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?

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.
