Echoes of Influence, written by Altered State Production’s Content Director, Domenique Comparetto, and produced by Eddie Castillo, Juno Complex, and Vigilantes Radio, is a deep dive into the complex intersection of business and art, taking listeners through a mind-bending experience with sound.

The powerful new podcast explores the multifaceted world of media production, commercials, brand insights, film history, and creative trends. Audiences are immersed in a thought-provoking experience characterized by investigative interviews, rich soundscapes, carefully curated music, and special effects (SFX).

The debut episode, "It Sounds Complex", follows the compelling journey of musical artist JunoComplex, who, despite severe memory loss, has rediscovered himself as an artist.  Simultaneously, the episode seamlessly weaves in the concept of Sonic Branding, unraveling how companies create memorable audio logos, jingles, and soundscapes.  As the narrative unfolds, the episode pulls back the curtain on the history and psychological reasoning behind the iconic sounds that define our favorite brands, setting the stage for deeper understandings in episodes to come.

Listeners will be transported by the rich soundscape and intense narratives, each episode offering a wealth of industry insights and trends through investigative interviews. Expect to be challenged and inspired as the show explores how sound influences branding and impacts our daily choices.
