Welcome to The Sleeping At Last Podcast! My name's Ryan O'Neal, I make music under the name "Sleeping At Last." Nice to meet you! This podcast is an evolution of my ongoing series of "How It Was Made" blog posts, in which I dissect and explain how my songs take shape, one song at a time. In this podcast, I'll be talking about my creative process, the intention and thought behind my songs - what they mean to me and why I did what I did. I'll also debut some new songs on here! That's the plan, but I'm brand new to this whole Podcast planet, so who knows! In any case, if you're curious about how my music gets made, I'd be so honored for you to take a listen. Love, Ryan

    "December 21, 2020: The Great Conjunction"

    "December 21, 2020: The Great Conjunction"

    In this episode, I talk through the making of a new song from scratch. Each day of the process, the writing and un-writing of a new piece of music called, "December 21, 2020: The Great Conjunction", inspired by the "Great Junction" astronomical event, where we get to see Saturn and Jupiter appear the closest to each other in 800 years... on Dec. 21st, the Winter Solstice, no less. This piece of music belongs to "Astronomy", an ongoing series of songs, which are kind of like soundtracks to cool stuff happening in the Universe around us.
