Hi, I'm Michael Carmody, co-founder of the Donut Whole. Over the years I have also been known for my work as a writer, editor, designer, visual artist, composer and musician. I was asked by Wichita Art Museum to participate in its ongoing Art Chatter series, which features a variety of speakers in PechaKucha format — each presenter shows 20 slides, and gets only 20 seconds to speak on each. I chose as my subject matter 20 records that helped shape me as a person, or in some way guided my artistic sensibilities over the years. This is by no means a definitive list, as it leaves out entire genres of music that are hugely important to me, but it's too much to cover in six minutes, 40 seconds.
