Episode 08

I’ve been sitting on this mix for a while now aside for adding one track.
It’s amazing how life can get in your way of doing things sometimes and what a massive waste of time being sick is.
So if you are feeling down, feeling sick, feeling uninspired just know that you are not alone and that things will change and hopefully for the better.
The only thing that’s permanent is impermanence.

Episode 06

It’s finally spring.
Many of my cacti and other plants are blooming.
I have not spent a ton of time at the computer.
But I had the urge to make a new mix.
Put your headphones on and go pull some weeds.

Episode 05 / Guest Mix — Billy Gomberg

I can always count on Billy Gomberg to introduce me to something new and amazing to listen to and this mix doesn’t fall short in any way.
I enjoy his own work so much that I’ve released two cassettes with him on Dinzu and I always make sure to grab his other releases  whether it’s his solo stuff or his collaborations with Anne Guthrie as Fraufraulein.

If you’re not familiar with Billy, below is his artist statement.
Read that, listen to the mix and hop online and support his work.
His Slight At That Contact LP on Students of Decay is a personal favorite.

“My interest is in creating a space, real or imagined, poetic or remembered, where a relationship can develop, where we can share some of each other’s inner language and experience.  Musical material from analog & digital synthesis and processing, in addition to various fidelities of field recordings, lay ground and illuminate our duration there. Broadly, I am making ambient music, formed from familiar sources but under the influence of less bucolic moods than the genre implies.  I am of the city as much as I am of nature, my practice brings me comfort through its exploration of emotion and experience, not a balm but a means to articulate a poetry of our inner lives made available in this exchange of performing and listening.”

Episode 02 / Guest Mix — Karl Fousek

Excellent guest mix for you by musician and composer, Karl Fousek.
You may recognize his name from his collaboration with Roger Tellier-Craig and Devin Hansen, No Image In Particular, released on Dinzu Artefacts.
His latest release is another collaboration up for pre-order now on Astral Spirits.

Karl’s work explores the sonorities of electronic sound synthesis algorithms, analog and digital, in a variety of contexts: from improvised music, to generative composition, to drone and minimalism. As a performer he is committed to the pursuit of a truly “live” electronic music, participating in both concerts for solo synthesizer and in group improvisations alongside electronic and acoustic instrumentation.

 

Episode 01

At some point in 2017 I got the grand idea that I had the time, energy and ability to host a podcast.
The plan was to play music and talk to people in the experimental music world.
The goal was to introduce people to new sounds beyond the Dinzu discography.
It didn't take long before I realized that I did not in fact have what it took to host such a podcast.

Recording myself talking was not fun.
Being a great interviewer is not as easy as it sounds.

Creating the episode’s playlist was the one thing that I enjoyed.
And these “mixes” achieved the original goal.

So I’ve decided to give it another shot.
But this time with no talking, no interviews, no advertisements.

This is the first (but not first) episode to the new (but not new) podcast with the same (and not at all new) name.

Enjoy The Size of Various Objects.
