Sonitotum with Matthew Wayne Selznick 034: Survey Says…

Anyone depending upon others for the success of their art (in other words, all creators) will benefit from the insights I acquired in this exercise. Give it a listen!

The Music!

The opening theme song of Sonitotum is “Anastasia” written, performed, and recorded by yours truly, Matthew Wayne Selznick. You can hear or buy the full song on YouTube, Spotify, Amazon.com, iTunes, or just about anywhere you can buy or stream music online.

The closing and interstitial music is a little ditty I call “Gwinton,” also by yours truly, Matthew Wayne Selznick. It’s super-short and really just a looping thing, so it’s not available outside of the show.

On both songs, I play a 1972 Gibson Ripper bass guitar and a Fender “Bullet” Squire electric guitar. On “Anastasia,” the drums are performed on an Akai Professional MPD218 MIDI drum pad controller. For “Gwinton,” the drums are royalty-free loops found in the excellent Mixcraft Pro Studio software, which was also used to record, mix, and master both “Anastasia” and “Gwinton.”

Podcast Production and Hosting

Sonitotum is usually recorded using an Aurycle a460 large diaphragm studio condenser microphone through a Behringer U-Phoria UMC202HD (audio interface for directly connecting microphones and musical instruments to a computer). The show is edited and mixed in Adobe Audition. The episode files are hosted and delivered by Zencast.fm; the website is hosted by Dreamhost.

  • Hey Matt,

    Just searched my preferred podcast directory to see if you’d pushed anything out lately and discovered the conversation you had on another podcaster’s show, “The Ambiguous Podcast Solution”. I think you maybe mentioned participation in that in your most recent podcast episode.

    Good stuff! I particularly enjoyed learning how you first heard about podcasting. Also enjoyed hearing your views on content exclusivity.

    I hope whatever you’re working on today (as in, literally today, or this week, or this month) feeds you both physically and spiritually! Take care, man.

      Thanks, Harold! To give you an idea of the last twelve ~ eighteen months… I had no recollection of appearing on this show until you mentioned it. Had to go look it up. I’m glad you enjoyed it… and apparently I need a very long vacation!
