Good salutations, Soundbath listeners… I’m really excited for this program as it’s the first to feature a guest host. I actually got this idea from Dave Michuda, host of Low Light Mixes, after he asked me to do a mix for him (you can hear it here).
This program features longtime reviewer, podcaster, proponent and friend, John Shanahan of the Hypnagogue Podcast – A highly recommended and well-curated program. Without further ado, I’ll let John tell the rest of the story.
Theme: This Quiet Place
It just so happens Matt Borghi contacted me about guest hosting the Ambient Soundbath on the one-year anniversary of my moving from a house on a busy main road to a new home, well off the beaten path on the edge of a marsh. For a year now I’ve been reveling in this almost astonishing level of calm, augmented and accented with beautiful night sounds and the whisper of wind coming off the water and through the trees. The night that Matt reached out with his kind offer, the rest of my family was elsewhere, so I sat down at my studio controls in this place we call The Cottage in the Woods and curated a flow that echoes the serenity, mystery, and hushed joys of the night world around me in this quiet place. I hope you enjoy it.
