Drone

You know, I have no idea what to call the artifacts of my work…oh, geez, pretentious much?

I have no idea what to call the audio I make. The genre it best marches is Drone…and even though it’s been around since the mid-twentieth century, few know of it.

And Drone has too many meanings
Radio controlled toys and flying death machines
Low ranked or oblivious worker
Mindless follower
Background noise
A musical form that played with note lengths and timing
An digital music genre that shapes overlapping waves
The sound of existence

Drone is the sound of the fabric of reality stretching to accommodate existence
It’s the self creating scofffold straining under the weight of being

That’s how I use the word Drone

What Of It

This is a blog, so why don’t I blog any

Probably because all I’d have to say is I wish I were dead

Over and over and over again

I wish I were dead I wish I were dead

And who’d want to hear that

Behind Junkie

Example of my Technique

Brusier.m4a is a field recording I made on a warm October morning between a dry cleaners and a restaurant. A downspout was producing a crazy discordant noise. I think it was ice from a freezing up A/C unit on the roof, but I’m not sure.

Kids and dogs wandered by wondering what the hell I was doing crouched down holding my phone up to the downspout.

The recording became bibruser3_stems_OuiDecay-001 the rhythmic jangly stringy percussive cohesive backing layer of Junkie.

Does iTunes Store use Google webcache?

This entry is part 4 of 5 in the series iTunes Podcast Issue

Still having problems with my iTunes Podcast listing.

Oddly enough, the old version of my podcast feed that is showing up in the iTunes store is an exact duplicate of the one that Google has cached.

Could it be that the iTunes Store podcast directory uses the Google web cache?

I’m submitted a cache removal request for the feed, should take about a day to go through, we’ll see then.

Nope, broken again

This entry is part 3 of 5 in the series iTunes Podcast Issue

For Pete’s Sake! my iTunes store listing is broken again. The podcast feed is working correctly. I think Apple has a cacheing issue going on. Everything is good on my end—I’ve checked and rechecked over a course of weeks. I followed all the advice Apple Support sent me, and at for a brief moment it started working again and displayed the most up to date list, but it suddenly reverted. If you subscribe in iTunes you’ll still be able to pull down the most recent episodes even though they’re not listed in iTS.

Google Play is working correctly as is Podbay, and others.

Feed Issues Update

This entry is part 2 of 5 in the series iTunes Podcast Issue

I think I finally have my iTunes store podcast listing straightened out. Something about not having PowerPress display the media player and download links in my posts and having a YouTube embed instead. Once I allowed the media player to display the iTunes store listing refreshed with my latest episodes.

It shouldn’t work that way, no other directory had a problem. But…what works, works, I guess. Sadly I know have both the PowerPress player and the YouTube player in my podcast posts. I’m trying to figure out what to do about that. I’ll be leaving it for the time being, and maybe, hopefully, I’ll get it sorted out one of these days. For now I’m just thankful the listing has finally updated.
