Episode 196: Elif Yalvaç Interview

This is the 196th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You may be able to CLICK HERE TO LISTEN but note the shows are large files & this may not be the best way to listen. If you prefer, you can subscribe to the show via iTunes by sticking feeds2.feedburner.com/TheEpilepticGibbonPodcastMusicShow into the ‘Subscribe to podcast’ area & then you’ll get the new shows as they become available. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show is now appearing on Progzilla in alternate weeks). The last show was a festive special, but with this eppysode I present an interview I recorded back in September with the Turkish composer and musician Elif Yalvac. We have a feature album, or rather I should say that we have a feature EP, Elif’s debut release Cloudscapes, and there will be three tracks from that, plus there’s the usual eclectic mixture of music, with around half the tracks chosen by Elif and half by me. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 2 hours & 48 minutes. Downloaded file is 153.8 MB.
