This is an impromptu show from this past Wednesday night. It was more of an experimental, just for fun testing type deal, not really meant to be podcast. But then disaster struck --my computer died.

If you were listening Friday at the regularly scheduled time for Sadayatana you may have noticed it was a repeat of a previous show. Well now you know why. But the podcast must go on, so here is the show from Wednesday. Computer repairs going good. See you next week.

A bit of a rough show. I did the best I could. A bit bummed out as Lucette Bourdin passed away yesterday. I didn't know her very well except by way of her music. We did get a chance to chat a bit in the stillstream chatroom. Nice lady who will live on through her music and art.

I got to play some more from Joe Frawley. This time from his release "A Book of Dreams". I alternated his Tangerine Parts I through V with tracks from the new release from Jack Anderton: "The Missing Couple". I'm not sure I did justice to either artist but it certainly complemented my feeling of melancholy.

The big event of the show was Palancar doing a live ambient train wreck improvisation in honor of Lucette Bourdin. It was a bit rough since we set it up on the fly so there is some dead air, etc. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. Thank you Palancar. A nice tribute to your friend. I hope you will play live again after I get the bugs ironed out of my setup.

Ended the show with a bunch of stuff from the great russian netlabel: Qulture. Very nice. More of this later...

This show dedicated to the memory of Lucette Bourdin. May she rest in peace.

New releases from Earth Mantra, Webbed Hand Records, Senile Dementia Productions and Kopp netlabels. A mostly russian flavored show. What can I say... so much good dark ambient music is from Russia.

I downloaded [again...] the entire catalog from Senile Dementia Productions. And I have to say... this was not fun. It was track by track one at at time. I don't understand why they don't make their music available at But I was pleased to see they are now sharing the music clearly with a creative commons license. I played several tracks from this terrific russian netlabel. Including a couple tracks from the new release by Bardosenedticcube.

A couple newish darkish releases from Earth Mantra were played. :sinclair:'s 0306 and Rigel Orionis's Variations on Sonic Integrity --these are both really nice.

A track from the new release from the kopp netlabel was cut short as I was just not in the mood for being as noisy as it was. Sorry about that. I made it up to Halgrath anyway, by ending the show with several of her tracks. I just can't get enough of that Halgrath stuff.

Show starts with a nice set by Dan Minoza streaming live from Philadelphia. Dan was playing six string guitar with drones, loops, and found-sounds with laptop processing. I like this live stuff. I hope there will be more...

Played the bell tracks from Stephen Philips' "Eternal Recurrence". Gosh I love bell music, and his are pretty good.

Played the entire album of Deepfrozenlands & [N.K.72] "The north sector of fourth level", really good dark stuff. I particularly like the crunching snow sounds.

Some tracks by Mystahr. They may have scared away some listeners. Will they scare you?
