The Ambient Soundbath Podcast is For Sale

Well, friends, it’s been a great ride, but it’s time for someone else to plot the future course of the Ambient Soundbath podcast and for me to switch gears. When I started this thing 10+ years ago, the term soundbath or sound bath was something that I made up to explain a sort of way of listening by merging two words, now sound baths are everywhere. As for ambient music, what a strange genre to see such growth, but if you look at Spotify and streaming services, in general, ambient music ‘that can be listened to as easily as it can be ignored… that provides a place for calm and a space for thinking’ as Brian Eno wrote so many years ago, has become the salve for a generation worn down by global pandemic, financial troubles and generalized anxiety. Fact is: Ambient music and the Ambient Soundbath Podcast helps people, but alas, it’s good to know when you’ve done your best work and to try and go out on top… With that… – The Ambient Soundbath Podcast is For Sale

Do you want a successful and thriving podcast without all the work? A podcast with hundreds of great reviews across Apple Podcasts and other podcast sites such as Amazon, Spotify, Stitcher, Spreaker, TuneIn, etc? A podcast with a robust website that’s been expertly search engine optimized and has fantastic Google search engine rankings?

Do you want to build on a successful podcast with thousands of passionate and enthusiastic listeners? A podcast that’s been listened to hundreds of thousands of times by tens of thousands of people?

If all this sounds perfect, it really is, but I’ve done my part with the Ambient Soundbath Podcast and it’s time for me to pass the reins to somebody else, somebody with a vision for how to move into the future with the Ambient Soundbath Podcast in the growing podcast landscape.  

The sale will include transfer of site domain, website, feed, logins, social accounts and all related files. Logo files in all graphic formats are available. Music is not for sale, but can be retained in the podcast. Individual artists will retain rights to all of their music may opt out of inclusion in the podcast at any point, but as my work constitutes 90+% of the work on the Ambient Soundbath Podcast, that music will be yours to use for the podcast, other uses will require licensing. Purchase of my Ambient Soundbath Podcast catalog of works is something that I’m open to discussing. 

If you’re interested, please get in touch and let’s discuss. This could be an amazing and lucrative opportunity for the right person or group. Contact me here.

Ambient Soundbath Podcast #122 – Allister Thompson’s Autumnal

Ambient Soundbath Podcast #122 - Allister Thompson's Autumnal

It’s always my pleasure to feature the work Allister Thompson. Through the years, Allister has become a friend, collaborator and kindred spirit. I was tickled when he released Autumnal,” his first long-form ambient piece. In order to bulk up the program, I added the wonderful track “After Us” from last year’s Primordia. This is a great deep listen. Enjoy and go check out my friend’s Bandcamp page.

Allister Thompson makes ambient, post-rock, psychedelia, and new age under the names The Gateless Gate and Khan Tengri. His newest release, “Autumnal,” is a long-form ambient piece inspired by the cloudy, windy, mostly wet days of fall where he lives in Northern Ontario, Canada near the shores of Lake Nipissing.

Ambient Soundbath Podcast #121 – Paul Beaudoin’s Shakti

Ambient Soundbath Podcast #121 - Paul Beaudoin's Shakti
Loading

The inclusion of Paul Beaudoin’s Shakti here on the Soundbath started curiously, when a variety of Paul’s tracks showed up in my inbox. Either from a series of Twitter posts or from a Reddit/Ambient conversation, Paul knew I was looking for longform works and sent me some things. I was instantly smitten with Paul’s beautiful collection of longform works. I kind of collect longform works like I do deep dish pizza experiences. Folks close to me know that two of my favorite things are deep dish pizza (specifically) but really and kind of pizza and ambient music, specifically longforms. A strange corollary, perhaps, but discovering Paul’s music was not unlike discovering a new pizzeria with a variety of delicious pies. Paul’s work demonstrates a masterful artistry with careful attention to restraint. This won’t be the last time you hear Paul’s work on the Soundbath.

Enjoy this two and a half hour beauty.

About Shakti:

Shakti was created in 2015 while Paul was in Tallinn, Estonia on a Fulbright Scholarship. While in Tallinn, Paul experienced a major shift in his life, and began to reexamine nearly every aspect of his personal and creative. Paul’s interest in Indian culture and Hinduism, in particular, led him to imagine Shakti, the Indian goddess involved in the creation, maintenance, and destruction of the universe – a goddess of both good and evil. As in life, the movement in Shakti is extremely slow and almost imperceptible. It was made from a series of 10 chords played by a Mexican accordionist that seems lost. And, as in most Indian raga, Shakti is meant to be heard at a specific time of day – the end of the piece should coincide with the sunset. Shakti is dedicated to the Estonian dancer Kaspar Aus, who used it in his evening-length performance “Solo: from nothing to nothing.”

About Paul:

Paul Beaudoin (b. 1960, Miami, FL, USA) – is an academically trained composer who received a Ph.D. in music theory and composition from Brandeis University. He is an award-winning educator and published author on John Cage, Gyorgy Ligeti, and the history of American music. For decades, Paul lived in Boston, MA, where he conducted, played clarinet, and taught music and art history at several universities.  As an educator, he was a leading advocate for online learning and spent a decade traveling the globe to train teachers to teach with technology.
In 2015, Paul was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship that brought him to Estonia.  During this period, Paul’s inner creativity was reawakened.  He began painting, making experimental video art, and writing poetry. During this time, Paul experienced a radical shift in his creative work as he reflected on his academic career and inner spiritual transformation. Paul’s music moved away from the dissonant, angular music he felt was expected of an academic composer in New England.  Paul’s music softened, expanding into long, slowly evolving soundscapes living somewhere between ambient music and the long drone music of composers such as La Monte Young, Tony Conrad, and Eliane Radigue.  Paul’s recent music parallels his visual work, where soft backgrounds are etched with foreground gestural mark-making.
Paul is a globally recognized composer, visual artist, experimental video maker, and writer who lives in an Estonian neighborhood formerly occupied by the Soviet military.
