PONDERCAST ON TOUR THIS FALL IN CANADA
TOUR DATES BEGIN OCTOBER 9
This fall, Laurie Brown will take Pondercast on the road for the first time with a series of dates throughout the East Coast and Toronto. With her will be Pondercast collaborator Joshua Van Tassel creating live soundscapes while Laurie spins a new Pondercast on how to stay human as the world tilts in new and strange ways. All the intimacy of her much-loved CBC radio show The Signal, but live, in a room filled with fellow explorers. Full tour dates and tickets can be found below.
In Episode 20 : Altered States, Brown invites you to just hang out for about 2 hours with the perfect musical accompaniment, a new album of ambient music called States. Three musicians: Robbie Grunwald, James Bunton, and Joshua Van Tassel have each contributed 3 pieces that are each 11 minutes long.
If you don’t have much experience with ambient music - that’s cool. Let Laurie talk you through it. Everyone needs what ambient music can do for us. You may even find an ‘altered state’ by the end of the Pondercast.
Plenty of time for your mind to wander, for you to sink into the couch, or read, or sleep or, or, or... For when you seriously need to slow down....let’s hang together and do just that. You can buy each of the full States albums, by Grunwald, Bunton, and Van Tassel here : https://common-noise.bandcamp.com/
Pondercast is for explorers – it guides you to the clouds for a mind-bending view. Laurie Brown (formerly of CBC’s The Signal) sparks some new thoughts as the soundscapes of Joshua Van Tassel help you ponder the night, being human, and, of course, music.
Recently, Killbeat Music partnered with the team at Pondercast to bring you Ponderbeat, a series of special episodes featuring selections curated by Brown from some of Killbeat’s latest releases. Listen to the first Ponderbeat Episode here.
