Pipe Tune: The Damson Tree

The Damson Tree - A

Here is another pipe tune for you. I'm sorry it's been a few weeks! This has been for a couple of reasons. Part of it was trying to think about doing a tune with extra notes in it, I wanted to do a tune from our repertoire, but they all have high Bs in them. If you'd like to see some of our tunes, the dots for all of them are on our website. I've also been trying to get my head around writing the assignment up for the podcasting. (Not doing very well there at the momet, sigh!) I've also been asked to do some internet radio broadcasts based on these podcasts. The station isn't live yet, but I'll be recording some in advance. I've decided to use the first tune that I did for it here, so this podcast is a mix of audio that I recorded today and that I recorded for the radio.

Some news is that our new album is due out in about two weeks time, so there are audio files on our website if you'd like to have a listen. I've also included one track on this podcast for you to listen to. We're running a pre-release deal if you're interested in the album.

Finally I hope I haven't compressed this podcast too much. I suspect I was a little heavy handed on the compression, sorry about that! I hope it's ok and please, all feedback is gratefully received!

Vicki I got the CD yesterday, Very nice mix of tunes.

Regarding your request of information on Podcasts vs streaming. I find the RSS format to be far superior because it downloads right to my ipods for the road / imports right to Itunes for future listening.

I think the radio program is best in the RSS format too because for us folks who don't listen to the pop radio stations because the music lacks much in the well,,, Music Department, having a radio style broadcast on the road is really nice. I think the best part is the discovery of new artists (for us a million miles away...) Your two featured artists on Miskin at Easter were 'ear opening'. I find myself seeking their music CD for more.

Now, I think the sound quality on the RSS is superior to streaming and RSS at least on my end does not get clipped like a stream.

Enjoying your new CD.
