Sonic Opus #1

At long last, our very first episode for the Sonic Opus podcast is free to listen to live! It's a little (very) long, but we broke it up into chapters for your listening experience and enjoyment. We go through a little history of music, reviews, a song analysis, and then talk about albums that helped shape who we are today.

Sonic Opus: That's It (Or Is It)

That's it. I'm starting this blogalog back up. I miss it. And yeah, I already have another blog, but what the heck. The more the merrier! Don't be surprised if I start another! So ha!

Anyway, a friend of mine and I are thinking about starting up a podcast on music discussion. It excited me, so I felt that this would be a great time to return to Sonic Opus. Here I am. This friend of mine, let's call him Kieran (because that's his name), is the actual brainchild of the podcast, but I gave him the idea, so he wants to work on it with me.

As far as what this podcast will be entitled or how often we'll produce episodes, I can't be certain. But it should be fun.
