Something quick for the holiday - a nice 18Hz beat drone with a banjo/cello duet way in the background, out of the way when you need to refocus but audible enough to attach your ears to.

It didn't seem like I could put off moving to the new version of Blogger much longer, so I went ahead with the conversion yesterday. Then, lo and behold, I notice in iTunes that every episode was re-posted... That explains the 500% increase in downloads yesterday!

So for those of you who leave iTunes running all day, sorry. You got some duplicates.

The next episode will be up shortly. In the meantime, I'm getting a sampler together to send to NPR's Open Mic program, which is a web-only feature of All Songs Considered. They're only going to listen to one tune, most likely, so if anyone out there wants to make any suggestions as to what the strongest episode has been, please speak up. Right now, I'm leaning towards Drift.

Thanks for listening - if the changeover to the new Blogger has caused problems anywhere, please let me know.

Signal Loss

A 14Hz beat to get your mind going, and another dose of Hydrogen towards the end. This week's episode reintroduces the acoustic banjo - a quarter inch jack of dubious worth has made it difficult for me to mic it for the past several months, though the sound is undeniably superior to the electric banjo. As it is, I was fortunate to get through the intro before the usual issues forced me to revert to the electric in order to complete the recording.

Overall, though, this is another of my favorites. Crashing is still a problem, however - the working title of this week's piece stuck, and just about says it all. The Binaural Banjo is and always will be free to download, copy, and distribute - but if anyone out there has some unused memory cards they could contribute to the cause, email me!
