Episode 76: Arkia on Sound

This fall, Out There Atlanta presents a continuation of “Summer Sound Series,” a collection of interviews with artists who find inspiration in sound or directly use it in their works. 

 Arkia Jahani is a musician and visual artist. Arkia recently released The Science of Colors: Visionary Compositions for Contemplation Vol. 1, an album that combines field recordings taken in the Georgia woods with electronic manipulation. He’s currently working with producers in the Netherlands, as well as on a project with gloATL. Listen to the podcast to find out more.

Topics include: Finding your instrument, the sounds of different countries, and mustering the nerve to share the album.

Episode 45: David Stephens, puppeteer

It’s not every episode that gives you the chance to hear from a puppet and his creator. Luckily for you, we got a chance to sit down with David Stephens, the master puppeteer behind All Hands Productions, and his puppet Norbert. I think it’s safe to say, this is our first interview with someone on muppet wikia (here). This episode is also full of David’s banjo skills.

Listen here or download free from itunes

Topics include: puppet construction, playing the banjo with a puppet, and Aqua Teen Hunger Force

Episode 42: Music Grid

Musicgrid.me is a little bit different from the other music sites you’ve seen online. For one thing, they don’t alert the world every time you listen to Bryan Adams at work. Music Grid was started by Cliff Seal and Kyle Stapleton as a site that allows you to review music socially. It creates a space for you to get those trusted recommendations on albums you don’t know about from friends whose musical taste has been tested. Cliff and Kyle are Atlanta locals, but the site is starting to draw attention around the world.

Listen here or download on itunes (free)

Topics include: listening to music with the old man, albums, and high school connections

Read more about MusicGrid here on Wired or Mashable.

This week we nerd out on music with MusicGrid

There are people who still like albums and people who still seek out music not on the radio. Who do they rely on for tips on good, new sounds? Typically friends. Now, what if you could build a network that connects those people and allows them to review music socially? What would it do for you? It would save you constant emails, for one thing. It would be easier than sorting through Pitchfork for reviewers you trust. And if that site also provided links for listening and purchase of awesome music? Then it would have to be MusicGrid.me  Tune in Wednesday to hear us talk to Cliff Seal and Kyle Stapleton, the guys who started this thing in ATL and can frequently be spotted wearing Stonerider t-shirts.

Episode 38: The Viking Progress

We went this extra mile for this episode, all the way to the thriving Athens music scene to talk to the man behind The Viking Progress. Patrick Morales is a singer-songwriter and his newest album is full of songs he wrote while working as a marine biologist on commercial fishing vessels in cold northern waters. Luckily for us he returned to warmer climes to put out the album. It’s his music in this episode and if you’d like to hear more, go to his show March 30 at the Earl with Adron and Oryx.

There is life OTP. Hear all about it here or download it from itunes (free).

Topics include: life on a commercial fishing boats in Alaska, learning to play instruments, working as a caddy, and online gambling

Episode 27: Grocery on Home

This week we take you into Grocery on Home, a performance space within a home. You won’t hear garage bands at the Grocery; past acts include Lucy Wainwright Roche, Ben Sollee, and Kelly McFarling.  Grocery on Home is the home of Matt Arnett, but Grocery is just a fraction of what he does.  Matt and his family also run the Souls Grown Deep Foundation and Tinwood Media. Listen to find out more.

Warning: Turns out, Grocery’s acoustics are great for music, bad for cheap microphones.  The audio is sub par.  We edited the best we could, and have replaced the old mike. Future podcasts will be clearer.

Listen here or on itunes.

Topics include:

Why it’s called Grocery on Home, Matt’s first word, and believing in the quality of something, even if no one else does.
