Podcast Season Six, Episode 3 with "guest" Federico Durand

I think, while editing this episode together, I had the realization I might have been really using an "NPR Voice" this time—hopefully it's charismatic enough but who knows?

This was a challenging episode and was kind of difficult to put together at times, but difficult in different way in comparison to other episodes where there is an actual guest I am speaking with. I invited Federico Durand, renowned ambient composer from Argentina, onto the show last fall, and over our exchange, it was determined that there would be a language barrier or sorts preventing us from actually having a conversation. Instead, Durand curated a mix of 10 tracks and jotted down some thoughts on each piece—then I tried my best to do his words justice and read those thoughts during this episode.

Durand has had a big impact on me personally since I launched this site in 2013, and a number of his compositions are among my favorite in the ambient/experimental genre, so I was grateful to have the opportunity to involve him with the podcast in whatever way was possible.

You may subscribe and listen via Spotify or Apple Podcasts or Google Podcasts if you are so inclined; or, you can stream it below from the lil Podbean doodab. 

Thanks again to Federico for his time and thoughtfulness. You can see all the pieces I've written about his work here, and the extended show notes are available here.
