In a recent New York Times interview, Gillis shared a few interesting and techy tidbits from his career. Find out more after the break.
On showing up to play a gig with just a laptop:
"Some people were open-minded, but in a lineup of bands about to perform and you're the only person with a laptop, you're definitely the sore thumb of the group."
On his job:
"I actually think of what I do more as creating electronic music, not being a D.J., because it is all created on my computer; it's also very mathematical."
"I perform using Panasonic Toughbooks, and when I'm on stage I wrap my computers in Saran Wrap."
On digital music downloads:
"But this last album we didn't even give people the option to pay, we just gave it away online and we completely skipped the physical CD. It really seemed like the most efficient way to reach a broad audience."
