Sorry for the inconvenience but we are having technical difficulties.
Something went wrong during a theme update. The posts are all still here, the stream is still live but the navigation and side bar are not displaying right.
Please be patient while we try and fix things.
Let’s Talk About RAM, No Not PC RAM, RAMusic
RAM, Daria Musk, Jeff, DJ Angel and I spent so much time on line during an interview that it is turning into one marathon project to edit it. I decided to have this one focus more on RAM. No not the stuff you put in your mother board but the man who plays bass guitar with Daria. RAM is much more than just a bass player he is a composer and musician in his own right. He is very proficient with instruments electronic and computer musical instruments. In fact he worked on the first real computer instrument, the Fairlight CMI.
RAM was also part of group called Present Dreams and they have four CDs available on . If you like stuff like Synergy and Tangerine Dream, you should definitely check this music out.
As I mentioned in the notes for part one of this interview, I am not keeping things in the same order as we did them live on the stream. In this segment you will get to hear something we kept going back too, how the Internet community, mainly Google Plus, impacted these to artist in a positive way. One of the things that I am sure every listener will notice is that Daria Musk and RAM really appreciate their fans and the Google Plus community.
I have often mentioned that what I enjoy the most about being a podcaster is being the middle man between the artists and the listeners. However, with today’s recent tech advances, that particular role may well be on it’s way to obsolescence. Musicians can now simply interact directly with listeners… even perform hangout concerts on the Internet… I so love the new media order.
Part One of an Interview with Daria Musk and RAM
Daria Musk and RAM seem to like to go long on many things. Fear not though, for while it may be possible to have too much of a good thing, that is not possible in this case. The last Google Hangout Concert went seven and a half hours. This “thirty minute” interview went about two and a half hours.
While there were some, tech glitches, some VOIP skip, a fan in the background, a motorcycle or two, a semi truck, etc… Thanks to the marvels of real time compression and Audacity software, I bet had I not mentioned it, you would not even notice.
I tried to keep as much of it as possible. Well, truth be told, I tried to keep as much as what RAM and Daria said and as little as possible of what DJ Angel, Jeff and I said. The night we streamed this live, I told Daria and RAM that I might split it into two or three parts, when I emailed Daria yesterday, I was thinking more like four or five… As I edit it today, I fear I may never leave the studio. There is just simply too much good stuff.
How About a Daria Musk Day?
“Pick of the Day” was not originally about what day it was. To be honest, it still isn’t. It is an excuse to promote and share an independent artist. With so many organizations choosing this day and that day, why can’t a streaming radio station pick one of it’s own?
With that in mind, I am going to make this day Daria Musk Day. I am doing so because I intend to spend most of my day editing a long interview with her and RAM. Both are talented musicians and composers who blessed us with over two and a half hours of their time. Her and RAM created on heck of an Internet buzz when they streamed live via Google Hangout. They had over 9000 viewers from over 100 countries as they streamed live and interacted with fans for seven and a half hours.
