Still working...

Tue, 28 Aug 2007 18:07:53 PDT

I had fully anticipated having some music to put in your ears by now, but it seems I'm still working to make that happen. Fear not, for I have not given up hope and neither should you. I have decided to start writing new music and will impregnate it with Sounds both old and new.

Oh, and it seems the world is a brighter place these days... Babe the Blue Ox seem to be making new music. Life is very good.



Holy Snikes, It's Been a LONG Time Gone!

After needing a long break after wearing myself out from doing a daily podcast, I'm back to start anew with Sound of the Day! The dailies are probably not going to be part of the new plan, but I do want to start promoting sounds and creating new songs.

I think the first item on my "get back in the saddle" agenda is going to be to gather together all the theme songs written for the Sound of the Day podcast and make them available to everyone as a loop for you to use on your own projects with outtakes (if and when they are available and interesting). BTW: If you end up liking any of these works, let me know. If you have need of a theme song for your podcast or other project, drop me a line and I'm sure we can work something out.

Watch this space for updates in the next couple of days including the first few themes available (as mentioned above) for download and the usual open CC licensing.



Sound of the Day Podcast - Things are a-changing!

Mon, 30 Oct 2006 04:24:01 PST

As you might have noticed with all the previously-released Sounds and lag times between posting dates and reality, Sound of the Day in its current state has been coming (lurching?) to an end. But that doesn't mean that it's going away... Oh no no no, heavens no!

We're currently under a process of rejuvenation and reinvention that will most likely mean fewer podcasts per month, but more focused energies and enthusiasm for the podcasting genre. We're not sure exactly what form the new show will take, but we have some great ideas. One thing is certain: our dedication to fresh new Sounds and music will always be at the core of our overriding mission for this show.

We appreciate your patience as we retool and rethink our approach to podcasting. To people who have been listening since December 2004, those who just started listening recently, and everyone in between, we are truly grateful and look forward to coming back with newfound focus and dedication in the coming months. At this point, we anticipate being back online sometime in early 2007... hopefully January. In the mean time, we'll be working on bringing all the archives online and will take time to check in and see how everyone's doing from time to time.

Thanks again, as always, for listening, and here's to a fresh start and new tomorrows!

Another day into our retrospective exploration of Sound of the Day podcasts gone by with the April 2005 theme from European New Age artist J Anderstein. This theme, in its original unexpurgated form caused quite a backlash when it first appeared. A few people posted very negatively about it as if a temporary shift into a mellow style of music was the end of the world... or at least the end of podcasting as we knew it. We were just glad they cared enough to be upset.

People familiar with odd musical instruments and emergency rooms may have an easier time recognizing the Sound of the Day podcast sound for today. Now that hint should be enough to confuse anyone. If you don't recognize it, just listen with an open mind and the answer may swing your way...
