Thanks to Daniel and Rebsie for doing their respective interviews, to my engineer without whom the interviews would not happen, and to you the listeners. Send me comments if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). See you for the next episode when, after a month of interviews, I’ll be returning to normality (such as it is!) and I’ll have lots more great music to play for you, including new tracks from Phideaux, Antique Seeking Nuns, and Pia Silvi.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this podcast!

    It made me realize something, too: that because i am already familiar with Rebsie and becoming more so with Luna Trick, that it was so much fun and better to hear the interviews. I loved learning about how things came about – the stories behind things, their collaborating, and the songs.

    So, i think that interviews are much better, exciting and easier for me when i’m already into the group or artist.

    I’ve had a difficult time keeping up even with the people whom i already love. And for some time, i’ve found it almost impossible to find interest in music and artists i’ve not yet heard about. It’s not that i don’t want to but my attention span has gotten terrible.

    But i was fully engaged in this one. It kept my interest throughout. I was very impressed with their skills, talent, intelligence, depth, and the knowledge they have about their subjects.

    Yes, i’d say that, for me, being a fan makes a big difference in interview format. For me, this was just as exciting as if it had been a Kate Bush interview.

    And then, of course, the wonderful music!

    Thanks for an entertaining and lovely evening. :)

    VERY interesting show, Eppy (and everyone is well-miked, to boot!). I’m very excited to hear more from the Alchymical duo………. fine project, that.

    Thanks as always for making the show; I’m looking forward to next month’s offering!

    Albeit listening to this podcast 2+ years late, it is fascinating. Am totally enjoying learning more about Rebsie’s and Daniel’s professional journeys, the background to a selection of their work and how their particular alchemy works for them separately and together. Thanks for the recent reminder about this podcast – in relation to the incipient release of Alchymical Muse’s “The Boar’s Head Carol” cd?
