    Rob Watson Media Podcast 006 – December in Leicester

    I’ve spent more time this week wandering around Leicester city centre, watching people and looking for sounds and images. I’ve put together a music playlist from the tracks that I’ve been hearing while I’ve been out and about. The weather has been cold, and the short days make everything look gloomy. I’m not a winter person. Once the Christmas period is over I always feel better. The promise of longer days and more sunlight. In the meantime I’ll keep drinking plenty of coffee.

    Michael Kiwanuka – Hero

    Four Tet – There is Love in You

    Rob Watson Media Podcast 004 – Impressions and Sounds Bangkok

    Rob Watson Media Podcast 004 – Impressions and Sounds Bangkok

    I’ve just been mooching around the centre of Bangkok for the last couple of days, and while I walk about I’m wearing noise cancelling headphones and listening to music. The constant rumble of traffic is very difficult to escape from, and occasionally I’ve been able to find a location or a route that is away from the road. So I’ve been piecing together a playlist that has felt close to my mood, or even the opposite of my mood, and has taken me elsewhere as I squeeze on the Sky Train or flow down an escalator on the Metro.

    Opposite the apartment where I’m staying is a demolition site, and the sound carries over from it. The work starts at 8am and finishes around 8pm. It’s incessant, but they are doing a very quick job of tearing down the concrete building that previously stood there. No doubt a new building will go up just a quickly.

    I’ll try and be a bit more inventive with the sounds I collect this week. In the shopping malls there is invariably music playing, on the Sky Train there is usually a screen with adverts playing. And everywhere else there is the constant sound of traffic. In ten years time, when hydrogen and electric vehicles are common, Bangkok is going to be an eerie place to be. If it ever falls silent, I wonder how people will react?

    Rob Watson Media Podcast 002 – Arriving in Thailand

    Rob Watson Media Podcast 002 – Arriving in Thailand

    I’ve been in Bangkok for a couple of days now, and I wanted to stay out of the heat in the afternoon, so I’ve put together a podcast with some thoughts and a few tracks. I’ve recorded it in the apartment I’m staying in, so the audio quality isn’t great. I actually used my phone with a lavalier microphone. I’m aiming to do some sound capture while I’m here as well, but for this first podcast, its just a quick one.

    Tracks:

    Moby – Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad

    Lalo Schrifin – Midnight Courier (from Mission Impossible).

    Ed Harcourt – When Americans Come to London

    Neil Hannon – So Long and Thanks for All the Fish (from HHGTTG Movie)

    Electreline – At Sea

    Robert Glasper Experiment – Black Radio

    Big Search – Lonely Mound of Clay (from Resistance Radio – Music from Man in the High Castle)

    Rob Watson Podcast 001 – Test, Testing, Testing…

    Rob Watson Podcast 001 – Test, Testing, Testing…

    It’s a while since I’ve done a music podcast, and I’m banging this out just to test the new and upgraded website. The hardest thing is to get all of the subsiduary links and connections working, and iTunes Podcast Conneect is not the easiest thing to use.

    That said, the music in this podcast includes The Beatles, The Velvet Undersground, Moon Due, Pet Shop Boyts and a few others.

    Leave a comment or tweat and tell me what you think. Does it sound okay? Are the edits okay? Do I talk a load of random nonsense – well, two out of three can’t be bad!
