Season 2 of Sonic Encounters Soundscapes Podcast Underway

Each episode contains original improvisational soundscapes and songs created with synthesis and sampling to capture, disassemble, reassemble, and shape the sounds around us. Episodes are usually story-driven so check the episode notes for hints as to what’s going on with each individual piece.

I also make original cover art for each episode which can be viewed in the Soundcloud version. For example, Season 2 kicks of with with a new track called “The Department of Entropy”.

In a deep dark corner of universe, ancient bureaucrats monitor and nudge the machinery that controls the decay of the all things. Sometimes they dance. Welcome to the Department of Entropy.

Episode Notes Now Embedded in Podcast + Buy Button

I also streamlined the podcast and instead of using a companion blog for episode notes – I took the time to place all the show notes within the podcast episodes pages on Soundcloud instead (which also should feed your podcatcher).

Catching Up With Sonic Encounters Podcast – Episodes 009-013

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.

You can listen/subscribe to the Podcast in iTunes, or use this RSS Feed for your favorite podcatcher. You can listen using the embedded players below or on SoundCloud.

Sonic Encounters Podcast 009 – Take a Trip on the Train from Devil’s Gate Depot

Listen on SoundCloud

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

010 I'm Completely Operational, and All My Circuits Are Functioning Perfectly-cover

Listen on SoundCloud 

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

011 Swarm of the Nanobots cover

Listen on SoundCloud

 

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

012 Tonalities from Orbit #1-cover

Listen on SoundCloud

 

This is the Krell. We are beaming tonalities to your station. Are you receiving? This is another piece inspired by the ground-breaking work of Louis and Bebe Barron on the film Forbidden Planet

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.

Show notes are here https://markmoshermusic.com/2016/04/05/sonic-encounters-podcast-012-tonalities-from-orbit-1.

Sonic Encounters Podcast 013 – Tonalities from Orbit #2
