New Podcast: Encryption Key (Ambient Rushton Podcast 136)

This podcast contains a 27 minute track by my alter ego “Chillout Preservation Collective”. It’s kind of a dub ambient thing, and rather minimal in nature.

Why do I release tracks under pseudonyms? Well, first because it’s easy to do in this modern digital era. If I’ve got something I’ve made that I think is outside the realm of what I normally do, then I might as release it on it’s own. I’ll tell a small number of people following along about it, whether it be via podcast or my email newsletter, and blog post. It doesn’t have to be a big deal. Second, why not? When I started getting into music in the 80s, I was always fascinated by artists who released things under various names.

New Podcast: “Compact Discs (Ambient Rushton Podcast 130)”

Direct download link: http://traffic.libsyn.com/ambient/compactdiscs-ambientrushtonpodcast130.mp3

Hi, this is Mark Rushton of markrushton.com – thanks for listening to my podcast of original or live ambient and electronic music and field recordings. This is Podcast #130 produced on Wednesday, February 14, 2018. This podcast is called “Compact Discs”

As of today, I have 18 albums available on the compact disc format.

Most are at Amazon, but I have 4 fairly recent titles available through a manufacturing company called Kunaki. Those albums are A Brief Stop, Lonely Music, Meditation Music Vol 1, and Meditation Music Vol 2.

Kunaki makes CDs in Sparks, Nevada, and they ship to the United States and something like 48 other countries.

Amazon has most of my older albums. Everything from 2004’s The Driver’s Companion to 2013’s Machines.

Amazon ships to more countries, and if you’re not in the US their shipping rates are reasonable if you don’t mind waiting a few weeks for the CD to arrive.

So here, in the podcast, is a megamix of tracks from some of those 18 albums.

In the description is a link on where to buy my CDs.

Of course, all these titles are on the streaming services. But hey, CDs still work. A lot of people still like to get them. And I thought I’d just let you know about it.

Anyway, thanks for listening.

Chuck Bird Redux – Ambient Rushton Podcast 126

Direct link to the MP3 file:  http://traffic.libsyn.com/ambient/chuckbirdredux-ambientrushtonpodcast126.mp3

This is a a live, 10 minute remix of my track “Chuck Bird” (the original is on my 2008 album “Flow”) using the iOS program Samplr. Created just after Chuck’s would-be 60th birthday and a little more than 11 years after his death.

Chuck Bird was an early internet friend due a mutual appreciation of British guitarist Bill Nelson and other artists.  Chuck coordinated and produced fan-created compilation albums of numerous artists, not just Bill Nelson.  We talked regularly on the phone and met once for dinner when I lived in Houston in 1997 and his work schedule brought him to town.

Bradley Charles “Chuck” Bird was born November 11, 1957. He died in Nashville, Tennessee after a 30 year battle with diabetes at the age of 49 on November 14, 2006. He graduated from San Pedro High School in 1975.

He’s at www.findagrave.com/memorial/65484618 – Green Hills Memorial Park Rancho Palos Verdes, Los Angeles County, California, USA – Plot Sunrise Slope 193, D – Memorial ID 65484618
