In retrospect, I probably should have commissioned artwork, but my thinking was “It’s only audio, and you don’t see with your ears. It’ll be fine!” But of course that’s wrong—you absolutely see with your ears. It’s one of the basic tenets of sound design: you see what you hear. Anyone with cinematic leanings would know this. Plus I forgot how albums usually have art. My bad. I’m new to this! I’ll get that fixed. In the meantime, here's the first episode of Here Be Dragons, with special guest Nathan Rice. We took a rather scenic route through our conversation, and I’m happy to report I was able to delay any actual writing by more than three hours.
