This week we’ll look at Anima Mundi or the ‘Soul of the World’. Thought to be a vital force that permeates the earth, the Anima Mundi is believed to be the feminine creative power of God who nourishs the material world. Connecting to the world through creation, we’ll hear from Mindseye, Planet Boelex & Lisa’s Antenna, MEDL4, Kopasetik, Frequency Decree and In Vitro. We last heard from this New Zealand-based artist on episode 197. Here is ‘Mindseye’
For the last fifteen years Idyllic Music Podcast has been uncovering and featuring songs by independent downtempo electronic music artists. Many of these DIY bands have found freedom in the relative low cost of modern software and instruments. Creating their artistic vision became affordable and thousands of ideas sprang forth. Electronic Music can be played on digital instruments or use sampled analog recordings or studio manipulation to create new sounds. Downtempo means the songs are not hurried or frantic, instead they unfold. You will encounter a variety of rhythms and music genres from around the world including Trip Hop, Chill-Out, Jazz, Ambient, Lounge and Dub. The tunes are subtle and melodic on the Idyllic Music Podcast. All our podcasts are evergreen, undated and universal. We try to provide programs you are unlikely to find anywhere else.
When we uploaded our first episode of Idyllic Music in 2006 the podcasting landscape looked very different than it does now. Most podcasts used to be music podcasts sounding a lot like underground FM radio. In 2006 there were websites like music.podshow and the Podsafe Music network offering podcasters ‘podsafe’ music or (CC) Creative Commons copyrighted songs. Idyllic Music has been committed to the promotion of the artists who have allowed us access to their work whether by (CC) or special permission. We provide clear links to the relevant artists websites, updated if possible. Each episode’s transcript also mentions the original source. As the focus of podcasting has turned towards interviewing, storytelling and personality driven programs, we main true to our first episode‘s goal to discover, play and promote independent music.
