5/27/2018
More
This podcast contains a 27 minute track by my alter ego "Chillout Preservation Collective". It's kind of a dub ambient thing, and rather minimal in nature. Why do I release tracks under pseudonyms? Well, first because it's easy to do in this modern digital era. If I've got something I've made that I think is outside the realm of what I normally do, then I might as release it on it's own.

Those sounds were edited and compiled into Ambient Rushton Podcast 80: http://ambient.libsyn.com/ambient-rushton-podcast-80-walking-near-the-iowa-city-jazz-festival In 2017 I'm back in downtown Iowa City during the Jazz Festival, although in this recording I'm closer to the action, but not too close. Throughout most of this...

The goal was to make recordings that can also be played in the San Francisco gallery where Kallmyer’s work is currently on display as part of the exhibit “Listening Is a Luxury.” Among Kallmyer’s sonic objects made from the St....
