Today we feature Tim Reed who has the electro-acoustic ambient sounds down to a science, quite literally. Tim has a PhD in composition from the University of Florida and currently teaches music theory and composition at Manchester College in Indiana.
The work A Nonfunctional Teapot echos mangled samples of what I assume is teapots and other strange sound recordings based around the theme. These manipulations weave in and out creating a very interesting composition reminiscent of the great John Cage or Karlheinz Stockhausen.
Please download and enjoy. Tim Reed has plenty of other music for your perusal at the following links.
I’m going to go put on some tea.

Subaqueous – Liquescent
Here is a nice melodic, electronic tune from the Seattle composer Subaqueous. His music is a unique blend of beat science, melodic entrancement, and composition. Liquescent is an aptly named jam: flowing, liquid funk. You can purchase the album off of his Bandcamp site, or, keep up to date of new tunes on his Soundcloud. Enjoy!

Here is a little trip hop tune with distorted breakbeats and pretty heavy bass, perfect for freestyling over. I don’t believe this song was on the website previous to the update, it’s available on the Origami Ham album. This song was done entirely on the Emu E5000 Ultra with samples from the Waldorf Microwave XT. Enjoy.
You can download the album in it’s entirety here.

First tune to start off the podcast. Welcome back.
This song started as a joke to make a fist-pumping, happy house track. Unce is Un (kick) and ce (hi-hat) to emphasize a 4/4 house beat. Also know as throat techno. I was going to do a series of these songs at some point with just vocal samples, maybe soon.
Released on He Thinks He Is Peoples in 2010.
