Falling Midnight Sevenism (Ambient Rushton Podcast 141)

9/21/2018
More
I had to consider what edges the music has that might be smoothed out, what drama it has that might be subsumed. I was to consider how I might do such things while retaining something that is inherently listenable. So I reworked Sevenism's track "midnight solo (falling leaf) disquiet0350" - (a link to that track is in the description) https://soundcloud.com/7777777777/midnight-solo-falling-leaf-disquiet0350 which was mostly quiet piano playing The version I posted for the 351st Disquiet...

Encryption Key (Ambient Rushton Podcast 136)

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. I'll tell a small number of people following along about it, whether it be via podcast or my email...

This is a a live, 10 minute remix of my track "Chuck Bird" (the original is on my 2008 album "Flow") using the iOS program Samplr.

Chuck Bird was an early internet friend due a mutual appreciation of British guitarist Bill Nelson and other artists.
