Amazing windows into the minds of musicians

Hard to decide what’s more fascinating — hearing musicians discuss their experiences of sound and the sonic world, or hearing the soundscapes they create to represent that experience. The compositions on their own seem like they’d make a killer playlist. I feel I’m listening to a conversation I’ve never really heard before.

A really fresh approach

This is such a new and unique approach to storytelling. I can’t stop listening (lol) and can’t wait for more episodes.
