Caleb Hawkins Talks Music & Open Source

The Screening Room

Open source attracts some of the most wonderfully creative people. I learned this when video interviewing a longtime open source buddy of mine, Caleb Hawkins, a singer/songwriter in Indianapolis, Indiana. I met Caleb online via our shared interest in the Inkscape vector drawing program. Only after I met him did I learn of the neat ways he uses other open source programs, such as Audacity and Ardour. Meet Caleb in this video interview.

Check out a gorgeous poster Caleb created (in Inkscape) for his upcoming performance at The Coffee Peddlar in Harrison, Ohio. Caleb tells me he doesn’t print his posters at home – but rather takes them on a USB Flash to a business service store to print on a high quality printer.

Do you know someone in the creative fields using open source tools? Send me their name and email address – and I’ll spotlight some of them here on FOSS Force.
