Season 2: Momentarily Suspended for R&D.

Season 2: Momentarily Suspended for R&D.

Some of you have noticed that I haven’t added new songs to the podcast for the last two weeks.  Just to give you a little insight, I’ve decided recently that as much as the podcast has served me well, my programming concept is a bit flawed.  I’ve come to the conclusion that one song per podcast episode is not ideal.  The reasons are twofold:

1. The way iPods and iTunes software handle podcast episodes is much different than songs in a library–given that most podcasts are magazine-like in format (dj’ed mixes, talk programming, etc.)–so one song just doesn’t cut the mustard for me as an end-user. Too many stops and starts, and too complicated to figure out how to just play.

2.  It offers little incentive for a podcast subscriber to pony up for the songs when bundled into a user-friendly, high quality album format.

If you can’t beat ’em join ’em? I’ve begun testing longer-format audio programming for when this train starts rollin’ again.

In the meantime, I’ve been having fun with my anti-viral videos for my Sound of Picture project.  They are not that intersting, but I think they’re pretty.  I do them mostly to encourage other to think about making better use of my compositions for their own work.  Watch a few here and consider clicking “subscribe.”

ps.  And keep an eye open for Sound of Picture Vol 3: Ambient to hit the free/donation shelf soon!  I’m surprisingly proud of it.

    R&D, what does that stand for?

    R & D stands for research and development. (;
