New Music!

I have new music for the podcast.

Hey folks!

I’m glad you’re here today. I’m mean…I’m glad you’re here everyday, but–

a podcast for creative people, by creative people
On APPLE, SPOTIFY, or wherever you get podcasts!


Anyway. I made a few new tracks that I may use on the podcast in the future. Mostly as segue music from intro to interview, or from one segment to another. You know, not stuff I’ll put on iTunes or anything. Just something to signal a change, and maybe to use as low-playing background music for some segments.

Feel free to comment but (as always): If you’re going to be mean, at least be funny.

This first one is roughly a twenty second track looped for 18 minutes. Why so long? So I can cut it shorter (takes 2 seconds) rather than make it longer (takes 2 minutes) for custom timing.

Song 1 (Continuous loop after about 20 seconds)

“Song 2” is a fun one. It’s repetitive however, it is not a loop. The end veers off in a slightly different direction. This would be a good one for shorter segues, I think. What do you think?

Song 2

Finally, this song is something I put together more because I wanted to do a quick improvised track with this particular effect. It’s one I wouldn’t normally write songs with/for–I’m more of an acoustic guy usually.

Song 3

I alway claimed to be a musician, never a talented one. So if you thought you were gonna hear some actual songs…


I guess I’ll throw in Creative Ops’ theme song.

OK, it’s not really the theme song. The “theme song” is a looped version intro/bridge of an actual song called “Longsleeves”. It’s a song I wrote and performed. The performing part was tricky. I was in a studio in Virginia. First they had me record the guitar track. Then the drums. Then the bass guitar, before finally doing split vocal tracks. I’m amazed at what real music producers can do with minimally talented artists:

“Longsleeves” is a song about a girl addicted to heroin. Like most songs about heroin, it’s strangely upbeat…

Thanks for stopping by. If you do listen to Creative Ops, please leave a REVIEW as well as a RATING! Believe it or not it helps the show get seen by more eyes. You can review it on APPLE, SPOTIFY, or wherever you get podcasts!

I’m super grateful for you either way. Here’s the last few episodes, if you’ve yet to hear them:

Goodbye, folks! (For now…) Creative Ops

Find me, Christopher Tallon, slinging my novel Switchers in-person the next few weekends: September 8 & 9, 5p-11p, After Dark Art Market, Canal Park in Grand Rapids, MI (shout out to Lions & Rabbits Center for the Arts for the event) September 16, 10a-1p, Author's Alley, Hyne Alley, Brighton, MI (thank you to 2 Dandelions Bookshop for the opportunity) .   .   . Goodbye, folks! (For now…) I'm not "ending" the show. Let's be clear there. I just need to free up time. I'm in the middle of writing another novel and I still have yet to record the audiobook for my first novel. So I'm going to be doing those two things mainly in the time previously spent booking, recording, editing, and promoting the podcast. HUGE THANKS to all the listeners who got a copy of my debut novel Switchers. You guys are amazing, creative, supportive people. I appreciate you very much. For the first few months, you were the only audience I had. I hope you'll stay subscribed so we can catch up when the show returns. And I might do an episode here or there while on hiatus. There are people and things I still want to talk to and/or about. And I'll probably use the podcast to give updates on the new book as it progresses and whatnot. Stay creative. Thanks for listening. I'll talk to you again.   Your friend in creativity, Christopher Tallon
