Hit me like a passing train. ...and now it's gone.
The introductory podcast to this series is so moving, I got a lump in my throat the first time I heard it. I am stunned and amazed to have stumbled on such a unique and masterful conceptualization of music, streamed from the ether to my phone during my evening commute.
Not only this, but the devestatingly subtle humor, clever narrative devices and heavy ambient atmosphere make this podcast more than just a lecture series. Its an ingeniously crafted experience that is completely fascinating!
I feel so lucky to have found this podcast. I can't bring myself to think of where this thing might have gone had the author continued making them. It seems like the author stopped after only 8 episodes.
To leave something this spectacular in this incomplete state seems a shame.
Fascinating content, unbearable presentation.
This podcast presents an interesting approach to exploring and understanding music, and I wanted to listen to the whole thing. Sadly, the author's use of incessant background drones and lo-fidelity vocals renders the listening experience impossibly grating. I'd like stress how interesting the content promised to be; unfortunately, the means have rendered the message intolerable.
The host of this series is articulate and knowledgeable about music theory. His knowledge of audio recording and mixing, however, seems to be sorely lacking. It sounds like I'm sitting in the bottom of a vast, empty cistern, surrounded by a swarm of bees, while the narrator's voice crackles faintly out of a speakerphone. I would love to hear a version of this podcast without all the forced eeriness. But for now it's unlistenable.
