Refactoring Rainy Dreams

I’m releasing a new single track on October 8th called Refactoring Rainy Dreams.  It’s 5 minutes and 36 seconds long and features heavily processed wine glasses, rain sounds, and other haunting effects.

If you’re a Spotify user, you can pre-save the track prior to the October 8th release date by going here.

It’ll be able for pre-sale purchase on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play music on Monday, September 24th.

New Podcast: “Falling Midnight Sevenism (Ambient Rushton Podcast 141)”

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 #141 produced on Friday, September 21 of 2018.

This is a little bit different kind of podcast because the music I’m presenting is not mine, but rather it’s a remix I did of another artist’s work.

The Assignment: Rework some very quiet music by making it even more sedate.

Last week, about 60 members of the Disquiet Junto recorded ambient music for the middle of the night, also known as Disquiet Junto 0350. The specific request was to “Make very quiet music for very late at night for very fragile psyches.”

For this week’s assignment, I selected select a track by another artist, from last week, and proceeded to dial it down even further.

I had to consider what edges the music has that might be smoothed out, what drama it has that might be subsumed. I was to consider how I might do such things while retaining something that is inherently listenable.

So I reworked Sevenism’s track “midnight solo (falling leaf) disquiet0350” – (a link to that track is in the description) https://soundcloud.com/7777777777/midnight-solo-falling-leaf-disquiet0350 which was mostly quiet piano playing

The version I posted for the 351st Disquiet Junto was 2 minutes long. This is the 20 minute version.

Sevenism has given me permission to post this version in the podcast.

I’m also including a link in the description to Sevenism’s discography on Bandcamp and Spotify, which is rather considerable. He’s released 32 albums so far in 2018: https://sevenism.bandcamp.com/ and https://open.spotify.com/artist/44vR1rYUxb5tnXqqXOcGFg?si=-iQBGJNoTMO97qdL1WkBAg
