CerebralMix Episode 13: …Perchance To Dream
Host: SoundChaser & Sexy Suzy Soundz
This week’s episode is something of a surprise: a special request.
With the upcoming Ohio Linux Festival the second weekend in September,
one of the OggCastPlanet members asked if I could put together an
episode of the CerebralMix to help him fall asleep at night.
When I tried to inquire further about what kind of music he wanted for
such an episode he responded: “surprise me.”
So, here’s the surprise: an episode of the CerebralMix that reaches out
in all sorts of directions from abstract dark ambient, to classical, to
jazz and many genres in between…all while being softer and more
relaxing for sleeping, and perchance, for dreaming…

This week’s episode was a lot of fun to put together. I knew when I
started that I had a handful of recently acquired tracks I hadn’t been
able to use in other episodes. And I also had a few favorite tracks that
I had wanted to use, that just fit with this theme.
With all this material very quickly in place, I had the chance to play a
bit… I was able to sit down and come up with a way to assemble the
show that I feel will improve the overall quality, and this episode
reflects those improvements: silences at the beginning and end of the
tracks have been trimmed more cleanly, levels are matched between tracks
better, the segues are more consistent, and the timing of the
transitions are better.
So, what does this mean for the show overall? It means I will be
able to focus more time selecting and researching materials for the
show. It means that I will be able to develop more themes and more
surprises: I will be able to focus on the more human elements, rather
than on the process of assembling the show.
All of this just goes to show the power of Free Software. None of this
would be possible without the tools available to me from the Open Source
community. I owe a major debt of gratitude to the Open Source community
for providing me the tools to make it so much easier to explore the
sounds between thoughts, on The CerebralMix.
