The Bishie is all knowing and all powahful! Bow before his omnipotence!!

Hosted by Woody & Suzi Harris

Broadcast every Sunday
from 11:00AM to 3:00PM Pacific Time

Soundscape was born out of a passion for music and a love of the journey. Twice a month we develop a theme for exploration within the music. These themes could be about a particular kind of music, a single artist or band, or even something more expansive such as a the theme of flying. Really anything is fair game here. To develop this journey we rely on progressive rock, and improvisational/experimental music. We also rely on our listeners to help us bring the experience alive with their own suggestions. The Soundscape podcast has now been running for over 8 years and the inspiration for these journeys grows and evolves beyond anything we could have imagined. Your hosts Suzi and Woody Harris have had many years of experience in music from DJing to running a music store. We look forward to your participation in our adventure.

  • The theme of flight has been used in a few of our Soundscape episodes, but it is a very common metaphor for being free, going where one cannot go, or getting away from your troubles. In the same vein, falling has it's own meanings as well; losing touch, being out of control, the ground coming toward you very very fast, etc. Well this show has a little of both of these themes. We top it off with some inflight entertainment in the form of a perfect album side, and a short set of newer music.

    Soundscape will return in a few weeks with more great prog music. Theme suggestions are welcome but try not to get to specific, ambiguity is the best tool for theming a show. Perfect album sides are also welcome; just 6 songs of your choosing sent to woody@thedividingline.com

  • This weeks show grew from a seed to a tree. While there is some rhyme and reason to the choices, most of it was derived from a sort of mindtrip I went on with the music. There is more space rock and drone rock here than the average show, but then I know that many of you enjoy that anyway. Lots of new stuff comes out of the darkness so if you take the ride there are definitely a lot of gems along the way.

    Our next show will be in 1 month. Most of June will be taken up with conventions. But fear not Soundscape will return at the end of June with an all new set. Until then, if you are jonesing for some great music, please check out the powerhouse of other Dividing Line shows.

    Perfect Album Sides will be back in the next show, so if you are still looking for a chance to get your played, just send 6 songs to woody@thedividingline.com We would love to hear your suggestions.

    We wish you all a wonderful June and look forward to the next show- Cheers!

  • Don't let the theme fool you. For all of your DJs high falutent ideas and plans, there is not a lot of clarity to the theme. The clarity to find is in the way the music depicts the journey. The idea was that as we develop a sense of self, we go for an internal journey that starts as an inward struggle realized later as we reach out to others, seek help, and develop a better view of ourselves. The music does translate that journey, but my narrative of that does not do it justice. So this means that you the listener need to pay more attention the music than the man behind the curtain.

    We also have a great perfect album side from Mike Ehlers featuring some wonderful instrumental prog.
