The Signal: EP119


The Signal: EP119 – Exactly 45 minutes of songs for medical use only, precisely calculated to improve spinal alignment in modern primates and most models of robots. In this installment, we’ve got danceable pop from Canada, an LA artist incorporating sounds from Ethiopia and East Africa, UK hip hop, southern California pop punk, cool sounds from France, Russian surf and a Spanish language a capella cover. Lots of variety for you.

The file will be available only for a limited time so if you’re curious at all, click the links above and download away. The track list of artists is in the file’s id3 tags and notes are below.

The Signal: EP118


The Signal: EP118 – Exactly 45 minutes of of synchronized brain-bopping for your listening pleasure. Don’t worry. Brains are more resilient than we tend to give them credit for.

This time out, we’ve got bass-heavy grime and indie rock from the UK, some beats from California, a track that combines Ethiopian jazz with reggae production, cumbia from Colombia, and lots of other good stuff. The file is only available for a limited time, so grab it while you can. The track-list can be found in the id3 tags of the mp3 and I’ve added a few notes below.

The Signal: EP117

An endlessly pouring cup of coffee

The Signal: EP117 – Summer jamz now that summer is leaving. We present to you, humbly and with malice aforethought, 45 minutes of musical sounds and a couple moments of non-musical sounds.

As ever, the file can be gained by a click on the image above for a limited time only. If this is your first Signal mix, welcome aboard. There’s no cost to try and no cost to buy, so don’t worry about the fact that I don’t tell you what’s in the thing, forcing you to look in the id3 tags of the file to figure out which name goes with which track like some sort of techno-detective.

There are some notes below where numbers correspond to tracks for those looking for insight into the process, such as it is.

The Signal: EP116

The Signal: EP116 – Composed in a cafe in the international terminal of San Francisco Int’l airport (SFO). You’d think that might lead to an international travel theme, but it didn’t. It lead to the usual: 45 minutes of eclectic music from around the world. There’s a lot of instrumental stuff this time out, but we still fit in some rock and roll from Cambodia and a something-or-other from Morocco.

As ever, the file will be available for a limited time, so click the image or link above to grab a copy. You can decide later if you want to keep it. It’s 45 minutes of music that I personally vouch for. It’s a good time. Plus, you can’t beat the price.

Notes are below. I’m going to write them slightly later than these words you’re currently reading, but you won’t notice, because you’re in the future, when I’ve already found a free outlet at SFO to plug in and recharge.

The Signal: NAQ (never asked questions)

And Now It's Showtime

Nobody has ever asked for more information about The Signal but I’ve decided to write about this project of mine  anyway, because I’ve been doing it for over 10 years, so it must be important. There must be something to it.

So below you’ll find out a bit about the history of this ongoing sound project that has consistently found and maintained a listenership of at least 10 people or so.

The Signal: EP115


The Signal: EP115 – 45 minutes of global sounds, the product of a day off and an idiosyncratic library. If you have a free hour, then you could spend 7.5 minutes getting ready to be attentive and still have 7.5 minutes at the end to unwind and recover.

As is traditional, the list of included tracks are built into the mp3 itself, which you can download by clicking on the image above. The link will be available for a limited time only, so even if this is your first visit, it can’t hurt to grab it now and give it a listen later to see if it’s your kind of thing. If it helps any, upwards of 10 people listen to these mixes as they come out and they seem to enjoy them.

The Signal: EP114


The Signal: EP114 – On repeat, forever, a music mix to last ’til everything we know is dust and gravity surrenders. All other mixes can be shuffled off to homes, to play with every lost dog, to watch every soap opera, to eat spaghetti on the same day every week.

As with the previous 113 mixes, this one is available for a limited period of time. The image above links to a page where you can download it. It’s 45 minutes of music, and this time out we’ve got: a choral group team-up featuring artists from Tuva and Bulgaria, electronica, hip hop, rock from Australia, surf music from Spain, reggae from Argentina, pop in Portuguese from San Francisco, and meditations on forever. If you want to know details, you’ll find the tracklist in the id3 tags.

The Signal: EP113



The Signal: EP113 – 45 minutes of beats and noises, designed to accompany such diverse activities as hover-boarding, observing a hover-boarder, design and manufacturer of hover-boards, and whatever it is that you’re doing.

The file will be available for a limited period of time. I don’t know how long. It’s possible that as you’re reading these words, in some far-flung future we can’t even imagine, the file is already gone. I can’t imagine the disappointment you must be feeling. Hang in there, kitten.

If you like what you hear, the track list is in the id3 tags of the mix. Just download that sucker and use your mp3 player to take a look at the file’s properties.

The Signal: EP112

Gamera with label The Signal EP 112

The Signal: EP112 – Partying like giant turtles for 2015. 45 minutes of music for any 45-minute tasks you have to accomplish; a perfect accompaniment. I wonder if I’m going to go do some quick reading to find out if that semicolon is being used even remotely close to how it should be used. I think it’s wrong. Pretty sure that post semicolon bit needs to be a full, related sentence. Might be disqualified as a sentence fragment.

This file’s going to be online for a limited time only, so download away. We’ve got rock music, vaporwave music, the sound of foreign trains, distant mall music, hip hop, outlaw country, experimental music for cats, cumbia and funky organ. That’s a bunch! Holy cats! The track list can be read in the id3 tags of the mp3. Right-click on that sucker. Notes are below if you want to know more.
