Note today is “Bandcamp Friday” where Bandcamp waives it’s revenue share on all sales to give musicians more money from each purchase. So it’s a great day to buy indy albums on Bandcamp to support your fav artists.

The Sonic Encounters began as a podcast in 2015. After each season of the podcast completes it is released in album form. Volume 03 contains the 7 songs from Season 03 of the podcast.

These songs are a combination of electronic tonalities derived from synthesis and musique concrète using original sounds, field recordings, patterns and notes played via keys, pads, trigs, and buttons. Additional expression on these musical objects is improvised via key/pad pressure, touch strips, knobs, sliders, crossfaders and live sound design to create real-time automations.

The following review of the original podcast that does a nice job summarizing the concept of Sonic Encounters Soundscapes…

“Goosebumps and Deep Breaths… these rich soundscape “stories” sincerely do thrill my senses.

The concept for Sonic Encounters (so far, and in my interpretation) is this. You read a short text (sometimes the title is enough) on the premise of the “story” before listening. Then you listen to a purely sonic piece of field recording morphed with music, electronic manipulation, and performance, and you’re immediately transported via your own imagination’s 3D projection of his premise.

Mark’s become a consummate sound artist. He creates powerful imagery and elicits surprisingly keen emotional response from the listener without being heavy-handed. His economy and value in precision is proof of his skill. ” – BlindFlyTheater.com

Enjoy and have a musical weekend!
