We have been getting a lot of emails and messages from folks who like the new audio format of The Daily Frail.
Everybody wants to know why we are taking the show back to its audio-only roots.
To put it simply, audio engages your imagination. When I ask you to play an exercise with me or to play back a note you have to listen and then think about your next step.
As old DJ’s my father and I are aware of the raw power of an audio signal.Video can be great, but it can be a passive medium. You sit and watch a video file. With audio even entertainment requires your imagination to work. Listen to a bit of the old radio horror show Lights Out! for a taste of what your imagination can create with a bit of sound and suggestion.
I started The Daily Frail back in 2005 as an audio-only show. After YouTube simplified video we made the switch always intending to supplement the workshops with audio material. Now that we have 790 workshops on YouTube (wow!) we can go back to audio workshops for a bit. We are having a blast.
Give these audio episodes of The Daily Frail a shot. If you are not sure about what I am doing, play the segment back a few times and experiment. You will learn a lot more this way than you would passively watching a video.
We will be posting video files alongside the audio workshops in the near future. We will also be bringing back our podcast, Keys to the Highway. There is a lot of cool stuff in the works.. I can’t wait!
