Carnival of Space-The Musical!

On 9/27/07 the traveling "Carnival of Space" will be pitching tent at www.wanderingspace.net. I've made 3 pieces especially for the carnival. The first two have been combined with a little expositionary dialogue to make a radio drama we'll call "Carnival of Space-The Intro." Play it in the embedded player below, why don't cha?

If I get around to it or if I have any requests I'll be putting up the two musical parts separately for folks to also use as they please in podcasts, film, blogs, etc. I also made a funky lil' space jam we'll call "Carnival of Space-Funky Fresh" because that's what it is. Dig it in that funky embedded player below.

To some folks "Space music" is a sort of sub-genre of ambient music (for more see Wikipedia "Space Music)." I'm not sure how many sub-genres should be made of ambient music, which is fairly minimalistic with not a lot happening, but I do like some of this stuff. And it is fun to make. Back when I was first discovering the joys of listening to podcasts and when I used to operate a machine on a factory floor I discovered and enjoyed a particular space music podcast made by a groovy dude in the Netherlands. Here's a link to his latest website :http://spacemusic.nl/Podcast.html

Some people like to have this type of thing just playing in the background as they relax, meditate, enter data in spread sheets, make sweet sweet space love, or launch into actual outer space. Of course space music also serves a purpose in space films, whether they be fictional of non-fiction.

I've made a bunch of music I think people could describe as space music. Below are a few examples. You may need to "allow pop-ups" to play these songs, and you might want to open the player in another window or tab. As always these songs are available for free through Soundclick.
  1. Science Nature Space 23

  2. Space Music Boot Strap 2nd Draft

  3. Gonna Be Swell

  4. Hillbillyspace

  5. Openended

  6. Space Age Theme

  7. Undertow
Oh yeah, if you want to hear some more music you can go to my website PodcastTroubadour.com where I've got most of my recent and not so recent stuff. A wide range of music that could be described as Funky, Quirky, Ambient, Pretty, Silly, Soundtrack, Instrumental, and stuff I've made for specific purposes like podcasters. You'll see below I've recently been having some luck and fun making songs for the Tom Green Show, but if you go back to the older posts you'll see I've made music for a bunch of different podcasters.
