A Wandering Daydream is a kind of sound art, broadcast experiment created by new media artist and musician Joshua Dumas. Each episode features a stereophonic field recording of a walk, interspersed with music, poetry, and chit chat. Generally gentle, meditative, and perhaps a little boring, the show hopes to transport listeners, but softly and quietly.
