        Thank you Bruce!

        Bill was great to work with and possesses a very humble yet entertaining personality. It was a fun show to put together. :D

        Thanks for your comments and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

          Another great show - fine, diverse mix of music and a really entertaining interview. Interesting how many ambient artists talk about their music in visual terms - Bill did this several times, referring to 'blurring' sounds or 'standing in front of the camera', and I've noticed other interviewees making reference to painting techniques. Maybe we need to invent some new terminology specifically for ambient music? Hmmm :hmmm:
          And another nice guy, too - there must be something about making ambient music that's good for the soul or something...

            S1gnsOfL1fe, thank you so much for adding my track at the end. I was just listening and suddenly heard my name. I haven't had this feeling in my chest since middle school!

            Much appreciated, I cannot stress enough how awesome it is to have a community like this one.

            Now, I've finally got some motivation to get a synth and make something new!

              You're welcome!

              That's the whole reason I do this show is to give artists a platform and an opportunity to showcase their talent.

              Really glad you enjoyed the show and I look forward to hearing some new material! The EP you sent me is fantastic.

              Cheers,

                I've been streaming the "bunny" album all week, it's definitely going into a steady rotation of my current favorites tracks. Great stuff aoVI.

                  ah man, this is the first time an album of mine ever got a nickname. The bunny album.

                  I like it.

                  Thank you for having a listen.

                    Great podcast guys. I finally go around to listening to it late last night/early this morning. A great selection of music, as usual, and an interesting interview, not least because Bill made a few statements that struck resonant, sympathetic chords with me.

                    Good work :tu:
