Video & Podcast: David Leddy, creator of Susurrus

By Jim Leija

We were totally honored to have David Leddy, the creator of Susurrus, here on our home turf in Ann Arbor for a few days in September.   You might recall he did a little blogging while he was here.

If you’ve seen Susurrus, and you’re still thinking, “but what does it all mean?’  You’re in luck.  While David was here, we captured a Q & A session with him in the Matthaei Botanical Gardens (he was interviewed by UMS Director of Programming Michael Kondziolka).  The interview is in 4 parts on YouTube (I’m embedding the first two parts here).  It’s a fantastic interview, but unfortunately the audio gets a little sketchy in places (so bear with us if you can — this is the first time we’ve done something like this on the UMS Lobby!).

As an added bonus, our friends at EncoreMichigan had the chance to interview David for their podcast, and you can listen to that here

If haven’t had the chance yet to experience Susurrus, it runs through Sunday, October 3, at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens.
