Welcome to episode 2 of the Luminous podcast. We just finished up the Smode master classes here at the Lumen Labs. There were so many cool people here from all over the country to learn all about this amazing new platform. Tonight I got to hang out with Cynthia Cardenas, a performing visual artist based out of Nashville Tennessee. She tells me about the Nashville new media arts scene and her ongoing collaboration with one of the composers and instrumentalists with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. With a background in music herself, she walks me through the VJ scene in the south and we talk about her background as an artist, the challenges that she’s dealing with as a woman in the scene, and the artistic process as it applies to live performing visual artists.
