Since I last posted about Sonic Encounters in September I released episodes 008-013 so I thought I'd catch you up on past episodes. I skipped episode 008 in this summary because it was a special Halloween edition that doesn't really fit the vibe of Spring.
Sonic Encounters Podcast 009 – Take a Trip on the Train from Devil’s Gate Depot
Ready to take a “trip” on the The Georgetown Loop Railroad? Your journey starts at Devil’s Gate Depot as you stand between the cars and hear the sounds of this historic narrow gauge train as it rounds a tight bend. Things morph from there… enjoy the psychedelic ride.
Performed on Octatrack using field recordings from The Georgetown Loop Railroad.

Sonic Encounters Podcast 010 – I’m Completely Operational, and All My Circuits Are Functioning Perfectly
The sound of what is going on inside the HAL 9000’s mind as he’s speaking “I’m Completely Operational, and All My Circuits Are Functioning Perfectly” to the crew.
This piece was improvised and performed on the Nord Lead 4 and the Elektron Octatrack. It was recorded in one real-time pass with no edits.

Sonic Encounters Podcast 011 – Swarm of the Nanobots
The swarm of the Nanobots is approaching. This micrtonal mahem is an exploration of swarming notes and joyous distortion that was inspired by the Dewanatron Swarmatron instrument. I performed and recorded this in one real-time pass with no edits on an Elektron Octatrack.

Sonic Encounters Podcast 012 – Tonalities from Orbit #1
I use oscillators rather than samples as sound sources for this piece. The piece is a live improvisation on the Nord Lead 4 using only expressive real-time synthesis around a single original program from INIT.
Sonic Encounters Podcast 013 – Tonalities from Orbit #2
This is the Krell again. We are beaming a 2nd tonality to your station. Are you receiving?
