[audiocast] Worlds Apart


#1

(I didn’t see a category for audio, so I am dropping this here)

Since I’ve been playing around with audio (DJing, podcasting, radio DJing) for the last +10 years (“playing”, since it has always been a hobby), and I love Netrunner’s setting, I decided to smash these two passions together and share the results with you. I also asked a musician friend from Australia to “guest star” with a few of his favourite tunes (he’s not a Netrunner player… yet ;-)).

We’ve already got the second part’s playlists ready, so expect more! I will post updates to this thread.

Worlds Apart vol. 1


#2

Hey there, Corps and Runners.

Worlds Apart 2 has landed! Thanks to everyone who listened to #1, we hope you will enjoy the second installment as well.

The second volume runs a little over 90 minutes and features P45K with the opening mix and yours truly with the follow up.


#3

Exile man, I bookmarked your stuff and just got to it today! This stuff is phenomenal work, your small interludes aren’t distracting and help pace me while I’m zoning out.

I’m working on a project and when track 2 of Worlds Apart 1 came on I couldn’t stop smiling.

Personally, electronic music isn’t something that I know a lot about, so I can really enjoy it when it is thematically curated like this.

Thanks for doing this man, I will be listening for sure when you release more; I can’t say enough good things about it.


#4

Thank you for your kind words, @Chill84!

I am happy to hear that the time me & P45K put into selecting tracks and mixing them into something coherent turned into something nice for you and other listeners.

More to come, definitely - we’re on a minor festive break here, but the playlists are being put together as we speak ;-).


#5

My only criticism is that I didn’t know of this before. This is really cool and the sort of thing that I can really get behind and enjoy. Massive props for what you’ve created already, this is so, so good for listening to as background music whilst making something.


#6

Thank you for your kind words, @Xenasis! Your support is definitely appreciated and does not put any pressure on the mixing process for #3. at. all. :wink: (joking!)

Honestly, I’m very glad and grateful that what we do has an appreciative audience out there. Cheers!


#7

…it’s been a while - thank you for your patience!

Friends, Runners, sararimen, lend me your ears… Worlds Apart 3 is here. 1h39m of sounds we hope you may find intriguing, at the very least.


#8

knocked it out of the park again, finally got to hear the whole thing.


#9

Thank you once more - #4 is in the making.


#10

We are here, one more time, for your listening pleasure: Worlds Apart 4 - 1h52m of sounds from then and now for the times yet to come.

A special offer to all the loyal Stimhackers - would you like to take a small part in Worlds Apart 5? Send me a private message and we’ll talk about the details.


#11

Good stuff!

Could you add a tracklist in the description from now on perhaps? I know Mixcloud shows the tracks that are being played currently, but I’d like it for a reference. :slight_smile:

#14

dude, I just started listening to worlds 5, and this one is probably the best one yet!


#15

Thanks for the kind words. That means we may be doing something right, after all.


#16

Here’s a solid criminal jam I’ve been listening to while working on fanfic stuff. A lot of the Spinnerette self-title reminds me of Andromeda. This and ‘ghetto love’ at least.


#17

‘fanfic stuff’ - Android fanfic stuff? Pray tell us more :smile:

In the meantime, I’ll look into putting more guitars into #6.


#18

Yes, and listening to stuff like your cast puts me in the zone.

I do love guitars, but I am an electronic music newbie, which is another reason I love Worlds Apart. Do you do any other audio/sound projects?


#19

I hope you’re already sharing (or planning to) those fanfic pieces. Android is a great setting, ripe for story-telling.

I used to DJ at a few parties (alt/goth/electro/indu/metal) back in the day, trying to get back into it, but since I moved countries, my contacts dried out and I need time to get back into the swing of things. I sometimes go live on air to do a metal-mostly show at a friendly net-frequency in my native language. All the stuff I cared to share so far is accessible from the same account that hosts Worlds Apart. The radio shows are more of a fun thing with a lot of randomness thrown into them, so they’re not fit for re-listening imho.

At the moment I’m diving deep into The Fahrenheit Project collection for more ambient inspiration - check it out.

I can also definitely recommend the online-only friend’s mixes inspired by Deus Ex - CM knows her stuff :wink:


#20

It took us a while to get things rolling again, but here we go, just in time for Worlds Day #2 :wink:
