Shoreline of Infinity’s Soundwave
Episode Six

Episode Six

June 11, 2019

Welcome Travellers,

In this episode of Soundwave we're keeping it simple. One poem, one story, one interview, one song, minimum waffle from myself.

The reasons for that are twofold. Firstly,  I am being brazenly lazy. Secondly, the structure of this episode just doesn't lend itself to my waffling (if you do like my waffle about things like the correlation between sci-fi and cakes [see last episode] then there's still a bit at the end for you). The opening poem, short as it is, effectively lays out why sci-fi is so important and is something of a mission statement for the episode, if not the entirety of Soundwave.

It just didn't seem right to fill the gaps, and frankly nothing needed saying at that point so I've just decided to go straight into our nice, lengthy story that resonates with our own time. Certainly one to walk through your local wooded area to. I'm serious. Save this one up and go for a walk at the nearest convenient forest. You can thank me later.

Then we have a far reaching chat about science and science fiction on Sonic Space this episode between astrophysicist and SF author David L Clements and myself.

You might remember that we featured one of his stories on Episode Five, Something Fishy, narrated by Debbie Cannon.

It just flowed too nicely for me to waffle through. Don't worry though, I'm sure I'll feel the urge to ruin whatever excellent content we have next episode.

While I'm here, we’d really appreciate a kind review on iTunes, or indeed, whatever podcast platform you’re listening via.

Greetings Travellers, 

Firstly, allow me to offer my humblest apologies for the tardiness of this episode. An explanation is given in the episode itself, but ultimately, it's all my fault and I am sorry.

Rest assured I'll be doubling down in the near future and putting together another episode for you, the STG, to devour sooner rather than later. This will hopefully negate any time lost to our glorious cause of spreading the healing sounds of SF across the galaxy.

As part of my reparations I offer you this, a bumper episode of SF content of the highest order. We've got two meaty audio stories with fabulous writing and narration for you to get involved in punctuated by some poetry of equally high caliber.

We've also got a Sonic Space with Laura Lam, the fun and intelligent author behind the Micah Grey and Pacifica books.

And if that wasn't trying almost too hard to make up for the timing of this episode, we've also been gifted the experimental synth dreampop of L-Space to play out with.

If you wouldn't mind, please consider subscribing to the Soundwave levels on our Patreon. It really helps continue the production of this show, and as the Patreon grows, I'll be able to turn down unexpected jobs from animation studios because I'm forced to prioritise Soundwave and not the other way around.

The Stella Conlator Guild and our Patreon is still in its early days, but then the Imperium of Man wasn't built in a day.

Greetings Travellers,
 
On this episode of Soundwave we bring you an almost inescapable deluge of high quality SF content.
 
In what seems like an alarming early trend, our three stories this week are linked again by death, but while last episode emphasised the speculative aspect of SF, this instalment's are firmly in the science mode.
 
For Sonic Space I sat down for a very cosy chat with Sam Dolan, reviews editor of an award winning science fiction magazine you might have heard of. If you're a criticism nerd the unabridged version is also on Patreon, which finds us taking a deeper dive into literary theory and discussing The Death of the Author, genre, literary fiction, racist language in older fiction, authorial construction and responsibility and more.
 
I'm also delighted to bring you an exclusive from a favourite band of mine, Cellar Darling: an extract from their audiobook which accompanies their new concept album, and the track it pairs with.
 
As of writing you can't hear any of the audiobook outside of the physical special edition CD, and the poetic piece I've selected works beautifully as moody spoken word in its own right.
 
We've also got 3 audio stories for you to enjoy as you, read by Jonathan Whiteside Playwright/Actor, Sue Gyford and the debut of Voxtext Ben Blow.

Episode Three

Episode Three

April 1, 2019

Greetings Traveller,

in this instalment we're fleshing out the S that stands for 'speculative' in 'speculative fiction', as our poem and short story show us opposite sides of the great divide between life and death.

Also as a special treat we're proud to present you with a sonic experience that's well worth cracking out your posh headphones for. Our audio drama, Republic of David presents a scenario akin to hell, or possibly heaven if you're extremely far along the narcissism scale.

Our music this week is a dark synthwave piece that serves as the closing music to both the audiodrama and the podcast itself, so perfectly does it lend itself to both situations.

If you appreciate the extra effort of the podcast, could I encourage you to look at the Soundwave specific levels on our Patreon? It's less than a big cup of coffee.

In fact, why not go to your favourite coffee shop, listen to this with a brew, and marvel at how comparatively inexpensive our Soundwave Patreon levels are compared with what you've just ordered? Perhaps even become a Chrono Receptor or Receptor Interrolyst while you're there and know you can head back the next week and make it a tradition... mmmmmmmm coffee and sci-fi...

Welcome, Traveller.
 
On this episode we're shining a spotlight on the the electronic sci fi influenced music of Alex Storer, AKA The Light Dreams.
 
Since Alex is providing the incidental music of Soundwave, I thought it only right to introduce this already accomplished musician and artist properly.
 
As well as this episode's Sonic Space being a comfortingly nerdy interview between he and I, we're also replacing some of the usual incidental music with full length tracks of his taken from the breadth of his oeuvre.
 
To punctuate this we've also got some punchy prose and poetry concerning time travel, which nicely complement the otherworldly, synth vibes we've got running through the show.
 
They come in the form of Back in Time, by Jane Yolen and narrated by Danielle Farrow, and Time Travel Story by Richmond A. Clements, performed by Johnathan Whiteside.
So, I'll cut the waffle and let you get on with listening with the actual show. God knows Nyarlathotep knows I was in a particularly waffly mood during this one.

Episode One

Episode One

March 1, 2019

Welcome, Traveller, to this first proper episode of the Shoreline of Infinity podcast Soundwave.

In this opening episode we've got superior science fiction from across the art forms.

Our spoken word this week is linked by death and starlight.

We've got the haunting and poignant story The Starchitect, written by Barry Charmon and narrated by Sue Gyford.

That's followed by some sci-fi poetry in the form of the deceptive Starscape by JS Watts, narrated by Debbie Cannon.

Sonic Space makes its debut, hosted by me, RJ Bayley, in which I'm interviewing the award winning author Anne Charnock.

We're also rounding the episode off with some Japanese SF inspired music as we open the Nuclear Blast doors and listen to one of the giants of symphonic metal.

However you choose to listen to this episode, I hope you love it as much as I do. Probably won't though, I put it together.

Episode Zero

Episode Zero

December 19, 2018

Welcome traveller, to Episode Zero of Soundwave, a science fiction podcast brought to you by Shoreline of Infinity.

We thought we'd give you a Christmas treat before the first season kicks off proper in January.

In this episode you can hear what will be backbones of the podcast with audio stories, as well as a festive audio drama by our own dramatists, the Infinitesimals.

I your host, RJ Bayley, invite you to strap on your very finest pair of headphones, pour yourself your favourite drink and pull up your comfiest armchair next to the most questionably large fire you can build, and join us for the start of something most excellent.

If you celebrate Christmas, have a very merry one, and if you don't, please accept our wishes with the sentiment which they're meant, from your new SF friends, Soundwave.

~ RJ Bayley
