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 Junto was 2 minutes long. This is the 20 minute version.

Sevenism has given me permission to post this version in the podcast.

I'm also including a link in the description to Sevenism's discography on Bandcamp and Spotify, which is rather considerable. He's released 32 albums so far in 2018: https://sevenism.bandcamp.com/ and https://open.spotify.com/artist/44vR1rYUxb5tnXqqXOcGFg?si=-iQBGJNoTMO97qdL1WkBAg

Hi, this is Mark Rushton of markrushton.com - thanks for listening to my podcast of original or live ambient and electronic music and field recordings. This is Podcast #140 produced on September 13 of 2018.

For this podcast, I've extended a track I made for the 350th Disquiet Junto, also known as Selected Insomniac Works. The track is called Dohm Rushton. D-O-H-M Rushton.

***

The Assignment: Make very quiet music for very late at night for very fragile psyches.

Step 1: It’s the middle of the night, long past dusk and long before dawn. You can’t sleep.

Step 2: Think about what kind of music you’d want to hear right now — super quiet, super subtle, unlikely to wake you, potentially to ease you back to the comfort of your pillow, or at least to calm your mind.

Step 3: Record the sort of music that Step 2 made you imagine.

If I could program my Marpac Dohm, a white noise generator I use to help me sleep, I'd get it to play some of my own sounds, like what you're hearing now.

Hi, this is Mark Rushton of markrushton.com - thanks for listening to my podcast of original or live ambient and electronic music and field recordings. This is Podcast #139 produced on Friday, August 31 of 2018.

In this podcast, I'm revisiting and extending a piece I made in 2012 for the Disquiet Junto. This was from the fourth Junto, started on January 31st of 2012, and involved remixing sounds from Marcus Fisher's track "Never There", originally released on his 2012 album, Collected Dust.

While I had all the project files that Fisher originally provided, some of the loops I added in 2012 have become lost, and so I had to leave them out. Then I repeated some sections and extended it out to nearly 10 minutes. If you want, you can hear my original remix on SoundCloud - a link is in the description.

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 newsletter, and blog post. It doesn't have to be a big deal. Second, why not? When I started getting into music in the 80s, I was always fascinated by artists who released things under various names.

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.

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.

Coils (Ambient Rushton Podcast 97)

This Road (Ambient Rushton Podcast 90)

This Road is an old track of mine, from 2003, when I was making music with more of a beat.  It has ambient-ish elements throughout.  I still like it and wanted to share it in the podcast with only text presentation.  I have become more comfortable with the idea of this podcast or "audio show" rarely having me talking in the beginning or throughout.  Lately I have been thinking of going back to occasionally making more beat-based music or perhaps even pop songs.  But we'll see...  Keep following that muse, right?

In the summer of 2009, Jon Harnish and I did some outdoor electronic improvisation.  Jon on his bass guitar + effects + Memory Man looper, and me on Xiosynth.  Also playing along are the cicada, crickets, and other outdoor sounds.  Fully improvised, but very chillout all the way.  28 minutes long.  We considered the cicada to be the lead instrument and sort of played around them.  Only one edit in this recording and you'll probably never be able to tell where.

In this podcast, I present tracks I've created for the Disquiet Junto over the past 4 years, along with some background as to how and why they were made.  Some are ambient, some are processed field recordings, some have cut-up, spoken-word pieces, and there's one that might even be called synth pop.  10 tracks in less than 26 minutes.
