Last year I wrote about wanting to produce a podcast as soon as my web publishing software supported it. Thanks to a geek-fun all-nighter, of which Nathan and I have just arrived at the winning end, the technology is now ready.

My Schmonzcast will depict, in audio form, my ongoing musical journey. Examples:

  • recordings of me playing piano pieces I’ve learned fairly well
  • solutions to my music theory homework assignments
  • recordings of me improvising particularly well, perhaps, if I start doing that regularly again
  • the occasional spoken word
  • mysterious other clever ideas to be named later, after they deign to manifest themselves

Sound fun? I think so.

Schmonzcast #1: This short clip is my four-part harmonization of a given melody from last year’s music theory course. Heavy Brahms influence.
