Hypnagogue Podcast 3

90 minutes of ambient & electronic music.




A little different approach this time--you'll enjoy tracks from a selection of Hypnagogue Highly Recommended CDs.


There's a little warble in my voice on this episode, probably the result of trying to convince Audacity that my tinny little microphone was a stereo device... But as always, the music sounds great.

This podcast is a little longer than the last two. I got talky...

Enjoy. Comments welcome.

peace & power,
John

Hypnagogue Podcast 2

A fresh 90 minutes of ambient & electronic music, from upbeat to downtempo.

Enjoy.

peace & power,
John

PS: I'm aware that my voice is slightly overmodulated in this podcast and that p's, b's and f's come out quite badly. Rookie mistake, and I've since worked to fix it.

Thank you, friends!

I wanted to take a sec to thank the people who have stopped, listened, subscribed and commented on the podcast. It means a lot to me to know that it's being pretty well received. It's a week since the launch and 23 people have subscribed to the flow. Obviously that's not a world-shaking number in the podcast world, but it's a better start than I suspected.

The second edition is in the can, and I should be uploading it early next week. (Truth be told, I've got four in the pipeline, but that's just so I have some lead-time to help avoid deadlines.) Next time around you'll get music from:

Lopside
Dave Preston
Austere
Sense Project
Zero Ohms
Igneous Flame
Philippe Emanuel Gueble
Orbital Decay
Larry Kucharz
Jonathan Block

Just as a heads-up...I'm still getting the hang of turning out a quality recording, so my voice in this one is very slightly overmodulated. But the music sounds great. I'm also looking at reducing the bitrate to reduce the file size--but I'm conflicted because I certainly don't want to sacrifice the quality of this wonderful music.

Look for the update next week. You can now subscribe to the 'cast on iTunes so that you never miss and episode! (You know, as long as I do the feed correctly....)

peace & power,
John

Hypnagogue Podcast 1

Friends: Let's give this a go. In theory, the podcast is ready to roll. I've tested it, just going to the URL, and it ran fine.

Still working through the fiddly bits about uploading to iTunes, but we do need to test-fire the rockets before launching the craft, hey?

I'd appreciate it if you could drop me a line at hypnagogue@hotmail.com to let me know, a) that you were actually able to access the podcast and b) what you thought.

peace & power,
John

Watch for the debut...

A copy of Audacity, a cheap microphone my son bought for Rockband, and an inner DJ that simply wants out...

Add those together and you've got the (hopefully) upcoming podcast from Hypnagogue. Every two weeks, 90 minutes of the best ambient and electronic music from around the world.

The first podcast features music from:

Steve Rose
Ministry of Inside Things
Mingo
Sensitive Chaos
A.R.S.(e)
Computerchemist
Dolmen
Parallel Worlds
Numina
Ran Kirlian
Synthetic Dream Foundation
Steve Roach

Give me a few days to sort out the technical side of things and we'll see if we can't get this thing underway...

peace & power,
