Welcome To The Sunday Soundtrack (recast 1 Jun 08) – 22 Feb 09

Hey folks….

Thanks for listening in once again. While this week wasn’t VERY busy (this past Friday night and Saturday evening moreso), I didn’t get the new tracks I was hoping to get, and currently need to troubleshoot a mic issue with my audio interface. That being said, I’m posting another recast. I hope you enjoy the mix.

1. Vibrations – Sutro Heights/Om Lounge – Vol.7
2. Well I Gotta Story to Tell – Evolve/Chill Out-West Coast Edition, Vol. 2
3. Survivor – Mr. Fingers/Future Soul
4. Planet Of The Breaks (Jazzanova Rmx) – Visit Venus/The Endless Bummer Rmx Appendix
5. Then Came You – Euphonic feat. Kevin Yost/Mushroom Jazz 2
6. Hurt Of A Nerd (Jimpster Rmx) – Visit Venus/The Endless Bummer Rmx Appendix
7. Feeling Good (Joe Clausell Remix) – Nina Simone/Verve Remix Box Set Deluxe Edition Set
8. Like a Tattoo – Sade/Best of Sade

Thanks to AMR for expressing interest in Nina Simone. I would have never considered her considering the vibe and genres of this podcast, but I was able to find the remix above. Again, Verve Records comes through.

I hope you enjoyed the tracks, and further hope that whenever you’re listening to this, your state of mind is playing your desired soundtrack as well. If you have any questions about The Sunday Soundtrack, please feel free to email me.

The Sunday Soundtrack is on Twitter, you can follow it here and on Facebook as well, here.

For those podcasters/musicians/remixers/etc…I’m hoping to resurrect another podcast that I started in 2007. It is entitled “Fusion: Where Music, Technology, and the Creativity of the Artist Intersect”. If you are interested in participating, you can find more information about it here.

peace, have a great week!
All the best,

Fusion: Where Music, Technology, and Artist Creativity Intersect

Coming soon.....

Hello readers and listeners.

I trust all is well today. This post is a follow-up to the previous post about the subject of an upcoming podcast I hope to resurrect entitled Fusion. The concept of this podcast came to me via an off the cuff discussion I had a few years ago with a fellow podcaster/recording artist/graphic designer. Both of us, being musicians in our own right, began discussing our backgrounds and influences in making music, which invariably talking about how technology (past and present) played a role taking the music from inner to outer.

I began to see the different paths he had taken and compared them to mine. I also began to see, along our separate journeys, how there were things we couldn;t *readily accomplish* (but did) that we could easily accomplish now. The conclusion of the discussion led me to develop the concept for this podcast – one that would share the insights of an (generally musical, but not limited to) artist by which they leverage technology to get their art out there – including their journey along the way, their influences etc.

The format of the podcast is to use an audio interview, very casual but basically formatted, and to just have some fun with it (which is the most important part). Being a techy, I have to include the usual aspects of what kind of hardware/software was/is being used, suggestions/recommendations, tips, etc…but fuse the overall flow with some laid back fun.

As said, although the general focus is about music (recording, arranging, creating, production, podcasting), every once and awhile, I’d like to include the same concept with regards to web design, photography, etc. All aspects of using social media, Web 2.0 and the like are definitely topics of discussion as well.

That being said, I’d like to invite all interested in leaving me your Skype ID, Yahoo IM, iChat ID, Grand Central number or even cell or landline number so the audio interview can be recorded to my laptop. Primarily, I’d prefer to do it via net chat, but will consider landline/cell phone interviews down the line (gotta keep it as inexpensive as I can – heh!). If you are interested, feel free to leave your info in the comments section or e-mail me

Thanks (for your time and interest) in advance…

peace!

Welcome To The Sunday Soundtrack – A Sunday Kind of Flow – 15 Feb 09

Welcome to The Sunday Soundtrack! I hope all are well and had a good weekend thus far. I’m already sorta winding down from a laidback, but busy weekend. I could definitely use President’s Day off tomorrow for sure.

This edition of the Sunday Soundtrack is entitled “A Sunday Kind Of Flow”, a title that was inspired by, you guessed it, all tracks with the word Sunday in the title. The tracks, as a whole, depart from my usual collection of chill, but change CAN be a good thing at times. I hope you enjoy it. It’s my pleasure to feature Mr. Tim Watson, a very talented smooth jazz keyboardist with a heart of gold. Tim, thanks for your gifts in total.

Without further adieu…check the playlist…

2. Sunday Mornin’ – Brian Bromberg/Downright Upright
3. Sunday Afternoon – Tim Watson/Sunday Afternoon

“Sunday Morning” – Brian Bromberg and The Downright Upright Band

Special shout out to Ana B for providing me with the Etta James track…. much appreciated.

I *will* be back next week as usual with a SSP re-cast from last year.

Enjoy the week, day, hour, and second…be safe.

peace,
F!
