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. Created just after Chuck's would-be 60th birthday and a little more than 11 years after his death.

Chuck Bird was an early internet friend due a mutual appreciation of British guitarist Bill Nelson and other artists.  Chuck coordinated and produced fan-created compilation albums of numerous artists, not just Bill Nelson.  We talked regularly on the phone and met once for dinner when I lived in Houston in 1997 and his work schedule brought him to town.

Bradley Charles "Chuck" Bird was born November 11, 1957. He died in Nashville, Tennessee after a 30 year battle with diabetes at the age of 49 on November 14, 2006. He graduated from San Pedro High School in 1975.

He's at www.findagrave.com/memorial/65484618 - Green Hills Memorial Park Rancho Palos Verdes, Los Angeles County, California, USA - Plot Sunrise Slope 193, D - Memorial ID 65484618

This podcast is a two track preview of the new release by Ambient Matyk, a long-running side group I've had with bass guitarist Jon Harnish and other guests. The new album is called Cerebral Night and it was recorded on August 12th of 2017 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Following the Cerebral Night tracks, I play 5 older tracks by Ambient Matyk, going as far back as 2005. All were recorded live and completely improvised.

While "Cerebral Night" is on all streaming services and digital download retailers, I have it at Bandcamp for "name your own price", so if you want to download it for free, you can. You can also download all the other Ambient Matyk releases in the same manner, except for the one of them where I had to make it at least a dollar.

In 2015, I walked around downtown Iowa City, where I live, to capture sounds on the perimeter of the Iowa City Jazz Festival, which occurs every 4th of July weekend.  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 recording you can hear parts of the act playing at the time, although in most situations the dominant audio are crowd sounds, people walking and eating, and the general hustle and bustle of nightlife on nearby streets.

The picture used here is one I took at the Iowa City Jazz Festival in 2000, when my wife and I attended, but it was in a different location (and a much smaller event back then) and the headliner was Bill "the world's slowest guitarist" Frisell.  He was excellent.

For this week's Disquiet Junto, the project was to make ambient recordings based on source audio from the artist Chris Kallmyer. He recorded the music using bells and bowls he constructed from clay sourced on the banks of the Mississippi River in St. Louis.

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. Louis clay are ceramic bowls. When making a piece of music from the source audio I was asked do the following: (A) use no additional source audio, (B) aim for a sound that is just as gentle as the source audio, (C) consider using stereo effects to reflect the circular shape of the bowls.

So I made this piece, and I think it fits in with the instructions for the Disquiet Junto.  I made a 3 minute version and published it on Soundcloud, but that was extracted from the 22 minute version heard here.

No talking in this podcast.  Just 30 minutes of wind and wind chimes, along with some bird sounds, water drip sounds, road sounds, and, near the end, the University of Iowa Power Plant steam whistle after traveling a few miles in the breeze.
