VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Jared Spiegelhoff
Our Music Director, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
Today, Ben talks with composer and improviser Jared Spiegelhoff, whose most recent release is a compilation of pieces from 2017-2019 available on Bandcamp. He recently graduated from the music composition school at UWM. They discussed Jared’s early inspirations from video game soundtracks, making breakcore in high school, his collaborative “One Minute of Chaos” project, his gratefulness for the UWM program, and a new project he’s getting started with.
