounds from a modular synthesizer that Rikkert brought to the show.
