Bit Depth 276 - US Immigration with Stephanie Peñate
Stephanie Peñate joins me yet again again because I am not done  discussing US immigration. Even though we talked a while, mostly me  ranting, I feel like there’s still so much more to discuss regarding the  US immigration system, so be prepared to hear more about it in the  future. What we did talk about: Steph’s experience as a child of  immigrants, the challenges migrants face when trying to legally or  illegally enter the country, the ways in which the system encourages and  discourages certain behaviors, James Q. Whitman’s Hitler’s American Model and how the Nazi regime admired and was inspired by US race law, the  remnants of the US’ eugenicist policies today, the medical exam all  Green Card applicants have to go through, why migrants would turn to  crime, labor shortages, and much more. Ever the selfless person, Steph promoted two different causes instead of their own social media, so here are links to those: All Power Book Club Border Kindness I highly suggest listening to episode 275 before listening to this one.

I like to get to know people on a deeper level, discuss why they do what they do and why they believe  what they believe. I usually record two podcasts at a time, with the first being an interview unlike others you've heard: I ask about spirituality, God, free will, human nature, and more. Then, once the guests and I have broken down our walls, we're able to have a freeform conversation on the second podcast.  Bit Depth has been going since 2016 and I've interviewed 100+ guests and recorded 200+ podcasts. Get to know others and yourself a little bit better. Love never fails. It's going to be ok. I might be wrong.

She was on Bit Depth with Melissa Wimbish on episode 221, but I was glad to have her again to talk about herself. We talked about music, photography, spirituality, and death. There’s a lot of noise on her end because there were people doing yard work at her parents’ house where she was staying, but I hope you can understand that life happens sometimes, and the spontaneity of life and conversation will always intertwine, so instead of rescheduling or redoing the podcast, I decided to keep it and work with the audio. Anyways, I hope you check out Britt’s stuff on her website: https://outcallsband.com/

Michael Murphy is my friend Meghan’s dad, and he works in medical response for disasters and crises. Basically, he helps keep things going as smoothly as possible at hospitals when disaster strikes. While it seems to be appropriate for me to have a guest that works in that field for the current COVID-19 epidemic, we didn’t talk about that, deliberately, in order to not add to the confusion surrounding that. If you’re looking for something about that, there’s plenty of official information on that from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control.

Bit Depth 195 BONUS - Sounds Welcome - Albums of the Decade
Well, this isn’t Bit Depth. But it does include Santiago Ramones. Sounds Welcome is a podcast by Kaelan Deese where he has music, news, interviews, social justice, and thought-provoking debates. This is actually the last episode of that podcast, and it features Jackson Fritts (with a short performance from him as Chameleon Factory), Tai Phan, Kaelan Deese, and myself, Santiago Ramones. We discussed our top albums of the decade, for which we each made lists. A quick note about audio: there were some errors in the audio that caused random snippets of sound to be cut out, so you’ll likely hear audio dropouts at the ends of words or in the middle of sentences. I tried to clean it up as much as I could, but I can’t do much about missing sounds. Regardless, you can still pretty much understand everything, although Jackson and I had to share a microphone, so you’ll hear a lot of volume differences between us. Lastly, I don’t have the other guys’ lists, but here’s mine, not in order of preference, but in order of release: Gotye - Making Mirrors (2011) Björk - Biophilia (2011) Disasterpeace - FEZ OST (2012) Death Grips - The Money Store (2012) Woodkid - The Golden Age (2013) Darren Korb - Transistor: Original Soundtrack (2014) Modest Mouse - Strangers to Ourselves (2015) Son Lux - Bones (2015) Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool (2016) clipping. - Splendor & Misery (2016) Brand New - Science Fiction (2017) Everything Everything - A Fever Dream (2017) Moses Sumney - Aromanticism (2017) Definitely check out Sounds Welcome: https://anchor.fm/kaelan-deese

REPOST: Bit Depth 136 - Breck McGough
In September of last year, I had Breck McGough on my podcast. I figured I’d repost his episode with some of his music at the end to promote his Graduate Composition Recital which is tonight at 7:30pm in Radke Fine Arts Theater at UCO - 100 North University Drive, Edmond, OK 73034, Edmond, OK 73034. The pieces at the end are “Lullaby”, “Psychokinetoscope: Hommage a John Carpenter” and “Roses in December: In Memoriam Kathleen Rose”. Breck McGough is a composer and singer that I know through UCO. We’re in a trio of electronic music called Power Cycle, which includes Jonathan Edwards (Bit Depth 126). Breck and I talked about music and spirituality. You can find some of his music on his SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/breck-mcgough

Sable and I have been together for almost ten years, so we’ve kinda been working towards and discussing our wedding for a while, and now that it happened, we had stuff to say about it.

Bit Depth 188.5 - Wedding
Sable and I are getting married on October 10th and I’ve let go of enough shame to be able to ask for assistance. Weddings and honeymoons are expensive and there are lots of costs that nobody sees coming. So there’s ways that you can help us out: tgt.gifts/sabliago is the best way of doing so immediately - you can buy us stuff from Target, where we’re registered. Another way of doing so is the common ways you can support me anyways: santiagoramones.bandcamp.com and anchor.fm/santiagoramones are ways that you can throw money that will count as supporting my music or the podcast, but the platforms take a percentage, if you’re down with that. Lastly, you can simply Venmo me money directly, so you can find me @SantiagoRamones Not hard, right? Anyways, any support helps, and if you’d rather just support by leaving a comment or review, that helps a ton, too, even if it’s not with money, but it lets me know that people have my back! Thanks for being a listener and thanks for your support!

REPOST: Bit Depth 47 - Dustin Ragland
This episode is a repost of episode 47 with Dustin Ragland. It was originally posted on December 29th, 2016. Since then, I’m sure he and I have grown as people and musicians. I’d love to have him on again sometime. The reason I’m reposting this episode is because he has a show on Friday, July 19th at Commonplace Books at 6:30pm. He’s doing a live poetry reading and music inspired by Dostoevsky, which should tell you just how much of a genius Dustin is. I also have a show that evening at The Patriarch in Edmond, which starts at 8pm, so if you want to make it to both, you can. Anyways, here’s the text from the original: “Dustin Ragland is a musician, teacher, producer, father, and many other things. He's incredibly smart and I thoroughly enjoyed having him on the podcast. He's one of my favorite teachers at ACM (but I have too many favorites). You can find him and his work at www.youngweather.com”

Bit Depth 175 - Sample Rate 8 - Machinations: Graduate Composition Performance
This series of pieces is an anthology series exploring ideas in technology, humanity, and the future. Like Black Mirror but with music. These pieces were performed at my Graduate Composition Performance on April 11th, 2019 at the UCO Jazz Lab as part of the requirements of my Master of Music Composition degree. Due to the nature of how much work every music student is given each semester, some of the performances are not perfect, but I am happy with how well the show went. I highly recommend that you go to my website and watch the videos and look at the program notes with lyrics to really get the most out of the content. It was video recorded by J.R. Edwards and the audio was produced by Bryan Mitschell. The artwork was drawn by Nathan M. Kent and the Graphic Design for the poster and booklet was by Sable Ann.

Bit Depth 151 - Sample Rate 7 - Unreleased Demos
Since I am still bad at organizing things, instead of an interview this week, I decided to show you, loyal listener, some songs that have yet to be released by me. All of these were written as far back as 2017 and I had made demos for a class. Some have been updated or refreshed but they are still essentially demos - proofs of concept rather than full tracks. 00:18 - “We Are One” - This was my strange attempt at making a “world peace”, hippie style song. I think if I were to do a full production of this, I would need “We Are the World” levels of involvement. I tried using science as motivation for unity. This is a song that is not likely to be released on a full album any time soon because I don’t feel like it fits for me as an artist, nor do I think it fits with any album concepts I have percolating in my mind at the moment. I’m somewhat embarrassed of the song, I think, but it is what it is, so here you go. 04:16 - “Trauma (Live)” - Ok, so not exactly unreleased, since I’ve already played it on the podcast, but still has yet to get a proper release. This was played for an Electric Pizza concert and it features Breck McGough on backup vocals, J.R. Edwards on Cello, and Trevor Lindley on drums. I wrote this song from the point of view of a soldier with PTSD and how this person would cope with the things they had to do in the military. This will definitely make its way onto a future album. 07:52 - “The Vicious Cycle” - This one is from the point of view of a drug addict who has gotten to the point where he no longer wants to harm his family with his addiction, but he still has a long way to go to make up for his mistakes. For whatever reason, I felt the song’s character had an accent. I think it has more to go with the production, but I think the demo shows what the song is capable of, and it’s one of my favorite songs that I’ve written. 12:16 - “Star Destroyer” - Sometimes, I give myself tasks or inspirations for future songs, like “Write a song with a mantra” or “Make a track with no sustain”. For this one, the inspiration was “Make a song like an anime opening”. There’s a story in this song, which is like an anime in itself, and it’s sci-fi inspired and pretty cheesy. It was a lot of fun to sing in this style. I know this will make it onto a future album.

I didn’t want to break up the (power) cycle of the Electric Pizza concerts, so here’s the third Power Cycle (Jonathan Edwards, Breck McGough, and myself) concert, which was on November 4th and titled “Remembrance”, inspired by November holidays. I’m not all that patriotic, but it was interesting to do. If you want to watch it, it’s on the Jazz Lab’s Facebook. 00:17 - Electric Pizza Theme - Composed and performed by L. Keith White 09:04 - Laptop Rondo - Composed by L. Keith White and Power Cycle; performed by Power Cycle 23:10 - Trauma - Composed by Santiago Ramones; performed by Power Cycle, featuring Trevor Lindley on drums 27:01 - Pastel Skies - Composed and performed by J.R.

Since I am still dealing with a cold and still don’t want to be coughing into your ears for an interview, here’s the second Electric Pizza Concert, which was a Halloween show. This is a concert that I played on October 8th of 2018 with Power Cycle, an electronic trio that includes myself (Santiago Ramones), Breck McGough, and Jonathan Edwards. We’re all graduate music composition majors and we’re led by Dr. L. Keith White. Since this is a live recording, you can hear applause, talking, mistakes, and all the other things that can be heard at a live concert. You can watch the concert on Facebook through the UCO Jazz Lab page, which I would recommend, since there are a lot of visual elements that make up the show. The program is as follows: 00:16 - Electric Pizza Theme - Composed and performed by L. Keith White 08:20 - Prelude in Fear Minor - Adapted from Johann Sebastian Bach, improvised by Power Cycle 13:26 - Discomfort 2 - Composed and performed by Santiago Ramones 15:46 - Lullaby - Composed by Breck McGough, performed by Power Cycle 20:12 - Cocaine Nightmare - Composed and performed by Santiago Ramones 24:50 - Psychokinetoscope: Hommage a John Carpenter - Composed by Breck McGough (fixed media) 28:40 - A Ghost Story - Composed and performed by J.R. Edwards 32:31 - Nosferatu - Live scored/improvised by Power Cycle; short film edit by J.R. Edwards A note about Electric Pizza Theme: This is an omnisensory piece of music that includes hearing (music), seeing (looking at the performer and pizza), feeling (holding pizza), smelling (smelling pizza), and tasting (eating pizza). While this piece is performed, pizza is delivered to the audience. A note about Nosferatu: Jonathan cut down and made a version of the original Nosferatu film, which we live scored.

This is a concert that I played on September 10th of 2018 with Power Cycle, an electronic trio that includes myself (Santiago Ramones), Breck McGough, and Jonathan Edwards. We’re all graduate music composition majors and we’re led by Dr. L. Keith White. This was the first concert of our “Electric Pizza” series, which are free concerts with free pizza at which we play experimental, original, and electronic music. Since this is a live recording, you can hear applause, talking, mistakes, and all the other things that can be heard at a live concert. You can watch the concert on Facebook, if you like.Here is the program, with timecodes: 00:19 - Electric Pizza Theme - Composed and performed by L. Keith White 08:33 - Piece for Three Laptops - Wonder - Composed by L. Keith White, performed and improvised by Power Cycle 14:55 - Mirage - Composed by Santiago Ramones, performed by Power Cycle 18:43 - The Daydreamer Meditates - Composed by Breck McGough (fixed media) 22:38 - Piece for Three Laptops - Hunger - Composed by L. Keith White, performed and improvised by Power Cycle 29:29 - Ancient Caves - Composed and performed by J. R. Edwards 33:28 - Exit - Composed by Santiago Ramones, performed by Power Cycle 37:44 - Piece for Three Laptops - The Unknown - Composed by L. Keith White, performed and improvised by Power Cycle 44:21 - Bedimming (Mvt. 1) - Composed by Breck McGough (fixed media) 47:49 - Bedimming (Mvt. 2) - Composed by Breck McGough (fixed media) 50:40 - Machinations III - Get It - Composed by Santiago Ramones, performed by Power Cycle 54:43 - Eric (excerpt) - Composed by J. R. Edwards (fixed media)A note about Piece for Three Laptops: while this piece was “composed” by L. Keith White, it’s a structured improvisation, meaning that there are loose directions given to the performers, and the performers improvise based on those directions. Each time it appears on this concert, the music is inspired by the subtitle - Wonder, Hunger, The Unknown. The music was recorded, engineered, and mixed by Bryan Mitschell.

Bit Depth 139 - Politics with Dakota
Dakota and I started with discussing Star Wars, which has some rich lore. But then we get to what we really wanted to talk about, which was politics. Obviously, we don’t agree on everything, but it’s amazing what you can find that you agree on with someone when you get to sit down and talk like real human beings. I was glad to have the conversation. You can find Dakota’s bands on Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/katlock7/https://www.instagram.com/thesweettalkersmusic/https://www.instagram.com/plutoripband/

Bit Depth 138 - Dakota Green
Dakota Green is the drummer for Kat Lock, The Sweet Talkers, and Pluto Rest in Peace. Normally, I get people on the podcast that I’m usually pretty friendly with and we end up becoming more friendly. However, Dakota and I have argued every once in a while on Facebook, and I didn’t like that. So, instead of sitting back and getting bitter about our differences, I decided that I wanted to get him on the podcast so that we could better understand our differences and get past them. I’m glad I did, because that’s what happens when you sit down and have a civilized conversation with the people you disagree with. So, get to know Dakota!

REPOST: Bit Depth 20 - Collective vs. Individual with Caleb
Hello, and again, welcome to Bit Depth. I’m Santiago Ramones. I had recorded a podcast for this week, but I was unable to use it due to my own recording mistake. Instead, here’s a repost of a podcast with an old friend. He passed away earlier this year and I miss him dearly. The text from the original posting: “After the first conversation with Caleb, he and I spent a long time talking about stuff and wanted to keep that conversation going, since we didn't get it on record. We discuss stuff like the collective vs. the individual, ideal societies, technology, and economics. While it may seem that we get a bit against each other, rest assured that we're totally civil and have absolutely no hard feelings. Such is the nature of ideological conflict. Caleb is a great friend and I look forward to having him on the podcast with other people, too.”

We talked about the Mandela Effect, 9/11, Flat Earth Theory, and Simulation Theory, among other things! You can find Sable's stuff on Instagram @sableann_creations A note about audio: for some reason, both of our microphones ended up a little distorted, and mine actually cut out at times, so in order to hear me during those times, I had to amplify Sable's audio, so you'll hear some noise when that happens. I'm not sure what happened (perhaps the government is onto us!), but I will definitely double/triple check next time!
