Much more interesting than an interview!

Really dynamic, short episodes. Really let’s you explore the music as well as the words of the composers. Such a neat format!

~ Violet ~ ,

So Worth It

How I Make Music is a series of standalone sound experiences. It is also a great addition to the Audio Drama community. I’ve found some new audio dramas by listening to this show, and found new appreciation for shows I had already discovered. But more than that, I’ve had a thoroughly trippy, nerve tingling, mood influencing, thought provoking time. Love how the interview melts away and it’s as if each composer is talking directly to the audience. Great show!

B.P.Schuler ,

An Audio drama how to choose your own adventure

Very interesting concept in the words of the composers themselves. John takes the time to edit himself out and make each artist their own host. Great place to find other things to listen to as each episode is like a trailer for other works of art so you end up branching out. Excellent work 👍
