Review at Sadayatana #33

Started the show with an edited version of Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries". Corny but good fun. I love the smell of 78's in the morning.

Played a lot of the music of Materia Confusa. Thanks to Webbed Hand Records for providing this great music and to Materia Confusa for making it. Really great. Big response in the chatroom too.

Thanks also to Kirill Platonkin for making his new release "Trails" available for me to include in the show.

Just a snippet of Mystified's new field recording release: "The Night". I am sure I'll be playing this more later --almost an hour of "...slightly processed field recording of night time in rural Missouri...". Jeez, everytime I go out in the middle of the night to record I end up with more bug bites than recordings. Lately I just put the recorder out there and jump back in the house. I hate bugs.

Ending the show with another 78 from 1934: Alfred Cortot playing Chopin's "Valse de l'Adieu No9 Op.69 No1 en La bemol majeur"

Opened and closed the show with some 78 rpm recordings from Vera Lynn's version of "I'm in the Mood for Love". I wanted a dirty scratchy record. Instead it had been processed to reduce the noise. So hey! I added my own noise. And then Lizzie Miles gives us "Cotton Belt Blues" to close out the show. Yea I know it's not ambient music. If I could explain why this works I would be a writer instead of dj'ing this show. Suffice it to say that it works for me, and I hope it works for you!

Also, Vera Lynn is most famous (now anyway) for singing "We'll Meet Again" at the end of Kubrick's "Doctor Strangelove".

Thanks to Pavonine for providing me with some of her unreleased material for tonight's show. Please use headphones (good ones if you have them) when listening to this show especially. Her music can be very subtle. Fantastic.

Played a lot of drone/dark ambient music from the seemingly defunct Okkulth Records netlabel. Great stuff there. More later. And the new release by Digital Mass The Murk 2. Really nice, meditative piece. The drone reminds me of Nurse With Wound's "Salt Marie Celeste". Which is a good thing. A very good thing.

Three tracks from Shinichiroa's recent Shades of the wave release on Field Noise Records netlabel.

A couple Backyard Ghost tracks. Love his stuff. Very gracious to allow me to include his music here. Finishing up with several tracks from an early Webbed Hand Records release, Tree Helicopter's "Moon Calf". Love those Conet Project samples.

Played a long mix by Christian Salva of Kopp Netlabel fame: "O How We Felt These Days". Nice mix, it fit the show very nicely. I like this netlabel quite a bit. Thank you Christian Salva!

Played a lot of stuff from the Audiotalaia Netlabel. So good. Kind of a Spanish flavor to tonight's show. Always a good thing.

New releases from Inside, Just Not Normal, and Otium netlabels. Good stuff all around.

I paticularly like the new release from Mark Stolk's Just Not Normal: Dead voices White noise, which is all about EVP. "Electronic voice phenomena (EVP) are electronically generated noises that resemble speech, but are not the result of intentional voice recordings or renderings."

Hard to beat with a stick even. Mark's last release for a while... bummer. Hurry back Mark! We miss you.

A new release from Dark winter Netlabel, Igor Karaca's "Rituelle" --I play the title track 3 times. See if you can find it as you listen.

Couple tracks from Palancar's new and old release on "Elysium Planitia". So great, I have been listening to this since it came out. Very happy to have a couple tracks from it on my show.

Some older stuff from Otium Netlabel. Good stuff there, great Russian label.

I sneak a drone track in I made myself from phone messages, a snippet. Fun. Goes nowhere but reminds me of Ligeti's "Requim", which is going somewhere I suppose, and what I had in mind. Wish I could play THAT on my show.

Played a bunch of tracks off of Chris Carter's Sound Cloud page. It's really nice that he has his stuff available there as CC music. Big fan of his music since the 70's. Oh man did I just give away my age?
