Each episode is an original mix of music that borrows from ambient, electronic, atmospheric, blues, and rock genres.
In October of 1957, Russia launched the first satellite into space. I was born about 25 years later, which was plenty of time to get people to the moon and back, and inspire tons of kids to dream about space. I was one of those kids.
For me, the idea of space is certainly romanticized. But, in a real sense, it lets us do two important things. 1. Dream about what exists beyond our atmosphere. 2. Come together here on Earth to accomplish incredible things and celebrate them.
I wrote this for a special person who is going through a lot right now. I can't be with her in person, but there's a lot that you can say through a simple song.
I can't believe that I wrote this song 17 years ago. At the time, I was studying in college, preparing to take a semester abroad. I knew that things would change. I would leave, and friends would graduate and go on to do amazing things.
EP-012 revisits the original instrumentation and smooths it out. To fit in here, I gave it more of an ambient twist.
About fourteen years ago I wrote a song that only four people heard. I thought it had promise, but with "life stuff" I stopped work on it. This week as I was starting into the episode I decided to rework it. I may release the actual track at some point, but for now I hope you enjoy this ambient/drone mix of it.
This mix reminds me of the ocean, and how sometimes currents can take us to places we would never have imagined.
A couple of days before I started work on EP-009, I caught a video where Adam Neely breaks down The Girl From Ipanema. As a result, this mix is deeply inspired by Bossa Nova, but also includes influences from Massive Attack, and Ambient Rock Music.
