British guitarist and composer Timothy Reid found a creative outlet in online collaboration during the pandemic. He found this podcast on his daily train commute in Osaka Japan. Lucky me (and you). He and I share the common threads of Kompoz.com and Peter Rand, who is a prolific member of the collaboration website Kompoz. Like me, Timothy was drawn to one of Peter’s compositions and has since recorded music with him. Timothy has also recorded with several other artists on and off of Kompoz. Our initial conversations leading up to this interview were about Timothy’s enjoyment of this podcast, which was heartwarming to hear.
Peter Rand co-wrote my latest release ‘New Gods Part 2,’ which dropped last Friday May 28th 2021. This means you can stream, purchase and or download it on most of the popular music services. Find direct links to some of those platforms on my website Robonzo.com. New Gods Part Two is my personal homage to Zeppelin, Genesis and prog rock with a little social commentary. I hope you’ll check it out, share it, download it and maybe add it to one of your playlists.
Timothy and I talk at length about his collaborations on Kompoz.com, how Kompoz collaborations helped him during the pandemic, his past and more recent work, and his musician life in general. Both Timothy and Peter Rand are prolific and versatile writers. You can find them both on Kompoz.com. You can also find Timothy at TomothyReid.com. See the uncut video version of this conversation on YouTube (link below).
I hope you enjoy my chat with Timothy as much as I did.
I recorded the intro and mid-roll for this episode in a hotel room using the Trackd Music app for iPhone. My usual usual microphone and audio interface setup didn’t make their way into my suitcase. Trackd Music to the rescue. I could have used my iPhone voice recorder, but Trackd Music is built for making sonic sense of a room, wherever you are.
