I can’t believe that it’s been nearly two months since I last posted here, but that’s certainly not because there hasn’t been anything going on. Teag and PK have begun playing shows again and we’ve also started work on our first full-length recording, and then there’s the Ambient Soundbath podcast.
The Ambient Soundbath podcast is something that I’ve been thinking about doing for a long time and it was something that seemed really ambitious. However, after experimenting with the process I figured that I could probably make a go of it and started with a soft launch of www.ambientsoundbath.com in September. Each episode is approximately :30 minutes and features my original music – none of this music has been released anywhere else. I do think that I may start to include the work of other artists if they’re interested, so feel free to contact me if you are. Currently, I have about 10 solid hours of music or about 20 episodes wrapped up and the response has been quite good.
Because I’ve always approached ambient music as a sort of immersive sound bath experience, where I allow myself to be enveloped by the sound I wanted to put together something like an infinite playlist radio program or something, ala SomaFM’s Drone Zone or Sleepbot, but wasn’t ready to get into that. The Ambient Soundbath also intersected with my pursuit of alternative approaches to a record release model. After watching the immense growth and media acceptance of podcasting, that mode just seemed to make sense. So with that the Ambient Soundbath Podcast is full-steam ahead… Please forward me any comments or thoughts you have on the podcast.
