2 New Releases… Sonic Encounters Volume 04 and SYNC Vol. 1

Hi everyone, it’s Bandcamp Friday. That means that today, artists get 100% revenue share so it’s great time to buy indy music. I’m in two new releases today.

Sonic Encounters Vol. 04

Second up, Sonic Encounters Volume 04 is here! Sonic Encounters began as a podcast in 2015. After each season of the podcast completes it is released in album form. Volume 04 contains the 8 songs with almost 40 minutes of music from Season 04 of the podcast. Volume 04 contains mixture of ambient, experimental, and melodic songs that follow a cinematic arc.


These songs are a combination of electronic tonalities derived from synthesis and musique concrète using original sounds. Most of the songs are improvisations recorded in one take. Songs were produced on a variety of rigs including of Ableton Live, Synthstrom Deluge, Eurorack, and various iPad instruments and effects using keys, pads, multi-touch, expressive controllers, and gestural expression via joystick.

Here it is on Bandcamp.

The following review of the original podcast 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. ”

Colorado Modular Synth Society SYNC Vol. 1

If you recall I played a live hybrid event “To Explore Synced Modular Synth Performance” on August 22nd, 2022 for a Colorado Modular Synth society Event. They took the time to mix and master the audio into a formal release.

Here it is on Bandcamp.

Here are clocks, CV, Midi, and audio crisscrossing to build a beautiful deep listening experience. Four pairs of artists sync up their modular synths, groove boxes, music apps, and more for unique tandem live performances.

Check out the original stream from Sync on our YouTube channel youtu.be/EnatYVZbaOI.
