Pirate Raid Begins … Now

Put on your biggest pirate hat, don that eye patch, uncork that rum bottle, and let’s have a pirate raid!

In a little bit, I will be performing a live ambient concert on radiospiral.net, Saturday September 14 at 10p US Eastern time.  I’m already broadcasting, and the live set will begin sometime around the bottom of the hour.

Unfortunately, my video rig is not yet set back up since the studio work, so this will be audio-only.  But still a lot of fun.

Please come by the chat and say hello if you tune in.  I hope to see you there!

Pirate Raid Saturday starts in 30 minutes!

Pirate Raid Saturday 8/24/2019!

20190305_232708Arrrrrr.

I’m starting to get back into the swing of things for live music, after a nice long hiatus in which I released an album, went on vacation, and generally focused on work and family stuff during the long hot Texas summer.

Oh, and did I mention I tore my studio up again?  Had to fix a couple of troubles and the only way to do it right was to redo a few things differently.

But … long hot summers thankfully come to an end, and I am now able to focus a little time back into one of my big passions:  live ambient music.  In that spirit, I am going to be doing a live ambient concert on radiospiral.net tomorrow evening, Saturday August 24, 2019 at 10p US Eastern time.

Unfortunately, my video rig is not yet set back up since the studio work, so this will be audio-only.  But still a lot of fun.

BWDD On Vacation

With Mountain Skies behind me and an upcoming family trip ahead of me, I’ve decided to take a brief vacation from BWDD, until after my travels settle down.

Also, I’ve been doing some studio rewiring with a bit of additional equipment and such, so I need the downtime to get that finished.

I’ll be hooked back up and ready to broadcast again by July, so please stay tuned …

Thom Brennan Soundgardens

IMG_0013They say that good things come to those who wait.  Patience is a virtue.  Etc.  Well, with the release of Thom Brennan’s new album Soundgardens, I say thank goodness that the waiting is over!

Yes, that’s right folks, after many years of quiet, Thom Brennan has just released Soundgardens, a lush, expansive collection of beatless ambient poems that only Thom could make.

I could give you lots of words to try to capture how I stoked I am about this release, but I can condense it down to one statement:  you need to get a copy of this album.  Trust me on this.  Here’s where you go:

Get Soundgardens here …

While you’re there, feel free to pick up a few other masterpieces as well …

Blue Water Drift Dive #8 Video

Apologies to those who attended the live concert but noticed that the video feed had no corresponding audio.  Dumb mistake on my part, of course.  Hopefully you tuned into the RadioSpiral feed while you watched the video.  Not perfect, I know …

In any event, I managed to salvage something out of the broadcast by using the video saved by the YouTube stream and pairing it with the audio that I recorded of the event.  The video quality unfortunately suffered (double encoding), but the audio quality should be very good.

Next time I will double check the audio ins on the video computer … !
