An Ambient Year

A series of hour long live mix recordings, compositions and productions by Mac Dunlop. These broadcasts explore the knock on effects of sound layers within the  evolution of sonic themes as they form. This series arose from a desire for a sound that is no more music than it is noise. A sound that feels like it is around all the time, a sound that compliments, a sound that is camouflaged inside everything else. Find out more at www.macspianolounge.blogspot.com.

Two work for radio. First, "Morning Is Broken," a new work by Colin Black.

Moreover, this resulting shattered soundscape is further reflected and amplified back to us via various media streams. This work is meant as a stark reminder to not take your morning for granted, treasure it, or your morning could turn into mourning for what was accidentally or recklessly lost."
