Musician Zach Heiligman, better known as Reazon, called in to talk about his new, collaborative music project, DAE, which just put out a music video for the song Where We’re Going, animated using the digital audio workstation Pro Tools.

Reazon talked about the philosophy behind DAE, the painstaking (and long) process of making the Where We’re Going video, and more.
