Coils (Ambient Rushton Podcast 97)

Record the sound of a refrigerator (and make something of it...) - not only did I make a track for the 224th Disquiet Junto, I created 2 expanded versions and 4th track that has beats and bass on top.  This podcast plays a couple of those tracks and I talk about the steps in making it.

Morning Music (Ambient Rushton Podcast 95)

The Assignment for Disquiet Junto 0221: Compose something — quiet, peaceful, refreshing — you’d want to wake up to.  I chose bird song with a mild drone in the background.  The original version was a little under 5 minutes, limited by the rules of the assignment.  This version is over 12 minutes, so I can take longer to wake up.  The birds get more active as the piece progresses.  I talk about this piece at the end of the podcast.

Processed Office (Ambient Rushton Podcast 91)

In the past I've always said I make music and sounds to help me concentrate through my daily work as a software tester.  For this audio show I take it a step further and use actual sounds of me working on my laptop at a standing kiosk in my office, located near a large printer/copier.  The recording was processed a bit to disguise voices and to lower the pitch of my keyboarding.  A touch of reverb was added and I played with some EQ settings.

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?
