Sonitotum with Matthew Wayne Selznick 040: How to Fail

Are you good at failure? No? Maybe? Don’t worry. In episode 40 of Sonitotum with Matthew Wayne Selznick, I’m here to teach you how to fail.

Sonitotum is all about making things, finding success as we each define it, and staying healthy and sane in the process. Failure is inevitable along the way. It can cripple our ability and desire to make art, and if we aren’t making things, well, we aren’t going to find success.  And if we can’t make things and we’re not at least trying to find success? Well, heck, I don’t need to tell you that’s no way to stay healthy and sane.

So it’s important to know how to fail.

I have some experience in this. I’ve been told I’m pretty good at it! So you’re in good hands. 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.
