This podcast is a labor of love in many aspects. For those of you who don’t know, the writer Eddie Louise and I (Chip Michael) are married and been together for a long time. We started Sage and Savant as a way to do something creatively together. Next month’s episode, Of Trainwrecks and Heartaches, is a nod to Valentine’s Day–a chance to explore romance. Again, for those who don’t know us, we are enthusiastically romantic. While we don’t need a specific day to show affection for each other, we aren’t going to pass up on a chance to be particularly mushy. Without giving away too much, the upcoming episode is a fine example of that.
Chip Michael wrote over 40 minutes of backing music specifically for episode 205. Listen to the music without the dialog.
There is a lot of music in this episode, as Dr Sage attempts to find the connection between modal music and transmigration. As a composer, I was able to explore the sound of Renaissance period instruments and creating themes using the modal scales.
