"riffing" by gbmediadesign

No hard-and-fast theme to this week’s show and playlist. But, one thing I noticed in collecting the tracks for the live radio show was a number of compositions exploring the power in riffing and expanding on a simple melody or chord structure. Don’t let the pared down melody lines or simple composition fool you into thinking it is not captivating, aurally engaging, or immensely powerful. Curious? Good! Listen to all of today’s featured tracks by visiting the show’s playlist and see if you can spot the tracks that represent this idea. Shoot me a message if you want to share your discoveries with me directly. Thanks!

Also, please checkout the fourth Alloy podcast episode featuring my conversation with musician and new renaissance artist, Elizabeth A. Baker. You can find all you need to know about that episode here. Lend an open ear and give it a listen. I thoroughly enjoyed my conversation with Elizabeth and hope you do as well.

Finally, don't forget that you can listen to all of the music from the last episode, “Spring Mix” (click here). This week's artwork, “riffing” is by yours truly. Thanks for listening!
