T-Bone Burnett speaks to Mojo magazine about electronic instruments and ethical decisions

AWARD-winning record producer and occasional artist T-Bone Burnett spoke to Mojo magazine about his recently released album, 'The Invisible Light: Acoustic Space'. He said, "I started with electric guitar and recording studios from the beginning of my work. When you put a microphone in front of any instrument, it becomes an electronic instrument. Electricity brought light to the world and we need to make ethical decisions about what we do with it. Certainly with nuclear energy and now these digital weapons and artificial technology, we have to consider these dual-use technologies, which ones we pursue and which ones we keep under wraps. Even though it's hard to see, I believe we're moving towards a better world and a better life." CR
