Artificial Intelligence and Electronic Music
This week we will reflect on how artificial intelligence is influencing music culture. People's ability to learn from each other, from teacher to student, from mentor to novice, is how we build knowledge and transmit culture.
Electronic Music Second Generation
This week we take a look at the second generation of electronic music artists. Standing on the shoulders of giants like Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream and Wendy Carlos, a decade later these artists were marrying a dyi-punk ethos with the widespread availability of synths.
This week we’ll look at Anima Mundi or the ‘Soul of the World’. Thought to be a vital force that permeates the world, the Anima Mundi is believed to be the feminine creative power of God.
15th Anniversary Podcast
This week we will celebrate our Crystal or 15th anniversary of podcasting independent Downtempo Music and Artists. Looking back I am happy to report most continue to make music or have a presence on the web. We will hear from six artists from our freshman year who, 15 years later, are still going strong.
The Luminescence of Candles
This week we’ll look at the luminescence of candles, of wax and tallow. Mostly used in celebrations and ceremonies these days, candles brought light to the darkness for early lives constrained by the rising and setting of the sun. It meant extra hours beyond daily work to gather, socialize and create. Candles lit the way and we followed.
This week we will focus on mind wandering. When your attention drifts from the task at hand. Most of us feel this mild disassociation routinely. When you feel a million miles away. While it can be distracting daydreaming can lead to more creativity through decoupling and self reflection. We will hear six tracks that exhibit some of this dreamlike quality including Red Wine Riots, Aphilas, Dreza, Eva Schlegel, Azoora and Just Banks.
In my heart from the day I discovered it
Many many years ago I stumbled upon this podcast, when podcast was something quite new to me and to the world. I’m very glad that I can browse Nye’s complete legacy here. Golden, golden.
2nd Coolest podcast you've never heard of
I'm also a long time listener. Where they find these mind blowing songs is beyond me. Yes. Headphones are recommended.
This is a most wonderful podcast
Can’t believe there are so few ratings. I’ve been listening to Jim Nye for years, and was saddened when he had to take a break for illness. Now he’s back and the music is a perfectly curated as ever! Fantastic!
