Title: The Quiet Sounds Podcast
Post by: Brian Bieniowski on April 02, 2008, 08:30:11 AM
Not sure if I've ever plugged my little project here on the Forum before.  Well, anyway, I've been doing ambient podcasts since 2005, and I figure if the people of any place will enjoy them it's you guys.  I've done eighteen episodes so far, all certainly music that will appeal to the "typical" Hypnos-phile.

http://www.asphalteden.com

Newest episode features underrated and obscure ambient tracks, with some by Hypnos and related artists.  Thanks for looking!

I've really enjoyed your podcasts, Brian, especially since you add commentary about the tracks you're playing.  It's a great way to discover new music.

I'm also pleased to see my friend (and Hypnos artist) David Tollefson on your playlist.  I'm hoping the upcoming new Viridian Sun material will get people a little more interested in his solo work.

Thanks for posting... I'm downloading this now and will give a listen later today.

I've appreciated Brian's Quiet Sounds mixes too. I note, among a few of my faves in there (Kiln's Thermals, Paul Bradley's Chroma, Shuttle358's Chessa) there's a CELER track in there.
FYI, there's a new album coming out "soon" on Infraction - entitled Discourses of the Withered. Look out for it - Jason@Infraction has been drooling over it (should make for interesting packaging ;))

Thank you, guys.

It's a real head scratcher to me about Tollefson.  Do people just think he has a weird name or what?  Maybe some folks will hear his track (I have 66 listeners according to Last.FM alone—god knows who these people are) and be inclined to explore further, especially since he seems to have presaged the ambient-guitar craze of the last year or three.

No commentary on this new one—just a little experiment with a subtle vocal overdub to intro and outro the broadcast.  I'll do something more substantial next time.

I found out about Celer on LiveJournal, believe it or not.  The duo are on my friends list (and what a cute couple they make) and so I checked out their music, which is quite nice.  They're prolific and CDR only, which makes it impossible for me to keep up with them, but there's a lot of potential there for awesome music.  Their song and album titles make one think they might be Italian.  ;)  Looking forward to their Infraction venture.

Re: Tollefson, I dunno, Brian. You’re right about his presaging of the recent ambient guitar + FX trend. Prompted by your track, I just dug out his 2nd Hypnos album, Near and Far (1999!), and the first track “Field of Blackbirds” blows away a lot of these latecomers to the stretched-out ambient guitar table, not to mention patching beautifully into a post-GYBE!/Mogwai post-rock area that subtracts all the overblown rockist bombast, and leaves you with essence of guitar. Problem is that the rest of the album is spotty. The earlier New Eyes on the Universe has a few more tracks going for it, including your track, which is a beauty, but then again half of it is... I dunno... not that great, with the greatness of the other stuff in mind. Time for a comeback, with better quality control.

I generally like the Tollefson CDs from start to finish.  At worst, I think some of the tracks are merely indistinct.  Surely not an uncommon issue in the annals of ambient albums.  ;)

I do think variety is a strength of the discs.  Each track is pretty different and few of them seem to go on for too long.  I'm getting tired of ambient CDs with three or four marathon tracks (always notable exceptions, of course), so it's nice to have that diversity.

Brian,

Thanks for this latest mix!  I listened to it a couple of times a work, excellent stuff.

Somehow I missed podcast #16 so I just finished listening to that as well.  Your intro was great, helped me appreciate was I was about to hear.  Even with all the mentions on the forum I'd never gotten around to listening to any Tonto music.  Now I'll have to seek some out.

They're not Italian - they reside in California...but the prolific part is very accurate.  I can hardly keep up with listening to all the stuff they've recorded.  The disc we're working on right now "Discourses of the Withered" and it should be ready to go in May.  We're going to pair it up with a bonus CDR (with the first 100 copies of 'discourses...') of source material and reworkings of tracks from around the time they were recording it.  Just getting the artwork finalized now.

If you're not familiar with Celer - it's a husband and wife duo, that work primarily with strings.  Violin, cello, viola are played by Danielle and then looped, layered, edited and reworked by Will.  This will be their first properly pressed disc, after dozens of handmade CDR discs they've released on their own.  I know they also have a collab. due out on Spekk (with Mathieu Ruhlmann) and a disc on and/oar's sublabel - both sometime this year.

for Brian:
of course we know yuor podcasts! always beatiful mix I thank you again! :)


About David Tollefson:
Honestly, I do not think he have been a precursor on ambient-guitar! at least not at levels of great Jeff Pearce (to mention a Hypnos artist) and please do not forget the master of works Robert Rich ;)

Nevertheless; I bought from Mike Griffin ALL David's works solo and both with Viridian Sun project, honestly preferring solo works.

Indeed, I agree with you Undershadow: "Near and Far" and "New Eyes on the Universe"  have been great works, they contains some jewels moments here and there but there are also not good noise moments of that you wrightly call "guitar +FX" that fall in rock-guitar-man-routine ... spotty .. yes :(

That's a pity becuase I feel David is a promise of a possible great artist; I do not have any news about him since some years; I also asked in this forum but no answer a part some sneering words ... ?! :(

Post by: mgriffin on August 04, 2008, 10:36:43 AM
I know David Tollefson very well, and I know he wouldn't put himself forward as any kind of progenitor of guitar-based ambient music.  But I also know that Brian is well aware of Pearce and Fripp and Robert Rich, and suspect that he wasn't talking about guitar-based ambient in general, but edgier, the more rock-influenced, distortion-tinged guitar ambient that has become more popular in the past few years.

He is still very active in music, most recently playing in the group Paint + Copter that can be seen playing around Portland fairly regularly.  In fact, that group's sound has evolved over the years away from more overt rock sounds, into more of a psychedelic ambient with percussion.  They have a couple of CDs about to be released in fact.

Also Dave and I just finished a new Viridian Sun album, which has a more organic sound (no synthesizers this time, just treated and looped guitar and bass) and should be released this fall.

I wouldn't rule out the possibility of another Tollefson solo album at some point, especially if there is a good response to the Viridian Sun album.

Yes .. sorry for the fussiness, but also in this area masters at work are (have been) Windy & Carl! specifically the guitar style of Carl Hultgren's fit exactly yuor definition "rock-influenced, distortion-tinged guitar ambient" and he's have been copied by so many guys! (among these myself! ;)) that never achieved teh beauty of of Carl's soundscapes...

Post by: mgriffin on August 04, 2008, 10:48:04 AM
Yes, and Tollefson and I are big fans of Windy & Carl too.  In fact, we went to one of their shows in Portland some years ago, and I guess Dave knew them beforehand, because we talked to them after the show and they were very nice, very normal people.  Not long after, they released a new album with a track called "Hypnos" but I don't know if that was just a coincidence, or if they remembered talking to me and remembered the name.

Hi Rick,

I never registered my Podcast with iTunes because I was concerned I'd run into copyright issues.  I don't exactly ask permission of many of the artists to cobble their stuff into the 'cast ... so I didn't want to tread on anybody's intellectual property for a homespun little "radio show."  Has this been a fallacy on my part?

if you want to simply subscribe to the podcast via iTunes, all you have to do is stick the RSS address:

into the "subscribe to podcast" box of the iTunes "advanced" menu.  It'll download the episodes automatically after that.

Brian,

Thanks for the iTunes instructions.  Now I can check out your podcast on my iPhone. I have my Hydrogen Cafe podcast mixes registered through iTunes and have not had any problems with it. The podcast is offered for free and I don't exchange any money in any way for my mixes. I also provide complete attribution for all of the artists that show up in my mixes through the tracklisting on my blog site. I also give links directly to the artist's website, Myspace page or directly to the album on Amazon to hopefully encourage folks to but their CD's. So, although our podcasts may fall into a "gray" area, they are usually seen as promotional by the artists. I have not come across any problems or negative feedback either through my blog or iTunes. I'm looking forward to giving your podcast a listen!

Rick

I made it most of the way through Quiet Sounds 25 last night, and really enjoyed it.  The best podcasts are the ones that give exposure to new, obscure or overlooked music we might not have otherwise encountered.  The only thing I'd heard here was the Roach track from Dynamic Stillness. 

I also like the "narrated" podcasts, like a radio show, rather than a mixtape.  Good stuff, Brian.
Title: Re: The Quiet Sounds Podcast
Post by: Brian Bieniowski on September 29, 2009, 11:26:39 AM
Thanks, guys.  I think Ferngerms should be doing a podcast, if his Now Playing posts are any indication of what mysteries we might be exposed to.

I like to play a variety of stuff, partly because it's all music I like, and partly because there are a lot of artists who "fit" well together and don't necessarily come from the same corners of the genre.  It's a gambit to get Steve Roach listeners into Tim Hecker, or vice versa ...

Hi everybody.

The latest episode of Quiet Sounds is up and running, so head over and download if you're interested in my picks of best of '09.  This one's going to be in two parts, so look for the second half later in the month (in case you're concerned I might overlook a release that comes out in the next three weeks.) ;)

This podcast is also cross-posted at the pop-culture site called Zap Town, which features a little of my writing about each track.  That can be found here:

Post by: 9dragons on December 12, 2009, 04:29:13 PM
Brian, just had to say how much I am enjoying your podcasts. Wish I would have delved into them earlier. I'm going through the past ten or so right now. Your taste in music is impeccable. I am especially enjoying the last two "best of the year" casts. Almost feel like I want to just write down everything on your list and get it based on what I heard on the podcasts. There is an interesting caveat though. As I am getting a sense for the realm of music that I think interests you most, which is, perhaps, the middle ground between psych-pop and ambient (my genre awareness is quite muddled), I am trying to discern the real, core difference between artists like Tim Hecker and Steve Roach. Is is the sensibility (one being urban/modern/industrial, the other spiritual/archaic) the sound pallete used, or the intended audience? I used to be a big fan of Tim Hecker, and laptop ambient ala 12k, but something about getting into Roach/Vidna/Rich/Alio Die made me turn away somewhat from these other artists, which at the time I considered to be too modern sounding, too tied to a modern sensibility. Now, reinspired by your podcasts, I am moving back the other way, maybe finding balance, and feeling more ready to embrace a wider spectrum of sounds again. That said, I am still hesitant to get anything by Hecker again, though I am awed by the songs you feature. I am wondering whether the music is more pop oriented, and designed to lure in the listener more easily. But again, what we could call modern minded music is more instantly appealing, and more pleasurable on the surface, more satisfying somehow. There is something about the format of the podcast, perhaps it's the juxtaposition of the different songs, or the live sensation of the format, that gives it a sense of wonder and discovery. Your editing skills and placement of songs is masterful. Anyway, these are just some meandering thoughts, thanks again for your work.
Title: Re: The Quiet Sounds Podcast
Post by: Brian Bieniowski on December 13, 2009, 10:04:54 AM
I'm so glad you're enjoying the 'casts, because I really do enjoy finding the records (I guess it is a curator impulse in me), and putting them all together.

It's funny that you make mention of the Hecker/Roach thing, and I think for a lot of listeners it is a matter of how they approach the music.  My theory is this: Because Steve Roach came out of a more "new age" (in the derogatory sense, though I find a lot to like in quite a bit of new age stuff), people do not feel as comfortable approaching him because he did not come out of a "cool" scene like Tim Hecker, who got his start doing minimal techno.  However, whenever I play newer Steve Roach (or pick a similar artist) to people who come out from an ambient/techno listening experience, they almost always like it.  The tribal stuff is a little more specialized, I suppose.  It's just not everybody's cup of tea.  I have also seen Hecker get a lot of crossover from the fans of dronier metal and people who like noise music, too.

I think what bugs me a little is that guys like Hecker (deservedly) get a lot of press about their music in more "cool" places, while perfectly good artists who we know and love on places like this forum (Forrest, or Alio Die, as examples), don't get the same kind of treatment because they're assumed to be the kind of artists you might hear in day spas or hippie retreats.  And, of course, you might, but I also think something like Dynamic Stillness isn't being done by a lot of artists out there and could possibly have more audience crossover (into the kinds of people who like Hecker, for instance) than it's currently getting.

Anyhow, thanks for listening, as always.  When I first got into music, I liked a lot of post-punk, synth pop, techno, and goth/industrial as a teenager.  I discovered dreampop and shoegaze, then gradually moved into stuff that was further afield like krautrock, psych, and ambient.  But I like it all.  ;)
Title: Re: The Quiet Sounds Podcast
Post by: Brian Bieniowski on December 13, 2009, 10:12:53 AM
One interesting thing I have noticed, that I meant to type, is that there is a loose scene (at least here on the east coast in NYC and certainly Portland), of hippie bearded weirdos doing electronic music in a very 80s style.  It seems to have branched out of the whole fried psych-folk thing, and it's pretty cool. I'm thinking of groups like White Rainbow, Oneohtrix Point Never and the like ... and they are definitely all over the early 80s ambient stuff that Stearns and Roach were doing.  So I guess there's crossover in strange places, and you never know what's going to resonate with who.

I went back to your site, thinking, I have to download all the Quiet Sounds right now! and find that none of the links work. Is this due to the nefarious hacking that happened previously? I can only seem to download the most recent episode (and can't wait to hear it!). Again, thanks so much for this exquisite work...

The links still work for me, 9dragons. Maybe try a different browser?

BTW, I agree BB's podcasts are top-notch. Nice to see a track from Echoes of Polyhymnia on the latest!

Really enjoying 32: Vocal Motion right now, really beautiful music.  :'(

Do you allow submissions from artists?
