Follow the rock-to-tech-to-rock journey of American composer, guitarist, producer and electronics engineer, James Williamson, contrasted with the enduring career of heavy music titan Buzz Osborne of the Melvins. Williamson cemented punk's sound with The Stooges' "Raw Power," but his journey would lead to extensive work as a tech engineer and evangelist. Osborne absorbed punk's legacy and has spent his entire career reinventing it sonically. Together, they'll probe into punk's past, muse on the present and provide varied perspectives on the future of music and technology. Part of the IEEE Technology for Humanity Series.

About SXSW:
Started in 1987, South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences that take place early each year in mid-March in Austin, Texas. SXSW’s original goal was to create an event that would act as a tool for creative people and the companies they work with to develop their careers, to bring together people from a wide area to meet and share ideas. That continues to be the goal today whether it is music, film or interactive technologies.
