Remembering La Alberca (the audio post)

A long time ago, my uncle Miguel and aunt Ilse in La Alberca.

A while ago I published an essay about returning, after 25 years, to La Alberca, a village in the western end of Castilla y León. It seemed quite popular with readers, so I decided to do an audio version of it, since there are probably many subscribers to my podcast who might not come to the blog. I’m also dabbling with a new keyboard I bought recently. So this is the first time I’ve ever added my own music to an episode. Let me know what you think. Thanks for listening.

Madrid is Calling You

After a tremendous response to the binaural soundscape I did of Madrid’s Rastro–you said, “¡Más, más!”–I got right on it. Here it is. Remember, you must wear earbuds or headphones to enjoy the three-dimensional sound experience. I hope you like it, and if you do, it would be a big help if you leave a review on iTunes for me (click the link and then hit the “View in iTunes” button, where you’ll see the menu for Ratings and Reviews). Thank you for your support!

Madrid’s Rastro: A Feast for the Ears

My latest podcast takes you on a sound-rich tour of the Rastro. Using custom built microphones and a special setup, I recorded this in binaural audio, which is incredibly immersive and three dimensional. You’ll feel like you’re there. If you’ve never heard binaural audio recordings before, you’re in for a treat. (To get the effect, you have to wear headphones or earbuds.)

I’d love to hear your comments! Thanks for listening.
