Podcast 2: This Stone

This is my second podcast. Still experimenting, of course. A sketch. I used clips from recent recording of jaunts around the 1st and 2nd arrondissement with Cyrus, some sounds from my kitchen, and reading some of my own essays. The music is one of my own compositions, called This Stone. The goal is to master this medium well enough to produce entertaining and informative podcasts on cooking and gastronomy in Lyon. This will come. The third one will be much more focused. This one is just about the possibilities. 2.5 minutes long. Listen to this with headphones if you can!

I am sitting eating my lunch with the north wind howling and a temperature of -12c outside and as I listen to your music I am thinking of a light warm spring breeze and that flush of fresh spring green on all of the trees.
Thank-you for transporting me!!

Really lovely! The music, especially, and I also really loved the comforting, voluptuous cooking sounds. Chopping, perhaps?

I love the way your work is evolving, that now alongside the words and images we can experience new layers of sound and music, it makes the experience alive and sensory.

I had fun listening to your podcasts and the music was just loud enough without drowning out the words. Mine ended with the word "dollops" and was just about 2/3 of the way through. I don't know if it was my computer or if that is where it was supposed to end. I'd love to hear a podcast of you shopping at the outdoor markets with matching pictures. You are a talented woman Lucy!

Oh, Lucy, you have a lovely voice! And the music!

This really resonates with me - once upon a time I produced radio commercials and programs and really enjoyed painting a picture with sound.

You have done it!

Thank you.

Lucy!
Great job! I have to echo mimi here - as a producer of broadcast content I as well am caught in the spell of sounds, speech and their possibilities.
Bravo!
Encore!

Oh please, I know you're very busy with your lovely baby but could we possibly have more soundscapes. They are breathtaking.

I am sorry about the lack of podcasts - I have even written more music just for them and all I need now is equipment. My friend with the recorder moved away! Bummer, huh?
