and the rain must fall

When the skies turn grey, our minds tend to close in on themselves as an attempt to both provide cover for our fragile creative grey matter as well as a spiritual shield that helps us fast forward to the next sunny day, the next bright moment. The skies I'm talking about are both the physical and the metaphorical. The metaphorical being the darker moments that seem to weave in and out of the better moments during our journey upon Mother Earth. If we had no setbacks, no dips in our our good fortune, and no dull moments within the glistening sea of bliss, we would not have an accurate way to measure our successes. We would not have a reliable means to balance our joy against the temporary grain, and the value of our rejoicing would be lost. 

Let's dip our toes into a puddle of equally balanced light and dark, of perfectly brewed yin and yang. With this particular journey, take the stress that weighs you down, put it in a basket, and let if seep into the tiny puddle that flows to the sea. Every venture with Spaceman's Transmissions is intended to be an enlightening path that picks up the rough stones of turmoil and shines them into shiny pebbles that light the way. Take repeated listens to this episode when you feel you've lost your way and need a bit of guidance through the color and light that the staff here seek to share. Along the way, be sure to share a bit of good vibe with those around you in need of that guidance. That's karma. Peace.

Turn on, tune in, stay dry...

at the edge of this world

Let's embark on a path that takes us to to the edge of the world to get a glimpse among the stars. We'll need a special tapestry to aid us in our liftoff and provide us with security while experiencing zero gravity. Do not be afraid of letting your mind go for a mere hour of the journey. Rest assured that you old boy Tonepoet will guide you safely during every phase of our semi-astral deployment (I am and will always be right alongside you during our journeys). 


It is time to find that envelope that separates the seam of our world and the beyond. Within this envelope is a key that could be hidden in a tight corner pocket of the envelope, just out of sight. We can't find it with our eyes, we find it with our ears and mind. Use this key to start the engine to the pod that we will call our home for this session. The eyes create a specific friction that we call 'distraction' and it robs us of our peaceful and effortless travels to that universe where we unlock the secrets of creative mobility and boundless potential. It isn't our eyes to create pathways that are instrumental in the creative means to achieve situational success. Rather, it is our minds that are the Rube Goldberg machinery for which we develop our innovative resolve. Let's assemble that aural contraption that brings us closer to understanding that galaxy beyond our own. With this said contraption, we will succeed staying grounded while having a head full of stars. A complex yet perfected amalgamation of space music and earthy colors allows us to saddle these alternately diverse scenarios.

There is nothing wrong with having your head in the clouds (or the stars) and keeping your feet planted firmly upon Mother Earth. As we taste the stars and bathe within the cosmos, allow yourself to become replenished and renewed with an appreciation of your existence. Share this session with a fellow traveler in need of aural transmission to escape the hum-drum of their routine.

Turn on, tune in, ascend...

hibernation poems

Hello, fellow travelers of light and sound. It is I, Tonepoet, your host here at Spaceman's Transmissions and co-pilot of the pod that will once again allow us to drift above and beyond the real turmoil that exists all around us. It is with concentrated effort that we will construct a journey that glides on sound, far above and beyond the terminal frosting of our beloved Mother Earth. In fulfilling the suggested lighted path of our course, we will find that it gives us a rebirth of creative focus. Give yourself a mere hour on this flight to rise above the worldly concerns that prohibit our necessary flow that brings peace, comfort, and a sense of self-worth.

It is winter (for half of the world, and definitely where I am) right now. The days are shorter, the nights colder, and our bodies seek to adjust to new and unwelcome situations like frigidly uncomfortable hands and feet. As most might believe that the world is dying during this season, that assumption is far from the truth. Mother Earth is merely adding a coat of wax to her beautiful figure so that the journey through the blue starlit ether is a smooth one. Rather than lamenting on the process, let us celebrate this vital step that guarantees us a transformed shiny, new vessel that will sail us through the galaxy. Call it a necessary evil, but it is more likely a replenishing hibernation. Realizing that our drift is not to ignore the glorious event that is unfolding (that event called 'winter'), but rather an assessment of the value that it truly possesses. 

One last thing. This session, while calibrated for the period of winter solstice, is available and free for use in any season. Come back to it anytime you want, even if only as a reminder that there is a period of renewal that yields a brighter horizon. Peace.

Turn on, tune in, sleep...


(note: I lost all of my music a few weeks ago (thanks to a defective external hard drive) with the exception to what I have gathered in the last 1 1/2 years. Thanks to everyone that has sent me music since then, it is helping me stay afloat. Luckily, I uploaded some things to a few clouds that I was able to save. I will forge forward and promise much more content this year than last.)

dreamers, unite!

It's been a good while since I've had the opportunity to sit down and review a good bit of the music that I've been sent (thank you all for sending music, I've gotten so very much and it means a lot to me!). During that time, I've had to tend to some personal matters. This required a re-routing of my original destination in effort to assist wandering souls in calibrating their compasses to pinpoint and sustain an optimal voyage destination. It can sometimes feel as though it is a thankful task, but it never goes unnoticed. Touching the hearts and souls of others is and will always be the reward for which no monetary value can determine.

Throughout any turmoil from others as well as myself, I sought to lose myself within the colorful universe of our collectively cherished existence: the beauty and solace of music. Even now as I present to you my travel log that exposes my deepest thoughts, I am swimming deeply in an ocean that is created by swirling magical colors, riding a peaceful current of pillow-soft dreams, and capturing the visions that will never have capable words to describe them. It would be selfish of me to not break off a piece of this hypnotically beautiful confection to share with like-minded wandering travelers. Rather than to present raw ingredients without appropriate instructions, I relish that ability to package this experience into a digestible morsel for your ears and mind. This offering is certified organic and uses only the freshest ingredients for every palate to enjoy. And it's allergy-free!

This particular session is guaranteed to rearrange the mental clutter that is slowing your creative mind, all by attaching a saddle to your dreams and ambitions with the intent that you will guide that personal journey. Your grey matter is stronger than any computer that will ever be built, but it is also susceptible to way too much useless static. This static robs your synapses of ability and dirties up your creative thoughts, all while borrowing precious space within your mental universe that should otherwise be used for those things in life that truly inspire you. This mix is also a safeguard against the impending turmoil that creeps up like a dark foreboding cloud and seeks to light a path of illumination and resolution. 

Use this session as an awake or asleep time to collect, gather, and sort your clutter. Rearrange and recycle yourself, and keep the coals hot with inspiration. 





*shameless plug: I put out a new album and I'd love for you all to enjoy it. It can be found here: or also on all streaming media (search 'tonepoet'). Remarks complete.

lullabies for the skyward soul

Let us gather up our mental baggage for a drop into the deep blue abyss of space. In undertaking this mission, our soul purpose is to sort out the tribulations of life that are weighing us down. As we sail into the cosmos, allow the weightlessness of space to assist you in gathering up and sorting the difficulties that you face into manageable statuses of priority. Tackle these situations with the determination that you will succeed in the task of putting them behind you with a closure of your desiring. Rely on those that have looked to you for guidance in such circumstances with the understanding that a team of cosmonauts will always outweigh the effectiveness of the sole traveler. Remember to return favor when they need you, and assure them of your gratitude with the gift of friendship.


This session will serve as your in-flight entertainment, and there is no additional cost for such an amenity aboard this flight. As the captain of this flight (that's me), your attendance as the co-pilot is greatly appreciated. Even with the controls manned by myself in this venture, you are nonetheless a very vital asset to this mission. Together, we will take on the obstacles that seek to sway the path and obstruct your success. Let us witness the cosmos in a way that is unique to each of us, taking in sights and sounds designed to renew our minds and souls.

Thanks for boarding this flight with me, I look to many more ventures together in the future. Keep on keepin' on. Peace.

Turn on, tune in, blast off...
