Ep. 10 - "Saviors"
Thirty-fourth piece recorded by The Raconteur. The Historical Recordings of the Raconteur, brought to you by The Project in association with the Universal Cohort of Theoretical Histories and the Ecumenical Education Endeavor, will be on a short hiatus after this episode. Additional recordings are being decoded every day, but the difficult and laborious work does require time. We have been eternally grateful to all who have listened, and those who have a thirst for knowledge of the past. Be...
Ep. 9 - "The Correspondence of Parallels"
Thirteenth piece recorded by The Raconteur. We here at The Project have been so pleased to be able to share these historical recordings with the public. While there are some schools of thought that disregard the study of history, often citing that ridiculous adage uttered by that charlatan [REDACTED], "Today cannot be lighted by yesterday's sun," we believe that without understanding that which came before, we are at risk of falling victim to avoidable calamity. We hope that our efforts...
Ep. 8 - "Man-Made Paradise"
Twenty-ninth recording of The Raconteur. Our illustrious Curator has come to formulate a theory about The Raconteur, but remains a very guarded and empirically minded individual, refusing to share without proper evidence to support it. While the other members of The Project spend hours in speculative discussion, Curator simply looks on with a sly smirk. But we all can't help but wonder: Who was the man called The Raconteur? And who gave him that name? "It's a remarkable thing how the most...
Ep. 7 - "Tara Salt's Child"
Twelfth piece recorded by The Raconteur. We still know next to nothing about the "Inimitable Masako" to which The Raconteur always refers. We aren't sure if it was a era, a country, a city, or a person. But it is clear that he had a great reverence for the music they created, which is apt, as the ability to create music has become such a universally recognized requirement for greater intelligence. "It is natural that a babe should suckle of its mother. For a mother is naturally gifted with...
Ep. 6 - "The Abyss"
Sixteenth recording of The Raconteur. This episode gives us our first glimpse of The Raconteur himself. It also hints at an event that seems to be of some great importance to him, and perhaps the time in which he lived. "Man's capacity for evil is so much greater than he would ever allow himself to realize. And it is this very denial that allows it to reach such unfathomable fathoms." The Inimitable Masako - https://geo.itunes.apple.com/us/album/masako/id516646114?mt=1&app=music...
Ep. 3 - 'The Wolf, The Spider, and The Zebra'
Fourth piece recorded by The Raconteur. It's been difficult trying to pinpoint when exactly these recordings were made, much less where. All we currently do know is that we've found no piece of digital data that post-dates these recordings anywhere in the world. "Where should one's loyalty lie? Should one lie to maintain that loyalty? In the end, the marriage of lies and loyalty begets not merely discord, but devastation." The Inimitable Masako -...
Ep. 1 - "The Parade Soldier"
Time stamp data indicates that this is chronologically the second piece recorded by The Raconteur, yet placed first in his order. The data recovered from the ancient satellite of the first recording is corrupted. "It is natural for a man who is short of stature to climb upon the shoulders of greater men to seem taller. In the end though, he fools no one but himself, and looks all the smaller for it." The Inimitable Masako -...
