Information – I believe in the past I’ve said Slow Dance Society rather than Slow Dancing Society. Drue says this is “no biggy”  but I apologise nonetheless.

Drue tells me that two albums are in the pipeline. The albums
are concept albums about Winter and Summer respectively. The first one, out
in Autumn, will be a very cold sombre sounding album while the second, to
follow in the Summer, will be something a little warmer in tone.

Thanks to Cam at Hidden Shoal for permision to play Slow Dancing Society on the podcast. Cam has asked me to point you in the direction of Hidden Shoal because it’s the labels 1st birthday (happy birthday from WWM) and they are giving away a new sampler album (with a Slow Dancing Society track on it) as well as other prizes.

Well Made Music 18

May 5, 2007

My name is Neil, welcome to Well Made Music.

Well Made Music features ambient, electronica, lounge, experimental and contemporary classical music from around the world.

To listen and/or subscribe to the podcast using iTunes click here.

All Well Made Music podcasts are available through the streaming player on the Well Made Music Myspace page here.

There is a change to the Well Made Music format: I’m doing all my speaking at the start and then playing all the music with no interlude for the remainder of the podcast. This way, except for the bit at the start, you won’t have to hear me wittering on. Leave a comment on the blog or e-mail me with your thoughts on the new format.

Music in podcast 18 is as follows:

Artist – Ai Yamamoto
Song – Guitar Letter

Dialect

also hints at an album coming out this year either from America or
Australia.

Artist – Aoyoma

Band members – Fabrice Mougin
Websitehttp://db1.amiestreet.com/aoyoma
Myspacehttp://www.myspace.com/fabricemougin
Information – Fabrice Mougin composes for television. The Aoyoma project was
born with these ideas in mind: to tell stories, draw paintings, create an
atmosphere and put characters on stage. With Aoyoma, unlike his work for
television, the film is imaginary. The song Caravane is about the desert and
it’s people.

progress so to speak”. Karl has a video recently uploaded to his Myspace
page. I’ve seen it, it’s nice work and you can view it here.

I would like to thank the bands, individuals and labels concerned for the
permission to use their work.
